Navy and Green Color Scheme

Dreaming of hosting a preppy spring wedding? Consider a navy-and-green color scheme. The deep blue and emerald green bring a luxurious — and almost regal! — vibe to a stylish outdoor celebration.

While both shades are statement making, they're still subtle, so you can use them equally. Choose details like your tablecloth, bridesmaid dresses, and stationery in navy. And contrast the midnight color with pops of green by selecting shoes, napkins, accessories, and succulents in the jewel tone. And though we especially love this color combo for April or May nuptials, the palette could easily transition into a late-summer or early-fall country club wedding or even a chic cocktail affair.

Regardless of when or where you choose to marry, this formal yet fresh pairing can easily be tweaked to suit your wedding style.
