Okay, I’m new to posting on boards.
I’m planning on getting married in Sept of 2010.
I’m torn between our favorite colors which are navy blue and white or using fall colors such as brown, orange, crimson etc. The only thing is what color flowers could I use for the centerpieces if I go with navy blue and white? I would rather not use flowers as centerpieces but I can’t really think of what I could use as centerpieces for the navy blue and white.
I think it’s easier to find centerpieces using fall colors which I really like, so I feel torn. That’s all I’ve been thinking about. Another thing is if I do go with fall colors I feel like my bouquet would have some pretty colors but how about the navy and white? What color bouquet could I get? I’m not really feeling blue in my wedding bouquet. If anyone can suggest or have tips it would be greatly appreciated. I’m not really creative and need all the help I can get. Thanks in advance for any help.

What if you did colors like this, and add in the crisp white? It would give you options for flowers, along with some fall hues, while including the navy and white that you love?

or you could have Navy & White with a pop of red or a pop of orange, so that way your flowers could be red/orange/yellow (whatever fall color you like) but your main colors would still be the navy & white that you like!

I like the idea of using navy and white with accents of orange and a golden yellow–the bursts of fall colors would look great against navy.

Wow, I didn’t think about it like that because I thought you had to stick with just 2 colors. I figured w/ fall I can use a few colors but didn’t want to use more than 5. I like the idea of accents w/ orange. I really love the navy blue. Thanks for replying. 🙂

Ooh! I’d add in a bit of bright yellow. That would be really pretty!
My sister did navy, white, and silver for her December wedding. Her flowers were mostly white with some light blue, and the centerpieces were branches with glitter on them (it looked nice, not tacky).

You could do some wonderful things with Navy and White as a base. I am also a Sept 2010 bride and here in Chicago we try to stretch the summer as long as possible so I am not even worrying about a fall theme. I love the ideas people have already said. Depending on your style there are so many options.
I think Navy, Silver, White and Orange is a great modern palate. Or if you wanted to do a more traditional/classically elegant style then maybe Navy, White, a light blue or blue grey, and yellow. Last, this may be just me, but I also think peacock feathers and navy are so wonderful together, that in itself could be a really rich palette but maybe not as fall inspired as you would like.
Here are some inspiration photos I had that might be helpful for you.

Humm, some things did not upload because of size – trying again.

You can always have more than 2 colors! Older people might look at you weird, but recent brides will understand. I like the idea of navy with splashes of yellow and orange. The pictures above are great.
The website Perfect Palette has a ton of inspiration boards to meet almost any color combinations.
