As far as we're concerned, navy blue can do no wrong! It's perfect for every season, for every occasion and, if you can't tell, we'd like to see more of it! We did a quick round up of some of our fave navy inspo for you! From bow ties, to cocktail napkins to wedding party attire...we're digging the deep hue! 

We all know the old adage "Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue." It's a tradition that many of couples embrace, but what if your "something blue" was a beautiful bow tie? Or these gold foil cocktail napkins? There is an endless number of ways that to incorporate this shade into any soirée! These are just a few of our faves! Want more blue inspiration in your life?!

How To Make Your Wedding Day Your Own

This post is brought to you by the wonderful, Jenn Bean. She is the owner of Marry Me Ceremonies, a wedding officiating service. Jenn is serving up some great ideas about how to personalize your ceremony so that it feels uniquely you! Often couples get so lost in the details of weddings that they see online or in magazines that they forget to make their fête a reflection of them and their own relationship!

Here is what Jenn has to say...

Your wedding celebration should reflect your style as a couple. Little details are easy and fun ways to express yourselves and personalize your big day. Here are some of my favorites, I hope you are inspired!

1. Serve a signature cocktail. This is a great way to simplify the bar and cut down on costs.  Some drinks can easily be made non-alcoholic for all to enjoy! The best part, guests will think of you whenever and wherever they order your special drink.  

2. Create your own logo to use throughout the wedding process: save the dates, invitations, table tops, thank you cards, etc. It won't cost that much more to have personalized stationery printed at the same time to use for years to come!  

3. Are you musical or know someone who is? Ask them to perform a song during the ceremony, reception, or better yet for your first dance!  

4. Have fun with favors! Think about what reflects you as a couple. Do you love the outdoors? Have seed packets for guests to plant in the spring. The flowers will remind them of you and the joy of love while they bloom. Are you a foodie? Serve your favorite treats at the wedding or wrap individual portions of local treats for your guests to enjoy. This is especially nice when guests are traveling! Make it a family affair and have loved ones bake their signature cookies along with printed recipes to take home in individual gift bags. 

5. Be bold! One of the most memorable things I have experienced in 75+ weddings was a couple who created individual quests€ for each of their guests to accomplish during the reception. You can simplify this idea by putting cards on the tables with suggestions such as taking a photo of people at another table or asking someone they don'€™t know to dance.

This is really what it's all about for us. We love everything we do, but the core of H&H Weddings is just that, weddings. It's about committing to life together, to grow together, to support each other, no matter who you are or what your relationship looks like. We narrowed it down to six weddings that topped the charts for us! (It was a grueling process, trust us!)

Jeff and Chris nailed the beach wedding. Their palette matched the hues of the setting sun, their suits were totally on point and they were barefoot! Thompson Photography Group perfectly captured the chic Fire Island soirée! 

These Denver Brides rocked our world, thanks to Cassie Rosch. They had plenty of beautiful details, but, mostly, their love was palpable and we couldn't get enough.

All gold everything. Need we say more about Chrissy & Lindsey's Providence wedding? As usual, Todd Wilson Images had us drooling! 

Honestly? We might have squealed when Miranda & Trish sent us images of Chelsea & Chelsea's nuptials. Can you blame us?

But like...how cute are these brides?! Lisa Stone Photography brought so many smiles to our faces with Ja'Nina & Whiteé's wedding!

We're always wary of anything "classic" or "traditional," but Chris & Lawrence knocked our socks off. Can we talk about those tuxes?! We're suckers for a good NYC wedding and Sarah Tew Photography reminded us why!

Styled shoots are hard! How do you create something that is unique in an industry inundated with imagery? We think these shoots do a damn good job of giving us some serious inspo! 

Christina Karst Photography sent us this gem and we instantly fell in love! It's modern, industrial meets organic. What more could you ask for?

We adore industrial settings, there are so many opportunities to create whatever look and feel you want, which is why we were especially obsessed with this Industrial Bacon Styled Shoot that Cadence & Eli Photography sent our way. The color palette is divine and there are SO MANY stunning details! 

We miiiight be a little biased, but how good is this Barbie & Ken(dra) shoot that we helped style? A hot pink suit?! C'mon!

We love love shoots. It's easy to see why with these gorgeous shoots that we featured over the course of 2016!

Brian & Cameron's love shoot proves that Paris truly is never a bad idea. Ben & Hope Photography made our little hearts go pitter patter with these babes. 

Mountains + open fields + Cassie & Lynn = SO. MUCH. LOVE. 

Hillary & Becca might just be the sweetest duo of all time. We can't get over how many total swoon-worthy moments KMitiska Photography caught on camera!
