Mansi Asks: What colors go well with a navy blue summer wedding?

I am a having a south asian (Indian) wedding this summer in chicago. My dress for the reception is navy blue so that it going to be one of the colors for the wedding. I really need help incorporating the colors of flowers and decor. I love fuchsia/lime green which would go well with navy blue and reflects the summer wedding. Im not the biggest fan of orange which essentially works well with blue. Please help, do you have any better ideas?

    Hi Mansi,
    I think fuchsia is absolutely gorgeous with navy blue! You can’t really go wrong with it. Try pairing fuchsia shoes with your navy reception dress!

    If you want to try a different combination, I also like a deep purple or lavender mixed in with navy or with both navy and fuchsia. It keeps the tones a little deeper and softer. If you do incorporate the lime green, keep it subtle as it is a really powerful color; it doesn’t take much of it to have a major impact. I also suggest using the lime green mostly in real, organic things, like flowers, rather than in things like ribbons, attire or linens. Whatever you choose it will be beautiful!

    Happy Planning!

    Hi Mansi! I would consider using yellow and white with navy blue… it is a very classy and summer color combination. However, if you want something a bit more fun and vibrant, navy blue certainly looks great with fucshia and lime green. You can even add the yellow to this color combo for an added punch of color. Ask your floral designer about yellow and fuschia callas, roses, and green hypericum berries. All the best!

    I think that the fucshia and lime green combination would be beautiful. There are so many flower options in these colors and these tones are amazing with navy blue. I almost suggested orange but now that I see you don’t like that tone I am certain you are making the right choice!!! Consider orchids, roses, spray roses, stock, green cabbage roses, green button mums, spider mums, and hydrangea in green. Good luck!!

    Great question! We think some great colors to pair with navy would be white, yellow, beige, burgundy or even light grey! Hope we could help!

    Hi Mansi,
    I think fuchsia looks great. I know your wedding is a summer wedding but if you don’t lime green which is another good combination, try Silver (Matt Silver) or light Gray. Gray and Blue are one of oldest and best combinations. This way you may be able to use the Gray in groom’s attire as well. Thank you and good luck.

    Hi Mansi, my first choice would be mixed pink and white peonies. That would look fabulous with your navy blue dress.
