My hubby to be is in the Air Force and is going to wear his formal uniform which is mostly navy blue with a light blue shirt under the coat. But I love the citrus colors bight colors like; hot pink, bright purple, orange, coral. You get my drift how would I incorporate all that and not look tacky and if he’s the only one with those colors would it look bad. and if so what goes with little touches of navy blue because I don’t want my girls wearing navy blue.

I think if he’s in uniform, he’s exempt from having to match a color scheme!

I’ve been to a lot of military weddings. Basically he doesn’t have to match anything. But, since he will be in dress blues, it looks better if the groomsman are wearing ties instead of bowties.
As for bridesmaid dresses, I’d say the sky is the limit! Here are some pics from Air Force Academy weddings.

My best friend’s husband is in the Air Force, and they didn’t factor his uniform in at all for anything other than what the groomsmen were wearing. It looks great no matter what colors you choose, and hers were daisy yellow and white!

I don’t think you should add any colors to his uniform, I think it stands out enough on its own. Possible use colors on your groomsmen- I agree with Mr. Bee that military grooms are pretty much excempt from most color schemes 🙂 Congrats,

Just wanted to note that orange is a complimentary color of blue.

I think coral would look great with the Air Force uniform!

I agree with Mr. Bee: try not to focus on matching the uniform… just go with what you like. Incidently, what you like (hot pink, bright purple, orange, coral) would look fabulous next to the AF dress blues 😀
