Choosing the perfect colour scheme for your bridesmaids, and overall wedding, can be surprisingly more stressful than you’d expect.
We generally find that it’s a bit of a 50/50 split between whether bridesmaids dress colours are selected before suit colours, and vice versa.
And, with Navy being one of the more popular suit choices, we thought we’d share our thoughts on what colour bridesmaid dresses best match with these.
What Colour Bridesmaid Dresses Go With Navy Suits?
When it comes to pairing colours with navy, it’s important to remember that navy is a deep, rich shade of blue. This means that it generally pairs well with a variety of different colours, but works especially well with shades of pink, peach or yellow and even pale shades of green and purple.
You can choose a single complementary colour or mix and match several hues to create a more eclectic look.
Pink is a common and feminine choice that is perfect for a spring or summer wedding. Light pink shades such as blush or rose will pair beautifully with navy, creating a romantic and delicate look. Or, for a bolder and more dramatic statement, consider fuchsia or hot pink bridesmaid dresses.
Yellow is a bright and cheerful colour that is perfect for a sunny outdoor wedding. Light shades of yellow, such as lemon or buttercup, will create a fresh and cheerful vibe. Or for a more subdued look, consider a pale daffodil or even a soft primrose.
Green is a natural and organic colour that pairs well with navy, it gives a fresh and crisp look. Light shades of green, such as mint or sage will create a refreshing and natural look. Or for a more dramatic look, consider a deeper forest green or emerald.
Purple is a regal and sophisticated colour that is perfect for a formal wedding. Light shades of purple, such as lavender or lilac will create a romantic and ethereal look. Or, for a bolder and more dramatic statement, consider a deeper eggplant or aubergine.
How To Make Sure Accessories Match
Accessorising is the key to making sure that your bridesmaids look their absolute best. Well, in all honesty, we’re sure they already do.
A good way to match accessories is to use the same colour as the dress or a colour that complements it. Consider the type of wedding you are having, whether it’s formal or casual, as this will also help you decide on accessories. Have fun with the accessories, consider adding statement jewellery or matching shoes for a cohesive look.
For example, If the bridesmaids are wearing blush pink dresses, you can accessorise with blush pink earrings and bracelets. Or, you can also add a pop of colour by choosing a different shade of pink for the accessories. A floral crown for an outdoor wedding or a hair clip that matches the bridesmaid’s bouquet are also some fun options to add.
What Colour Bouquets Will Fit In Best?
The bouquet is a perfect way to tie in the colour scheme of the wedding.
A bouquet of flowers in the same colour as the bridesmaid dresses will create a cohesive look. For a more unique look, consider a bouquet with a mix of flowers in different shades of the same colour.
You can also opt for a bouquet of flowers in a contrasting colour that complements the bridesmaid dresses. This can be a great way to add a pop of colour to the overall look. Of course, be sure to consider the season and the location of the wedding, as this can help decide on the best option.
At the end of the day though, have fun and enjoy the process. Go with what you like the looks of, even if it might not necessarily be a common choice.
