Blue Wedding Ideas

Does a blue wedding sounds like the right color choice for you? You're not alone!  Across countries and cultures roughly 1 in 4 people call it their favorite. Coming in 260 hues for the deepest navy to the most delicate pastel, and fulfilling the old good luck charm “something borrowed, something blue” it is no wonder blue figures so prominently in wedding design. 

If you think blue is beautiful and want to add it to your wedding fashion and decor, here are a dozen stylish blue wedding ideas that might help you make your decision.

1. Start with the groom’s attire. A blue suit always looks sharp on a man and brighter shades can make a fun fashion statement.

4. Look for gorgeous gowns for the women in your wedding party. No doubt you’ll find them in almost every shade and style. You can choose dresses that match, or ask your gals to wear their own favorite blue dresses. The great thing about blue is the shades rarely clash and multiple hues can look stunning together.
