Wedding Ideas By Colour: True Blue

Whatever you choice of colour, we hope to inspire you with some of these ‘true blue’ ideas.

The most stunning weddings are often led by a colour scheme, whether it’s delicate pink and white or a more dramatic orange and red. Blue, however, is a wonderful choice; from delicate shades of powder blue through to royal blue and on to midnight hues. It works well with metallic for a more decadent style, and also with softer pastel shades. Whatever you choice of colour, we hope to inspire you with some of these ‘true blue’ ideas.

1. Let’s start at the beginning with stunning blue dresses. This delicate shade of blue is perfect for a countryside or seaside wedding.

4. If you’d prefer to wear white, why not choose a blue wedding shoe, showing a splash of colour when you walk. We love these stylish polka dot shoes by Kate Spade, and you’re certain to wear them again after the big day.

6. Accessories give you a great opportunity to add a splash of blue to your look. Of course, we wouldn’t say no to a sapphire, but we’d be just as happy with some lovely crystal earrings.

8. Your cake is a blank canvas, giving you the ideal opportunity to inject your chosen colour. This delicate blue works well with a more traditional style, adorned with sugar flowers in equally delicate colours.

17. Bridesmaids wearing a deeper shade of blue can choose to carry white flowers or something a little more dramatic. Here, we love the vibrance of the sunflowers, adding a splash of yellow to the daytime ceremony. As the sun goes down, the girls might choose to wear silver shoes or accessories to create an evening look.

19. Simple is often the most effective. Fill pretty blue bottles with gypsophila and hang from your chairs as the most eye-catching of pew ends.

23. And finally… for glamour, simply add gold. Here, a rich hue of royal blue is set cleverly among gold, green and ivory. Pops of colour come through the flowers, water glasses and table linen, creating a magnificent effect.
