Navy is my favourite colour for a beach wedding. Navy trousers for the gents is very suitable and not as formal as black. Best suited colours for a suit on a beach is white to sand linen chino’s, navy, sea green or grey.
Black is very harsh and too formal for any beach wedding.
Navy could be used with burlap, wood, white wash items and rustic driftwood.
The best flowers for this area is King protea, Cardinal or Sylvia protea and pin cushions. The navy is a great contrast with this.
If you look at a mussel shell, you will find the navy and shimmer tones of grey and pearl, which works ideal with the colours of sand. Add drama with tuille, velvet, red roses, large King Protea, lace, the impact is less is more but the elements can be daring. Navy goes well with most other colours like pink and red, white and cream, even yellow and peach or lime green and lilac to deep purple.
