Old Hollywood Glamour vibes? Check. This elegant and modern wedding at our Recommended venue, Elmore Court was completed by these 1930s style navy blue bridesmaid dresses. Olivia and Brian's wedding day was relaxed but sophisticated. It also included pretty, autumnal wedding bouquets, stationery from Papier, and a smoke bomb photoshoot to Mariah Carey's 'Fantasy'. There's nothing quite like a bit of Mariah Carey to get you feeling confident!

These navy blue bridesmaid dresses are show-stopping!

Brian, my mother, and I spent many hours on Rock My Wedding gleaning inspiration from other people's weddings! We used Recommended suppliers from Rock My Wedding's and Elmore Court's websites and checked out several suppliers on Instagram.

Navy Blue Bridesmaid Dresses

These 1930s style navy blue bridesmaid dresses (bought on sale), statement oversized vases and masses of candlelight are EVERYTHING! Olivia and Brian wanted an Old Hollywood Glamour theme for their wedding, so they stayed within the budget by supplying their own canapés and evening food and re-selling Olivia's stunning Vivienne Westwood dress! Those bridesmaid dresses made a star feature at the photoshoot, which quickly became a favourite moment of the day as everyone waved their smoke bombs and strutted to Mariah Carey's 'Fantasy'!


Olivia and Brian wanted to reflect the autumnal colours and golden light of the season in their styling. The florist helped bring this to life by adding antique blush and toffee garden roses to the bouquets. Extra details include leafy boughs, garden foliage and trailing seasonal fruits to the table decorations, which gave that extra something something. These enchanting neutral autumn vibes are perfect and are partly due to the amazing wedding venue with so much character! 

Smoke bomb photoshoots are a fab way of adding pops of bright colour into your wedding photos! 

Chatting to suppliers in person, on the phone, and virtually helped us choose people who understood the look we were going for whilst staying within budget!
