Too much color?

We are planning a July 2019 lakeside wedding in Michigan. Our colors are mint/sage green, powder blue, and pale yellow. I’m going for a summery, romantic vibe that isn’t what you’d typically expect for a summer wedding. Our venue is pretty rustic and I’m worried it may be too much color.

The awatches pictures are the colors I chose for the bridesmaids (2 in each color), my dress is ivory lace, and the groom and groomsmen will be in navy. We plan to use lemons in the centerpieces for pops of color (not these exact centerpieces).

Thoughts?

    I think this will look amazing for a wedding and especially against the nature background.

    Hi Caitlin! I don't think this is too much color at all! They're all super pretty, summery, complimentary colors and will look great with your vintage, lakeside wedding! Smiley heart

    I LOVE the idea of lemons in the centerpieces, too!

    Perfect! Not too much color at all. I oftentimes think these rustic theme weddings - while beautiful - lack color. I say go for it!

    It looks beautiful! You’re making me consider adding light blue to my yellow and green color scheme!

    Hi Caitlin! I absolutely love the colors that you have picked out! I think that they are perfect for your venue and a July wedding! I also am obsessed with hydrangeas and think they would work so well with your wedding! I am so excited to see how this looks all together! What are you currently working on? What are you most excited to cross off of your wedding to-do list?

    Thanks, Sam! I also love hydrangeas and they will be everywhere at our wedding lol. I’m currently making the final flower decisions and locking down a DJ. I’m most excited to cross final guest list and save the dates off the list

    That's amazing! You seem like you are really on top of your planning, which is great! My favorite place to put hydrangeas is actually on a wedding cake! Here are a few pictures for inspiration:

    I love this! I'm getting married in July too, but we're doing navy & peach for our main colors. I wish I would've thought of colors like you did. I love the lemon centerpiece, too! So unique, and still won't cost you much $$.

    I absolutely love this and this was originally my color palette for our rustic outdoor July 2019 wedding as well! Then there was talk of the barn being painted red so we changed it up!

    But anyways..I LOVE THIS!
