I need some advice!
I have already chosen robin’s egg blue as a main color for our wedding… Now I want to find an accent color that will help liven it up! I’m thinking grassy or emerald green for several reasons:
1. I’m a red-head and I don’t think red or pink tones are flattering when they’re close to me :).
2. We’re both outdoors-y and this combination reminds me of a clear sky & the fields around our house.
3. Green & blue are my favorite colors. ‘Nuff said.
4. Our wedding is in the spring, around the time that we up north are all but dying in anticipation of green plants & blue skies!
Has anyone seen/done this combination? How did it turn out? Any advice for how to work in the green? I’d like to keep most of the big stuff (tablecloths, briesmaid dresses) blue and I plan on using white flowers. Thanks a bazillion!

I think a bright green would be fun. You could even do a lime green.
Have you considered yellow or gold? I’m a redhead too and yellows and golds look really good on me.
You could even do robins egg blue, a bright citrus-y yellow and a soft green.

I love this color idea. It’s different, so your wedding will stand out. And the colors will really pop against each other. Well done!

I haven’t seen this color combination before, but I think it sounds awesome. I think the emerald green would really pop against the robin’s egg blue. And it would look fantastic with your red hair. 🙂 I like the idea of white flowers against those two colors, I think adding a third, bold color might be too much.

Red heads usually look fantasic in bright pink/fuschia…which would certainly liven up the robins egg blue.

Love! They would make a perfect combination! A deep purple may also work.

I’m also doing blue & green for my wedding with little hints of purple. My shoes and flowers will be purple, and there’ll be a hint of purple in the centerpieces. Here’s an inspiration board I made in case that will help you. Blue & green are complimentary so you cant go wrong. Dont get too stressed out if the shades dont match perfectly… it’ll all work out great! [attachment=233563,24653]
