I’ve always swooned over peach and champagne wedding colors…so romantic and beautiful. FI would never tell me I couldn’t do it, but suffice it to say, he doesn’t love it (it is a bit feminine). I want him to really love it too. Plus I went out with a bridesmaid to try and find peach dresses the other day. There were NONE (well maybe a few but definitely nothing close to what I’m looking for). We went all over the place! And all the peach beauties I find online are too expensive (I’m trying to keep the dresses under $100).
So because I want FI to really love the colors and the fact that I can’t find the color I want anyway, I’m back at square one.
We are getting married at a yacht club…so I’m toying with the idea of going nautical. Navy, White, with blush and peach accents (this will probably only be shown in the flowers). I’m just worried that I’m going to commit to this color scheme and not love it. So here I am at the bee looking for some advice. What I like about it: easy to find things in these colors, matches our venue, gives me a clear direction to go in in terms of planning. What I’m not too sure about: plain/stark looking, perhaps too masculine. Do you like it/hate it? I don’t know exactly what I’m looking for but give me your thoughts. Also since it’s on a lake (and not an ocean), do you think we could still use starfish accents? Will people think that’s weird? I love them!

i think you could easily do navy, peach & champagne! (basically the colors you’re talking about in your second scheme – do it! fluffy blush flowers against navy & white stripes would be a great mix. i’d personally nix the starfish, but you could maybe do shells?

True! I like shells also.

I love the nautical look! I did sort of a vintage nautical twist because I didn’t want it to be overkill. My colors were yellow, navy, white which worked out great. I think the key is to pick the places where you use nautical elements and don’t stick too much to a theme but more to coordinating colors. The weddings I always love the most are ones where everything doesn’t match exactly.
For example the nautical navy & white is adorable for the stationary and maybe a couple of decorations. You also want to have a lot of flowers or candles to make it feel more romantic. I used mason jars will sand and candles to decorate our cocktail area which is beachy, rustic & affordable. You could add the starfish to the mason jars with sand or use them as your escort cards 🙂
Have you decided on centerpieces? I think lanterns, mercury glass, or galvanized metal pots would be super cute at a yacht club venue.

I LOVE the nautical theme! I would totally do it, if I lived anywhere near a body of water. It’s gorgeous and classy and would probably make your FH very happy. I think your inspiration boards are great and a good mix of feminine and masculine.

The more I think about it and see pictures the more excited I am about it.
@mjameson83: For centerpieces I’m thinking we will do either a metal container or mason jars with some peach/pink flowers and then as table numbers have sailboats. I’m thinking something like this (but a but more rustic than fancy)…we’ll probably make the sailboats ourselves.

I love the whole nautical theme. When I lived at home, I had a nautical themed room (even though the closest ocean is 1500 miles away…) You could easily incorate the blush into your color scheme. A lot of sea shells have a blush color to them and I think blush peonys would look absolutly stunning.

I really like it. I think the peach and navy looks great and the slightly nautical theme makes sense. I even like the starfish more than the shells.
