Best Blue Bits!

We've been obsessing over blue this week and while shuffling through our image library looking for delightful images we came across some that we had to share. We love these blue additions to weddings - no matter how small! 

Shoes!

Statement shoes are always a bit of fun, even if they're hidden underneath a full length dress, you know that you're wearing a bit of glam on your tootsies.

We love the mix in hues of these wedding shoes, the diamantes on the brides shoes are subtle but the speckle of blue helps to tie everything together.

The great thing about a statement shoe is that when you lift your skirts for some dancing, everyone can see what you've been hiding!
Stationery!

Beautifully delicate, the subtle wave of blue on these programs and the blue ribbon is a perfect fit for an elegant theme.

Cakes! 

UK-based Antoinette Patisserie
Cake pops with little blue flowers! Adorable, and an easy way to make sure everyone gets a serve.

Frosted Indulgence
The aqua tones on this cake are subdued by the stunning damask pattern.

Frosted Indulgence
Beautifully simple, the blue-grey base of this cake is offset by the delicately intricate white flowers. Yum!

Decorations!

Not really sure if we want our guests reading at our reception, but these cute blue books are a perfect match to this vintage camera and jarful of flowers.

Sterling Studios
The delicate touch of these little blue ribbons would tie a blue colour palette in nicely.

Flowers and Bouquets!

We LOVE this personalised bouquet made out of brooches and jewellery, the blue button bouquets for the bridesmaids ties in well too.

The stunning blue of these aisle florals is a standout feature, especially when sat against these white-white benches. Beautiful!

Just FYI for brides, if you're looking for some blue flowers for your decor or bouquet we love these varieties that can come in beautiful shades of blue: sweetpea, orchids, iris, hydrangeas, foxglove, agapanthis, forget me nots, delphinium and the lovely cornflower. There are, of course, loads more - just ask your florist

Transport!

Blue fans will love these blue transport options. The only question is Volkswagen or Mustang?

Favours!

A wedding playlist for your guests is a great idea for a favour. Great music and a way to remind your guests of your special day - we think the adorable minty-blue cover is adorable.

Men's Fashion!

Truly unique, this boutonniere is for the groom with distinctive style.

The One Day House
This image from The One Day House showcases a stunning blue suit - we love!

Something Blue...

This week is all about blue. Whether it's your accent colour, main colour, or just a little something to fit an old tradition, blue is a favourite for weddings. For the rest of the week we're going to share with you some styling ideas all the way from cakes to clothes. Today we're going to share some potential wedding colour palettes.

Icy cool and very chic, blue and grey cast a wintry glow on your nuptuals. Be sure to warm your ceremony and reception up with happiness and laughter (we don't think this will be hard!).

This ultra glam combo makes us think a little of Titanic and Rose's gorgeous sapphire pendant. Match with delicate florals to soften the darkness of the navy tone.

Concept & Styling: Invitation Station and Styled Events, Stationery: Invitation Station, Gowns: Living Silk, Hair and Makeup: Giulia Ponticello and hair stylist Sophie, Flowers: Wedding Flowers by Julia Rose, Photography: Stewart Ross Photography
Light, fun, and gorgeous. The seaside-inspired colours put a sparkle in the eye and when teamed with baby's breath looks nothing short of fabulous.
