    Nutts Navy Wedding Colors

    Hello Ladies!! Ok, so we have set a date.. we I set a date.. Nov. 2008. With that said, Df will be in his dress blues, and so will have of the groomsmen.
    So ... does anyone have any color ideas? I love the pastel pink and lit. olive, but I feel like that is too springy. How do I match colors that wont clash with the guys' uniforms? I really dont want to do red and white, that makes me feel too... American Flag? (sorry, I do support and love, but I dont want to make it look "too much?" if you get what Im saying..)
    I like the idea of different shades of either green-gray green - olive, or burgundy/red since its winter.. Blue and white is pretty, but then Ill feel like Im bringing in Christmas.. Am I just freaking out too early haha.. I think Im just scared it is going to all look bad! What did some of you navy wives do for your wedding?
    Help!!! I need ideas, someone to some sense into me!

    I'm getting married in late September 2008 in Maine, and because the trees will be changing colors around that time, we decided on burgundy, dark green, and gold/yellow for colors. Those colors would work for November, too!

    Sigh, I agree, but technically they are (or are traditionally) midnight blue. Under most lighting, Midnight blue shows up black then black shows up under those lights. Black usually shows up with a blue tint. Why can't we call them navy Tux's?

    I like the red and burgandy
