Cute Navy Dresses Under $100

As I mentioned a few weeks ago, I’m trying to find more dresses under the price point of $100, since that seems to be the ideal budget for many of us. Navy is a staple of my wardrobe, and will be even more so since it has been named one of the hot colors for fall!  These navy dresses will work for bridesmaids, wedding guests, or just to wear to any of life’s events.  Navy is rarely out of place and is a great alternative to the little black dress. If the nine dresses above don’t quite fit the bill for you, I’ve collected a few more ideas.

my other finds:

Nordstrom has several great navy lace dresses under $100. This one by BB Dakota  is $88, and this one is only $49.99 by EnCreme, and this one by Marina for $99.

ASOS is another store where the styles are great and the prices are too! I’m a fan of this navy lace dress at ASOS, and this navy skater dress with lace inset.

Many of you know I love swiss dots, so this Swiss Dot Skater Dress at Forever 21 is a favorite! Another great store when you want sweetly retro dress styles at reasonable prices is Ruche, and the have plenty of Navy Dresses for less than $100 . As you can see there’s no shortage of fun navy dresses for the rest of summer and fall. Try several together for a mismatched bridesmaid look that will not only be timeless, but a cost-saving wear–it-again style and color!

Light Brown Bridesmaid Dress

If there’s one color I certainly haven’t featured enough in my style collages, it’s brown. In my own wardrobe I wear brown quite a bit–especially in fall–but I haven’t come across a brown dress with wedding-ready look that has inspired me. Until now! Meet the new luxurious shade and bridesmaid dress I’m smitten with:

Mocha soft brown bridesmaid dress

Dress: Georgette Keyhole Dress in Mink from Ann Taylor  | Earrings: Kara Ross Cluster Earrings |  Bracelet: Pave  Cabachon Bracelet by Ann Taylor | Bouquet: As seen on Project Wedding Photographed by Rebekah Westover Photography  Bouquet by Last Petal | Tie: Woven Silk Tie in Brown pattern by Canali at Nordstrom | Shoes:  Strappy Gold Sandals from Ann Taylor | Clutch:  Ivanka Trump Domed Minaudiere

Isn’t this dress the perfect hue of soft brown? I’m calling it mocha, because I love colors that are flavors, but Ann Taylor is calling this shade “Modern Mink” (definitely not a flavor — ha!). If you tell your bridesmaids: Hey, you’re all wearing brown, they might get the impression that you’re selecting a drab color, but that’s not the case with dress. It’s the color of a smooth hot chocolate and it’s a rich and timeless as any color, and will give elegance and refinement to any wedding party.  This warm tone is a great choice for fall and winter weddings, but because it balances so well with pastels like blue, green, and light blue, and cream, you may be able to have this work for spring weddings as well!

I tried to pick up a few colors with that blush and gold clutch, and a hint of blue in the groomsmen’s ties. This color also works so well with metallic shades like gold and bronze. I love this shade as a new neutral that has a little depth to it, there’s no fear of this soft color washing anyone out!  I know brown was a popular pick for weddings a few years ago, and I think I’m really ready for it to make a comeback. If you have me in your wedding, make my dress a mocha, please!

Flowy Wedding Dresses: darling by heidi elnora

Last week’s foray into beach wedding styles has brought about some looks for bridesmaids, but what about the bride? Today, I have a collection of flowy light wedding dresses for you that I’ve been meaning to share for quiet some time. The timing is perfect for not just for the beach wedding series, but also to announce some exciting news about Heidi Elnora, the designer of these gowns! So, for my beach brides–or just my brides who just want to the feeling of being beachily blissed out–I’m excited today to show you a new collection warmly called, darling by heidi elnora.  Enjoy this view of this sweetheart of a collection; and be sure to read more below about the surprise below!

Aren’t they lovely?  I swear wedding dresses really do have a bit of the personality of their designers, and so it follows that I like to work with bridal designers who are lovely and kind!If you want a fun sweetly free-spirited look, this collection is a perfect pick! I had the good fortune to meet Heidi a few years ago and Bridal Market, and I was immediately struck by her easy-going warmth. As a newbie at my first bridal market, she immediately welcomed me with a hug, and gave me a personal narrative of her thoughts while creating the dresses. Needless to day, I liked her immediately, and she left a wonderful impression! Since then it has been clear in my interactions with her stores and staff, that this is how she and her staff treat all her brides.

