Getting married this Spring, still trying to decide on colors. This is a second marriage for both my fiance and myself. We’re in our mid 40’s and he’s a Navy LT. He’s wearing either dress blues or dress whites (still debating) and my 13 year old daughter will be standing up with us. I was planning on wearing a non white dress but if he wears his dress whites then ivory will not work well. It has now been suggested that if he wears his dress whites that I wear a long formal dress in Navy blue with Bridesmaid or Best Man in red. (She wouldn’t look good in yellow).

What about wearing a champagne color; either you or your daughter? Personally, I would not go with the red for a 13 year old. I would go with a pastel of some kind for her; maybe another color of blue. I suggest getting a color swatch that matches his uniform color and then go to a fabric store and hold the colors next to each other. And take some pictures of them together, so you can reveiw them when you get home. I have done this. I just asked the store manager, if it was okay. I have several swatches in my purse that I carry everywhere.

I personally don’t favor the r/w/b theme for a wedding; although I don’t feel a 13 year old should be in red for the wedding either.
If he wears his whites, I don’t see why you can’t wear white yourself. You could have a lovely dark blue sash w/blue shoes and your daughter could be in dark blue with a white sash.
Or you could wear a lovely white suit with a blue silk blouse. Or a dark blue suit with a white blouse.
Depending on his white, it may make your white look off color, so I agree,,,you need to hold up the colors side by side before you make a final decision.
