I actually love the idea of those colors. I think if you do all of them in rich hues it wil be fabulous. Especially with it being a fall wedding.You will not run short on ideas for accents, centerpieces, etc with those colors.

I originally wanted to do our wedding in similar tones. I had found some wonderful tea-length Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses that I loved. I was going to have the dress a deep chocolate and the thick sash that goes around the waist was actually going to be a color called “peacock”. They were beautiful.

 I ended up keeping the same dresses for my BM’s just went with a different scheme.

I think the colors might have been too heavy if it were in the early afternoon, but with your time frame it will definitely look good!

Any ideas for centerpieces, or the general theme (ie-elegant, traditional, quirky, modern) that you guys are going for?

I think that if its a night time wedding then it will look really good….I really wish you had an inspiration board! it would help us get a better idea of what you are thinking 😉

I have the mentality if you like those colors who cares what others think go for it!  For mine the colors are navy blue, silver and white. Those are soooo more Christmas colors but am having a June wedding. 

I say go for it!

@BRbee:I think these colors work best for an evening or winter wedding. They are a little dark.

That color scheme sounds absolutely amazing to me, especially for an autumn wedding. You can always add in some white or ivory (depending upon your dress) to offset anything that feels too heavy.

The jewel/peacock tones sound great, but I’m not sure about the chocolate brown as a light accent color.  Maybe gold to brighten it up?  Like this inspiration board (they use a dark teal instead of sapphire).

Oh this will be beautiful!  I actually was thinking about this color scheme as well, until I found the scheme I have now.  I think if you definitely add ivory accenting it will lighten up the scheme.  Going so so dark takes away from the ‘purity’ and ‘joy’ that weddings bring.  I don’t know if you are wanting the peacock/brown to be a bold theme or a elegant.  If bold, add WHITE accents/sashes and DIAMOND!  If elegant, add IVORY accents/sashes and PEARLS.  The sashes, if you are keeping the dresses dark with dark sashes, could have diamond and/or pearl embellishments or pins.  Your flowers, can be a white with peacock feathers intertwined.  It is dark, but you can do little things like this to keep things bright!

Okay, do white accents and DIAMONDS and WHITE FEATHERS… 🙂

No, they are not too dark at all…I love the inspiration board you put together!  I think the idea of specific colors only being “allowed” to be used in certain seasons is falling by the wayside.  It’s your wedding, you should do what you love.  I’m getting married in August and having a dark purple, silver, and dark grey color scheme.  Every time I go pick something out (like table cloths), I hear “oh, this was a really popular color for weddings last fall or winter.”  I just don’t care—I love the colors, so I’m using them for August!
