I had a color scheme I loved. Irrelevant now, as it simply cannot be used due to major, major clashing with our venues.
The ceremony site we have rented is a historic home with lots and lots of wood. Our reception is being held at our favorite restaurant, where there is wood with maroon and yellow (think cornflower). Our wedding is in June, so the colors are a bit heavy and I’d like to lighten it up a bit. My dress is ivory.
Please help with any suggestions you might have! Inspiration boards MORE than welcome!!!

raspberry pink (bright but not hot pink), chartreuse, dark grey, ivory

i think you could DEFINITELY keep the chartreuse. i was actually going to suggest it before, too. it can lighten up your palette and liven it up! plus, it should go well with maroon and the cornflower yellow. other than that, i’d suggest accents of ivory (or some other light color) just to make sure things aren’t too dark?
maybe similar to this:

I agree with laceywings– the chartreuse could lighten up the palette and look really good.
Alternatively, you could work in some light blue and maybe even keep some touches of your raspberry color:

I also agree with keeping the Chartreuse. I found this board I think it would be pretty colors for a summer wedding! My wedding is also in June! It will be a good month for weddings 🙂

What about pastels & white?: Pick one colour and have the majority of your flowers/decor be pastel & white/ivory with occasional splashes of a darker shade of the same colour.

I had no idea that you even had to choose wedding colors, now I realize the importance.
