{Something Blue}: A Palette of Shades of Blue + White

{Navy Blue, Blue + White}

A lot of times I find myself falling in love with color palettes that are simple. Like monochromatic palettes, for instance. What's not to love about this palette of shades of blue and white? It's elegant, it's sweet and it's definitely one that can't really mess up! It's easy to blend shades of one color so I definitely recommend that you do so. Trying to match the exact color for this or that will only cause you headache. And to be honest, when you have a little variation in a palette, that's when a true uniqueness unfolds and that variety is really to be appreciated if you ask me.

For this palette I imagined a Spring or Summer wedding. One that included all kinds of thoughtful details. For instance, I really love the idea of loosely tying silverware together with a ribbon. Oh, and I'm thinking that those deep blue heels would make the perfect ''something blue'' don't you think? Add in a touch of toile thanks to that beautiful blue china and some fun stripes - like the ones on that necktie and you've got yourself a really pretty wedding. Oh, and I'd be truly out of line if I didn't at least mention that gorgeous bouquet of anemones. What's not to love?

I usually don't like that color because it is a little too country for me, but I like what you've done. Especially throwing in those dishes. I see them everywhere!

Blue is one of my favorite colors because you can do so much with it. I love the idea of a monochromatic palette like this.

I'm way beyond wedding planning but if I ever got a redo (with the same guy of course) this would be my palette. Gorge.

Sarah {A Paper Proposal} October 17, 2011

Pretty! Interesting idea about mixing up the shade of blue. It almost brightens up the color palette a bit!

blue is really something...sure its a great idea to have blue wedding favors too...but I just dont know which of that pictures is your wedding favors...but all of them are wonderful...

Tim Duncan Events October 19, 2011

Blue flowers are hard to make tasteful - great job finding some truly gorgeous and tasteful blue bouquets!

Lindsey October 28, 2011

Using a monochromatic color scheme seems to be a no-lose situation. Once you decide on one color that you absolutely love, you can lighten or darken it and make a whole palette! The idea of not having to worry if things match exactly, because the palette is just different shades of one color, seems to be a great way to take the stress off and leave room for some fun pieces to be added as the event takes shape. Love it!
