Help choose color for bar top

First time here! I love woodworking and building things, so I am building the bar for my wedding and I’ve got the base built. It’s going to have a counter top at 36” and the bar top at 42”. My original plan was to do a poured epoxy over mdf in a “copper petina” look but I think it’s going to clash with the colors of the base. What do you all think? Thanks in advance. N

Looking at your image it seems you already have a lot of the colours for a copper patina, I think adding blues/greens to some copper epoxy will match with the blues and greens already in the base.

If you think it will clash just don't go too overboard with it and have some smaller streaks/patches of colour in the epoxy.

What will you do with the bar after the wedding, if you are planning to keep it then it has to co-ordinate with the rest of the location, patio, rec room, etc.
