So hello and hey and hi and all that! How’s the weather where you are? Here in Charlotte, NC we got a whopping single inch of an icy snow mixture which has led to full on panic mode. I’m talking local schools are closed two days in a row, businesses are operating on limited schedules and of course the grocery store has empty shelves. I actually saw a local newscast yesterday where a field reporter showed us a bush that was frozen. Yup, a frozen bush. Hard hitting news folks…. Gotta love “snow” days in the south! What does this mean for me? I’m working from the couch and enjoying lots o’ food and wine. Sounds great, but after one day of it I’m sort of over it and ready to get back to the groove? (Meanwhile everyone from the Midwest and the Northeast wants to reach through their computer and punch me for saying this after only one day of winter weather…Sorry friends).
I promise this post is about more than how I’m sick of the weather. It’s about how I’ve got the BLUES….the wedding blues that is! One of my upcoming 2015 wedding’s color scheme is shades of blue and it’s made me realize how gorgeous the blues can be! Take a look at these gorge color combos and you’ll have the blues too!
Blue pairs surprisingly well with so many colors. This baby blue and gold inspiration board is perfect, isn’t it?
I’m loving this blueberry signature cocktail. A signature cocktail is a great way to personalize a wedding. People love fun cocktails (most obvious statement ever…).
I’m totally obsessed with this gray-blue bouquet with blue thistle.
Another way to incorporate blue into wedding flowers is through the vessels. These cobalt blue vases are amazing!
So are these jewel tone glass vases!
Blue and green pair really well together – like in this arrangement of blue hydrangea and one of my fave flowers, Bells of Ireland.
Here’s another stunning blue and gray arrangement – how gorge is this combination?
This silvery blue linen makes this table pop and is another way to incorporate blue to a wedding tablescape.
Navy is a super popular shade of blue for weddings and a is great alternative to black. If you’re having a preppy wedding, navy is a great color choice!
Can we talk about bridesmaids dresses? These long navy dresses topped with lace are freaking amazeballs.
I’m loving these varying shades of blue bridesmaids dresses.
Let’s not forget about the handsome dudes now! These navy and dark blue suits are great looking.
Let’s end on sweets shall we? I mean I’ve eaten like 57 million sweets over the past few days so it’s only fitting. I’m loving this white, blue and peachy color combo of this cake.
This is a more traditional cake with navy ribbon, perfect for a preppy, classic wedding!
This gold leaf accented cake with light blue flowers flocked by blue macarons is swoon-worthy…and I try not to use that word. But it is. Sa-woon.
It’s official – these blue wedding ideas are just gorgeous, plus you can check “something blue” off your list! Hope you’re staying warm out there!!
