If you’re planning a blue wedding, here is a post for you! Lots of inspiration for your special day, with more on my Pinterest board.
Navy blue wedding
Usually traditional in spirit, your navy blue wedding is sure to be beautiful! This color plays well with all metallics and works in all seasons. The options are endless!
When it comes to floral, I love using navy in the ribbon for your bouquet:
There’s nothing sexier than a well-dressed groom! I may be a smidge biased, but my husband looked damn good in his midnight blue tuxedo on our wedding day.
For your invitations, it can be a great idea to keep navy as your main text color. Here, my client chose navy ink, printed in letterpress, for their personalization of “The Aviva” invitation in my semi-custom collection. They paired it with a charcoal grey belly band, dusty blue envelope liner, and pale grey envelope. They also opted to upgrade to add the Hebrew elements. With this combination, the invitation felt ultra luxe, and it served as a true preview of what was in store for loved ones at their blue wedding.
Dusty blue wedding
Dusty blue weddings are all the rage right now! You can capitalize on this trendsetting color palette without locking yourself into a “time stamped” event.
Adding in succulents to your bouquet can be a great way to incorporate this color in a subtle fashion, even as an accent.
It’s obvious that bridesmaids look fantastic in dusty blue, but you can handle this attire choice in a couple of different ways: either all in the same color as one another, or in varying shades of blue. Both are beautiful!
Also, I’m just totally obsessed with this cake:
For your invitations, it’s great to incorporate dusty blue as an accent, or as the main event. Here, Maggie and Danny opted to have the text of their blue wedding invitation be the dusty shade, with a background of blue and grey watercolor abstract. This was a personalization from “The Dominique” invitation in my semi-custom collection, with a cool blue envelope and dusty blue text letterpress printed. They added in a digitally printed details card and they upgraded to include this watercolor element.
Barely there blue wedding
If you’re planning a wedding with blue as your accent color, then fear not! There are lots of beautiful ways to incorporate this versatile color, in delicate, barely-there touches.
In your florals, it’s a beautiful idea to incorporate a grey-blue ribbon into your otherwise monochromatic bouquet:
In terms of attire, I’ve seen some brides have their only blue element be their gown. This is a bit more of a non-traditional approach to dresses, but it’s a show-stopper every time. If you’re on the fence about it, consider this my vote for “yes, go for it!”
If you want to incorporate blue in your invitations as an accent, you can accomplish this through small details. Shown here include blue in the edge painting, envelope liner, and vintage postage.
These were all custom options and I’d love to help incorporate your details in a meaningful way as part of your blue wedding, too!I want a custom wedding invitation
