This timeless and enduring color is elegant in its simplicity, making it perfect for weddings this year. Classic blue, reflecting the serenity of the night sky, brings thoughts of stability and calm as you enter a new season of your life. This gorgeous color helps us re-center our thoughts with focus and resilience, a perfect symbol as you move into marriage together. 

Reasons to Choose Classic Blue for Weddings

As the saying goes, you’ll want to choose “something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue” to bring good luck for your wedding day. But how did these ideas begin? This Old English rhyme listed these items because something old connects you to the past while something new speaks to the optimism of the future. Something borrowed brings happiness, and something blue represents purity, love, and fidelity. This season, instead of finding a small bit of blue to tuck away somewhere, put it on display with Classic Blue in your wedding and give a deep, meaningful nod to tradition in a new way.

The color combinations that include Classic Blue are vast, giving you plenty of material to work with no matter what your style or personality. From untraditional and exotic to rustic, aquatic or sparkling, the possibilities are endless. Choose a palette that compliments your wedding’s style and highlights your meaningful day. Some great ways to include Classic Blue in your wedding can be with blue flowers, like thistle, hydrangea or iris. Feature these in your bouquets and centerpieces, or let them accent other blooms.

Blue shoes, blue dresses for your bridesmaids, and blue suits or bow ties for the groomsmen will make a strong impression and allow you to get creative with style and design. You can also choose Classic Blue table linens instead of white, or create multiple visual levels with blue stemware and candles. However you weave Classic Blue into your wedding day, you’re sure to enjoy the beauty of such a timeless classic.
