(tee hee! my first post!)
Help me with my colour palette Hive!
Below is the bridesmaids dresses I bought ($180 reduced to $130 SCORE!!!) for my girls because I absolutely adore them, and I wanted to pay tribute to my mum, who also had yellow bridemaid dresses. The groomsmen are wearing charcoal grey with pale yellow ties.
I want an accent colour to use in the decor and the flowers, but I don’t want to use the dominant fuschia/purple colour in the dress.

But, we are doing charcoal grey, mustard yellow, with blue and green accents if that helps any.

Celadon green? I’m doing pewter grey and yellow but I’m going the fuschia accent route 🙂

Turquoise and grey and turquoise and yellow are always classic color combos. I can’t see the dresses but the “tone” of the turquoise should match that of the yellow. I.E. if the yellow is pastel then the turquoise should be pastel, but if the yellow is a bright, the turquoise should be a bright.
Have you thought about white? I know you’ll probably be wearing white but as far as tablescapes and stuff is concerned, it might be a great choice. I’m planning a yellow grey and white kitchen so I think it goes together and you maybe could do some fun stuff with vintage milk glass or something…

Hmm…we are using lilac/lavender, charcoal grey and ivory….so maybe you can use varying shades of yellow?

I would go with a muted, natural green (think greenery- it always goes) or black and white- you could easily add white flowers and pop from b&w anemones, black fiddleheadferns, and/or black ranunculus.

I think a splash of red would looks nice. Kinda like Michelle Williams at the Oscars last year.
Just a few accents would be super cute.

Turquoise – would be a good contrast
purple – varying shades would give a different mood, but a rich purple would make that color palette seem more sophisticated
orange – springy and would totally pop!

Any blue tone would be pretty- I vote for turquoise

I think white would be very clean looking. White flowers are abundant, and that way if you go for the less expensive white option (linens, china, chairs, candles, etc.), it looks as if you coordinated.

I agree with green!
Take a look at this, it is a board for grey & green, but you can really imagine your yellow in their too, looks like it will compliement very well & will be very pretty!
