I’ve always liked the colors light pink and chocolate brown together, but now I have a few dilemmas and could really use the hive’s opinion.
Dilemmas (read them all and you’ll hopefully see the dilemma!):
1. My bridesmaids have practically refused to wear pink as bridesmaid’s dresses, so I’m considering having them wear brown. I figure with pink flowers and maybe a pink sash it’ll pull the colors together nicely.
2. My fiance will be wearing his navy-colored Air Force Mess Dress, and two of his three groomsmen are also in the Air Force. Should they wear their uniform (navy in color), and then the other guy can just wear a suit? Or should the three of them just wear a regular suit and let my Fiance be the only one in uniform?
3. I’m mostly over thinking this because of the pictures. Will the photos just look weird with pink, brown, and navy, and with three different and distinct looks on the boys?
I’ve heard that a man or men in uniform during a wedding kind of trumps any colors, but this is just driving me crazy.
(As a side note, the other colors I’ve been considering are light pink and black)

I don’t know how chocolate brown and navy would photograph next to each other. Pink and Navy are a hot combo, but if your girls refuse to wear it I definitely see your dilemma. Could you possibly do three colors as accents (and therefore removing the brown)? Maybe Navy, Pink, and Sage? I’m just not sure how else you’re incorporating your colors.. and how many colors you can use. It is not unheard of to do more than two (or even more than 3) accent colors, so my suggestion would be to find another color that coordinates well with both Navy and Pink. Good Luck!

I agree with MissEdamame. I’m not so sure about the chocolate and navy. I love the idea of navy and pink though. As for the guys, IMO, I think that just your Fiance should wear his uniform. I think it may look odd if there’s only one guy not in uniform. Not to say any of the above can’t work. I’m just a visual person and I have to see it before I’m sold. Have you tried doing a google image search to see if you can find any of the combos?

@tessabella: I’m also a visual person, which is why I’m having such a hard time with this; I’ve googled my laptop keys out trying to find the above combos so I can try picturing it. I’m really just not a huge fan of blue/navy (or even sage, like missedemame suggested), so I’m having a hard time with this.
