It’s important to have your wedding invitations display your wedding colors so that your guests know what to expect. If you’re having a navy blue wedding, consider this Join the Celebration – Navy – Pocket Invitation. It’s wrapped up in navy stationery and includes colorful highlights of yellow and green.
Lighting is so important for setting the mood at your reception. You don’t want too harsh of lights, but you don’t want to be dancing in darkness either. Paper lanterns can be used both indoors and outdoors and give off a subtle, warm and inviting glow throughout your space. Combine your navy lanterns with other shades like yellow and white to bring some color to your venue. We love that the couple in our style board hung their paper lanterns from the rafters as a way to draw the eye upward.
It’s traditional for the groom to wear black on the big day, but by no means do you have to stick to that norm. Feel free to have your groom sport other dark colors, like navy! In fact, I’m beginning to like navy more than I like black. A navy sport coat paired with a checkered navy and white collared shirt and a blue and white striped bow tie brings just enough color and pattern to his outfit.
Use navy blue fruit to top your tiered confection. Blueberries not only pair deliciously with cake, they offer such simple, natural and beautiful decor for your sweet treat as well. Line each tier with a trail of blueberries, which form a stark contrast against the white frosting.
If you’re not quite ready to wear a navy wedding dress, incorporate the color into your outfit by rocking dark navy shoes! I love the slingbacks in our style board, which are topped off with a glittery bow.
Kindly ask your bridesmaids to look for a navy dress to wear for your wedding. You can have them all look uniform in the same ensemble, or simply give them guidelines on the color and length of the dress. Provide them with white bouquets so that they coordinate perfectly with your gown.
