If you’re looking to create an elegant scene but you’d like to stay away from black, consider a colour combination of navy and gold. Classic, stylish and pretty all rolled in to one, these hues work well together throughout the year. Let’s take a look at some of our favourite gold and navy wedding ideas, from stationery to cakes and table décor.
Start at the very beginning, introducing your colour scheme through your invitations.
Bang on trend, this invitation is a wonderful Art Deco style. Navy and gold are the perfect choice for a Great Gatsby theme.

All About Décor
It’s time to bring your chosen colours in to the venue. Navy and gold are bold shades so need only be used sparingly. Simple is often the most effective!
This wedding venue looks beautifully elegant with simple navy napkins and neutral runners. The look could be made more glamorous with the addition of gold runners.

Sometimes, all you need are gold chairs! You might also consider having navy table linen on the top table with white table linen on the others.

This top table dressed in gold is fabulously decadent and just the thing for an evening wedding. Adorning only the chairs of the bride and groom is a fun idea.

For a country look, keep the tables rustic, introducing delicate navy linen and glassware with just a hint of gold.

Think of your cake as a blank canvas, the perfect way to introduce your colour scheme and wedding style.
