Navy Blue Weddings

Navy Blue Wedding Moodboard

The 2017 wedding season is gathering pace so it’s time to start refreshing our mood boards and putting some new wedding ideas together. I’ve never considered navy blue as a run of the mill wedding colour, it’s a very strong and bold natural colour, although used sparingly can be beautifully effective.

It’s really very versatile in the colours it will compliment be it peach, grey, silver or even blush pink. Of course most of all, with it being such a striking colour it contrasts wonderfully with whites, creams and champagne colours of the brides wedding dress.

You can also create some beautiful and stylish effects by using nave blue laces on your tables, wedding invitations or even wedding cake without the richness of the blue becoming overpowering. Navy blue organza sashes are very nice addition to chair covers as well.

 

There’s plenty of naturally blue flowers that you can choose to suit a navy blue wedding theme, which can also be contrasted with in your bouquets or button holes. You can also go a little bit different with Navy Blue for the Groom and Best Man if you feel so inclined. As earlier suggested it’s a great contrasting colour with peaches, pink or even mint greens so as to not to become completely overtaken by blue, unless that’s what you want.

That’s the beauty of creating your own moodboard for your wedding planning, you can visualise much better how things will look and feel before seeing it all together on the big day. They’re also really useful to show various suppliers when you’re at the planning stage or going round wedding shows, you never know they might have suggestions you’ve never thought of!

Almost every wedding day has a theme or a colour scheme that runs through everything from the invites, the table decorations, the brides bouquet, and so on. Compiling your own mood board of all the ‘good ideas’ that you stumble across is a great starting point when it comes to planning your own wedding day, not only to build that picture in your own mind of how you want your day to look but also to show suppliers, friends and family who are there to help you plan your big day!

Bridesmaids dresses are a really significant part of your bridal parties attire and it can be quite a challenge to keep everyone happy in this department especially if you have 3, 4, or even 8 bridesmaids!

Cadbury purple can be quite an over powering colour when there is a lot of the same of it together, but it also helps it contrast well with lighter colours often associated with your wedding day, such as whites, ivories, pinks and greys. A bridal bouquet is nice touch for you to keep the cadbury purple theme alongside your wedding gown.

Table decorations are where you can really go to town, if you’re wanting lots of purple, or you can choose to be more subtle with a some scatter crytals to compliment your place names maybe?

Whichever route you decide, lots of deep and rich cadbury purple or more subtle smatterings it’s a beautiful colour and theme for a wedding day.
