  • Wedding: April 2010

Congrats on your engagement!  I’m getting married in New England in April to a military man (Irish Air Corps) and he’ll be wearing a navy-colored uniform too.  The color I’ve chosen is berry by Alfred Angelo because I love jewel tones and I’m not really a ‘pastel’ person.  Pastels would work really well though.

My sister is my maid of honor and suggested yellow to me because it would look great with navy blue (the groom and some groomsmen) and black (tuxes on other groomsmen) but it didn’t match what I pictured in my own head (although it’s adorable!)  I’ve seen pictures online of mixed bridal parties (uniforms and tuxes) and lots of colors seem to work – even black on the bridesmaids.  Metallic colors would be cool too – gold especially.

Springtime is tough to predict but I plan on getting wraps for my bridesmaids just in case and hoping for the best weather-wise!

Good luck!!!

Could you use a less “patriotic” blue, like a lighter/baby shade?  Or, I love AnamCara’s suggestion to highlight metallic colors — or maybe jewel tones?

I think that berry is a great color with navy blue! But my version of berry is more like a metallic magenta. I’m not sure if this image helps, but it would be lovely!
