Planning

Reason number 1 to choose navy bridesmaid dresses for your bride squad: everyone looks good in navy. Navy is a versatile and sophisticated colour that can just as easily compliment a winter wedding theme as well as making bright summer flowers pop against the rich, dark tones. While being a popular choice for traditional bridesmaid gowns, there are plenty of ways to style navy bridesmaid dresses that are ultra-chic, modern and fun too. For more general bridesmaid chat, check out our very first podcast episode delving into all things bride squad.

ADJUSTABLE NAVY BRIDESMAID DRESSES

We'll start with a classic, shall we? The beauty of an adjustable navy bridesmaid dress is that your bride squad all have the option to style their gown in a way that suits them, or makes them feel the most comfortable. If you're not going for full on mix and match gowns, this is a handy trick to get that differentiation while saving on choosing multiple dresses!

FLOOR-LENGTH BRIDESMAID DRESSES

There are SO many options when it comes to floor-length bridesmaid dresses. Do you choose delicate lace for added detail and texture, or a simple silhouette for effortless style? Decisions, decisions! We think a long navy bridesmaid dress will always look ultra sophisticated in every style from a form-fitting bodycon dress, to a flowing greek-goddess gown.

SHORT BRIDESMAID DRESSES

Short navy bridesmaid dresses are a great option for a summer wedding with a dark colour scheme, keeping your bride squad cool, calm and collected. One of the best things about a shorter gown is that your bridesmaids are free to strut about with ease and party into the night without risk of tripping over their skirt (depending on how many glasses of champagne they've had already, of course).

MIX AND MATCH BRIDESMAID DRESSES

If your best girls all have different tastes and styles, or are buying their own gowns, mix and match bridesmaid dresses are a great option to keep everyone happy. Conversely, maybe it's you that wants to mix things up. Dressing your bridesmaids in different styles adds some fun variety to your wedding snaps, and is a great get-out-of-jail-free card for brides who just can't decide which gown they like the best! It's totally up to you how many gowns you choose.

OFF THE SHOULDER BRIDESMAID DRESSES

Whether you're aiming for a funky vintage wedding theme or an elegant evening soiree, off the shoulder navy bridesmaid dresses come in a multitude of styles. They're great for accessorising with a shawl or dressing up with a necklace (perhaps one that you've gifted them all as a thank you present).

SPARKLY NAVY BRIDESMAID DRESSES

Lastly, but by no means least, we're BIG fans of sparkly navy bridesmaid dresses. Particularly for a winter wedding in the festive season! There's so many ways to go glam with a bridesmaid dress, whether you choose sequins, sparkles, velvet or beading. What better way to show that these girls are all the glittering jewels to your crown?
