Fuchsia and Navy Blue Weddings

Ideas and Inspirations | Photos and Galleries
Colors: Raspberry Pink and Navy Blue
Motif: Raspberries and Blueberries
On Friday - Kim {from The Event Essentials blog} posted about fuschia and navy weddings as she is now a matron of honor for her dear friend who wants a blue or deep purple and the fiancé wants a raspberry pink color. She posed a question wondering if anyone would help her create some fun color palettes with the magenta/raspberry/fuchsia pinks and aqua/navy blue scheme. So, here we are. This is my inspiration board for the wedding and the more I thought about it, I realized why not actually incorporate raspberries and blueberries into the overall theme. I absolutely love the bright pink centerpiece arrangement {from Table Settings with Pictures}. Adding candles that float atop blueberry filled cylinders with small galvanized pails that are filled with fresh blueberries would complete the table setting. The perfect favor for your wedding guests would be homemade raspberry jam. Add your guest names to the lid and you have both a personalized favor and place card. {favor image from Martha Stewart, the recipe for Red Raspberry Jam is also available on her site} The navy and pink wedding invitation from Custom Programs is the ideal invitation to introduce your color scheme to guests. The wedding dress {from David's Bridal} features a ribbon waist accent (in your choice of colors) and comes with sleeve options (if desired). The bridesmaid dress is a crinkled chiffon A-line frock with a ruffled halter neckline and a navy sash from Alvina Valenta. The finishing element for those who wish to serve their guests an alternative to the wedding cake is a Very Berry Cupcake {from Ana Henneberke's flickr gallery}.
