We’re diving headfirst into a sea of blue hues to style your wedding! If you’re ready to make a splash and add a touch of blue style to your special day, let’s talk about how to inject some cool blues into your wedding celebration.

1. Sky’s the Limit with Blue Invitations

First impressions count, right? Kick off your blue-themed extravaganza right from the beginning by sending out invitations with hints of blue. Think gradients of ocean blues, soft pastel or ‘gelato’ blue colours, or even bold navy prints. Your guests will be hooked from the moment they open that envelope.

2. The Power of Blue Florals

Flowers are the heartbeat of any wedding, and when they’re dipped in shades of blue, magic happens. Opt for classic blue roses, hydrangeas, or even elegant delphiniums to create stunning bouquets and centerpieces. A hint of blue in your floral arrangements can turn an ordinary setting into a whimsical wonderland. Consider teaming with other pastel colours as injecting colour into your styling is very popular! From pastel blues, buttery yellows, and corals.

4. Table Styling

Elevate your dining experience with table settings that make a statement. Blue napkins, table runners, or candlestick holders can add that touch of finesse. Consider mixing different shades of blue to create a visually appealing and dynamic atmosphere. Sometimes it’s best just to choose 1 element to focus your colour pop on like a blue font on your place card or even a blue-toned water glass.

5. Whimsical Blue Lighting

If you want to go full ‘Blue Theme’ and dive head first into the palette then consider transforming your venue into a celestial paradise with the right lighting. String lights in cool blue tones or LED uplighting can create an otherworldly ambiance, perfect for a night of dancing and celebration. Imagine the dance floor bathed in a soft, blue glow – instant fairytale vibes!

6. Blue Velvet Touches

Velvet is having a moment, and what better way to incorporate it than with luxurious blue velvet touches? From bridesmaid dresses to table runners or a velvet vintage couch, velvet adds a regal and lush feel to your wedding not to mention a very textural vibe.

7. Sweet Indulgences in Blue

Let’s not forget the sweet stuff! A dessert table adorned with blue macarons, cupcakes, and a show-stopping blue-themed wedding cake is the perfect way to satisfy your sweet tooth and tie in your color scheme. Delicious and delightful – what more could you ask for?

Injecting blue hues into your decor isn’t just a color choice; it’s a commitment to creating something a little bit different but also a nod to ‘something blue’ sentimental feels. Be bold, and try blue!
