So far I have two colors in my wedding. My dress that is soft white, I guess it’s described as diamond white in the wedding world, and my sisters Maid/Matron of Honor dress that is a sapphire blue- I’ve chosen her to be the only one standing with me, he has a best man and we have a ring boy … still deciding if we will use a flower girl.
Ok, so the dress is this beautiful deep sapphire blue. I took a pic of the fabric swatch, it’s the bottom blue one.
Should that blue color be used as a wedding color? I’m so confused. If I use that … what other color would I use to go with it?
Is pink and blue too overdone? Help me!!!!

Pink AND blue is kinda like…baby colors to me. You have to be careful which shade you go with. Since blue is your sisters’ dress, theoretically it probably should be at least an accent color. I’m not a fan of the pink with it unless it’s a nice, rich magenta or hot pink. That blue is really gorgeous…just stay away from baby pinks.
What about coral? Coral would be really fashionable with such a nice rich blue! or silver? or you could do all shades of blue, so it just blends and has a very zen ocean feel to it. The rose color (221) is really nice also.

Yes, the rose color is nice … like Rose Champagne … your pink champagne color! Is it too … babyish though? I think that all shades of blue sound nice and coral could be really hot. I didn’t even think of that! Gonna go look it up now! Thank you.

I think that lime green would look nice, too. I originally started planning our wedding with a very green feel, both literally and environmentally, but I found that dark shades of blue and deep shades of yellow kept sneaking in. That sapphire blue is such a beautiful color, so I’m sure that whatever you decide will look perfect!

Well, my champagne pink is definitely not "baby pink" however…it seems that a LOT of my accents colors have transitioned into rosy shades of pink b/c chamnpagne pink/blush is not a readily available shade. It’s really hard avoiding the "baby pink" color…like ribbons for example. They do NOT sell champagne pink ribbons in the store. Only online for bridal shops and they’re way pricey.
So, FYI, not an easy color to necessarily work with. My invites all ended up being champagne… in fact, champagne and "oatmeal" (ribbon color) is heavily dominating the wedding. I’ll put up pics after mine next weekend and you can see for yourself how i tied the pinks together without looking too reminiscent of a bad evening of cosmopolitans.

EJS, I can’t wait to see photos of your wedding!
For the record, I’m doing navy blue and pink. The navy blue is the primary color, so to speak, and we’re working it throughout the invitations, decor, etc., whereas the soft rosy pink is reserved for just the flowers. Our venue has a lot of gold, too, so that’s sort of an informal wedding color that works well with the blue and the pink.
There are a lot of colors that would look great with your sapphire blue – just go with what you love and what looks great!

I like the above suggestion of silver and the saphire blue. . very chic and classy. Also you could do say blue and white and then work in varying shadesof each color. As in: Ivory, blush, diamonite, stark white and Robins egg blue, royal blue, cornflower blue etc.

To bring the sapphire blue of the dress into other aspects of your wedding, you could do napkins/tableclothes/favors in that color, and then bring another color in, such as yellow, green or red in flowers and other details. Any shade of those colors would look great next to that dark blue.
