Blue is one of those colors that just does not say “cheap.” And if you’re going to be married, it just should not be any different. When you plan your wedding, you want to make sure that there is something special for you and your future husband that you both love. However, finding that something can be challenging. To save money on all of your wedding planning needs, here are some helpful wedding planning tips on how to plan for something blue.
A great way to save money on a wedding favor or something blue is to simply take something that is common, but still appropriate and put it in a new color. There are lots of beautiful, inexpensive yet elegant something blue ideas to see in stores. Plus, when you consider it, the color blue is a part of our old stand bys, something old that’s been passed down through the generations. One popular idea is to make a bouquet of blooming flowers in a deep, rich color. Your bridesmaids will probably absolutely love this bouquet, especially if it includes lots of delicate orchids or roses.
If you want something blue for your wedding color, another idea is to have the bride wear a soft blue gown with a wide sash in a rich color. The bridesmaids could also wear some fitted tea length dresses in a lovely shade of sky blue. Having the bridesmaids all in a soothing, serene color like sky blue can give the bride a feeling of peace and calm before her wedding.
If the sky is the limit for your wedding color scheme, there are lots of elegant, unique something blue ideas for wedding dresses. You may choose to have your wedding dress in a light blue or even opt for an electric blue. To make your wedding dress truly something blue, however, you need several more different shades of blue to pull everything together. It would be a good idea to ask your wedding planner which color she likes best and bring that color into your wedding dress design. Another thing to consider is how the wedding party dresses will match.
For something blue on your wedding day, you need to take several different shades of blue and mix them together in a coordinating style. The best way to do this is to incorporate several different shades of blue into a single scheme. One great example would be to have your bridesmaids all in a lovely lavender color, with the bride wearing a deep purplish-blue dress. Then have the groom wear a deep indigo blue suit with the girls in a lovely pastel pink.
Other great wedding color scheme ideas for something blue include having your bridesmaids all wear pure white dresses with deep beige ribbons bow on their necks. Let your groomsmen wear a deep navy blue suit with a pin in the center of their chest. For your bridesmaids’ bouquets, I would suggest having them all wear pink roses as their bouquets, with the bouquets tied with delicate tissue paper bows. For the wedding cake, you could use chocolate frosting and have the cake baked in a light pink castle shape.
If you really want to go out in style, then you could find yourself visiting a wedding boutique that carries all sorts of new silk flowers for bouquets, centerpieces and even the favors for the reception. You will definitely want to visit a few January Rose boutique shops in order to see all of their gorgeous options for something blue. One place that you should definitely check out would be the San Diego Zoo. Not only is the January roses a beautiful shade of blue, but they are also extremely popular during the holiday season and are perfect for your wedding bouquet.
There are many other fantastic places to find your favorite something blue ideas, such as at your local mall, Target and even in some of the finer department stores. Just remember that your wedding is probably going to cost a lot more than most of your friends’ weddings did, so if you feel that you may not be able to afford to have everything just so, you might want to look into renting everything for your wedding, which is a little less expensive, but still adds an incredible touch of elegance and style. Just make sure that you are doing everything in your power to plan for a budget because this is one thing that can absolutely ruin a wedding if it is not taken care of properly, so make sure that you keep a tight grip on your money. Now you’re ready to go shopping!
