Fall Wedding Palette: Navy and Lime

Navy and lime are colors that are bright and beautiful, but they still give off a perfect “fall” vibe. The result is clean, fresh, and vivid. Creating a navy and lime wedding palette is fairly easy. Check out the following ideas that will help you out.

Reception Table

Think of navy as your “base” color. Since it’s darker and more neutral, it works very well for a foundation. You can then use the lime to build on the navy, adding accent items and pulling the colors together.

Family Dynamics

Pay close attention to family dynamics when planning your seating chart. It wouldn’t be a good idea to place two family members who don’t get along at the same table. Also, if a family member is particularly shy, sit them at a table with a more outgoing person rather than another shy individual.

Older Family Members

You might want to make special considerations for elder family members. For instance, placing them closest to the restrooms is a good idea, so they won’t need to walk far. Also, it’s best to sit them farther away from the DJ speakers and at a table with someone who will be helpful should the elder family members need something.

Avoiding the Awkward

You can avoid awkward situations and periods of inactivity by enlisting help. Having your bridesmaids act as hostesses can ensure that everyone knows where the restrooms are, that everyone has been given something to drink or eat, and that everyone is having a great time.
