I hope that you had a good weekend. I am one stressed out bride lately, only 3 months until the big day! :)The other day I was looking at the decor that I already purchased and felt a panic. It seems like a lot of it does not go together 🙁 Originally our colors were going to be blush pink, navy, white and gold, but our would have been navy bridesmaid dresses were actually royal blue! I am struggling with this because I don’t particularly like royal blue and so I’m not sure I want to incorporate it into the wedding colors. My new idea for colors based on the decor I have was white, gold and tan, but that seems a little too plain. Based on the pictures of the decor I’ve purchased, does anyone have reccomendations of a new color pallette and any additional decor I should add? The lanterns and votives (with candles inside) would be our centerpieces, but the lanterns are small, so I was thinking of getting a vase for each table and putting 1-2 roses. My FI and MIL think that this would be too busy, so just stay with the lanterns and the candles. Also the big lanterns are for the bridal head table. A lot of our decor is white, and I was also going to do white linens for the tables, but that seems too white. Ugh, just having a hard time with this whole decor thing. It seems like I am missing a lot of things. Please let me know if you have any ideas. Thank you so much!

I do think you need a little bit of color just to make things pop. Are you able to use royal blue candles or royal blue silk flowers? You may be able to get away with making the table numbers royal blue. Maybe you can spray paint the table numbers with a sparkly royal blue color. You could spray paint some lanterns royal blue and leave some white. You could also do royal blue table runners and leave the other decor as is.

Since you don’t love Royal Blue, could you use that as your accent color?? Just decide another complimentary main color?
What do you think of the color palette illustrated herein? royal, moss or chartreuse and raspberry? I would def suggest softening that white with spray paint, like a cream.

I feel like you could still use navy blue. I don’t think people would notice, or care, if the shades of blue are a bit different. Most people will just see it as blue. Maybe the pink wouldn’t work as well against the royal blue.

You are totally fine!!! I love all your decorations. 🙂
Everything you have so far is neutral – all the white and gold with the craft paper/wood tone will create a beautiful, elegant look, and I absolutely wouldn’t worry about adding in additional pops of blue (or pink, or another color) in elsewhere – it’s not needed. You don’t love royal blue? Don’t add it in elsewhere. This all matches beautifully as-is. Don’t get caught up thinking you need more colors.
Royal blue dresses with all the white/gold you have will be lovely.
The only thing I can think of would be to let your florist know the updated bridesmaid dress color, and see if they have any reccomendations to change any of the flower colors in their bouquets, or confirm if they think you’re good to go there too 🙂
Your weddnig will be gorgeous!
