I don’t see how mocha and tan would clash with fuschia? (Am I just dense?)

Especially as they’re the floor & wall colour?? I think your guests attention will be mostly focused “inward” on the room and on the tables/centerpieces & the overall look/feel of the room, rather than what colour the floor & walls are??

 I will say that if your budget can swing it, maybe some sort of backdrop/draping thing behind the head table to minimize the biggest expanse of wall that people will be looking at would be a good idea.

If you love love love fuschia, then go with it. You’re not going to be happy unless you do & I think you know that! So go for it!

I think you can totally pull off fuschia in that space!  Your decor is what will be focused on, not the floor or wall color.  Maybe a little lighting might help to, if you can make that work?

@pinkbride2012: Am I wrong in assuming the gold is minimal? And no, I don’t think the gray would clash (and black goes with anything). If you’re worried about it, I’d make gray the accent colour & focus more on the fucshia and black. For curiousities sake – what were you thinking of doing in gray?

@pinkbride2012: I wouldn’t even notice the light fixtures, to be honest. Like, not even in the slightest.

And all your ideas sound AWESOME. I’m also having gray/silver as one of my wedding colours, so the BM’s dresses will also be gray/silver ๐Ÿ™‚ But back to you, lol.

So. Yes. I LOVE your ideas. Have you thought of just doing a silver runner over the white linen instead of a full on overlay or tablecloth? 

I personally like the idea of a table for favours (that could double as seating cards?) instead of at each place setting – I feel its more of a visual impact and less clutter on the actual table. But to each their own, of course. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Are you doing chair covers/sashes? And, again personally, I would add strands of clear crystal to hang down from your centerpieces for an extra added “oomph”. Plus, they’d reflect the light from the candles and look super pretty. But again, just my personal opinion, of course.

I have never noticed the surrounding room colors attending receptions.  Instead, I notice tablecloths, centerpieces, bridesmaid dresses, accent colors in flowers, candles and other decor.  Go for the fuchsia!

I think I meant to type fuschia.  How is it spelled – fuchsia or fuschia?  Looks really weird either way.

If you’re uber scared I’d just dim the lights, drape fabric everywhere and do uplighting in fushcia.  That way you set a really cool mood and you get your fuschia everwhere!

go for what you want! The focus is going to be on your fabulous tables, not the reception area. ๐Ÿ™‚

My colors are dark purple and burnt orange, and my venue has light floral wallpaper. I’m not too worried about it matching. ๐Ÿ™‚

Pomander Rose balls or lantern for wedding ceremony aisle decor??? or both? :  wedding Ibb 1260485314.400.jpg

I like fucshia, ivory, black for your wedding colors. It will go well with the gold fixtures and the tan walls.

I think youre colors could work out just fine! We did black, white, red and aqua in a room that was dark brown, sky blue and gold. You couldnt even tell the color schemes were different.
