Wedding Inspiration: Something Blue

If there is one trend from the Fall/Winter 2014 collections at last month’s London Fashion Week that we think would be hot in the bridal world, it is royal blue. After all, there is never a more auspicious trend, as the old tradition of having brides bring something blue with them at their weddings was to ensure that she carries good luck with her! We’ve rounded up some inspiration of how you can use blue in your wedding to give you some ideas!

The Flowers

The ever popular hydrangeas would be our top choice for a refreshing touch of blue to your floral arrangements. Alternatively, you could consider blooms like cornflowers or delphiniums for extra variety. Blue flowers go best with complementary shades like peach, coral, yellow and white, and are perfect for a warm tropical wedding that is so apt for Singapore!

The Dress

Blue is not a shade we see brides opting for every day, and we absolutely love how delicate they can be, when crafted in the right fabrics! We love the following creations from Ellie Saab and Hamda Al Fahim (photos from here and here respectively) for their romanticism and details such as lace motifs and beading that bring that touch of wedding magic.

For the bridesmaids, instead of going matchy-matchy on another shade of blue, we love the idea of mixing in pastel vintage floral prints, which helps to set off the blue perfectly!

The Invites

We absolutely love this set of classy letterpress invite cards that cleverly uses touches of blue to accentuate the patterns on the invite, which creates interest while maintaining an elegant and understated style.

These two invites are perfect examples of how couples have used complementary colours such as yellow to accentuate blue. The top design is a playful, summery design that is perfect for casual lunch weddings, or outdoor and garden weddings. The bottom design, which is a playful interpretation using the venn diagram, is suitable for quirky and creative couples who love coming up something different for their weddings.

The Favours

And just so your guests will walk away with a piece of blue from your wedding, these wedding favour ideas are not only pretty (in looks), they’re pretty practical too!
