Stay with one shade/tint of chocolate, but vary the turquoise from pale to deep. You could dress your bridesmaids in turquoise from pale to deep with chocolate trim (my wedding was mink and pink - a dress they could use for other occasions, but this from a time when girls needed that sort of dress). I liked the ideas of redhatterb.
Most craft stores and fabric stores have a large variety of things in all price ranges. I would probably go with mainly white for the wedding itself, with maybe a very few colored accents.
For the reception centerpiece for the bridal table, buy some nylon net or tulle in the chocolate color and kind if swirl it along the length of the table inserting some turquoise colored silk flowers at intervals and in between the flowers use white pillar candles.
For safety I would use the battery operated candles, they are expensive but last forever, just by adding new batteries. On the other tables just use a few balloons.
