Blue is perhaps not the most obvious choice of colour for a wedding dress, but is certainly a shade to consider.
For the pure romantics, blue was worn by Queen Victoria on her wedding day to Prince Albert – a colour traditionally chosen as a symbol of purity. Pastel shades can offer a delicate alternative to traditional white or ivory, and look beautiful during spring and summer months. Bolder shades suit dramatic winter celebrations, while navy and midnight blue offer elegance without the heavy weight of black. It’s time to be inspired by these beautiful blue wedding dresses!
