6 Wedding Styling Tips | Blushing in Blue

1. Prints Add Visual Interest
To me, this palette is all about communicating elegance and sophistication. Looking for a unique way to do so? Why not incorporate patterns like this gorgeous floral print? Whether you opt for a lovely polka dot printed bridesmaid dresses or some pretty floral printed linens... One thing is for sure, they're sure to get noticed! And that's a good thing! Just don't go print crazy, okay?

2. Don't Be Afraid to Go Bold! 
In keeping with the idea of adding visual interest, I think it's really important to remember that it's completely okay to ''go bold'' at times. These blue hydrangeas really pop against this bridal gown. And it's totally taking the idea of "something blue" to a whole new level. Don't you think? Tip: If your bridesmaids are dressed in blue, I'd suggest simple white bouquets in order to create a little contrast.

3. Vintage Touches Add Elegance
Remember when we were talking about patterns and prints? Well, here's a fun way to incorporate some more! Vintage style is really popular because it carries such a classic feel. I love this patterned china for many reasons. But mostly, I love how effortlessly it ties the color palette into the place settings. 

4. Experiment with Styles
When it comes to styling your wedding, always remember to experiment with styles. Just because strapless seems to be "the thing" to do right now, doesn't mean you have to select those for your wedding! For instance, I'm loving these long sleeved bridesmaid dresses. Unique, flattering and all kinds of pretty, these are the sort of dresses that will look amazing in photos and will be super easy to wear again!

5. Embellish the Details
When it comes to weddings, it's all in the details! That's why I'm totally in love with this cake! It has such an ornate and intricate feel. And it's the perfect example of the sweet embellishments I've grown to love! Be sure to carry your attention to detail throughout all the elements of your wedding day!

6. Something Blue
These bright and vibrant heels are perfect for your ''something blue!'' The crystal accented broach on top and that shade of blue is just absolutely stunning. Don't you think? Looking for a "something blue?" I don't know about you, but these lovelies had me at hello.

So there you have it! 6 simple styling tips to take your wedding day from drab to fab. Follow these and you're sure to discover a look that's perfect for you! So tell me... might you use a beautiful blue shade like this for your upcoming wedding, party or project? I'd love to hear all about it in the comments!
