Damiansmum10:  Navy blue and light blue are both shades of blue, so there is no need to change your colors.

Damiansmum10:  How are you planning on using the navy and coral?

Damiansmum10:  I’m a little confused…it that your dress in the top pic with the coral lace underlay or the baby blue dress?

BTW – I LOVE navy and coral/peach!

Damiansmum10:  Given that blue flowers are harder to come by, I would have the bridesmaids in light or navy blue dressses and use coral for the flowers.

You could have the MOH in navy and the BM’s in light blue. If the groom wears a navy vest, and the

groomsmen wear the chambray shirts you will balance the colors on both sides of the bride in pics.

Damiansmum10:  I guarantee you will stand out. You will be the only one in a wedding gown and wearing a veil.

I’m not a fan of all different colors.

 

You could use various shades of blue.

Damiansmum10:  $90 isn’t high for a BM dress but it takes a special woman to carry off a dress like that.

Given the venue and the casual dress  of the groom and groomsmen, I think you could also chosse a casual, and affordable dress for the bridesmaids.

A chambray dress like this would work well with the groomsmen’s shirts. It’s only $35.

Damiansmum10:  You could buy dried baby’s breath which is inexpensive and spray paint it coral. Or buy the ivory baby’s breath (not white) and use coral ribbon to wrap the stems. This brings in both your other colors at little cost.
