Wedding Color Scheme: Navy Blue

If you haven't yet heard, one of the big wedding colors for 2013 is navy blue (Pantone is calling it "monaco blue"), which means I should probably go into the business of reading crystal balls, as navy was my color before it was cool...see?

So if you're looking to stay on-trend (like me) with your wedding colors, you might want to use this deep shade of blue. But then the question remains, as it does anytime you pick your predominant color: how do you know what your accent colors should be? Well, like a good wedding planner, I've got you covered...with plenty of options!

  • Navy & Coral: What's not to love about this? I love how the coral brightens everything up. Perfect for spring & summer!

  • Navy & Blush: Blush pink is one of my newest favorite accent colors. It's just beautiful! It's light so it brings a look together without overpowering. And flowers in blush are effortlessly elegant.

  • Navy & Purple: With these two colors being so close on the color spectrum, they seemlessly blend together to create a gorgeous indigo tone. I suggest using all shades of purple, from lavender to eggplant alongside the deep blue. I love these colors together!

  • Navy & Mint: With mint being such a big color in fashion, this color duo makes perfect sense! Honestly, although I'm biased, any shade of green goes perfectly with navy, but this is, by far, my favorite!

  • Navy & Red: Red & blue may automatically conjure a view of the American flag, and you probably aren't looking for a patriotic color scheme. But simply deepening the shade of red and carefully blending the two shades creates a sophisticated fall or winter pallete, while a brighter shade of red allows for a nautical, summer look!
