I think those colors would fit your venue wonderfully! Any colors would work though! So pick whatever you love the most!

Isabelle663:  I think any color will look great in your venue!  I think that bouquet looks great and totally appropriate for summer.  Maybe you can even throw in some bits of yellow to brighten it up even more:

I think having 3 very saturated colors is going to result in visual conflict. Moreover, I hate to disagree vip0802, but adding yellow is definitely going to clash with the warm, subtle hues of the venue. Instead, look to have only 1 (2 maximum) strong (meaning bright or deep or extremely saturated) hue and tone the other colors down. For example, if you want to do plum, don’t use white flowers; instead use ivory or off-white flowers so they don’t compete and use a slightly more blue toned plum so it looks like it’s from the same family as the navy. Alternatively, keep the white flowers, but choose a more muted purple. It seems like you are locked in with blue, so try leaves and stems that are a bit more on the blue side.

I am a fan of multi-colored bouquets that use several hues of the same color family. Since you like plum and you want to tie it to navy, here is an example:


If you want to consider entirely other options, peach and light blue compliment navy and would go well with the taupe walls of the venue. (I know you said you’re not a fan of pink or blue flowers, but they’re closer to orange really and I think you are going to be stuck with a little bit of blue in your bouquets because the dresses are blue) Here are some examples:


I agree with you that you don’t want to go too dark, but here’s an option that might work if you add some lighter flowers (ivory or muted tones; white would be too much contrast):
