The light blue and yellow combination on the brim were very striking to me… perhaps something along that scheme? Reminds me of a sunset

 

Or maybe ditch co-ordinating with his uniform and look to the venue instead. Dig up photos of it during the time of year you plan on marrying and take inspiration from the colors you see there… or set a “theme” and use colors based on that.

I agree…blue and yellow would look great together. Since you’re doing it on the beach you could always just do lots of white. I think for bm dresses a yellow would look great or even navy.

I agree with Cybele light blue and yellow.

Just used a couple of online color generators … try these specific combinations. I’ve mostly used yellow as the main color, blue as secondary sage and gold/bronze as accents.

 

The next one is breezy white-based… the colors are not too dark

 

This is mainly blue based… if you dont want to include too much yellow

 

And this palette is for the guys … pick any of these to match up against chosen colors from the above palettes, I’m partial towards the greys myself as it help offset a bright combination without dulling the colors

Hope this helps!

What if you used pewter instead of silver?

Definitely the dusty blue vs. the dark pink

My friend did black and champagne and it was really classy with the uniforms.

Nah they didn’t clash. In fact, here’s my husband and I in our wedding attire. I don’t have a big group photo at work.

I dunno, officers have a lot of black on their uniforms anyways. They had black bow ties and cords and other doo dads. The groom was an officer, too. Honestly, they had so much crap on their uniforms (tours of Iraq will do that for ya!) we could’ve worn green and still matched, haha.

Here’s another one. She wore a black gown to a ball and he wore his uniform.

My Fiance is wearing his blues in the wedding, as well as his army friends/groomsman but I honestly never thought about color coordinating to his uniform. My colors are pale pink, chocolate, gold, and ivory and from the planning we’ve done, it’ll all look great. Do you have any ideas about colors without trying to coordinate? Try thinking about what colors you like and what kind of vision you have and see how that works. All the color schemes you bees have come up are lovely, just another persepctive!
