Find your perfect something blue with our top tips for this most versatile accent colour…
For the traditional amongst us, featuring something blue on our wedding day is a central part of the big-day ritual (as important as wearing a white dress say… or, you know, having a groom present…). From a colour-pop theme that sees your day dressed head to toe in a bold and beautiful shade of turquoise-blue, to subtler tones of a dusky baby-blue that merely highlights and accentuates certain features of your day, we share our favourite something blue touches…
Silver and blue go together beautifully. Why not choose your dress itself to showcase this beautiful colour? Catching the light for the ultimate shimmery shade of pale, we love this sensational gown for its Hollywood-glamour cut and style, and the way the light captures its perfect shade of silvery-blue.
Your wedding-day shoes afford the perfect opportunity to slip into a pair of sparkly blue statement heels. Be bold and beautiful in azure blue or soft and subtle in a pair of baby-blue satin shoes shot through with a hint of metallic shimmer.
Think Princess Kate and you too could have a fairytale sparkler! Why not add your something blue to your wedding-day jewellery with a bespoke and tailor-made wedding ring? Incorporate a family heirloom and you’ve got your ‘something old’ too (we’re nothing if not efficient!).
Working beautifully with creams, white and yellows, pick out a softer blue in your bouquet or big-day flowers (gorgeous in the boys’ lapels too!). Our favourites include sky-blue forget-me-nots and the rich, true-blue of the beautiful Himalayan Blue Poppy.
We love the gorgeous selection from Imagine DIY (imaginediy.co.uk) for their attention to detail in this magnificent colour! With everything from pastel blues to polka dots, including your something blue in your stationery is a seriously stylish way to go! We love this ‘bride at the beach’ feel with soft accents in baby-pink.
Dressing your best girls in the colour blue is both striking and sensational! Opt for different shades, cuts and styles for a more relaxed mix-and-match vibe, or how about this more structured, floor-sweeping gown from Candy Quinn?
The table decor
Dressing your tables in hints of blue looks fabulous and will keep up with tradition! A simple table runner speaks volumes, as does investing in simple yet effective decor such as blue-coloured table gems or blue-tinted votive tea-lights.
The fabulous guys!
Nothing says statement blue like a troupe of boys all in blue! Sharp and sophisticated, navy works well for winter weddings, and we love this rich, midnight-blue three-piece look on the boys!
The personalised touch
Adding your something blue could be as unique to you as embroidered thread sewn into your dress somewhere with the date of your big day and your initials… we love this idea!
