FH and I have been going back and forth about colors and themes for our wedding this December. We just cannot decide on any colors.
Since I have a saphire in my engagment ring we first started off thinking about using a deep navy blue, white, and silver but my dress (below, the picture doesn’t do it justice! ) has some gold tones in it (even if it doesn’t look like it in the picture.) so I wasn’t sure if it would actually fit in with the color theme or not.
Then we decided something along the lines of maybe a wine color with gold, since they seem to compliment it so well, but I wasn’t sure what color tie, and suit, etc. FH would be wearing then to fit in with the theme since I can’t really imagine a black suit/tux with a wine colored tie on FH…Then I came up with a forest green color scheme that solved the problem of the tie and suit issue, but once again I’m not sure if my dress with fit comfortably in the theme. I’m really starting to regret my dress decision. I just don’t want the dress to stand out too much against the color palate. Am I over thinking this too much, I mean the dress is Ivory so it should technically go with anything right?
Any advice/help/suggestions would bre greatly appreciated! <3

I think you can still do navy blue and silver even if your dress has some small gold details. Perhaps add some gold details to the rest of your wedding too? I think Navy, silver and a touch of gold would be quite nice for a winter wedding!

My wedding is in December and my dress is ivory but the beading gives it a goldish tone at the top. I went with Hunter Green, Eggplant and Gold for our colors and am finding that it is all coming together really nice. With the hunter green where we are incorporating it (table runners, sashes, Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses) we are doing it all in satin so it is more like an emerald jewel tone color instead which goes a lot better with the gold than if we were doing a more dull hunter green.
I think if you stuck with the forest green or switched to hunter green either would go just fine with your dress!
