Today FI and I went to pick out his rental tux. I had been thinking an ivory or antique gold colored vest/tie would be nice and in keeping with the warm color palette I was hoping to have. However, the platinum/light grey vest/tie looked the best on him.
My Best Woman is wearing a cobalt blue dress, and the Best Man will have a pretty much matching blue vest.
How on earth do I get a warm color palette when I now have platinum and cobalt? I’ve been all through the perfect palette web site and can’t figure it out. My dress is a very light ivory, with lots of sparkle.
Any ideas? Thanks for reading this. I’m feeling a bit discouraged just now.

@Astra: Is the tux standard black? if so, it and the pewter vest are both neutrals so you can just ignore them. The groom is not an accessory to the color scheme. He can wear a blue boutonniere.
Believe it or not, cobalt blue is considered to be a warm blue as opposed to Prussian blue, Cerulean or Maganese blue, whcih are all considered cool blues.
You could use gold or copper with your ivory and cobalt blue
blue and orange
blue and yellow

@julies1949: Thank you so much for your reply and the images. I never thought of copper and I love the idea!! Also I didn’t know cobalt was warm. That’s very good news!
Yes, his tuxedo is standard black. Thanks again for your very helpful reply. I needed a lift! 🙂

@Astra: Copper would look great with cobalt blue. Orange and blue are opposite each other on the color wheel and copper has that orange undertone.

@julies1949: That votive holder is stunning!! Copper would be perfect with cobalt – thank you so very much!! I just love the menu idea – will probably do something like that. 🙂 You made my day!!
