Just a few short weeks ago, the temperatures were warm, the sun was bright, and the sky was almost always a dazzling shade of blue. Then those glorious days of summer started to fade into fall. Of course, it won’t be long before they return. Whether you’re having a summer wedding or you just want to celebrate those blue skies, choosing a blue color theme for your wedding is a great way to do that.
Blue Themed Wedding Invitations
When you’re choosing wedding invitations, remember to look for something that not only matches your theme but also the tone of the ceremony. For example, if you’re having a casual wedding with an outdoor barbecue for your reception, then the Colorful Stripes invitation might be a good choice. It’s fun, bright, and festive.
If you want something a little more simple and elegant, then you might consider the Blue Trimmed Damask or the Modern Branch Blue invitations. Both shade and style would look beautiful for semi-formal and even formal wedding invitations.
Adding Blue to Your Wedding
Blue is a beautiful color. And it comes in so many shades that you can easily find ways to incorporate the color in your festivities. Don’t forget if you believe in the old “Something borrowed something blue” rhyme you’ll need to find a way to add the color to the bridal wardrobe for good luck. Some brides choose to wear a blue garter, but that doesn’t have to be your only choice. A blue sash is a nice choice or sapphire jewelry (an even nicer touch!).
For your wedding decorations, you may feel limited in terms of flower selection. Most common wedding flowers, such as roses, don’t normally come in blue varieties. That doesn’t mean you can’t have flowers. Bluebells, forget-me-nots, and even some irises come in blue. However, many of these are a little pricey. A cheaper option is to buy white flowers and place them in blue vases or tie them with large blue bows.
Another way to add some blue to your decorations is with a lovely mural. You could hire an artist to paint a wall in the reception area or a linen sheet that could be hung over one of the walls. Blue linens look beautiful when paired with white or silver dinnerware on the tables. Plus, you can create simple but lovely centerpieces made up of blue candles in shallow bowls of water. If you can’t find any blue candles you like, use food coloring to dye the water blue and float white candles instead.
