- Wedding: June 2013
We’re in wedding colour limbo.
We originally got excited about a palatte of navy, grey, and yellow, with the use of polka dots (those three colours with white whenever polka dots were used) here and there –beverage napkins, guestbook table tablecloth, etc. The other crinkle is that one of my BM’s is a man, so we want the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses to be navy (so that the man can wear a navy suit) and the GMs in grey suits.
Now, I’m having second thoughts. There is quite a bit of navy in our venue, and we both like navy, so that one will stay. I also want to keep the polka dots here and there, so we don’t want colours that will make that look too juvenile. I’d like to bring some pink or mint into the mix, but not too pastel-y or girly. What do you think? Any suggestions? I’m having trouble finding images of colours with navy that I like. I’d like to add a blush pink or a mint, maybe removing the yellow.
So, criteria: navy, grey are must-haves. Then we want one or two other colours that are pretty, and lend themselves to subtle polka dots when combined with white or ivory.
Some inspirations boards I like:
1) Our original concept, which I still like, but maybe don’t LOVE: http://photos.theknot.com.au/content/photos/000/084/625/image0s/original_original_navy-yellow-grey95.jpg
