Something blue.....

It could be invites, chair accessories, flowers, cakes, cars, precious stones and of course - your garter! Something blue is an on-trend choice for modern brides, usually paired with another colour for contemporary wedding style - pretty yellow or pink, as detailing on crisp white or elegant cream, chocolate or lilac.

And, of course, blue covers a wide spectrum of shades - turquoise, cornflower, navy, subtle or dramatic, delicate or bold. Sit back and browse our gallery of blue wedding ideas, all the work of British wedding designers for today's brides.
