I think you should keep the coral-peach-orangish colors in the decor only like the centerpieces and the flowers. Have the girls wear navy dresses (navy is a flattering color and if you have the flowers in the coral-peach-orangish colors they will really pop against the dresses. You can have the men wear the taupe suits that will be nice. I’m doing a somewhat similar color scheme except my colors are coral peach and blush and its a spring wedding. Here are the centerpieces that helped my color scheme sound like it works together:

@countrygirllove:  Thanks! Yours will be pretty too! Also I have an additional idea I am doing with my mason jars. Here is a pic I found on exclusively weddings:

 Sorry this was the best pic I could find!

I got my escort cards from etsy in a coral peach and blush color. I am putting guests’ names on the front of the card and their table number on the back. You can use a hole puncher and cut a hole in the card and tie a ribbon around the jar.

@countrygirllove:  here’s another post about that technique.

You just add a bit of water to paint, pour it in the bottle, roll around till all is covered then drain out the excess.

If you were going to use them for vases you would want to do the same thing with a clear sealer after the paint is thoroughly dry, so the flower stems don’t make scratches in the paint.

I would have the men in either navy or taupe suits, but definitely not a taupe shirt. Nothing looks better than a white shirt. Then add a striped or paisley tie with your colors incorporated. The groom can wear a slightly different tie. Bright coral socks would make a great pic.

Brooks Brothers has these: 25% off if you buy 3 or more pair

Absolute socks

Men's Coral & Cream Stripe Socks

Quite a few bees have used http://www.studiosuits.com   if you have trouble finding a reasonably priced suit.

If you are buying suits from a regular store, get them when the summer stock is out as navy is rarely available in a large selection after the summer.

My wedding was navy and orange, but I kept the orange in the flowers only to keep it from looking too… collegiate?

 

this was my inspiration:

 

And this was my wedding:

The guys all wore navy ties with gray suits, and my girls also chose orange shoes. It’s hard to tell, but the centerpieces were wreaths of orange flowers around a lantern. We also used orange flowers for the ceremony arch. 

 

Hope this helps!
