{Real Palettes} Margot’s Coral and Navy Vintage Wedding Invitations

Posted by on Aug 1, 2011 in Real Palettes |

Navy continues to be a popular and interesting choice for wedding invitations, as seen in Natalie’s recent Asian navy and fuchsia wedding invitation. But when Margot came to me with coral and navy, I was intrigued. That was a new one, and I loved it!

Apparently, the uniqueness of the color combination was what drew Margot to the choice as well. “Because I hadn’t seen them done together before, and we wanted every detail of the wedding to be as unique as our relationship.” Margot says. “Green and pink were my first choices. I love the bright fun playful ambiance those two colors represent together.”

She admits she had help coming up with the palette.

“I am incredibly fickle minded, so admittedly I prefer loved ones to make these types of decisions for me!” she says. “I asked my maid of honor for her suggestion, and that was coral. And our wedding is taking place at a beautiful waterfront restaurant in Annapolis MD, across from the Naval academy with all navy umbrellas on the decks. So that is how coral and navy was born.”

For her wedding Margot is sticking with these colors, and adding ivory.

“The bridesmaids are wearing coral, and the men are wearing navy blazers. And our flowers will be a mix of ivory and coral dahlias.”

Margot has some advice for picking your wedding color palette. “Google them, and if the inspiration boards that the professionals have put together for your color combinations make you smile, go with it.”
