What shade of blue are you using?

If you’re using navy and white, I think a bold pop of yellow, orange or pink would be beautiful, especially in June.

I used navy and white, and at the last minute added a few small splashes of yellow.  It depends on the look you are going for.  If you play it right, navy and white can be very elegant, but it can also be plain.  I was worried about the latter, so I incorporated a tiny bit of yellow in the seating cards, Bridesmaid or Best Man bouquets, table numbers,  and in my paper goods.  t did add a little pop that was beautiful, and it made it more preppy.  Like Laylabelle said above, the black will depend on the shade of blue you are using, and it will also depend on HOW you incorporate it.  NAvy and black is tough to pull off but it could be done.

I can see wanting to add a third color if your wedding colors are “anything” and white.  White is tough to be considered a color, when you have tableclothes, the bride’s dress parts of invitations etc. that are commonly white.  And I love blue and white together.  I agree about depending on the color blue.  I’m not sure if I ike the idea of navy and black.  But maybe if it’s a lighter blue.  I also like the other color suggestion that were mentioned.

I don’t think adding another color is a big deal at all! I guess it depends on what shade of blue you’re working with but I do think the addition of black is a little bit of an odd color combo but hey, if you love it, go for it! Black will be a little bit more difficult to incorporate since there aren’t flowers in that color but you can do random black accents (napkins, escort cards, programs, favors, etc), for sure!

I had to go look up Cornflower Blue on Davids Bridal, it’s really pretty! I think will black will look fine with it, but so would dark brown!!

sounds like a good idea to me! I’m all for colors colors colors…. why limit yourself to two? especially when one is white (and now the third is black) — I’ve got like 8 shades of every color going on! Haha… (okay, that’s an exaggeration, but hopefully you get my point)

Could your BM’s wear black shoes? And you could use black touches in the wedding itself – like a black monogram on centerpieces or place cards, or even one for the dance floor. What color are your linens? You could do a table square in black, or have black napkins instead of white.

I’d go with a slate gray or charcoal instead of black – you could add sashes to the dress, or shoes.

Or – consider a marigold yellow – it would complement the blue beautifully!
