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.
Taking notes from the book of colours, you can also draw inspiration elsewhere from the likes of cultures, hobbies and more. Mixing the delightful and striking colours and mixing them with complementing hues, to adding illustrations to hone in your design and style theme, your wedding invitations will be your spokesperson of what the bid day will reveal. Here are some choice designs of blue wedding invitations!
On the Day Styles of Blue
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).
Unique Blue Wedding Accents
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.
