c.steen1986:  I didn’t want my guys to be too matchy matchy with the girls. I found a patterened (paisley) tie that incorporated my girl’s dress color (coral) but wasn’t solid. Their vest was the same color as the suit. I felt like it was just enough color, but not to the extreme of a coral vest and tie. 


As for the centerpieces, I woudl incorporate many different colors – white, light blue, dark blue and your royal blue colors. Or, just do all white!

c.steen1986:  Having the BM’s in blue dresses and the groomsmen wearing a blue tie is not too much blue. Like the pp, I would find a patterned tie, either striped or paisley so it’s a little more interesting.

It can be hard to come up with non- floral ideas for a lunch reception. Candles are pretty much a waste of space.

You could get these cardboard suitcases ( linked to your DW) – place one on each table , top with a chachka like a small bird, a mossball, grapevine ball etc and add a bud vase with just one flower.


sort of like this

or you could collect blue bottles, cluster 3 of them and again have just one flower per bottle
