Blue is a powerful color and one of the primary colors on the color wheel. Blue ignites the imagination, calling to mind Cinderella’s wedding, the blue sky and the deep blue ocean. Colors that coordinate well with blue include yellow, red, white, violet, orange and green. Feelings associated with the color blue include calmness, serenity and tranquility. Read on to learn about blue wedding ideas.

Wedding Attire and Accessories

Wearing “something blue” is a classic wedding tradition for many brides on their wedding day. Not necessarily the wedding gown, the “something blue” may take the form of a garter, shoes, lingerie, hair bow, eye makeup or nail polish. Choose blue jewelry such as sapphire, turquoise, blue topaz or aquamarine. Dress your bridesmaid in several shades of blue gowns with the groomsmen in matching tuxedos, perhaps even paired with an Elvis tribute nod of blue suede shoes. Create a wedding bouquet of fabulous blue flowers such as hydrangeas, delphiniums, irises, thistles or bachelor’s buttons.

Wedding Date and Venue

For your wedding date, choose a blue moon, also known as the second full moon occurring within a month. Invite the Blue Angels to fly over your nuptials, although highly unlikely to accept your invitation consider an alternative such as obtaining the services of a patriot jet team to buzz over in synchronized formation above your wedding. Flood your nighttime venue in soft blue lights to create an impressive visual display. Decorate the pews or chairs of your wedding venue with blue ribbons. Beatify your wedding ceremony with blue floral arrangements and an elegant blue runner.

Wedding Reception

Go retro with your reception dance song list with blue inspired oldies but goodies such as Blue Moon, Blue Suede Shoes, Blue Monday, Blueberry Hill, Devil with the Blue Dress On, Blue Bayou and Mr. Blue Sky. Hand out blue colored favors, almost any favor will do as long as it is blue from favor bags to candles. Decorate your tables and chairs with blue tablecloths and seat covers. Create magnificent blue-hued centerpieces from such items as fresh cut flowers to ice sculptures. Be different, have a solid blue fondant wedding cake or embellish a white wedding cake with cheery blue ribbons and blue birds.

Stationary for Weddings

Select stationary for your wedding embellished with your favorite color of blue. Stationary items include the save-the-date-card, the official invitation, the reply card, wedding programs, menus and thank-you cards. Use a deep blue or navy for the ink.
