Listen up, sophisticated brides: Navy blue was MADE pour vous. Whether you like your navy nautical-cool (navy, white, red, gold) or New-England-classic (navy, ivory, green, silver), navy, aka the new black, is among the hottest “anchor” hues for 2012 and 2013 wedding palettes. Combo it with coral and cream for a totally modern color scheme. Or marry it with lilac and pewter, with accents of delicate lace. Our favorite navy touches include navy-blue wedding shoes, like Nina’s jeweled, peep-toe Elke pump in “True Blue;” a navy grosgrain ribbon belt for your classic wedding gown; tabletop touches like dark-blue glass bottles and votive holders; and all manner of b-maid bounty, from navy chiffon shifts to striped clutches.
