Blue color palette

There is something about blue that gives it a universal appeal. Perhaps it’s due to its vast spectrum of shades, each with a distinct quality that evokes an equally distinct response. For some, blue can mean coolness, serenity, calm; or intensity, mystery, magic. For others, it can bring to mind a tranquil sea, the midnight sky, a delicate blue flower, the intense cobalt blue of Mediterranean interiors, or a chirping bluebird.

This marked popularity of blue makes it an appealing choice for a wedding event color palette, while its range of shades is an event stylist’s dream. Decor elements may be items that are naturally blue—such as hydrangeas, forget-me-nots, hyacinths, or delphiniums—or that come in the desired shade, whether candles, tableware, or favor containers. When applied tastefully and stylishly, decorating a wedding event with such a likable color as blue is simply irresistible.

The Different Ways to Play with Blue

The key is to first decide on the desired look for the occasion and then to select the particular shade or shades of blue that will create it. For instance, a monochromatic palette using shades ranging from sky blue to royal blue to Wedgwood blue to navy blue may result in a clean, crisp appearance, an intense, exciting ambiance, or a calm, cool atmosphere. It all depends on which shade is chosen as the dominant one. Alternatively, blue used with different colors also results in distinct looks. Blue combined with violet accents, for example, says “cool,” while blue combined with accents in warm colors like red, orange, pink, or yellow sets a bright and cheery mood.

    I was wondering what shade of blue do you recommend for a wedding during the winter. I see a lot of people using pale or pastel blue, but wanted to know what other blues are nice. Plus, I want to have it match with silver. Any ideas?

    Thank you.

    (bride-to-be in 12/2009)

    Blue for winter could not be better! If you want to match blue with silver, then you can try a metallic or jeweled hue of blue. This is extremely fitting for a winter wedding especially if you also plan to use a lot white accents to mimic the beauty of the season. Silver can also be matched with a fuchsia and works with silver as well. Moreover, if you want to have a muted color palette, you can go with Tiffany blue, red, and an accent of silver and white. :)

    Pliz help i wnt to knw which colour goes well wth lime green

  4. Liz (The Wedding Bistro) - June 30th, 2009 9:08 am.

    That’s a wonderful color combination. Here is an example of how you can match lime green:

    You can also match it with orange as in this post:

    What about a pallette for Cobalt blue. The wedding is in March 2010 in New Orleans at night. We want it to have a spring feel since we are in the south and spring will be arriving soon. Also thinking of using pale pink and chartreuse. What do you think?

  6. Liz (The Wedding Bistro) - July 7th, 2009 3:59 pm.

    Cobalt blue is a wonderful color. You can match it up in any of the following combinations:

    1) chartreuse and even aqua

    2) pink with touches of silver is also fine if you want to soften the look

    3) lilac with touches of pale yellow

    Thank you!

  7. Rebecca - July 27th, 2009 2:12 pm.

    Our wedding will be taking place in mid August. My husbands favorite color is a midnight blue and mine is a very dark green, almost black looking in the right light. I am wondering if these are two colors you could use together in a wedding without it looking to dark and gloomy?

  8. Liz (The Wedding Bistro) - July 28th, 2009 8:24 am.

    Hello Rebecca. You may want to consider an accent color to add contrast because these two colors will most likely look too dark in the photos. For example, adding gold will work nicely with dark green. But I’m not too keen on having a color combination entirely based on midnight blue and dark green. A dark green and gold palette would actually like quite elegant. Also imagine jewels tones of dark green like emerald! You can then incorporate a color such as ivory which matches nicely, as well!

    I am trying to come up with ideas for my 10th anniversary celebration. The colors for 10th anniversary are blue and silver, and the gemstone is diamond. I am thinking of using diamonds as the theme and different shades of blue and silver. Can you show me different shades of blue along with silver so I can see how they go together. Thanks alot.

  10. Dale - October 15th, 2009 8:00 am.

    Oh yeah, my anniversary is in October.

