4. Bouquet

Delphiniums, muscari, corn flowers, forget-me-nots and darker-hued hydrangeas are a few glorious blooms perfect for a Classic Blue wedding. Or if you don’t want to go all in on blue flowers, you could simply add a few touches, like blue ribbon or even a sprig of thistles to your bouquet or buttonholes as a nod to your colour theme.

10. Set the Table

When setting a table with such a bold color, it’s important to consider balance and place the color accordingly. The blue works because it’s placed strategically at different heights—the plate, the goblets, and, finally, the candelabra—so it doesn’t overwhelm the eye at once.

12.Decorate the Altar

When designing the focal point of your ceremony, it’s important to make an impression but not take away from what’s most important: the two of you! We love the look of a greenery altar with an asymmetrical floral touch for this reason.
