The carpet in the ballroom of my reception venue is a little over the top. I dont love it but I have to deal with is so I want to make sure my color scheme matches somewhat so it all ties together. Here is a pic:
It is the heritage ballroom picture.
I wanted to definitely incorporate peach and gold but not sure what color the bridesmaid dresses should be? I don’t really want to do red so I was thinking dark raspberry, teal, gold? Any ideas??

@bmr1022: I was thinking gold/champagne when I saw the picture.

I’m not sure I would match the entire bridal party to the carpet. The guests are going to wonder “Did she plan her scheme around this carpet?” lol
It’s a beautiful ballroom – I would go with gold or champagne as well. Keep it neutral (in a sense). But, definitely not teal. Too much vast of color and it WILL look like the carpet. Good luck!

Teal could be really wonderful with maybe peach/orange accents in the flowers and stuff. I had contemplated this color scheme myself when we were planning on a fall wedding but then we went winter and that scheme went away. I had saved this pic though

My reception is at the Pittsburgh Marriott, and they have some crazy carpeting too! The link above has pictures on it, there’s two different ballrooms shown, mine is the one that does not have the chandeliers. But I am not planning on matching anything to my carpet. It will be darker in the room so im hoping most people don’t notice how loud it is. The light fixtures in the room are these curly white things (hard to describe). So since my colors are as of today lol black and white i think that will work.
so unless you love the colors that are in that carpet, I wouldn’t necessarily match them.

I don’t think that you need to plan around the carpet… most people have been in a ballroom before and they all have crazy carpet.
I think that lots of champagne, peach and gold would be lovely in that room. Raspberry accents would look great, or teal as in that inspiration board would be nice also. I could also see navy.
Don’t worry about the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses, since you won’t be taking formal pics in there (I assume) and the rest of your guests won’t dress around the carpet. If you do peach/gold as your main colors then any of those colors would look nice in your scheme… if I had to wear it I’d want raspberry, brown, champagne … not gold or peach.

Thanks for all the advice! I just didn’t really want to have like, purple flowers and centerpieces and everything on the table be completely different from the carpet. I really like the colors of peach, gold, champagne, etc but still trying to decide what color dresses my bridesmaids should wear since I have been having a hard time finding a peach color I like, and sometimes I think gold doesn’t look good on some skin tones. Thanks for the input!
