5 ways to style your wedding with dusty blue

Posted on March 21, 2016 by Samantha Costello | 0 comments

As the traditional bridal rhyme goes, everyone needs a little something blue on their wedding day and this dusty blue shade is a particular favourite of mine. I think it is classy and sophisticated and makes for a truly fabulous wedding colour scheme, as you can see in the moodboard above. As always, I've come up with 5 ways for you to incorporate this beautiful shade into your big day...

1. Groom's Attire

Your groom could wear a deep dusty blue suit, to compliment the colour scheme in a subtle way.

If he didn't want to wear a whole suit in dusty blue, he could opt for a dusty blue tie and matching pocket handkerchief.

2. Decorations and Accessories

This is a beautiful way to bring colour into your wedding. Using pops of dusty blue around your venue will have a coherent but subtle effect. Try incorporating colour via your chair covers and napkins. You could also add pops of dusty blue in the ribbon around your bouquet and make sure that your stationery has colour running through it.

3. Jewellery

Jewellery or hair pieces are a really lovely and sometimes sentimental way to incorporate your 'Something Blue' into your big day. My best friend bought me pretty blue hair clips to wear on my wedding day and you could only see the dainty blue colour when you were close to me but I knew they were there and they added a lovely personal touch to my wedding day.

4.Bridesmaid Dresses

Dusty blue is a flattering shade that looks lovely on most people, so it is a great choice for bridesmaids dresses. Bridesmaids dresses also add a perfect pop of colour to your big day and can either be exactly the same colour (for impact) or shades of dusty blue (for subtlety).

5. Flowers

Dusty blue flowers look absolutely exquisite in wedding bouquets. My favourite way to include this colour in your floral designs is with the following...

  1. Hydrangeas
  2. Succulents  
  3. Blue Hyacinths (these smell amazing too!)
  4. Blue Thistles
  5. Blue Iris
  6. Blue Orchids
