Color Inspiration: Blue and Yellow Wedding


Deciding on a color palette for your wedding can be difficult.  Who knew there were so many color combinations?  If you ask most people what their favorite color is, the most popular answer is blue.  An added bonus to blue is that it comes in so many shades from dark to light.  You just have to choose what shade you want and then decide on a secondary or supporting color.

So if you love blue then make that your primary color.  The great news about choosing blue as your primary color is that nearly every other color available goes with blue.  One of the favorites seen in many weddings this summer is blue and yellow.  My sister chose blue and yellow for her wedding last month and it was so beautiful.  It felt just right with the bright and sunny Texas days.

Many brides prefer to put their bridesmaids in blue dresses with yellow flowers.  These flowers can be sunflowers (very popular in this summer), roses, tulips, Gerbera daisies or orchids.  Several blue flowers can be mixed with the yellow flowers to make a stunning bouquet.  Try Hydrangea, Iris, or Delphiniu.  Work with a florist to come up with a great combination of the two colors and different flowers.

There are many ways to use yellow as an accent color.  Use it with your reception table flowers, napkins, banners, boutonnieres, wedding favors and even on your cake.  Mixing and matching the blue and yellow throughout your ceremony and reception may seem hard at first but keep working at finding the right way to use.  My sister actually gave both mothers a yellow rose during the wedding ceremony.  It tied in perfectly with her color palette and also to our heritage as Texans.  Blue and yellow, I think naturally compliment each other and your guests will enjoy the cheerfulness both colors bring.
