Royal Blue and what other color?
I am interested in Royal blue for my wedding. I was thinking royal blue with purple, or a light green. I liked blue and pink but I didnt want it to look like a baby shower. I also like royal blue and tiffany blue. Any suggestions???

If you go with a light green that would be pretty for a summer wedding. If you do the right shade of pink it won't look like a baby shower, especially if it's a strong shade of blue - maybe a bright fuschia accent. As long as it's not powder blue & pastel pink. I think even a bright yellow mixed in with light green's would be nice. I think Blue & Purple are too close in shade & would not provide the best "pop" of color for the wow factor. You can always ask your florist for suggestions. Maybe check out some invitations or napkins colors & other favor ideas on my wedding invitation site for some ideas as well.

I love the blue and green. We were originally going to do navy, apple green and cream. But then once I got to thinking more about it, it would have seriously clashed with our venue. (it's a historic 1920's building) But I LOVE that combo, sooo pretty.

Royal blue and silver is dramatic.

I agree. Silver would be dramatic and there are lots of shades of silver/gray/pewter you might try. There's a blogger I love called perfect palette. See if she has any of your colors.

Play with Pantone options. I agree (depending on the level of formality), silver would be a beautiful accent. Consider bringing in sutler hints of silver paired with royal blue matched with various hues of blue (maybe a blue/green shade). I also like royal blue with tangerine.

Let us know what you decide!

I love royal blue! It looks great with bold colors like fuschia, lime green and tangerine. Silver is also a great accent.

Royal Blue with hints of Orange. We did this for a wedding on the beach. It came out so romantic with Royal blue centerpieces and orange flowers.

Royal blue and white is always great together, if not, silver is classy!

Royal blue is also such a strong color that it can stand on its own. So, I agree with the white and silver, that would be very elegant. Also, I think a light tan cream color would be nice. But, I also love the punch that a splash of orange adds! But silver/white/tan sets a completely different mood from the orange.

I just wrote a blog article about choosing colors and using Home Depot for inspiration! ha! More specifically Behr paint. They have this great color coordinating system on their site that is fun to use and get more free expert color advice. Check my blog out here:

Good luck!

I love the Royal and Tiffany blue idea!! Just be careful. My colors were going to be Tiffany Blue, Silver, and White, but nobody could get the Tiffany Blue right in my opinion. The color is is so unique. I changed my colors to Marine, Silver, and White.

I would recommend the Royal Blue and Green color combination. If you are looking for something a little more on the bold side, I would pair the blue with an orange or yellow. The brightness of these warm tones will definitely pop against the blue!

we are hosting a wedding in may of this year and the colors that the bride has chosen are royal blue and canary yellow. have you tried going to and creating a color inspiration board with the colors of your choice? its really simple and you can try your royal blue with several other options to see how well the colors work together. good luck.

Royal Blue seems to be a very popular color lately - at least thats what we have noticed. We have rented linens and accessories with many color combos including Royal Blue. But my favorite has been the Tiffany blue combo. We carry the exact pantone of Tiffany blue - so if you need something shipped to you - don't hestitate to ask for help or check out
You can also accent with silver and a darker silver called platinum. Lastly, I have done hints of pink with this color combo and it looked fantastic! Good luck with whatever you choose!
