Color Help for Spring Wedding

Hi, I'm new to this site, but I was hoping to get some ideas...  We are getting married in May (2009), and I originally wanted to use a deep berry as our primary color (BM dresses, flowers, etc.).  However, the venue that we have now chosen has dark red chairs.  We thought about renting chairs or chair covers but really would rather not spend the money on that.  So...  Does anyone have ideas for a color scheme that would coordinate with the dark red but still look spring-ish?  We are having an evening wedding, and the ceremony and reception will both be in the same place.  Any ideas would be much appreciated! Thanks!!

Here's some inspiration from a recent event hosted by my florist and wedding coordinator - lots of fresh, deep red combos:

As an interior designer im always looking for fun new color combinations, a fun new one is:  the deep red and turquiouse or aqua (SEE ABOVE) -  its very unique, FRESH, FLIRTY and great for spring and you won't see it overdone (just yet) perfect for an 09 wedding!! see link: http://www.marthastewart.com/article/perfect-palettes-aqua-and-red?lnc=06b7281a117ee010VgnVCM1000003d370a0aRCRD&rsc=photogallery_wedding-themes_weddings_wedding-themes


love the above as well, with the red, lime and lemon!


and also the red and pinks!!! http://www.marthastewart.com/article/perfect-palettes-pink-and-poppy?lnc=06b7281a117ee010VgnVCM1000003d370a0aRCRD&rsc=photogallery_wedding-themes_weddings_wedding-themes

Hi! Welcome to PW. You can do different shade of red. From pink red to dark red. I used dark red and ivory with light gold accent its not very springy PIB
Happy planning

Thanks for all the great ideas!  I would like to somehow do shades of red/pinks, I think...  And these pics gave me a good start.

i love dark red with turqouise/pool blue - also with a super super light yellow - butter yellow and dark red are a fantastic combo imo...

For our Spring wedding we are doing starburst colors. I always wanted a beautiful red bouquet, and we rstarted out just doing red, black and white.  WE decided to add shades of yellow, pink and orange to fit better with our spring wedding date.  Most of the flowers will be the two toned rose like the circus rose (red and yellow) and latin ladies? ( orange and pink)
