Why blue?

Any special reason why you chose blue for your wedding? 


favorite color?  someone else's wedding? 


I chose turquoise and brown when I was planning a winter wedding because my original choices (maroon, peach, and vintage yellow) were too summery for the winter.  I chose them because DH and I always liked the combination when we saw things in Hobby Lobby that were those colors.  The wedding did end up going back to summer as the first thought was so we just threw in yellow with the two colors.  


anyone else have their inspiration to share?

Blue is my favorite color (royal blue specifically) and I always loved yellow as an accent color. I had never seen a wedding done this way, but decided to go with it...I loved the way it turned out!

I absolutely love the 50's... And I just think of the diners with the aqua blue and red :)


And then, way before I was engaged, I read "Shopaholic gets Married" and the cover of the book is aqua and yellow and I fell in love!!  Then I found out how common it was, so I swapped the yellow for the orange, and now I wish I stuck with yellow... But... Still Love my colors :) :) :)

those colors sound like amazing combinations misshammy.  Mine was the aqua-ish with yellow.  I'm excited to see the turnout of the orange.

am using navy as my main blue color because I am getting married in the evening and by the ocean so I thought it was a very fitting color choice.

Thanks lady!!  Everyone thinks it's very "beach-y", which it is, but...  That's not what I'm going for... So we threw in jade (a darker teal) and pistachio (a light green) into the mix.  We also have a dark pink to mix with the orange flowers :)

I love blue, it's my favorite color (and FI's, too).  Also, my grandmother was married in a blue suit so I've always know that I wanted to wear a blue dress.  We're doing royal blue, black and silver.  My dress will be light blue.

I read that blue represents faithfulness, which I thought was very wedding appropriate. The FIs favorite color is navy, so thats how we got the exact shade of blue.

My husband and I wanted to do our favorite colors, purple and green but we didn't like the comonation so I said well here is a website pick what color you like and then of course he picks the most manly color blue he can. lol. it's been really fun to work with marine though which is what he picked. it's an easy color to work with because it's close to navy.


at first it was somthing i thought would be odd for a fall wedding but we ended up having to reschedule due to the military and now we are having a winter wedding so it's perfect colors :D

Blue has always been a favorite color of mine, but I knew I HAD to have it when I saw the shade of blue the BM's dresses were in the store.  It was such a pretty color I based my entire wedding around it...and I'm so glad I did!!!

My middle name is Blue (Heather Blue Hoang.)  I'm a twin and my mom always dressed my in blue dresses while my sister wore pink or yellow.  It's also my favorite color--mostly aqua shades.

I adore the way blue looks is pictures and I think it looks great on everyone.  Whenever I look back at my mom and dad's wedding pictures I fall in love with the blue in the BM dresses.

We were originally going with Clover or Kelly green (which is still in the wedding as the second/accent color).  But once my girls tried on the green dresses, they just got washed out and didn't look comfortable.  My blue-eyed babes just sparkled in the Horizon blue at David's Bridal that one of the them tried on by accident because it was the only dress in her size. :)  So, it was an easy switch!!

Blue has always been my favorite color, and it looked less harsh (to me) combined with black and silver than red, which is FI's fave...but he gets to wear red, so it works out. ;)

We chose blue because we both love it, and there's something about that deep, rich color that's warm and cool at the same time. It's such a beautiful, multifaceted color...and we're multifaceted. We both love navy, so that's how we got to the shade.
