Hi, I have always known that I want to include my favorite color, green in my wedding colors. Originally I was thinking pewter, white, and green (more of a leafy natural green). But then I found out our venue only has gold chairs for the dining area. Would it look good to have a mix of grays, gold-yellow, white, and green? I picture lots of ambient candle light, white and green flowers, perhaps even some blush or gray flowers. Do you think that it will be enough color? I get this feeling like I need more color, maybe purple (we're getting married at a winery), but I don't want to take away from the green. I would say my wedding style is romantic, classy, and all about beautiful comfy sophistication. Does that even make sense? Any advice would be much appreciated!! :)

I created a palette that should help you visualize it a little more.

Here is a description that should help. I love the palette and think that the natural and organic tones of green would fit perfectly with the accents of gold.

The greens would be accounted for in the florals with florals such as succulents. White peonies, and some billyballs create a wonderful floral palette. Adding gold accents in the chairs, vases or chargers along with candlelight will create a romantic atmosphere.

From there details such as the cake, stationary, bridesmaids, groomsman, etc. could have green bouquets, gray dresses, and maybe a touch of blush pink to complete it.

I'm no wedding expert at all, but I imagined something along these lines. I thought since you really liked green, which is also one of my favorite colors, I would incorporate two shades, kind of a light chartreuse, and almost a robin eggs blue. I wasn't sure what color gold the seats were, so I went for a lighter one, but either way I recommend leaving gold as an accent color rather than a main one. I picked white purely for a traditional wedding atmosphere, and I tried to mix your liking towards blush and pewter gray with a warm airy gray to warm up the entire palette that you could match the pink blooms to.

Love white and blue.

It might be nice and a little different to use a plum, or wine red since you'll be at a winery. Both colors look nice with greens, and are I think they make a sophisticated combination. Something like the following palette, maybe?

It would help to have examples of the green you are thinking of and the gold that will be there. I would avoid adding grey to the mix. Here is a palette to consider:

I am all for being patient while much needed changes are made to the site, but the complete absence of communication is very disturbing.
I feel it is a lack of respect towards the community to just leave us worrying and guessing every. bloody. time.

We have sat out weeks of CL not working because of DoS-Attacks, we've experienced several (for us: surprise) shut-downs as updates were implemented, we have grappled with the buggy fallout of many of these updates - and never a comment, a warning, a heads-up, an anything from anybody in charge.

Are we not worth being informed?

And now I sit and wait to see if this comment will actually be posted. I have not been able to comment anywhere, not even my own profile, for days.

Came back after being gone for 2 years to this disappointment, Also, once again, experienced issues with Seamless Light errors. Captchas are a pain in the butt (especially when they make you click though 3 pages of pics); however, I understand the need for them.

Have you tried another browser, like Google Chrome? I just tried Firefox and BPM (basic palette maker) worked fine and BPM also worked fine with Chrome. How about Photocopa? Have you tried making palettes that way? I'm just trying to help - I know it can be frustrating.

I understand you are. We're all frustrated. :)
I seemed able to make a basic palette in IE, but some of the pages on the site (like the homepage and login) take so long to load that they occasionally just lock up and stay blank. Other ones load quickly. I don't have Chrome on this computer, - I'd have to try it later on my laptop when I can access it.

TBH, I don't think I ever used Photocopa for my palettes. It never quite did what I wanted, and 90% of my palettes aren't based off photos.

I am very pleased to see that the spam problem is being addressed and agree with Edith re being patient while these changes are taking place and also concur that some form of communication by those behind the scenes would be nice and greatly appreciated.

I have to admit that the lack of badges has actually been pretty nice. At times, I'm not a fan of the flood of badges on the sidebar. It's nice to not have some creations shoved in my face over and over again.
And I second Edith. I'd love to hear some news. :)
