    I think your dress is a little out of place with what you’ve described as your decor.  BUT- dark/navy blue is very posh and I think you could make tweaks to have it work together.  Definitely incorporate silver into your color scheme- it’ll pick up the beading in your dress.  I would limit the use of fall leaves or straw (if you were planning that) and go with perhaps some more simple ivys as vines or wreaths, table swag, etc.  Ivy and blue/silver will look gorgeous!  If you were going to use wood, I would stick to more polished woods (ie:sanded and varnished, not raw cuts) or the deeper tones of walnut.

    Your dress is gorgeous and you should wear what you love on your wedding day!  I think everything will work out!

    Pretty much what@JBing: said.   The colors and the venue itself will be lovely with the dress – just keep your decor on the more formal side (for example, knock out the plaid and the leaves, but centerpieces similar to the ones on the first pic – bottom right – would pull off the more rustic-chic look.

    Most of your images make me think of an elegant, antique look rather than “rustic”. I think if you pushed it more that direction, the dress would work perfectly.

    I’m with @JBing! You can totally pull this off you just need to add more silvers and polished woods. Love the inspiration board though!

    I would second taking out the plaid!  There are a lot of pics in your inspiraton board which are still formal enough though.

    Your dress with dark navy will be beautiful.  You’ll just have to error on the side of “lush” when you execute from your inspiration boards.

    @JBing: What she said! and the PPs about the plaid.

    If you want to incorporate leaves, why not buy some artificial ones coated in silver glitter?

    @All In: I wouldn’t do cotton unless mixed with other flowers. For flowers you could do a mix of ivory, white and pale pink flowers? I think the color would define them as ‘antique’ over the flower itself.
