Color Palettes Questions - An Accent For Navy and Sage Green
August 4, 2008

It's been so long since we tackled color palette dilemmas...and I thought it was about time! Throughout the day, I am going to be posting questions from readers who are having some color issues with the hopes that you guys can give your feedback and advice! At the end of the day, I will update with my own tips!

Let's get to it!

From Ashley...I have finally decided on the colors of the bridesmaid dresses, navy which is accented with a light sage green sash. Now, I really would like to include an accent color to add a little more flare to this color palette. I was thinking something along the lines of pink...but I am beginning to think that pink may be way too many colors. I am tossing around the idea of ivory or white as the third and final color for our wedding palette. Is this an appealing color palette or should I stick with the simple two color scheme of navy and sage??

Abby's Answer...Okay, I have to agree with the comments that suggested varying the hues of the navy and sage, rather than bringing in a different color. There is just something so clean and refreshing in a navy and green palette and if you bring in different hues, the palette will seem rich and textured...
