Another girl on this board did navy and pale yellow.  I suggested hot pink/magenta, white and navy.  Champagne, gold & navy?

Hey miss! My first advice to you is to look in your closet. What colors do you love wearing? Try going with those! (Of course, my closet is full of teal and white, but my colors are gray and yellow…but there you have it.)

Here are some ideas, but if you want some REAL inspiration, check out snippetandink.blogspot.com. She makes color-based inspiration boards that have me drooling (you may have to scroll down to previous weeks because she’s been posting pictures of real weddings recently).

Off the top of my head:

If your fiance will be wearing his Navy duds, you could do a navy and white theme. Always classic. For a fun, girly twist, you could do navy and pink. (http://snippetandink.blogspot.com/2008/08/board-272-party-girl.html)

Another sophisticated color combo for spring would be lavender and silver/gray. You could up the drama by using plum instead of the lavender. 

Here are some spring-appropriate Snippet-n-Ink boards that I’ve loved recently:

I believe White, Navy, and paler blue.  Think hydrangeas.  Think lighter blues with darker blues.  Like they’ve been pairing the pinks and reds ok?  White roses, also white hydrangeas.  Lots of gorgeous white colors.  And add some green in them.  Some of the green throated lillies are beautiful too.

Nautical theme to your invites or you can bring the country club aspect into it and have some cute pics made as you escape after the reception in a decorated golf cart!  Have the guys have a golf outing rather than a bachelor party!  And you could have a bridesmaids’ brunch at the club.

You could do white tabecloths and alternate light blue toppers in a shimmery fabric with the dark navy toppers in a shimmery fabric or find a topper with a nautical motif in navy, white and other blues!

Where my sis went to college, there was a sorority where the girls’ emblem was the anchor.  They had a huuuge anchor in front of their house and when a guy would get engaged to one of them, they’d tie him to the anchor with nautical rope.  That would be a hilarious pic. 

I assume you’re getting married with him in dress uniform?  That will be very elegant.

Navy dresses for bridesmaids and navy and white espadrilles!  Very country club preppy yet springtime cute!

Also, checked out the uniform for the Marines…seems their pants are a lighter blue.  I’d go with the two blues.  Lighter cornflower blue and the navy and white!

You could bring in the yellow as an accent color!

But I personally would not wear a yellow dress again.  Not a cocktail dress.  Not my good color.  Navy is more apt to get worn again.  Or some shade of blue.

I think as long as you don’t do ice blue and white you don’t run the problem of winter wonderland.

If you haven’t yet, I would do a Google image search for ‘spring colors.’ I found some really beautiful color mixtures.  This image of towels was probably my favorite (I know, a little silly) http://www.microfiber.org/images/weave.jpg

Remember, spring colors don’t have to be pastel if you don’t want them to be, and a dark navy is just as good as black to make bright colors pop.

I like the anchor idea! A nautical themed wedding could be so timeless and elegant – you could do mostly navy and white, with punches of another color that you like (yellow or mint green would be gorge).

I did a quick Google image search for "nautical theme wedding anchor" and saw a couple of lovely images that could serve as inspiration:

Do you like the idea of incorporating a Navy theme into your wedding? Or were you thinking of something a little less strong? I personally love the clean look of navy, but I know it’s not for everyone.

I am doing hot pink, lemon yellow and navy as an accent color. My bmaid dresses are hot pink and I’m going to do a yellow sash. I am having a June wedding so I wanted the colors to be bright and fun.
