I’m in the same situation… our venue is very beautiful on its own so we decided to not really have a color scheme.  All the flowers will be very neutral to let the decor around us shine through.  I understand what you mean though – wedding planners, florists, etc. all ask about color schemes.  The best way I’ve explained things thus far is to just say that we want everything classy and neutral with a lot of whites and creams and ivory colored flowers.  My Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses are red and we are doing some red rose petals here and there as an accept but beyond that very simple.

I think it sounds lovely – and creams are NOT boring.  Textured whites and off whites and light tans would complelement the navy blue subtly, and let the venue shine.  Maybe you can just show pictures of the venue to the florists?  Or can you just design things yourself?

I’m all over the place too, suits are grey, girls are a dark coral, bouquets are white, cream and light green, thinking pink and orange rose pedals for the ceremony as we are getting married down south but not crazy about the “tropical” theme.  Honestly my dress, hair and the bouquet all scream garden rather than tropical lol.

Oh well!

i think just whites and creams is beautiful, not having a color scheme seems a lot simpler

I am not having a color scheme either! I find it too restrictive. My wedding is themed around a song called “The Crane Wife” which is Japanese-based. Originally, I had a color scheme until I realized it made it REALLY difficult to find chiyogami paper I really liked so I dumped the color scheme. My bridesmaids will wear navy blue dresses, but our bouquets will be particular chiyogami patterns. My centerpieces will also be different chiyogami patterned flowers. Try not to listen to the people who say you need an absolute color scheme. 🙂 Good luck with planning.