  11. Krishna - November 15th, 2009 7:24 pm.

    Hi! Our church wedding will be end of August 2010 at 3:00 P.M. and planning to have a garden reception afterwards (around 5:00 P.M.). My fiance and I like blue but we don’t know what shade of blue should we consider. We want to have something to accent the blue..maybe gold or silver? Can you tell me what’s the best color combination? Thank you!

  12. sarah li (july 2010) - December 17th, 2009 2:53 pm.

    I love aqua, but don’t know how to match these colors. Help! Thank you.

  13. Liz (The Wedding Bistro) - December 29th, 2009 7:10 pm.

    Match aqua with any of these colors: brown, silver, lime green, chartreuse, or even a bold hue like fuchsia! Another option is to have a monochromatic palette in all blues!

  14. Olivia Chan - January 7th, 2010 8:35 pm.

    Do you think aqua and sea green would look good together?

  15. Liz (The Wedding Bistro) - January 12th, 2010 10:32 am.

    Definitely. They are an elegant pair of colors. You can imagine a beautiful scene filled with ivory blooms such as magnolias that make aqua and sea green come out even more. I would also incorporate some chic silvery accents just to glam up the look!

  16. klandra - February 24th, 2010 10:39 am.

    i would like to know whats a good wedding color to pair with cobalt blue that wont be to bright

  17. Liz (The Wedding Bistro) - February 24th, 2010 11:41 am.

    To match cobalt blue, you can a pastel shade of lime green, orange, or yellow!

  18. brittany - February 25th, 2010 4:36 pm.

    Im thinking of using cobalt blue for the tabel linens and then some shade of a lighter blue maybe aqua and a splash of fuschia for maybe some of the flowers and center pieces.its a june beach wedding. what do you guys think?

  19. Liz - March 5th, 2010 11:02 am.

    I’m having a fall wedding (outdoor ceremony, indoor reception) and using blue, silver and white/ivory. I’m having trouble finding the right shade of blue. Any ideas?

  20. Alma - March 14th, 2010 11:21 am.

    We’re having a June wedding and it will be an indoor formal reception. I’m using white linens & napkins, silver chargers and white china. I’d like to use blue hydrangeas and green orchids in my arrangements, but I’m having trouble deciding on a dark accent color, Any ideas?

  21. Liz (The Wedding Bistro) - March 17th, 2010 9:21 pm.

    Good question! You may want to try an accent of chocolate brown or perhaps plum. Just be sure that it’s not too dark so it won’t look black in your photos.

  22. Shi - March 20th, 2010 10:45 am.

    Hi!! My brother plans to get marry this December. According to his bride to be, she wants blue,magenta and pink for their motiff. Will it be a good combination then??Thanks in advance..

    Please help. I am having a winter wedding and I want sort of a baby blue color, but I can’t pick which blue I want and what color to go with it. Thank you

  26. Liz (The Wedding Bistro at Bellenza) - September 26th, 2010 10:29 am.

    Baby blue is a wonderful color that I don’t see very often in weddings, but when paired with the right set of hues, this understated color can truly come alive. Match it up in a 2-3 color scheme with hues such as orange, jungle green, or even red!

  27. Ariana - December 16th, 2010 11:21 am.

    I have a disaster! March 2010 beach wedding and I wanted dark blue iris, yellow rose and calla lilies for my bouquet. I had a sash made however, and it is quite beautiful but it is chartruese blue! It’s a very bright, vibrant color blue. Unless you can help me with a color palete I’m considering ditching the flowers altogether… All white flowers are SO drab!!!! :(

  28. Melanie (The Wedding Bistro at Bellenza) - December 23rd, 2010 4:23 pm.

    What a dilemma! It doesn’t seems to appear that white would make it drabby anyways.

  29. jessica - February 18th, 2011 6:35 pm.

    Im getting married in may, my fiance likes dark blue and wants that in also thinking of doing black, what other colors work with those? Im not a fan of orange or yellows..please help!!

