Blue Wedding Ideas You Should Steal From
There are so many blue wedding ideas to choose from! “Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue…” Apparently, blue theme wedding colors is popular for all seasons here in Michigan. Below are some blue wedding ideas from real weddings I’ve photographed. My hope is that you find some inspirations to prepare your own blue wedding!
Blue Wedding Color Palettes
To my surprise, many brides are not aware of this-but the first step in planning your wedding’s design is choosing your wedding colors. Why? Because the color scheme sets the tone of your wedding. The best wedding colors reflect the season, from romantic pink spring wedding to cozy burgundy winter wedding. Most importantly, your color palette speaks to your personality as a bride. This is also the reason why I offer to curate a bridal color palette for my brides as a part of their wedding experience. As some of you might notice, I’m obsessed with matching colors!
Main Shade, Neutral Hue and an Accent Color
So, how do you begin to choose? Ideally, your wedding palette should include a main shade, a neutral hue, and an accent color. In terms of a main shade, navy blue is the most common color for blue themed weddings. Then, you decide on your neural hue and accent colors based on the season. For a fall wedding, for example, this couple picked navy blue as their main shade, champagne as the neutral hue, and dusty pink as their accent color. Their choice of a blue wedding color palette was seamlessly incorporated through the bridesmaid dresses, bouquet, wedding car and more! Therefore, don’t forget to choose the color palette feels RIGHT for you to create a cohesive wedding theme like a pro!
Another quick and simple way to decide on a color scheme is by uploading your favorite wedding inspiration on Color Palette Generator by Canva. You can instantly narrow down the color scheme you like!
Of course, there are other ways to incorporate different shades of blue beautifully in your wedding. Here are some blue wedding ideas for you to add something blue throughout your wedding day!
