Reception has BRIGHT red floors. My favorite color is green!!! Can I use green without making it look like Christmas? My wedding is in the spring…maybe if I use other colors with the green like pink and yellow? What shades? STRESSINGGGGGG!! Please let me know if you have any ideas or PICTURES!:)

Is it an evening wedding? You could try lighting.

Unless the color green you had in mind was like….Tree Green then I don’t think it’s a HUGE issue. I do think incorporating another color would be a good idea. I think a light summery green and a light pink would be fine with a little red.
One of the walls in our reception site is a pretty sage green and the chairs have bits of burgundy in them. Our main color though is DARK purple. So we mainly have dark purple, some green, and bits of burgundy to tie them all together.
Example: The bouts will have ribbon in each color, but the purple ribbon is a thicker width than the green or burgundy. Same with centerpieces – mostly purple, with bits of green and bits of burgundy to make it more cohesive. I realize it sounds like a mess, but it looks great. 🙂

We were looking into a venue that had bright red carpet. We ultimately didn’t end up choosing it, but I’ve been to a lot of weddings there, and have seen every color scheme imaginable done there. It didn’t look too bad, but the weddings where the carpet was less visibly RED were the ones with some sort of uplighting/lush floral decor that could take away from the harsh red tone of the carpet.
As far as it looking like christmas, what type of green did you want to use, and how?

Don’t worry about the color scheme. The floors might not even show up in the pictures. 🙂
A professional photographer friend told me that the venue near me that has a red ceiling is a huge problem for some cameras. I guess it bounced light differently than other colors?

Wedding is at 4pm with Reception to follow (so yes evening..)
I was thinking a light green and maybe pinks and yellows. There is A LOT of color at this place so I am having trouble tying it into my wedding. It has the red floors and decorated walls covered with Retro things. If it were just the floors I could probably ignore the colors there, but there are A LOT of decorations in reds. VERY RETRO (old cars, old fashioned soda/icecream bar re-creation environment. I think it will be a lot of fun… I just can not figure out colors that won’t clash.
