Hi Lovely Ladies, We're getting married next September! (Yayyy) my colour scheme is Navy, creams & white. The bridesmaids will be in Navy dresses with simple calla Lilly bouquets & then the floral arrangements will be mostly whites & creams (with foliage) & then some navy/blue flowers to tie in the colour. Mother in law has now said she thinks it will look too contrasting & will clash? What do you guys think? Thanks
Hi Chloe the colour scheme sounds great to me :)
If you and your h2b like it then you should have it
What is there to clash? For what it's worth I think it sounds lovely. It is your day so do what you want (you can never please all of the people all of the time)
Thanks guys - she said the blue flowers would look too harsh against the cream/white. I kinda think, if you have a colour, surely you want it to pop!?!?
how can it clash? my wedding is also next september and we want to incorporate both our birth stones, ruby and sapphire. not sure how yet as don't want it to just look like red white and blue :D
My bridesmaids had navy dresses and white flowers. Personally I think it works perfectly, elegant and simple ️ our colour scheme was Navy, peach and gold x
Everyone has very different tastes in colour, go with what you like, it would be impossible to get everyone to like it
I had white and red and it looked classy. Ignore the MIL!
MILs opinion doesn't matter. Not her wedding,not her choice. Just smile and carry on with your plans
I think it sounds lovely, i didnt have same colour as you but people were like that when i told them my colour theme which was teal and fuchsia.
Good job it's not up to your mother in law huh?
Don't forget it's your wedding do it how you want it
I had navy blush ink and hot pink. Navy goes with most things don't worry and have whatever you like xx
Thanks ladies - I was getting insecure & thinking maybe I had missed something? I've gone back over & looked at sample ideas a million times now, as its sort of put a worry on me! She even said again today how I need to have another colour to break it up - I think shes still got her last sons wedding in her mind, who were dusky pink & pale blue!
Well i get married next weekend and we have red white and blue as our colours. You pick what you & h2b want x
It's a lovely combination
Sounds very sophisticated to me.
I think it looks great! X
Love your idea ..... I did something similar ....
Had some in Cadbury dark purple & some in silver dove grey & 1 with May blossom turquoise flowers on white....& they all beautifully blended together .... I loved them together !!!! 💫⭐️💜⭐️💜⭐️💫
Just because a colour is contrasting, doesn't mean it will clash. Navy and cream will look lovely. I had mainly purple but added a dash of orange/yellow/pink because I wanted the contrast. It looked lovely in the end
White flowers are classy and go with anything so they will not clash at all. Go with what you want.
I think it will look lovely.the colours will work well together..if she thinks that will clash she should com see my wedding..we're having rainbow(next year) my young daughters chose it.were having bright colour so on white!! Good luck with ur big day x
No definitely not!! It'll be beautiful! Whites and creams go with everything and a little bit if blue will set it all off beautifully!!xx
Ask a florist to help you with colours
my colour scheme is cadbury purple but having dusky pink in my flowers to break it up as just white and purple flowers looked harsh and made my skin tone look dull so maybe try another colour to break it up your florist will advise whats best and even she will say another colour to break it up (if shes a good florist!!)
I'm having very similar next September too! I think it will look fine, it will compliment it well x
My bridesmaids wore navy and they had all white bouquets. I had a white and navy bouquet
Tell your mother in law that it's your wedding and not her concern if you turned up carrying a bunch of dandelions. Have what YOU want xxx
Contrasting colours work great, I was bm for my friends wedding and we had beautiful yellow sunflowers for our bouquets and it looked beautiful against our navy dresses.
It's your wedding scheme and colour choice not hers! Go with what you want and what will make you happy. There is loads of ideas on pintrest if you put your colour scheme in! It'll look beautiful because it's your wedding!
I'm getting married next September too and my colour theme is also blue and white
If you want to check out if any colours work together just go to a haberdashery and find ribbons in the colours of your scheme and see if you think they clash or not. This way you won't have to spend any money but you'll see the colours together. I'm having a similar colour theme to you and I think they look sofistcated and classy together
Speak to your florist. Get them to put a few flowers of your chosen colours together and see. Good luck, trust your choice.
Great choice, navy is a great colour and totally on vogue the 2018. An additional colour could be the way to make your wedding stand out, but shouldn't take away from your theme. Something as small as the ribbon on the bouquets and some gems in the floral arrangements would add that individual touch.
Definitely won't clash! Navy and cream is such a classic combination that doesn't date. Sounds lovely to me :-)
No it won't clash. It will look awesone
It's your day not your mother in laws . Navy cream and white will look very classy !
We had a hint of red with royal blue and ivory. It wasn't supposed to be "British" that wasn't the idea but it looked lovely. Go with your heart and don't worry what others think. Our hint of red was a touch of my grandad being there on the day as sadly he's no longer with us. He always used to wear a red waist coat exactly like the ones the page boys are wearing. So please remember it's your day, and you do what you feel in your heart. Xxx
My colours were dark red and dark purple and we had calla lilies in ours. I wanted some white roses in there but people said it might look a bit polka dot like. So I just had deep colours in the flowers and they were gorgeous. So maybe just have the white and cream in the flowers as that will go well against bridesmaid dresses xx
We got married two weeks ago and our theme was navy and pale blue and cream. It worked perfectly. The bridesmaid bouquets are fake flowers which my grandad re wired to be the same shape as my bouquet which was real cream roses. X
The colour seems sounds really nice :)
I think it will be stunning xx
Sounds lovely xx
If I were getting married again these would be the colours I would choose, sounds wonderful, don't doubt yourself.
