I love your inspiration board, and I don’t think the colors look too busy on it at all.  It really reminds me of the color scheme of this wedding, but with a little twist by adding more green in.  I say go for it!

I think you’ll have to be careful with mixing the colors so it doesn’t feel too circus-y (unless you are going for that!) and feels more eclectic…

What about some of these ideas?

I love the yellow with the teal mason jars. πŸ™‚

Lots of teal, greens and yellows in this inspiration board

I just love the lavender color with the burlap… There’s a little teal in the background.

Minus the pink in this, these are most of your colors. πŸ™‚

I reall love this next board, the teals and green look so sharp together. πŸ™‚

Teal, purple and green πŸ™‚

Here’s one way to have teal purple and green on a table.

Maybe some of those will give you a bit of inspiration. πŸ™‚

I really like the green, yellow and blues together.  I’m not sure about the purple meshing with it though.  I feel like my eye attracts straight to it.  I wonder if just a lighter shade would work?  I think part of me goes straight to it because it has such a darker feeling than the other colours (because of the darker purples). 

 
But definitely a fan of the idea of many colours.  I’m planning on doing four as well.  A friend (an artist) gave me good advice though.  Stick to one shade of each colour to avoid it being too busy/crazy/circusy.

This is what I’m thinking fo right now: http://www.snippetandink.com/board-423-so-much-color.html/#comments

I agree with pp…I don’t think the purple works. The pics you have in your inspiration board basically work together, except for the purple bouquet. If you are going to go with that many colors, you really should pic a specific shade of each. If you have a much of different greens, a bunch of different yellows, and a bunch of different blues, it won’t look cohesive. But if you pick apple green, lemon yellow, and pool blue, for example, you can make it work.

Try apple green. I am having almost the same dillema, I think that is the type of green we are both looking for πŸ˜‰
