@Mrs. Mouse: My favorite color pair is Turqoise and Almond so I immediantely knew that I wanted to incorporate that into my wedding. Our date was in fall so we figured that the rest of the colors should be influenced by the season. We stayed true to romantic blues that paired nicely with turquoise while allowing every color to build off the almond base 🙂
I think the best advice I can give is for a bride to find a pair of colors that she loves! Whether it be purple and gold or black with pink. When you have a color scheme you can easily tie a rooms decor together or you can complete a match set. However, I personally think that even though you should have two main colors it is always wise to add variety. Colors that compliment your choices help soften the look of a planned wedding. Sometimes having perfectly matched decor makes the vibe a little stiff 🙂
Here are some wedding pictures to show our colors:

I wanted crazy bright, fun colors, but my husband thought they weren’t formal enough. So he convinced me to go with gray and navy. But I couldn’t let go of bright colors, so we also had bright pink (my favorite color) and bright green (mostly as a nod to the Sounders). I really loved the whole combo, very pretty, fun, but not overwhelming. Plus I liked that the whole bridal party wore gray, but my brother and Maid/Matron of Honor had pink accents, and his brother and best man had green accents (and he had blue accents with a darker gray suit).
Our flowers and tables were a good representation of the colors:
