Wedding ideas by colour: Navy blue bridesmaid dresses | CHWV

While we don’t generally think of navy blue when it comes to bridesmaid dresses, it’s a colour that’s definitely worth considering…

As well as combining beautifully with the traditional white or ivory bridal gown, Navy Blue is flattering, elegant and suits both summer and winter celebrations. Take a peek at a few of our favourite dresses…

Evening Elegance

These beautiful gowns would be the perfect choice for a winter wedding. The lace gives the dress a short sleeve while adding a touch of glamour.

A Dress to Dance

A long dress adds an element of formality, and these stunning designs will look amazing on the dance floor! Some bridesmaids prefer strapless gowns while others like to have something over their shoulders. While differing slightly in style, the three dresses work perfectly together.

Co-ordinating Florals

Blue flowers are almost impossible to find. Here, navy dresses are accessorised with ivory and peach blooms, tying the look in perfectly with the bride’s ivory gown.

Time to Shimmer

Navy works perfectly with metallics, adding a splash of sparkle and shimmer. Here, a simple belt is an eye-catching accessory and helps the bridesmaids to co-ordinate with the bride. All they need now is some fabulous silver shoes!

Winter Chic

Navy works well in summer and winter, but in those cooler months you may need to accessorise with pretty shawls. Grey is a great colour choice, particularly when chosen as a suit colour by your groom and his ushers. It makes for a stylish bridal party.

Summer Style

Shown here at a summer wedding, the bridesmaids all look stunning in their above-the-knee dresses. Nude shoes are perfect for this daytime look. If you do opt for shorter dresses, make sure all your bridesmaids are happy with the choice!

In the Pink

Shorter dresses again, but this time with a splash of colour. Hot pink flowers add a lively tone to this look and co-ordinate perfectly with the navy dresses. The key is to keep your accessories simple – hot pink shoes might be a step too far!

Simple Elegance

A shorter dress can also work perfectly for a winter wedding with the addition of a sleeve. This beautifully cut design with its three-quarter sleeve is oh-so-flattering and super stylish.

Luxe in Lace

If you’d just like to add a hint of navy to your look, consider an ivory dress with navy detail or accessories. We love this pretty dress with a navy lace overlay.

If you’re choosing silver or gold to co-ordinate with your navy colour scheme, consider it as a shade for your younger bridesmaids. These flower girls look the part in their shimmering dresses with navy sash.
