    so we're thinking blues and greens for our wedding colors. basically we want our colors to be representative of our surroundings. hence, blue (water) and green (tropical forest)

    what would be a good accent color? does fuschia work?


    or do you think our colors should accent the natural surroundings? ie have our wedding colors all be accents to the blue, green, tan suroundings? Like maybe red, orange, and something else?

    i swear, picking wedding colors is tougher work that i thought!

    I think fuschia or orange would go well, so many tropical flowers are those colors...good idea to use the surroundings.

      Im not a huge fan of fuschia with green, maybe a lighter pink or an orange.

        What about yellow, or a paler green.

          I like the idea of adding orange in for that punch of contrast color.

            I vote for the fuschia, it looks great with those colors!

              I also say to throw some orange in. Our colors were orange, chocolate, and cream and there are some trees at LC with orangish/brownish leaves...the orange in our color scheme complimented the foliage quite nicely.

                I would go with the color of the flowers you are going with for your bouquet. I'm actually doing the same color scheme, blues and greens with khaki(sand) and then pink and white accent colors in (hopefully) a rose or peony bouquet. You could go with any flower and I think it would work beautifully because your going with nature and not competing with it.

                  I like the orange option. I am not a fan of pinks.
