Hey guys! I am looking for some inputs on a potential color scheme which I’m not sure would work. I really love the navy/pale pink (blush) combo, something along those lines:
However, we have already pretty much decided that, in order to save costs, my Fiance and his groomsmen would wear black suits (because they all own one already, we will save the $$$ for men’s attire rental). So my question is, would black suits work with navy Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses like those below? If yes, do you have any tips on how to make it work better (tie color, etc.)?
Also, one of our friends who has a rental business may be able to lend us gold chiavari chairs for the reception (he doesn’t have them in any other colors). Would it look good to incorporate small gold elements in our decor along with the navy/blush colors? Should we try to look more into silver than gold?
Any help is greatly appreciated, I’m SO not good at coordinating those things! Thanks bees!

I was in a wedding where our dresses were navy/midnight and the guys wore black suits with gold ties. I think it looked great! Also I found this old thread that shows a good picture example in the end http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/midnight-blue-dresses-with-black-suits. You could do pink ties for the guys or do gold ties and incorporate the pink through the boutineer- I think either way it’s look great.

If you look at this wedding it has elements of what you’re after and I think it looks pretty
She even has a goldy coloured sash on her dress! I know you’d probably have more pink elements, but it still shows the navy bm dresses with black suits.
Hope that helps 🙂 We are doing navy and peachy colours, so very similar to you!

Thanks for the ideas girls! 🙂 The pictures you showed me are inspiring, looks like we can do this after all! If anybody else has examples of how these colors have been used together, keep ’em coming please!

By The Way I can PM you the name of the photographer my friend used who is on fb and has pics of us in navy with the groomsmen in black and gold- just don’t want to put her stuff out on the web where she might not want it!

I think it will look great! I may be biased though since these are our colors!
