We are getting married in May. I am a bit of a tomboy at heart, so bright, girly colors aren’t really my style. I had my heart set on navy blue dresses for my girls, and had been thinking to do yellow shoes and yellow flowers to brighten things up a bit. But it turns out yellow shoes are hard to find in all my bridesmaid’s sizes. Two of them have small feet, and one of them has large, wide feet. So then I started thinking about nude shoes, but that doesn’t do anything to add color.
I have this concern that won’t go away that navy blue is not enough of a spring wedding color on its own. Am I wrong?

I think it’s fine. I had a June wedding and bridesmaids in navy blue with colorful bouquets and I think they looked great!

@Lrroma181986: Navy blue is a perfect “base” color for a spring wedding. No matter what other color you choose for flowers etc, nude shoes would look great and be loved by your BM’s. They will be able to get so much wear out of them following the wedding. They will love you even more if you give them a paint sample of the shade of nude you want and let them choose their own shoes. They can pick somehting in their budget and a shoe that feels good on.
You can vary the look of your wedding greatly with the flower colors.
You can choose something soft
bright and bold

@Lrroma181986: I think Navy is perfect. I am having a SUMMER wedding and still chose navy as one of my colors. I wouldn’t worry about it too much.

It turned out lovely. If she doesnt mind, I’ll post some pictures of her wedding!

@Lrroma181986: I think Navy blue can be a spring color. As long as you keep the flower colors light, it should be fine.

Navy is gorgeous! My dream would be navy with lime green flowers/accents. I think that would be very springy!!

@Lrroma181986: We wore navy dresses for a July wedding in Cape Cod with nude shoes and it looked gorgeous. I think you can add color with your flowers — it will look beautiful and your girls will love it (we did!).
