I think doing chocolate brown, cream, and some various shades of pink (like a lighter pink with pops of fuschia) would be absolutely GORGEOUS!!!  And there are a lot of bridesmaids’ dresses out there now that are two colors.  Ours were satin, chocolate brown with light blue trim.  Or you could have a lighter shade of pink dresses with a fuschia sash.  And since pink is your favorite color, you should definitely use it.  It’s your day – put your signature on it!

The guys?  add a pop of pink with a ribbon around the stem of the boutonniere, no need to go overboard there (maybe focus on the cream with them).

All in all, there are a MILLION ways (or more) to work with a color palette like that, and it would make for a beautiful wedding!
Hope that helps a bit!

i think the combination of pink will work really well. i think you can still use your brown or creme for the bridesmaids dresses and tux vests or ties and have pink-shaded flowers that will stand out really well in contrast. i am planning on bright/deep colors (orange and pink in october) but choosing not to have my bms wear those colors but rather a champagney/gold so their bouquets will pop. 🙂 plus, that way the guys don’t have to do either pink or orange

good luck!

  • Wedding: October 2007 - Organic farm an hour from San Francisco

that was pretty much my colors, although I ended up not having colors…. I used a lot of ivory and white with raspberry and chocolate brown. :)  So I say, go for it.

One thing I will recommend for colors for fall weddings is to try to avoid using brown as one of your main colors.  The majority of weddings in the fall use brown and if you have guests who go to a wedding every other weekend, they will see brown at all weddings.  Because it is fall, I love the use of brown, but I suggest you keep brown as your base color (ie, table cloth, linens) and use other colors for your centerpieces and Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses. 

Fushia is a great color, and more vibrant than pink (which is also very popular).  We just did a wedding last weekend that was so beautiful.  She used cream and green as her main colors, and reddish brown (not chocolate) for her linens.  Her bridesmaids wore champagne.  It was all beautiful, yet subtle and played really well together.

  • Wedding: September 2008

Congratulations!  My wedding date is September 6th as well!  I think it should also depend on the location of your wedding, if it has a warmer climate or on the beach, you can have more bright colors to distinguish your wedding from the rest of the fall weddings.

I just went to a brown and pink wedding this summer actually!

Bridesmaid dresses were brown, with pink sashes, pink and cream flowers everywhere! Also the groomsmen were in nice suits instead of tuxes!

Just a thought! 😉

  • Wedding: April 2008

We’re doing chocolate brown/ivory for our April 2008 wedding, with pink as an accent color (our theme is ‘cherry blossoms/Japan’). Bridesmaids will be in brown dresses of their choosing, and I am making them ivory sashes.

Flowers will be pink, but most things (linens, stationary, Bridesmaid or Best Man attire) will be ivory and brown. I just see it as a ‘warmer’ black/white/pink theme, really. I hope that down the road it will look just as classic. 🙂
