Color Scheme

Yes I know its probably a little late in the planning process to be talking about my color scheme, I mean I am getting married in 190 days ( the knot tracker is helpful :) ). But I have been having second thoughts about my color scheme...I love burgundy, and I think its a great fall color, however my problem has been what to pair with it. Green ( even the light colors) are too christmasy, I'm not a fan of orange ( just a personal opinion) and yellow is hit and miss. I have been searching around on differnt inspiration boards, one of my favorites Style me Pretty has a lot of great ideas--One in particular caught my attention :

^ The above Inspiration board was found on Style me Pretty but is from the Blog Perfect Bound I love the silvery gray and burgundy red together, mixed with pearl--I think its classy ( which is what I'm aiming for) but also bold. However, I do worry that the Gray could be too "drab" but I feel if i make the bridesmaid dresses more silvery and not as grey that might help! I was also thinking of still making the MOH dresses burgundy/red as to add a "pop" What do you think?

Here is another board that I found on the Perfect Bound website-with the same color scheme:

I love them both,and I don't think it would a problem to keep the grays flat versus silvery. The deep red and burgundy breathes so much life into it. The last word I'd use to describe these boards is drab! They are beautiful and the addition of pearl is so, so elegant.

Don't give it a second thought, the colors are beautifuland modern together . Gray is the it color this year so you really can't go wrong. If you didn't see it, the Elizabeth Anne Designs blog had a post today on great grey dresses http://www.elizabethannedesigns.com/blog/2008/03/13/gorgeous-gray-gowns/

Snippet & Ink just posted an inspiration board in cranberry and pistachio green (which actually looks a little more teal to me) and would be perfect for a fall wedding. It has the green in there, but doesn't look at all Christmasy.
