So I am having some difficulty settling on wedding colors and was hoping for some suggestions!
My darling FH has been 100% supportive in whatever I want for the wedding. The only thing that he has asked for is that he is able to wear a dark blue tux for the wedding, which I of course am more than happy to accomodate. My concern is though, since he has his heart set on a dark blue suite, does that lock me into specific color options? I was leaning more toward burgundy, gold (or champagne) and Ivory but will that look odd with his tux?
The groomsmen will not be matching him. Anyone have any examples of color schemes that you think might fit?
Thanks in advance ladies!

I think you can do champagne and ivory, but not burgundy and darker gold colors. I think a blush pink would be beautiful or other pastels. Have you seen the david’s bridal color juniper? I think that would work too if you like bright, popping colors. I’m going with a peacock theme and love how green, blues and purples work together.

@Maddybug: The basic rule of colors in art, hair, interior design, etc is the colors directly opposite of the color wheel from eachother will look contridicting but great with eachother! Warm colors like yellows, oranges would look great with dark blue! My vote would be on a pretty peachy color!

@Maddybug: what colour will the groomsmen be in?

@mypinkshoes: It’s looking like the groomsmen will be in a dark charcoal color. But I am open to other options at this point!

@Maddybug: i think you could get away with more of a plum or eggplant purple (rather than a burgundy which can have more of a red tone) and still be able to pull it off…
though i do say this being slightly biased as my own wedding scheme is blue and purple…though of the lighter and brighter variety…lol.
It looks like your wedding is in summer…and i think a dark blue, dark purple, and dark charcoal would be very, well, dark to put together…i would consider incorporating a bright, bold color like yellow to help brighten it up for the season…

@Maddybug: i was going to suggest dark grey for the men. i think it will look good with your fi’s navy. blush for the girls would look great with both. it’s a summer wedding so it will be lovely.

I would say blush or peach for accent colors or Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses!
This groom is in navy with the groomsmen in charcoal, which I think looks great!
