I’m in the very early stages of wedding planning and have become stuck with colour schemes
My fiance and I are planning on getting married in a flint thatched roof cottage surrounded by woodland and lake, so I’d love a country/ arts n’ crafts style wedding.
My dress is slightly warmer than ivory and is lace tiers from the waist down.
Originally, I thought an apricot or burnt orange would be great (as these colours look great with my dress). However, I’ve since changed my mind after falling in love with a purple/lilac/blue bouquet. I’ve created a moodboard featuring teals/purple/greens and yellow and LOVE it, but I can’t help but worry that it might look bad in real life! I can’t bring myself to start ordering decorations in these colours.Would it be too busy with so many different colours? I’d probably focus on teal and purple, with splashes of green and yellow.
I’d be grateful for opinions! Thank you for reading!

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 love the pictures of the wedding you linked! I keep second guessing my choices but your comments really helped
Thank you ^.^

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. 🙂
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. 🙂
I reall love this next board, the teals and green look so sharp together. 🙂
Teal, purple and green 🙂
Here’s one way to have teal purple and green on a table.
Maybe some of those will give you a bit of inspiration. 🙂

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.

Hey fellow bees!
Thank you all for the advice and images. I’ll definitely stick to a single shade of each colour, maybe focus on teal and purple with a few decorations in yellow and green.
I’m desperately searching for bunting at the moment and came across a gorgeous purple, so I think purple and teal would work best as main colours.
Thank you again for everyones help!

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