Do you have any pictures of the venue? It might be easier for people to chip in if they could see the venue.

Also, since your wedding is in October, have you considered fall colours? Apple reds, deep purples, rich greens, maybe a hint of orange? At least it would be consistent with nature!

In terms of bridesmaid dresses, I would suggest picking colours based on the shape and skin tone of the ladies. I was set on royal blue because of my wedding theme, but if you’re not set on a colour, confer with them! I would appreciate that as a bridesmaid. The colour for the dress might help determine the colour of the boots, as well.

So the walls have blue and yellow on them, and you want to include those without doing the navy blue/yellow/grey thing?


I love just blue and yellow!

I agree… the yellow, blue and orange sunflower theme would be lovely.


Is there anyway you can add draping to hide the walls?

Honestly I don’t think anyone will think of “navy” just because you use blue, yellow, and gray.  Almost every color combination could be some school or teams colors.  It’s only obvious if you pull into that and use a mascot in your decoration!  I would never see blue dresses, yellow flowers, and some grays and think “Ah! That’s the navy!”

But as others have said, if you wish to change it I think blue and orange or blue and bright green look lovely together.  Or you could go with golds and naturals and blue to play up the woodwork.  But I actually love navy blue as a nice dark color for Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses.
