1. Dusty Blue, White and Green

Nothing says classic more than the duo of dusty blue and white. Add in a soft green to enhance the natural beauty of a garden wedding. The palette is perfectly suited to early summer soirées.  

To start with, keep the invitations simple. An earthy-colored seating chart introduced guests to the light-hearted reception. Blend soft wheat-toned chairs in with the natural landscape. Grace each place setting with dusty blue napkins and opt for white florals with lush greenery to make full arrangements.

We adore the idea of accessorizing your bridal look with a flower crown of poppies or anemones or styling a single blue bloom in a lose updo as your lucky charm. 

2. Midnight Blue and Gold metallic

"Fly me to the moon and let me play among the stars..." There's always something romantic about the galaxy. To bring the feeling to life, look to the pairing of deepest indigo blue and metallic gold.

For a modern take on the traditional style? Utilize midnight blue into wedding invitations with metallic calligraphy and gilded plates. Accenting the aisle markers with midnight blue ribbons. For brides and grooms that desire a rich colorscape, this look could be the perfect choice. 

3. French Blue, Ivory and Greenery  

Keep things serene, airy, and elegant? Team the duo of french blue and ivory with sage green as a third color. Incorporate the softest shade of blue and natural ivory into your bid day details, like arch drapery, sweetheart table floral arrangement, bridesmaid dresses, airy invitations and table linens.

Blend an ivory table runner, light blue napkins and candlelights to bring an extra dose of charm to your wedding! These shades feel reminiscent of a love letter: delicate and heartfelt. 

4. Ocean Blue and Teal 

Envisioning a casual-chic beach wedding? The breezy pair of teal and slate blue is for you!

Let ocean blue and teal green show up in big and small ways: work the calming shades into your bouquets, ribbons and invitations. Jazz up the cake with splashes of teal decorations and featured flowers. How to catch the eye in this breezy tablescape? The teal linens is a must. A slate blue ribbon"ties" the place setting together and subtly echoes the sage green plate below.
