Today, we’re feeling blue…and we’re delighted about it.

From sultry midnight shades, to pretty powdery hues, blue is a great wedding colour. Not every bride wants to be pretty in pink, and blue is perhaps a little more edgy. It also looks lovely alongside pinks, metallic and greens if you feel like combining a few shades.

Invitations set the scene for your big day so, if you’re choosing blue, this is the place to start. And remember, a blue wedding invitation might even be your ‘Something Blue’… which is one wedding tradition ticked off the list straight away!

Let’s begin with the deepest shades and move through to pastels. At the top is the ‘Wildflower Crest’ design by Minted. The gold metallic adds elegance while the florals are pretty.

Of course, midnight blue makes us think of the sky and the stars, and it’s all rather romantic. Continue the star theme throughout your day with an abundance of fairy lights and sparklers.

Laser cutting is bang on trend and The Hummingbird Card Company are experts. We love their ‘Bicycle Made for Two’ design with midnight blue background.

There is nothing more traditional and elegant than Letterpress stationery – relief printing using a printing press. ‘Anna’ by Strawberry Sorbet is a lovely example, shown here with a classic blue floral design.
