When Tyler and Alessandra chose Dusty Blue & Navy for their wedding colors and theme, they knew what they were doing. They were creating their own unique take on the long, time-honored tradition of a blue wedding.
Blue has always been a top choice for bridesmaid attire and weddings because it symbolizes love and fidelity, two key ingredients needed for a couple to start a new life together. Get inspired with all the details on Tyler and Alessandra's Dusty Blue & Navy Wedding below.
A True Blue Wedding Ceremony
Staying faithful: a wedding cross draped in Dusty Blue & Navy
We have to commend Tyler and Alessandra on incorporating their unique love into every aspect of their wedding theme. Dedicated to their mutual faith, the couple went with a cross instead of the more traditional arch, along with our Wedding Arch Drapes in Blue & Navy.
Made of high-quality wrinkle-free material that isn't completely opaque, these drapes are heavier-weight fabric, much more flowing, and graceful than tulle, nylon, or other commonly used wedding arch fabrics.
The Dusty Blue & Navy Welcome sign
Regarding floral welcome signs, there are near infinite ways you can inject your personality and show off your unique love with your greeting message. Some lovers include a dating timeline, some include nicknames, and some have portraits of the happy pair. For their wedding, Tyler and Alessandra put their most faithful foot forward.

“Together is our favorite place to be,” reads the sign sitting lovingly next to a cross with Joshua 24:15. It proudly states, “As for me and my house, we shall serve the Lord.”
For such devoted partners who bring their faith into everything they do, we can't think of a better way to greet wedding guests.
A Wedding Reception in Tones of Dusty Blue
Memories made in blue: beautiful collages
Collages of greenery, with little pops of the Dusty Blue wedding colors, are laid out with lovely pieces of nostalgia. Wedding rings and bridal jewelry sit elegantly beside the wedding invitation and save-the-date. These beautiful aesthetic compositions make for unique photos in the couple's wedding album!
Besides each other, Tyler and Alessandra both love dogs! From matching (blue!) dog socks to an actual golden retriever, the couple celebrated their mutual love of canines on their big day. Small, memorable touches like this are a part of what makes each wedding unique, even when using classic colors such as Dusty Blue.
Center stage: a Dusty Blue Head Table
At any wedding reception, the head table is where the newlyweds sit, usually front and center for all the guests to see.
Luxurious and dappled in blues, Tyler and Alessandra's Dusty Blue flower garland captured everyone's eyes. Handmade with love, about 20 silk and foam flowers and a few silk leaf garlands comprised the arrangement, a floral piece the happy couple will have for the rest of their lives.
The flowers can be repurposed as a centerpiece for anniversary celebrations, wreathes, or anything else that requires a touch of floral romance for years to come. Faux flowers are also completely pet-safe, essential for dog lovers like Tyler and Alessandra!
Primary flowers in the Dusty Blue & Navy Centerpiece include peony and semi-cactus dahlia. Rose, avalanche rose, Vendela rose, poppy, gardenia, Desmanthus, air plant, and wisteria. They all blend seamlessly with the eucalyptus to create this romantic wedding element.
Your seat awaits
Keeping with the Dusty Blue & Navy wedding colors, a handsome Navy Blue board directs wedding guests to their seats. Simple square parchment paper is strung along a dainty gold wire, each with a table number and list of table guests. This unique directory helps everyone know where to go and eliminates the need for individual seating cards.
Assorted floral Centerpieces in Dusty Blue & Navy
The key to success in any floral arrangement is attention to detail. These Floral Centerpieces in Dusty Blue & Navy have been planned out by the inch, leaving no detail overlooked. Bits of delicate flowers, filler blooms, and enticing foliage add depth and layers to the reception tables.
The perfect blend of our lovely foam and silk flowers, pops of greenery, and supportive filler flowers, these Dusty Blue & Navy Blue centerpieces brought life to the table. Austin rose, Ipomoea, hydrangea, and pearl pick accent the head table for a soft and romantic finish. Made of paper and powder stone material, the centerpieces come with earth paper vases, keeping them close to their natural roots and remaining environmentally friendly.
Blooming Dusty Blue: the Bridal Flowers
Marriage of colors in the bridal bouquet
Alessandra's wedding Bridal Bouquet in Dusty Blue was so lovely, bridesmaids had more than one reason to try to catch it!
For this floral creation, shades of blues and warm neutrals marry together to create a dreamy and refreshing bouquet. Soft whites and light creams show off the Dusty Blue silk and foam flowers. Tucked proudly underneath, the navy flowers serve as the backdrop for the bridal bouquet, tying everything together.
Bridesmaids in every shade of blue
Alessandra's bridesmaids glowed –- but not with gold. The ladies wore a gradient spectrum of blues, from light sparkling baby blues to oceanic shades of navy. Bridesmaid bouquets in Romantic Dusty Blue matched perfectly with every shade of dress. The hues subtly reflected Alessandra's bouquet's colors, adding to the overall Dusty Blue wedding theme.
Noble Navy Blue boutonnieres
A boutonniere is a small collection of flowers typically worn by men for formal occasions. At Tyler and Alessandra's ceremony, the groom, groomsmen, and father of the bride all proudly wore sophisticated boutonnieres in Noble Navy Blue. The boutonnieres were elegant and refined, made of authentic-looking navy blue foam roses dotted with delicate leaves, flowers, and greenery.
Silk Rose Petals in Dusty Blue & Navy
Is there a more fitting wedding flower than the rose? We think not.
Roses have historically been used to symbolize romantic love, marriage, affection, and passion almost everywhere in the world. Tyler and Alessandra used our handmade silk Rose Petals in Dusty Blue & Navy, a nod to both their love and their wedding colors. The petal's satin/organza fabric carries a light floral scent for added atmosphere. Since they will never wilt and are reusable for anniversaries and other special events, the silk flowers will last forever, just like the happy couple's love.
