Okay so I think I’m not the only one with this problem but I’m still pretty undecided about my colors :(. I thought pale green and white would be great but now I’m getting confused everyone mentioned that green would look to dull and the combination of flowers would be difficult to acquire under a tight budget. Then i thought why not burgundy to liven it up a bit. Burgundy, green and white. I don’t really like how green and red look together and it reminds me too much of christmas. Ahh its driving me crazy. Is anyone else doing green and white? How are you arranging your colors in terms of the tables? helpp…

I think green and white looks fresh and clean and pretty together. You could also add black and some pink if you wanted another color. What shade of green are you doing?

I was thinking about adding a shade of pink as well. I will definitely add on another color . Hmm didn’t think about black, that’s a good one! I’m not sure about the shade of green I want it to be bright but not too bright maybe forest green? I’m not sure 🙁

I think a bright cheery apple green with a nice peony pink (e.g. Ralph Lauren/Lilly Pulitzer colors) would be pretty and perfect for an August wedding in California. I also like apple green with royal navy. White will work with both combinations.

I think that green and white look really nice together. We are doing all of our flowers in green and white! I have even heard that green flowers can be less expensive. If you like green and white just go with it, its your day.
If you want to add another color that would look good too. I am using blue (kinda like a royal but a little darker), white and green. For the tables, I am doing white table cloths, blue napkins, white and green flowers on tall tree branches. Im using the blue as the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses but all the other stuff is mainly green and white.
I don’t know about the burgundy, I feel the same way with red and green together. You would have to make sure the shades are perfect to not think christmas. Otherwise pink blue or black would look great. If you google color combinations they should come up with some examples.

It would be tough, but I think you could get away with burgundy if you were only using it in very small amounts. For example, you could add it as ribbon on your bouquet or on the napkin rings on your table. Less will be more with this color combination.
If you’re looking for something similar but easier to incorporate I’d go with a red brown. Something close to mahogany and I’d incorporate it using natural wood elements.
If however you decide to go in another direction altogether, I love lilbluebird’s suggestion of navy.

Okay so my initial thought was that if you want to do a pale green and white, that maybe you should add an ivory or off white color? Or even a champagne color? I think it’d look awesome together and give it just enough character rather than just pale green and white. Also, you could keep the pale green and white and maybe add a different shade of green (like the deep forest green that you mentioned before) to it. I think a pale green and a light pink does go together as well, too. Is it like an outdoor or garden themed wedding??

I think pale green and white would look very clean and fresh. Sounds pretty! If you feel the need to add another color, what about a pale pink or lavender? Or maybe even just silver as an accent?? 🙂 Let us know what you decide.

I attended a wedding where my SO was the best man for his friend in July, and their colors were pale green and white. I was wary about the colors at first (I knew what they were because of my SO’s tux fitting) but the wedding was really REALLY beautiful. I also had a cousin use pale green several years ago. I’d say go with your first instinct!
