    These all look good- I like the first or second best.

    I think the first combo looks the most Steampunk-y to me.

    We are going for a romantic, Victorian theme, so base on that and the additional Steampunk-meets-Anthropologie and your ivory gown, I picked the 3rd one; Slate Blue, Light Blue, Gold, Latte, Chocolate Brown and Ivory. I really think those colors would go best and you could do a lot with them.

    I like the first one- but with apple green added to it.  I think it just needs a ‘pop’ and apple green would give it that.

    I also think you can stick with the charcoal grey chairs 🙂

    Though you don’t want to overwhelm yourself with too many colours, so I would lean toward the last option fern/latte/ivory (as your base) and then add complimentaries here and there to tie it together.

    The deep rich colours are what make me say this.

    I think that the colours will be a bit dark with the venue, but in a more old world elegance kind of way YKWIM?


    as a guest I want my ass not to get sore during any long periods of sitting. 

    The chairs in the photos are not bad, and as a guest I prob wouldn’t notice them. (as someone planning of course I notice, but they are really not that bad at all –I have definitely seen worse).

    Love the QC avatar–makes me grin  every time I see it!

    @noritake22: I second this.  I think the gold is key for a Victorian-influenced theme.  I don’t really know much about Steampunk other than the basics, but I am totally obsessed with the Victorian aesthetic (I mean, you can see it in my attire, my decor, and how I spend my time in general), and gold really makes a Victorian palette.  I initially had planned for my Victorian-influenced wedding colors to be navy, pale blue, lavender, gold, and ivory, so that palette is really close and would, I think, work really well.  The slate blue and chocolate give it a tough, steampunk-y edge.

    I also don’t think that any of your options feature “too many” colors.  I think limiting yourself to just two colors gets too matchy-matchy.  We’re probably not having wedding colors at all now.  Just using a buttload of colors that work well together and fit the general feel of the wedding.

    I voted for the first one, but I don’t really think that any of your color schemes really said anthropologie to me. That said, I don’t really know what steampunk is so they could be going with that? I think there are too many blues. I don’t really see them as being too anthro but thats just me.
