Rugla:  I love the navy and blush colour combo – it always looks amazing!

I really don’t think it will take much to tie you two together and I agree that you definitely don’t want to go overboard with matching. I would lean towards putting a blush element or two as part of his outfit, but don’t think you need to incorporate navy into yours. If you do though, I would go for something slightly more subtle than the shrug (such as a navy broach on a belt, or dark blue earrings). You could always do a white or cream coloured shrug that would match his shirt, which would tie your outfits together in a more subtle way.

I love this inspiration pic and think a blush tie and buttonhole would be perfect. Have fun!!!

Rugla:  I totally hear you. I’m dead pale too, but luckily found the right tone of ivory to be really flattering for my dress, at least! Maybe a navy shrug would work then. I’m sure it will look great with your dress, it just might look a little full on next to your lovely groom in his navy suit.

I had an ivory dress and went with a blush coloured sequinned drapey cardy as a cover up for keeping warm. It actually sounds kind of awful, and the stock photo below doesn’t do it great justice, but it was gorgeous in person. If you don’t want to go with navy, maybe you could look for a silverish or metallic type of cardy or shrug? I think that could work beautifully with a blush dress. 

Also, if you did want to do a navy accent in the form of earrings, I think something like this could be stunning (although they’re not exactly cheap!):
