colors with Brown

I've decided to move my wedding to Spring from Fall but I still really like brown and want to keep it.  My fiance is going to wear a camo tie and vest with his tux.  My question is I need a color to go with brown.  What would look good in Spring w/ brown?

Re: colors with Brown

  • What about a green or blue (pretty typical I know), or turquoise/teal.  I don't know how well pink would factor with camo, but you could give it a try.

    I think I like this brown & green inspiration board.  Google brown weddings, you'll get lots of hits.

  • I agree - green would be very pretty. Especially teal or sage. I originally considered making my colors chocolate and teal.

    You could also do pink, or peach. Or a nice blue.

    If you want it to feel more spring-like, you can still use any color - the question is what shades to use. Brown is sort of a neutral, so you're pretty much set there.

  • I love brown and light, icy blue.
  • I think a pale yellow would look very pretty, and could be dressed up and elegant. Depending on your style.

    Yellow and brown would be good for spring

  • I vote for teal.  You can do really pretty soft pink flowers with that.

    I refuse to think about the camo part of it.

  • Do a pale canary yellow. It's a beautiful color with brown! Or a sage green! :) These colors are awesome. I'm biased (they are mine.)

  • Brown is one of my wedding colors.  I am getting married on the beach in Key West.  I choose sky blue with a punch of key lime to go with the brown.  The colors go really nice together.
