Perfect Palette: Pink and Navy

Picking the perfect colors to accent your wedding day can be downright difficult. I think a common mistake a lot of brides make is picking their two favorite colors and going overboard. Matching tablecloths, napkins, chair sashes…it can turn into a kid’s party faster than you can say “happy birthday”. 

My advice is to choose colors that complement each other rather than compete with each other. Pink and Navy is one of my favorite color combos right now. For those brides that die for pink, navy is the perfect color to offset it and add a touch of masculinity. Your groom will thank you!

Looking at design and fashion magazines is the perfect place to start to finding some really beautiful color combinations. 

Hiring the right person to do your stationary can make all the difference. These gorgeous invitations from 120 Water Street were completely customized to fit the wedding’s theme and couple’s taste. Your invitations will set the tone for your wedding and should fit in with the overall picture you have envisioned for your day.

Putting the bridesmaids in the more masculine or neutral tone will let your brighter accent color truly pop. 
I absolutely love a patterned tie or bow tie. This is  a great place to add a little personality and this bow tie would be perfect on a the ring bearer!

White is the perfect backdrop for this navy table runner and pink pop of flowers. 

Looking for the perfect wedding exit? Streamers are definitely unique and they could also double as a favor.

Details, Details…

For me, a beautiful wedding is all in the details. The little things you do for your guests, the personal touches you add to your tables, and everything in between that makes your guests say “wow”. 

A beautiful Brooch added to your bouquet.

If having an outdoor ceremony, why not cool guests down with some refreshing lemonade?
Take a look at this gorgeous dessert table. Using a piece of furniture instead of the typical rental table + tablecloth instantly adds lots of personality! Using homemade paper pom balls are also an easy and cheap way to make a gorgeous backdrop.
A seating chart is a great place to be creative and do something unique! These vintage windows were purchased in an antique store and hung from the tree with a hemp rope. 

Your place settings DO NOT I repeat DO NOT have to match. This vintage tablescape is absolutely beautiful and uses mismatched china, salad plates, and napkins. 

A collection of really beautiful glassware can make the perfect centerpiece.
