{Country Club Chic}: A Palette of Navy Blue, Gray + White

April 15, 2010


{Navy Blue, Gray + White}

There's something about the idea of using navy blue in a wedding that admittedly makes me wish that I could do it all over again! I'd marry the same guy, of course! But seriously...I'm a tad smitten with this palette. Navy blue is the obvious choice for a nautical wedding, but it's also a color that has all kinds of fun associations. When I think of navy blue I think of all things preppy. It's surely a palette that makes me think of this look I like to call, "country club chic." Imagine the idea of private school uniforms and yaught clubs. I absolutely adore this non traditional look for the groomsmen. Sweater vests + ties with khakis to coordinate? How charming is that? {continued...}

Details We Love
Polka Dot Necktie + Bridal Party Attire

What makes this palette work is the use of fun patterns like the polka dots pictured on that necktie and the gingham tablecloths. Plus, I think the double silhouette motif absolutely mimics that preppy traditional vibe that we're going for here. I think that while the groomsmen attire comes across as very preppy, the use of unexpected patterns adds a touch of fun. Because let's face it, who can take polka dots seriously? This traditional palette would look lovely in a nautical setting like perhaps up near an old lighthouse in Maine. I can also see this color palette being perfect if you were to want to incorporate a sailing theme. So what do you think? Are you a fan of navy blue like me?
