  • Weddings & Invitations Inspired by Shades of Blue

    Something old, something new, something borrowed, and something new. Ever since the olden days when this tradition was integrated into our culture, there's been a fascination, where we've come to find new and creative ways to add a shade of blue into the day that two hearts unite in holy matrimony. From the wedding invitations, the bridesmaid's dresses, wedding flowers and unique surprise pops of blue on the day of the wedding, there's a whole range of unique design options and accents for a bride (and groom) to consider including into their wedding day when they want to honour it with something blue.

    Shades of Blue

    For your main source of inspiration, all you need to do is look at nature. Look to the skies (day or night), or take a look to the horizons over the seas to capture the beautiful glints of blues. This year Pantone has selected a few choice colours from the blue palette as wonderful choices for design. They include Classic Blue, Aquamarine,

    Grecian weddings inspired by Santorini, the sailing club and its perfect colour combinations of white, blue and a hint of red, to the soft hues of hydrangeas; you are well on your way to the perfect wedding look.

    You've got your colours; you've sorted out your wedding invitations, probably even the main showstopper - the wedding dress. Now it's time to get cracking on the blue wedding accents - what flowers will you be using, what decor items will reflect your shade of blue and more!  A great way to make an impression with your blue wedding colour scheme is to add linen into the game with table clothes for the dinner table and cocktail tables, to the napkin and seat covers/wraps setting the tone (literally).

    If you do not want to make blue apparent in your wedding design accents, you're able to find clever, unique and interesting choices to add it in. Lace navy garter belts, fun socks, and the inside of an all white cake being a blue velvet cake!  These will be so much fun and will make for great photographs too.

    For a modern bride who would like to step out of the traditional wedding dress mould, she could opt to find a wedding sequined dress that mimics the same look as the wedding invites. A thing to note is that to avoid going over the top and making your design flamboyant, you can use simplistic colours and design elements. For example, the wedding invitation design features white with black (or the colour of your choice). These colours can be used through the wedding in a balanced manner - black and white placemats and napkin bands, black and white flowers with shimmery ferns adornments to name a few options. A bow tie or skinny tie with a crisp Italian cut suit would be ideal for the Groom!
