Looking for a versatile, chic and unique wedding theme? Beautiful blue has it all. From pale pastel shades to vibrant turquoises, right through to midnight blue, you’ll have plenty of choice for your wedding theme. And the best part? Blue is a relatively underused when it comes to wedding themes, so your big-day is bound to stand out from the crowd too!
Royal blue beauty
Every single shade of blue creates a memorable and unique atmosphere, so let your heart choose a blue palette that reflects your personality. One of our favourite shades here at Country House Wedding Venues has to be royal blue though. It’s wonderfully chic and sophisticated. A royal blue wedding is a gem to style too and very hard to get wrong.
Start off by dressing your bridal party in deep blue gowns and get your groom to finish off his look with a shimmering deep blue tie or cravat. When it comes to your dress, think modern vintage glamour and elegance – something sleek and lacy looks lovely and ties in perfectly with the stunning blue theme. If you’d like to inject a bit of fun into your look, you could finish your attire off with royal blue shoes, hidden underneath your gorgeous gown.
Keep your bouquet fairly natural and stick to shades of white with a touch of blue and green for this particular theme. As the royal blue look is all about elegance, you don’t want to go over the top with an array of shaded blue blooms. You can add a modern touch to your bouquet with ribbon streamers too – dark blue ribbons work best but feel free to play around with muted colours.
So, what about your reception décor ? You’ve guessed it, modern simplicity works again here. Stick with traditional floral centerpieces and add blue tablecloths to your dining tables. If you can get hold of blue seat pads for your chairs or silk or velvet bows, these too will complement the look.
The finishing touches that bring the whole look together can be found in those little extras like your wedding cake. We’d recommend a modern touch on the classic – opting for a square tiered white cake decorated with royal blue modern style chevrons.
There’s something really tranquil and enchanted about the colour blue isn’t there? It has the ability to create a playful, quaint and offbeat atmosphere that can captivate all your wedding guests.
To create your whimsical wonderland you’ll need to select two or three shades of blue and style your look and venue accordingly. If you’re daring enough, you could even opt for a romantic tulle pale blue dress ! We also love the idea of flower girls dressed in ballerina style dresses complete with tutus to complement your blue colour palette. Together your outfits will help to create that quirky, enchanted look you’re after.
When it comes to dressing your venue , go for unique décor rather than classic touches. Mismatched blue glass vases with stems of blue and purple blooms work well as your table centerpieces, and a gorgeous blue table runner can add that finishing touch. You can also add features like paper cranes, lanterns or pom poms to your ceremony space or reception area to create that playful blue wonderland.
Of course, the look wouldn’t be complete without some quirky extras . How about serving up berry cocktails to your guests and blue vodka ice lollies during your evening reception? Yum!
If you’re looking to add a charming finishing touch to your true blue wedding theme, why not complement the look with touches of silver? Most shades of blue work with silver – from the baby blue and silver vintage look, the ice blue and silver festive look to our all time favourite, midnight blue and silver.
For this look, why not opt for a brooch bouquet ? It’s one of the best ways to combine the two colours, plus the bouquet will make a wonderful keepsake after your big-day. You can also add some extra dazzle with silver and blue jewellery such as beautiful drop jewel earrings.
When it comes to your wedding tables , why not feature some silver sequins? You can go all out with a full silver sequin tablecloth, or for a more subtle look choose silver runners. If you’ve chosen blue sequin or linen tablecloths you could accessorise with a silver menu or cutlery pocket. Blue or silver bows for the back of your chairs add the finishing touch to your reception décor.
The theme can also be reflected in a chic and glam tiered wedding cake in your chosen blue shade with an accent of silver. Only thing is, it might just look a little too good to eat!
