The 60 best blue wedding theme ideas 

Blue bridesmaid dresses

First up, we’re talking blue wedding fashion. Well, if one thing is for sure, it’s that no one will actually be feeling blue when wearing blue because this colour looks good on everyone. These blue bridesmaid dresses are fun but classic and elegant. Blue is one of those colours that, much like green, is pretty much a neutral tone in the wedding world. Get your girls together in mismatched shades of blue or all matching coordinated dresses, the styling is up to you! 

Blue wedding dresses

A traditional wedding dress is something we’ll always love. But coloured wedding dresses? Now that’s something truly unforgettable. If you want to make a statement or maybe you’ve never cared for tradition, choosing a blue wedding dress is one option we recommend. Perhaps you’re getting married for the second time and don’t feel like the white wedding dress is very you? We’d always recommend some colour!   

Blue wedding suits 

Besides black, blue is the most popular colour for a groom’s suit. Navy blue is the most elegant and timeless, being the closest shade to black. However, you can also play with pastels or bolder electric blues too! Just look how our grooms wore their blue wedding suits! Plus, if you need some shopping inspiration, our best wedding suits are waiting for you. 

Blue wedding cakes 

We had to include blue wedding cakes in this roundup. Blue isn’t a usual food colour, so making your wedding cake blue would definitely please your inner child. Your wedding cake is as much a decoration piece as it is a yummy sweet treat to celebrate your wedding, so enjoy making it something your guests won’t forget. 

Blue wedding theme decor 

Imagine your wedding day adorned with dreamy blue tablescapes, where every detail whispers elegance and romance. From the soft, powdery hues of delicate table runners to the deep, enchanting tones of navy candles flickering in the twilight, blue brings a serene sophistication to your celebration. 

Blue wedding stationery and signage 

The first impression of your save-the-dates and the final farewell of your thank-you notes shouldn’t be underestimated. It gives your guests the perfect sneak peek into what your wedding theme is and leaves them with something sentimental to remember your day by! 

Blue wedding flower ideas 

What flowers are actually blue? Well, you could have blue forget-me-nots woven into your bouquet, or blue hydrangeas cascading from your table centerpieces. Delphiniums and irises add depth and drama, while soft, powdery blue thistles lend a touch of rustic charm and wintery vibes. You can be as creative as you like! 

Blue is the colour of peace and serenity - both qualities to bring into your marriage
