help with colors!

My fiance is a Capt in the Army, so we are doing a military wedding in July of next year. I know that the wedding colors don't have to match the uniforms, but I'd obviously like them to complement the uniforms to a point.

We are having our wedding in Texas, so I was thinking that a orange and yellow with blue accents (similar to the color of the pants of the dress blues), but I honestly don't know.

Have any of you had summer military weddings? What colors have you had success with?

Thanks!!

    Don't worry about colors too much. I think your idea would be beautiful.  I'm getting married in May and my colors are navy and hot pink. 
    Dress blues are neutral enough that you don't have to worry about clashing.

    I agree, go with whatever colors you want.

    We're doing red and blue because it's 4th of July and cutesy IMO, it could look awful though lol. But the blues and red are different shades than FIs uniform. Oops. Oh well.

    Im having the same issue! My inner fashionista is wanting the colors to match with the dress blues! But, I thought about it, and yeah, most colors will compliment them nicely, plus your man will be in his uniform, looking fabulously handsome. I'm doing hot pink, I've juggled navy some to pull in the dress blues, but thats just me!

    Good luck!!

    um.. well I am doing a military wedding for July of this year. My fiance is in the Army as well and we are doing Cream, Teal, and Chocolate Brown. He is not wearing his military suit though, he decided against that. If you need anymore help contact me.
