Hi, loves! Emma here. I am so in love with navy bridesmaid dresses — and not just because they look chic and pulled together, and pretty much rock in wedding photos. In fact, there are ten reasons why navy bridesmaid dresses are an easy choice for both the bride and her bridesmaids. Navy blue is a tried-and-true fashion staple and a classic choice for weddings. If you’re on the fence about what color bridesmaid dress you should pick, these reasons should help you decide (or at least narrow it down a bit). Read on to find out more, along with a few beautiful (and insanely affordable) bridesmaid dresses I know you’ll love. Enjoy!
Navy Bridesmaid Dresses
Here’s why bridesmaids (and brides!) love navy bridesmaid dresses:
1. Navy looks great in any season.
Navy can be worn (and looks fantastic) in spring, summer, winter or fall.
2. Bridesmaids will actually wear a navy blue dress again.
You might love hot pink or lime green, but in reality, how often will your bridesmaids wear it again? Navy blue is definitely a color they’ll wear time again. It’s a classic staple.
3. Navy is flattering on everyone.
Darker colors are slimming and navy blue is no exception. Plus, unlike black, navy blue isn’t too dark, so it can be worn during the day or in the evening.
4. Navy is easy (and fun) to accessorize.
It pairs well with dozens of color palettes and is easy to accessorize with shoes, jewelry, and purses.
Lovin’ on these blue accessories, too:
Plus, navy works extremely well for nautical or beach-themed weddings, too!
Tip: For a beach wedding, give your girls a themed gift — like a necklace featuring an anchor (this one is from Georgie Designs):
5. Groomsmen can coordinate easily.
Groomsmen can wear a suit in navy or gray and complement bridesmaids handsomely.
6. Navy plays friendly with dozens of color palettes.
This shade of blue is able to blend in well with many colors, making it an easy choice for a plethora of palettes. Navy and pink? Beautiful! Navy and orange? Gorgeous! Navy and yellow? Go blue! (I kid.) But seriously, pick a color and you’ll see how awesome it looks with navy.
7. It’s easy to mix and match.
If you’re letting bridesmaids pick their own dress in the same color, navy is the ultimate choice. A color such as pink or any shade of blue can be tricky to find matches, but navy? Navy is pretty much the same anywhere you go! Plus, many bridesmaids will already own a pair of navy heels.
8. Navy blue dresses can be the bride’s “something blue”.
It totally counts. Hey, another thing to cross off the list for Something Old, Something New!
9. Navy looks great in long or short length.
10. Navy blue is easy to find at ANY store.
Which means bridesmaids will have no problem finding a dress that works with their style (and budget).
