{Wedding Colors I love}: Navy Blue, Coral + Antique Gold!

Here recently I received a request from a lovely reader who explained to me that she was dreaming of a nautical inspired wedding with elegant touches. She said she appreciated both modern and vintage styles, but that she was at a loss on how to pull all of her ideas together. Could I bring it to life, she asked? Of course! I said. I don't know about you, but I'm finding myself falling more and more in love with the color navy blue! Add in some vibrant coral, and some pretty pinches of gold and you've got yourself a look that's super pretty. Want to add modern flair to your wedding styling? I suggest incorporating bold prints as seen here on these table numbers and clutches. I even chose a necklace with stripes just for good measure! To me, these prints and patterns feel nautical without going to overboard.

I like the way that navy blue contrasts with coral because they truly do pop when paired together. And just to keep things interesting, I suggest incorporating a little bit of antique gold. This little bit of gold adds a vintage feel as seen here in the gold vessels used as centerpieces. Plus they perfectly incorporate the colors I've featured here which is quite a treat to see. So what do you think? Are you feeling inspired by my take on nautical meets modern meets vintage?

Coral and Navy together is genius. Adding in the touch of gold puts this on a whole new level. You did such a great job bringing this to life.
