I have a navy dress to wear to a wedding in a few weeks. Similar to this
My dress has a bit more detail around the neckline, don't think a necklace would work.
I thought seeing as the dress is so dark some coloured accessories might work maybe turquoise or coral pink?
As for shoes could I wear some wedges with it, outdoor wedding so I thought wedges would be best.
Any advice will be appreciated. Thank you

I think either the turquoise or pink would make a nice contrast. Or orange or green. I would have a matching bracelet and bag.
Otherwise I would do a simple silver necklace and shoes.
I love that dress, where is it from?

I'd go something metallic, like a nice silver bracelet, silver necklace and silver shoes! Silver and navy look beautiful and elegant together! Maybe a silver clutch too?

Wow, that is class! Love the colour. The dress speaks for itself. Understated shoes and earrings with pastel pink flower in your hair.

Gorgeous dress, love love love navy.
I think you could go and choose some shoes in a style/price range that you like in just about any colour (obviously not black) and then find a clutch to match, some chunky bangles or a cuff, understated dangly earrings and that will do.
Honestly, in terms of colours with navy, depending on your skin and hair you could go with:
silver/gold/any metallic shoe
you get my drift.
Come back and let us know what you choose. Wish I had somewhere to wear a dress like that, I love it!

If you wanted to do a flower in your hair then maybe these shoes? + they seem pretty versatile and could be worn again with lots of other things.Floral Wedges
Nice pastel Wedge could work, they have purple too
Depending on how high you want the wedge, these are cheap too!! They have them in a burnt orange too which I think would look better with the navy dress
Mint High Wedge
If you want metallic I think something like this would go nicely with the dress as it is a pretty classic classy dress
God I love shoes! could look at them all day
Theres just too many lovely shoes
More wedges ... these guys deliver in a day (so my friend said!!!)
The Iconic - Wedges
I’d do a nice coloured clutch to match the shoes and then either a statement bracelet/cuff or earrings but not both.
Again the Iconic have some nice stuff or just go to Diva or something

Oh wow so many options now thank you, love some of the shoes. Now to narrow it doing to one pair
One more thing it could be cool at the reception, any thoughts on a jacket maybe a bolero or something that might work, or I can just be cold and look nice.
Thanks again for your help