Okay, okay, by now you’re on edge of your seat for the surprise at the end of this post! (I  actually kind of hope you’ve heard the buzz about this news already!)  It’s my two of my favorite things combined: reality TV and wedding dresses! Heidi herself will be starring in a new show on TLC called Bride by Design. Tune in or set those DVRs for tomorrow on Friday, July 25th, at 10 PM Eastern/9 PM Central  to see it! From the preview, it’s my kind of show. I love seeing the brides and Heidi and her team work together to create the dress that fits a bride’s idea of her dream gown. Not only will you love watching these adventures in creating customized wedding dresses  fittings, alterations (and last-minute changes - oh my!), you’ll see that signature combination of sweet and fun creative energy I saw in Heidi too! Check out this preview, and you’ll see why I’m hooked already! Want more inspiration? Check out these other Heidi Elnora posts.

Navy Blue Wedding Ideas

It’s so easy to see why navy blue is such a popular color for weddings. It’s a classic, tasteful color that suits so many wedding events from the beach to black tie bashes.  There are so many great wedding items in this shade, that I could have filled 30 boards with fun navy blue wedding decor and attire details! But to keep things focused, I decided to pare it down to these 8 picks for everything from wedding invitations to navy blue shoes. And yes, there are plenty of details in my favorite patterns: navy dots and navy stripes!

Navy Blue Wedding Decor

Navy blue, like black and white, is one of those great wedding colors that can go with so many other shades (pink, coral, silver, gold, kelly green, and yellow to name a few)! I love to create these decor and attire layouts because I know with my own wedding planning, I spent a great deal of time sourcing items in my chosen wedding colors. I worried that favor boxes wouldn’t exactly match the napkins and silly things like that. In retrospect, I’d highly recommend not stressing about those issues. Instead, I hope seeing color options laid out like this makes the search a little easier and also gives you some ideas for how to incorporate your navy blue details in a fun way.

The trick with navy blue is sometimes just finding the right shade of navy since it can range from nearly black to nearly cobalt blue.  I haven’t seen all of these products in person to make sure they match exactly, but again, just strive for coordination, not perfection. No one will notice if your earrings don’t match the groomsmen’s ties, and if you stress too much over such details you’ll start hating your color choice and you’ll drive yourself crazy! Just focus on creating an overall cohesive look and picking details you love, and I promise it will all come together! You’re already on the right track if you’re picking a classic color like navy!

Coral Bridesmaid Dress

Continuing with some ideas for beach weddings, this coral bridesmaid dress is one of my top picks for destination weddings and beachside nuptials. Read more below to find out why!

Coral Dress for a Beach Wedding

I’m back from my mini-vacation at the beach, and while I didn’t get as many beach days as I’d like, I certainly had a few! I also didn’t get a chance to additional posts  in the beach bridesmaid dresses and beach wedding series; because I needed the relaxation and figured I’d come back recharged, which I did!

Last week, I shared this beach bridesmaid look in pale blue, and this week, coral is catching my eye. While this coral color is a great shade for a wedding in any setting, the peach and pink undertones of this color are simply fantastic for a beach wedding. The contrast of this orange tone against the blue sea and neutral sand is ideal, and really pops in pictures! This color is called Peach Fuzz, and it comes in many other styles and colors.  If a slightly more pinkish coral is what you’re after, I’d recommend this Honeysuckle shade. If you’d like a softer, lighter almost blush shell shade, try Chantilly. (Or mix all three for an ombre effect!)

Since I was styling this for the beach, I chose low heeled sandals, and some dazzling white and peach accessories which give that seashell feel to the look.  For the groomsmen, that peach skinny tie is a great choice! I also found this blue and orange linen tie which is very beachy indeed, but I just didn’t want to limit this to a coral and blue look.

The other reason this look is so perfect for the beach is the fabric of the dress ! My advice is always to pick the venue before you even think about the your bridesmaids will wear, because the setting really can dictate what look works.  Chiffon, cotton, and light gauzy jersey materials are light and ideal for the beach; heavy thick satins or non-breathable synthetics are not!  If you’re planning a beach or destination wedding, plan on a dress that will hold up to sun, ocean mist, humidity, and sand all the other fun the beach can bring!  Until next time, my wedding beach babes!
