You have your something borrowed, old and new, but if you’re looking for the perfect something blue, why not have your best friends fill the role? You might not have considered navy blue for your bridesmaids’ dresses, but this classic hue is taking center stage and we can’t get enough of the effortless elegance it exudes. Navy is traditionally a more timeless color, but that’s why we love seeing it utilized in modern celebrations. Whether you select a classic style or a trendy cut, navy is a simple way to add a feeling of formality to your bridal party’s aesthetic.

The best part is, navy is a color that’s been around forever, so there are plenty of style options depending on whatever you’re after. If your bridesmaids are looking for a navy staple to add to their wardrobe, it might be worth investing in a show-stopping gown. In this case, we recommend Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus, or Saks Fifth Avenue. And don't worry—you've got tons of options even if you're ballin' on a budget, too. Some of our favorite price-conscious places to shop include Azazie, Lulus, Birdy Grey, and ASOS. In fact, many sites are now catering to bridal crews that are looking for an easy, efficient, and inexpensive at-home experience. Azazie offers tons of budget-friendly options and allows you to virtually collaborate with your group, view color swatches, choose a style, and be sized—all at home! Are your bridesmaids (or even you) convinced that they'll never wear it again? We get that, too. Check out the styles from Rent the Runway.

Whether you want something slinky in satin or captivating in chiffon, here are some of our favorite navy blue bridal party dresses that your bridesmaids will beg you to select.

What to Look for in a Navy Blue Bridesmaid Dress

First things first, congrats—you've chosen your color! There's no doubt that navy is a timeless and universally flattering choice. Your bridesmaids will thank you! To ensure that your squad's navy dresses are a hit, it's important to consider the details of your wedding and the overall vibe you're going for. With fabric selection being equally significant as the shade chosen, begin by establishing the formality of your nuptials. For a casual, laid-back wedding on the beach or in a barn, opt for light and effortless materials like linen or chiffon. If you're hosting a black-tie affair in a ballroom or estate, velvets or satins will make for an ultra chic and lux navy look. But, before your bridesmaids hit "add to cart," be sure to double check that they're ordering the same shade of navy—especially if they're purchasing from different designers. Requesting a fabric swatch prior to purchasing is always a smart choice if it's possible! That doesn't mean your crew has to match either. For a modern, fashion-forward look, style your bridesmaids in coordinating shades, fabrics, styles, or textures. Ditch the traditional matching bridesmaid dresses for a palette that is fresh and eye-catching. The best part? Each bridesmaid can stand out in a subtle way and everyone has the opportunity to be satisfied with her dress.
