We’re trying to narrow down our wedding colors. We know that some shade of blue is our main color. However, some trouble is coming up with the accent color. I had originally wanted purple, since that’s his favorite color, but he thinks the two colors don’t go. He suggested blue and orange, which I do think look nice. Our third option is just taking blue and using all kinds of different shades of blue, although then I think our flowers would possibly be limited to pretty much just hydrangeas, which I suppose would be ok.
Which combination do you think would look the best? The colors at the location are pretty muted. The walls are white, chairs are gold and the floor is a muted brown/tan color.
When you used your color combination did you stick to specific colors? Like when I say blue and purple or blue and orange I’d rather just use variants of both colors in different shades than stick to one specific shade of each color.
If using two different colors, I’d prefer to use brighter shades of each color than the more pastel shades.

I personally would stick to the main colors once you pick them. Variants can make it look messy. I would pick a third color for ‘pops’ of color, so it doesn’t look like a sea of blue and purple/blue and orange.
I personally love the idea of blue and purple, but that’s only because I’m not a fan of orange.
but, I’m sure you could do something nice either way! Just try and get inspiration from looking on wedding blogs like Stylemepretty.com or projectwedding.com and you’ll get a better idea of what you want.

Did you google blue and purple wedding inspiration boards? I just did, and there are a bunch out there. Show him a few of your favourites to prove they can work well together, and see if he sticks to his guns or not.

I think that using several different shades of blue with orange as an accent would be LOVELY, especially for a summer wedding like yours. I’d do one sort of bright blue, one lighter one (maybe Tiffany blue?), and then orange to add contrast. It would look fantastic.

I’m doing all different shades of green and we had thought that same idea over with shades of blue… so my vote goes to shades of blue… it can be done beautifully!
