We all know that every wedding needs something blue, but if a little something blue is lucky, then a lot of something blue is… well, gorgeous! Winter wedding season is here, and there is just something about a touch of blue that gives that icy winter touch to your winter wedding décor. Blue is a major trending tone in 2020, so why not add it to your winter 2020 wedding color palette? Adding shades of blue to your wedding vision can be as understated or extravagant as you’d like. Blue is an essentially earthy color, with the sky as our greatest reference point, and it mixes so beautifully with so many other colors. From delicate blue flowers in your wedding florals to blue velvet suits on the groomsmen, you do you, with blue.
Blue Wedding Fashion
According to the trend predictions for 2020, blue suiting may very well outpace black for tuxedos and wedding suits this year. If it’s up your alley, why not dress your groomsmen and groom in blue? It’s a fun, fresh take on tuxedo options, and with so many gorgeous hues available, your sure to find a look that coordinates beautifully with your winter wedding style. Or, let your wedding dress be the ultimate blue focal point with a dress.
Blue Wedding Flowers
One gorgeous way to integrate shades of blue in your winter wedding is with flowers. From wedding bouquets to reception centerpieces, wedding entry arches to floral walls, you can go SO big with blue flowers, or you can totally opt for something more understated. Check with your florist about which blue flowers are in season during the winter, and, better yet, have them give you some options to choose from. Their expertise will help you hone the look you’re curating for your winter wedding day.
Blue Signature Cocktails
Why settle for basic cocktails when you can infuse your bar offerings with some shades of blue? Consult a mixologist to create a fresh, wintery, and oh, so blue, cocktail option at your reception bar, or try your hand at some of the recipes online. Adding earthy details like fresh herbs and blueberries gives a blue accent to your delicious cocktail offerings. As you gaze out at your reception crowd, you’ll love the way your blue-accented signature cocktails add to your shades of blue colorway. Of course, accenting your cocktails with custom printed cocktail napkins is a fab idea!
Blue Darling Details
On your wedding day, the attention you gave to the small details may very well be what leaves the biggest impression with your beloved guests. As you consider bathroom amenities, the ribbon you’ll use for hanging signs, which striped paper straws to choose or even the tissue paper color in your wedding welcome bags, all of these small details can be coordinated in shades of blue!
