Why Blue?

The colour has always been perceived as calming and serene, whilst it also symbolises loyalty, trust, and wisdom. It’s a classic choice for weddings and has been popular for centuries. In fact, the colour was once the most popular color for wedding dresses, as it was believed to represent purity and fidelity. While white has since taken over as the go to color for wedding gowns, blue remains a popular choice for bridesmaid dresses, flowers, and decor.

Incorporating Something Blue

There are many ways to incorporate something blue into your wedding, from subtle touches to bold statements. Here are a few ideas to get you started:

Flowers: One of the easiest ways to incorporate the colour into your wedding is through the flowers. There are plenty of beautiful flowers to choose from, such as hydrangeas, delphiniums, and forget-me-nots. You can use the flowers in bouquets, centerpieces, and even as hair accessories for the bride or bridesmaids.

Accessories: Another subtle way to incorporate blue is through accessories. The bride can wear earrings, a necklace, or hair accessory. The groom can wear a blue tie or pocket square. Bridesmaids can wear blue shoes or carry blue clutches.

Decor: If you want to make a bolder statement, consider incorporating blue into the decor. Tablecloths, napkins, and chair sashes can add a pop of color to the reception. Blue lighting can create a romantic atmosphere. Whilst vases and candle holders can add a touch of elegance.

Food and Drinks: Blue food and drinks can be a fun way to incorporate the color into your wedding. Blue cocktails can be served at the reception, and sweets or desserts can be offered as favors. Blueberries can be used as a garnish for cocktails or as part of the dessert table.

Attire: For a truly bold statement, consider incorporating blue into the attire. The bride can add blue accents to her dress, such as a blue sash or embroidery. The groom can wear a blue suit or shirt with his suit. Bridesmaids can wear blue dresses or skirts.
