- Wedding: July 2012
I’d love my bridesmaids wearing navy blue for our mid-July wedding. The ceremony will be at a cathedral in our city, the reception outside in tents (FI’s pick/insistence- worrisome w/ July heat…but I have time to convince him otherwise 🙂
I just keep getting stuck on the bouquet/accent color for navy as I love them all!I know I want my bouquet to be white with a few flowers in whatever color is the accent.
I loove bright yellow bouquets. So fresh, clean and it really pops. Totally summer, as well. Yellow is just such a happy color and I love how it looks. For the reception I love picturing white linens with yellow flower centerpieces. Yumm. I know some think its nautical- and we aren’t really nautical/preppy. We have a lakehouse, go out on his dad’s boat and got engaged on the lake but that’s pretty much it.
I also love the idea of pink. Maybe pale pink & peach with some bright pink mixed in. Carrie Underwood’s wedding scans only reinforced my love for it. So sweet, romantic without being too frilly, girly or “baby shower.” I also feel this color scheme matches the dress (Monique L Margarite). I also love thinking about pale pink or peach tablecloths with white and green hydrangeas as centerpieces.
Then my FMIL is trying to convince me on PURPLE to go with navy. I don’t need another color thrown into the mix to decide on. 🙁
UGHH! My FI and bridesmaids are no help! I love them both so equally. What do you think goes best with navy?? Navy/yellow? Navy/pink? Navy/purple?
