Wedding Colors We Love: Cobalt Blue and Yellow

Blue and Yellow Wedding

In springtime, there’s nothing better than having a gorgeous outdoor wedding, however, by choosing a dynamic color scheme, you can bet that it’ll be even better. This season, keep your eyes out for daring color combinations, like cobalt blue and yellow, that are making wedding days stand out.

Inspired by blue skies and yellow sunflowers, a cobalt blue and yellow themed wedding is ideal for couples who want to make statement but still keep a sunny feel to the special day. To incorporate this theme, here are a two ideas on how to best utilize this unique color combination:

A Seaside Setting
As popular colors found in many beachy themed events, cobalt blue and yellow can help to incorporate a very clean, crisp, and laid back feel into your wedding day. To tie in the theme, you can always choose beach or sailing inspired décor, menu items, and invitations. Decorate your tables with sea glass, shells, or coral that stands out against your dramatic blue backdrop. Just be sure to remember the Beach Themed Wedding Favors!

Inspired by Nature
Nature is often a great source of inspiration, especially for seasonal weddings. To incorporate your daring color scheme, think about using white, ivory, bold yellow, or light blue florals that tie everything together. Daffodils, chamomile, daisies, forget-me-nots, chamomile, Queen Anne’s lace, orchids, or sunflowers are all excellent choices.

Add Drama with a Rich Violet and Black Color Scheme

For the dramatic bride, making a statement is what her special day is all about. To get heads turning during your wedding, why not try a daring purple and black color scheme with ivory, yellow, blue or silver accents? This new and oh-so-gorgeous theme is sure to fit in with any season, as it can incorporate various tones and touches that are both light and heavy, striking and soft. Use this image as inspiration for incorporating this daring color scheme into your wedding plans.

Iris Flower

When it comes time to plan, here are a few of our favorite ideas on making this bold yet beautiful color scheme come to life on your special day:

-Print your invitations using a royal purple ink on ivory or white paper.
-On your wedding cake, showcase edible pansies, posies, or similar purple florals. As a sweet touch, have them sugared and serve them on each guest’s piece.
-For the bridesmaids, choose sleek black dresses in a seasonally appropriate fabric.
- As part of your floral arrangements, go with irises, orchids, or purple roses, offset by delicate white, ivory, light blue, dark green foliage, or yellow blooms.
-Instead of wearing traditional white or ivory shoes with your gown, opt to go for a vibrant purple pair of pumps or mules.
-Use these darling
Ivory and Black Favor Boxes to share your special day with your guests. Fill them with your favorite purple or chocolate candies, lavender teas, or even delicate flower petals.

5 Ways to Green Your Special Day

Green Weddings

Weddings are all about the growth of a couple as they depart on a journey of a lifetime. Like a flower, the seeds of love are planted in the beginning of a relationship and then blossom on the wedding day. If you’ve just recently become engaged, or if you’re starting to plan your wedding, it’s time to start thinking about ways to make your wedding day a little bit more like a garden. It’s time to start thinking about lending a little green to your special occasion. offers up these ten tips on how to make your eco-friendly wedding both beautiful and budget friendly. Enjoy!

1.Place Cards
Instead of going for paper place cards, opt to write your guests’ names on stones using chalk, or make home made place cards out of scraps of cardboard and colorful markers.

2.Favors has a great selection of Wedding Favors that are designed with the green wedding in mind. Choose from several different flower seed varieties to pick the one that’s right for your wedding colors or theme.

Try picking out a non-traditional ring that uses eco-friendly diamonds and gold made with fair labor practice. Or check out some of the conflict-free gem rings that are available. Recycled jewelry and hand me down heirlooms also work well.

Choosing a location for your wedding that’s central to most of your guests will cut down on CO2 production caused by travel.

For your guests, opt to use dried flower petals or biodegradable confetti instead of rice to throw.

Ask Courtney: Unique Wedding Attire

Q: Hi Courtney, my name’s April and I’m getting married next September to the most wonderful man in the world. I’m excited about the wedding and we just started the planning process and we’re already lost! We’re not too into the idea of the traditional wedding dress and tux, we would like to try something different to set-us apart from the standard wedding. Do you have any ideas?

A: Hi April! Congratulations on your engagement! Planning the dress code for your wedding is the most exciting part of your wedding. However, since you want to step away from the traditional wedding attire, I can understand how this might be difficult for you. But you have more than enough time to find the right theme and I’ve complied a couple ideas for you to consider for your wedding.

You could try to keep one foot in the door of tradition with the use of fun colors. This happy couple displayed their appreciation for Pink and Black in very elegantly. To give your guests something to go home with, you could fill these with chocolate or this Solid Heart Bottle Stopper Wedding Favor to match the attire.

Stray even further from tradition with a more vintage look like this couple who opted for Grey. This style allows you to be unique, yet it’s still elegant enough to make for some amazing wedding photos. This style could be coupled with a vintage theme that utilized soft colors and and dinner by Candlelight.

There is always the option of ditching traditional wedding colors and going with a Retro-Cool look. This is very fun and will set your wedding apart from the many standard weddings happening at that time.

Now you could really step away from tradition if you place yourself in another time, place, or reality. In this case, a couple could live out a fantasy Celtic/Elfish wedding. Very far from tradition, but still very, very fun. Tie in some Celtic Wedding Favors to really set the mood for your guests.
