Something Blue?

Something Blue?

Ideas to include the trendiest colour of the year (even if it’s not your colour!)

When I learnt that Pantone had released the colour of the year, I didn’t up tools and start mission blue 2020- ha!

However, they chose, what I thought – not the best blue. With so many shades available – there is a blue for everyone and even if you’re going with blush and rose gold – you too can be a bit of a trendy Wendy and add tones that won’t over-power the rest of your wedding palette.

Here are 5 ways I think you can add the ‘something blue’ without having to go full steam ahead…

  1. Table runners – almost-grey blue – A subtle hint that doesn’t take away from all the other gorgeousness AND if you’re sick of seeing white, a beautiful material with a soft shade can really lift a bog standard table to something extra
  2. Glassware – If you’re thinking of changing up your standard tableware, glasses can be a beautiful upgrade – why not hire a gorgeous set of off-blue wine glasses?
  3. Ribbon – just by using the lightest of blue ribbon for tying your bouquets, or on your chair decorations – not too much though!
  4. Flowers – just by asking your florist to add in an accent of blue into your floristry that matches your other colours adds a wonderfully whimsical look.
  5. Candles – just by adding dusky blue candles can make all the difference!



And for all you blue queens out there – I’ve created a blue and gold version of my Miami Invitation suite which looks super dooper awesome with the gold foil…
