colors for a lakefront wedding ceremony

I was wanting something that would stand out a bit from the scenery, but not distract from it either... So far I was thinking a deep purple??? What is everyone else thinking about for colors? oh and it's going to be spring/early summer wedding.

    hello! i am doing fall colors (apple red, burnt orange, chocolate brown with a splash of sunflower yellow) since my wedding is in september... :)

    really, it's your wedding day! if you want to be bold, go ahead! but if you want to perserve the beauty of the surroundings, i can understand that. deep purple is gorgeous! you could pair it with silver or gold. i'd go with gold, since it's a spring/early summer wedding.

    here's an inspiration board from that i really liked and might work for you!

    hope that helps!! :)

    I got married on the lake in August.  I did a light blue and chocolate brown.  My thinking was for the blue for the water and brown for the mountains.  I thought it looked great and the colors go well together.  Hope this helps!

    I'm getting married in Lake Tahoe next July (2011) and I am looking at a sky blue, chocolate brown and accents of cherry red.

    If you're looking for something bold for the summer deep purple could pair nicely with a spring green and a neutral like champagne or white.

    Good Luck!
