Wedding Color HELP! :)

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:

You can check some of the online stock sites, such as Pixabay. Often, there are patterns and they have liberal terms! You should be able to incorporate a pattern you find there and sell it or do whatever you like!

Hi Edith - thanks for posting this. I have been getting the same pop-up updates about Flash. I did the exact same thing as you. I close out the tab! I wonder what other scams might come our way. I just want to be here to color. *sigh*
Anyway, I truly appreciate you "just saying", Edith.
Thanks!
Trix :)

Over the past week I've been troubled by a page direct to some site telling me Apple wants me to update my Flash Player. Don't you dare do it. How do I know this is a scam? First, there's a questionable web address, and how would Apple know what Flash Player I have, and if they did, wouldn't they tell me in an offical update? Second, I know my Flash Player is current, because I went to the OFFICIAL Adobe site, and installed the latest current one just in case, and I still get these redirects. I think these adlinks that infest the CL pages now can tell through cookies that I enabled Flash (which is dormant by default in Apple software because it's a known malware risk) long enough to design a new template for the site. Third, since I know Flash software is vulnerable to hacking, any unasked-for communication about it through my browser is suspect.

I just wanted you to know these are happening, and to never never click on one of these pages. If you get one, close the tab immediately. If you ever question your Flash installation, download new software ONLY through the official Adobe site, adobe.com.

Just saying.
