Navy blue and white is a classic pairing: dressed down, it’s perfect for weddings with a nautical theme; dressed up, it’s an elegant combination that can work in any season. Because navy is a neutral color, it’s a perfect accent to many color schemes. As autumn balances summer and winter as warm fall days cool down into crisp fall nights, it’s the ideal time to let navy take center stage.
Navy blue paired with a dusty pink is the perfect combination of masculine and feminine colors. Still, navy goes beautifully with copper or gold metallics and the warm colors of fall. Pair navy with a lighter shade of blue and loads of fresh greenery, and you have a monochrome palette that complements a white wedding dress beautifully. Another beautiful combination is navy and lavender paired with a deeper shade of greenery, and for an evening wedding, navy and silver celebrate the night.
Make a statement with navy blue table linens: Navy table linens are a bold choice that contrasts beautifully with white china. Use metallic chargers in shades of bronze or gold to add drama, or accessorize the table with clear glassware for a striking wedding tablescape. We love the idea of dotting the tables with clear glass vases filled with stems of blue grape hyacinth. When choosing flowers for the head table, classic pairings could include white hydrangea, baby’s breath, and blue viburnum berries or a lavish arrangement filled with peonies, roses, tweedia and hydrangea.
Create a cohesive look for the wedding party: If you’re planning an evening wedding and want to dress the bridesmaids in dark colors, navy is one of the most flattering colors around. It’s less harsh than black and complements all skin tones. For a semi-formal wedding where the groomsmen will be wearing suits instead of tuxedos, a grey suit paired with a navy tie and pocket square and crisp white shirt has a sharp look. Pick a boutonniere to match the bridal bouquet and you’re all set.
