I am so stressed out with picking a wedding colour pallet. I am getting married in June at a winery and the existing reception decor in the building is quite brown and rustic. I really want my wedding to be classy and elegant and I don’t want brown in my wedding – but I feel like I should use it because of the venue!! Should I just do my own colours and risk the browns fighting, or just embrace it??
Also I was thinking black and burgandy colours – is that too dark for a June 30 wedding???
I need input before I cancel the whole thing!!!

I really wanted a black and blush pink color scheme, but ultimately we went with a venue that had a lot of gold/beige/salmon tones. We found it best to coordinate our palette with the venue, as its more aesthetically pleasing.
However, that doesn’t mean you have to do browns at all! Brown is pretty neutral, so you can play around with a multitude of colors. Do you have pictures of the venue?
Also, I do think black/burgundy are pretty dark for a June wedding.

Darn! Ya I thought so too – I’ll find a pic of the venue. What about black, white and apple green?

@Naia-raine: Love black, white, and apple green together. That would be beautiful.

If there is that much brown, I would advise using more of the color it sounds like you do not care for.
I do think black and burgundy would be too heavy for June. The black not so much if you paired it with a lighter color but if there is a lot of brown in the venue then personally, I wouldn’t use black as a color.
Instead of burgundy, how about coral-ish pomegranate? It would be more of a contrast with the brown, lighter for the summer, and still incorporate the idea of a winery/grape color. The shade will also go well with the greenery of the venue.
For an dash of an accent color, you could use a sage green… perhaps so far as a mint color if you found the right shade of coraly-pomegaranate. The green will go with the brown in the venue, the greenery of the winery, is a summery color and would go great if you are using flowers.
Colors are all very specific to your tastes, of course… but I will 2nd what mrscheetos said: coordinate your palette with the venue!

Black, white and apple green sound lovely.
I also think purples look great with brown.
I like these palettes according to what you described your venue to be (I found these on the perfect palette web site):

This is a link to the winery. I agree with you both! Unfortunately I’m having a hard time accepting it I think – I was wanting to go with a wine colour/theme with the burgandy … I’m not heart set on it. I’ll look more into those colours diet coke, thanks 🙂

Oh, that venue is gorgeous!
I was thinking some dark brown wood like paneling or something. I think the apple green would be lovely with ivory and pops of yellow.

With colors it really depends on how they’re done – from your description it seems colors that will go with the ‘rustic’ feel would be appropriate. Here’s some things from theperfectpalette.com that use the apple green scheme that look lovely, however I don’t think black and white are going to be the best matches for it considering it is a rustic looking room. But if you tweak it just a tiny bit and do black instead of gray I think it could be great. Check this site out:
