    Yellow could look nice but I would go for a deeper yellow like a sunflower yellow and mix in some white flowers with that or you could just match the dresses to their blues.

    I am doing red and a light blue as my colors, it matches nicely with the army blues! I kept putting colors next to them. A candle apple and a malibu blue are what I am using specifically.

    What if you got swatches from either salons ($1 a peice at DB, $6.50 for all at AA) or pieces of fabric (mostly free from fabric stores for a swatch) and then you can match them with his uniform and take the swatches with you shopping.

    I would match the blue to their pants.... or maybe a shade lighter...

    arent the class a's still green?! My dh has a "monkey suit" hanging in the closet for years and its green. a darker OD green, but its been a while, lol...so i could totally be wrong

    You need to go with a deeper red, not a bright red. A good option is David's Bridals color Apple.

    I would stay away from yellows. It can actually clash with the yellows on their ASUs. Not just that- it's super hard to match! A red will be easier to find stuff that matches.

    Another option is a forest green to compliment the blue and give a nod to the old Class As- but it might be a bit dark for a May wedding.

    What about a grey- almost pewter color. It would bring out the grey undertones of the ASU pants.

    Head to your local Hardware store and pick up paint chips in the colors you like. Theyre free and that way you can hold them up next to the Dress Blues and see which ones you like best

    Why not navy dresses?

    I put this together for another bride.. I know it is not the exact colors you are using, but an idea.
