HELP need to choose colors

It may seem silly to some that we are planning so early but I am OCD and this is necessary for me plus we must know exactly where our budget is going.


 


My FI favorite color is Olive Green. I love blues and greens of any color. I am wanting to at least include Olive Gren as one of our colors because its a way of including him and he was thrilled when I told him it was going to be one of our colors. What shade of blue would you recommend? I really am afraid of going with a Navy or Royal because they are both dark and that paired with the dark shade that Olive Green is I'm afraid how dark and loomy it will look at our reception. I also want to use Ivory as a color as well. 


Our ceremony is outside so the greenery around us with do for the green color and we will use pomanders down the aisle in whatever our other shade is. 


Please help me choose one of the following pairings:


Olive Green, Ivory, Plum


Olive Green, Ivory, Lavendar (doesn't include a blue here)


Olive Green, Ivory, Lilac, Sky Blue


Olive Green, Ivory, Deep Teal, Turquoise


Olive Green, Ivory, Purple, Royal Blue

I love all of the combinations, but if I had to narrow it down, I would say the combination with lavender or the combination with the teal and turquoise.  The lavender combination is very soft, romantic, like a spring day.  The teal and turquoise give a pop of color to the olive green and ivory, and the jewel tone of the teal would be so beautiful and in some ways luxurious.  Hope this helps, and I can't wait to see what you put together.

I like the olive green, ivory and lilac! And I dont think its silly your planning early. I am not getting married till april 24 2015. I feel like the earlier we plan we will be able to make our wedding exactly how we want it.

when is your wedding? I like the combo of olive and plum , I also my the deep teel color you have,  but instead of turquoise with it I would do maybe pops of a burnt orange or gold to brighten it up.. just a thought =)

My wedding is April 11 2015. We had to move it back a year because my daughter is getting married in Sept and I can't pay for two weddings that close together.

Your opinions have helped alot. We are choosing between the one with plum or the teal and turquoise. I think the teal and turquoise will probably be the one. I feel so much better that I can finally get past this step.
