Something blue: The rise in blue themed weddings

14 Aug 2019

Wedding suppliers and Instagram trends have reported an increase in blue wedding décor

Red might be known as the colour of love, but blue is the new colour of weddings. 

According to research by marketing platform, Curalate, it showed that blue images get 24% more likes on Instagram than ones with red. 

Manchester based wedding stationers, Love Invited, have seen an increase in couples asking for blue coloured stationery, with the colour now accounting for 30% of all their sales, and for the first time edging ahead of pinks.

Amanda Williams, owner of Love Invited, says: “It’s interesting to see that blue is on the rise as a colour of choice amongst couples, as pinks and purples have always been the most popular. I can’t say if this is down to Instagram, but I can say that blue certainly works very well with foiling to add the extra wow factor, and it complements other colours well.”

Featured bride, Danielle Galea, married Oliver Torrance at Hutton Hall in Essex. She chose powder blue slim-fitting dresses with a small train for her bridesmaids from Jarlo London.

Rasa Pasaraviciute and Remigijus Drungilas chose a destination wedding on the Greek island of Santorini for their big day. The colour scheme was royal blue, white and silver. The bridal bouquet was made from white roses, delphinium and some greenery to match their wedding colour scheme. The reception table décor included four large centrepieces made of white roses, hydrangeas, lisianthius, greenery and hanging ivy. The couple also conducted a unity sand ceremony where they poured blue and white sand from different glasses in to one – a symbol of two people becoming one family.

Kate Ruscoe married Michael Paiano at Colehayes Park in South Devon. The theme was classic romance with a blue and purple colours. “I chose dusty blue Quiz dresses from Debenhams for my bridesmaids”, says Kate. “I also wanted low wide floral decorations for the tables in the marquee and our wedding pagoda was decorated with flowers in all lovely blues, pinks and purples.”
