The Q: I'm planning a wedding at the NYC Fire Musuem and originally before we decided to have our reception at this venue, our colors were and teal and brown. Now that its at the museum which has red windows, I'm thinking we need to add red to our colors to color coordinate? What do you think of teal, brown and red?
The A: I love this combination. Though I should say that one girl's teal is another girl's acqua, so it does depend on HOW green your teal is. If it's MORE green than blue, you may want to tread lightly with the red accents. MAYBE a little bit of red mixed into your centerpiece flowers or a border on your table number signs. If your Teal is more of an Acqua, go willy nilly!!! It's vibrant, chic and I think adorable.
Tip of the Day: If you aren't sure, take a swatch of your BM dresses or whatever it is to a hardware store and start playing with paint chips. That will give you as sense of what works and what won't. Here are some great examples from Wedding Bee and Tastefully Entertaining.