  30. Melanie (The Wedding Bistro at Bellenza) - February 25th, 2011 9:13 am.

    For a dark blue color palette, consider matching it with silver with a touch of chartreuse. You may also match dark blue with stunning fuchsia. The color palette would look fantastic against a scene of lovely pink blooms!

  31. gerna - March 4th, 2011 11:38 pm.

    hi liz, melanie and team!

    im getting married on december and my reception venue is an indoor glass garden. my groom’s fave color is blue so i thought of using midnight blue, white and silver as our color palette.

    do you think this combo is OK? to make use of the venue, id like to have a floral inspired wedding though there arent too many blue flowers in our country and we dont have winter season for a winter theme.. but i believe this palette looks classy and elegant.

    what do you think? do you have suggestions for a better blue palette or theme?

    help pls!

  32. Melanie (The Wedding Bistro at Bellenza) - March 5th, 2011 10:49 am.

    Your color scheme is quite elegant! As for flowers, you may want to try blue hydrangeas, iris, and the like. They are quite common in most countries! Consider adding ivory flowers as well such as stephanotis, which would balance nicely with silver!

  33. Stephanie - March 30th, 2011 9:50 pm.

    Hi there! I am getting married on 11/11/11 on the beach in the Bahamas…. and I am having trouble choosing the colors. The only request my fiance has had is for blue… between a royal and cobalt blue. I am having trouble figuring out the other colors. White sure… but my dress is off white! I would like to bring in an island feel as well, while not losing sight that its November! He does not like green….

    With that being said any advice you could give on the best way for the groom to dress. Should he go with a blue shirt and linen suit? Black or off white???

    Thank you so much in advance for your advice!

  34. Kelly - April 4th, 2011 2:51 pm.

    Hello! We are getting married in June 2012 and having an outdoor ceremony and an indoor reception. I am going to be using colbalt blue and tiffany blue as our colors but I am not sure what to use as an accent color. Thinking of silver, or white, but want to make it look fun and summer looking. Any suggestions?

  35. Melanie (The Wedding Bistro at Bellenza) - April 5th, 2011 8:29 am.

    Hi Stephanie. Bahamas! Wow. Since he doesn’t like green, you may want to use fuchsia or yellow to match with cobalt blue. Lovely colors that will bring out a Caribbean feel. Stick with white for his attire such as a crisp linen suit! The backdrop will be your decor as well. So, go easy on the colors here!

    Hi Kelly. Consider adding silver to your color palette. You may want to infuse some greens such as chartreuse that has a yellowy hue, wihch is ideal for a summer wedding. Accents like gold would be lovely too. Think of it as a way to add glamour to your decor!

  36. Mel - April 27th, 2011 4:44 am.

    I am getting married next year August- i am considering tiffany blue for my colour scheme; i would like for my bridesmaids to wear the tiffany blue dresses with white. im concerned about what colour to wear in regards to my dress- i really like ivory but not sure if it will go with the colour scheme which is tiffany blue and white.
    any suggestion?

  37. jessica - May 9th, 2011 12:48 am.

    Hi, we’re getting married in november and my colours are red and silver highlights. my fiancee wants skyblue in the colour scheme. How do we put that together. Also can a skyblue shirt go with a red tie?

  38. Sheila - May 18th, 2011 5:26 pm.

    Me and my sister n law are both getting remarried to our husbands in a double wedding. Do the pasttels colors blue and green go good together? any good ideas?

  39. Tammie - May 19th, 2011 7:24 pm.


    My fiance and I are planning for a 2013 Summer Wedding. We are looking into having sky blue, lavender, and silver or ivory as our color scheme. Please share your thoughts with us regarding our colors choice. Thanks! Have a great day!

  40. Dahlia Day - June 14th, 2011 6:49 am.

    I recently did a post on aqua as a wedding color and think your readers would benefit from it. Here is a palette and link:

  41. MEME - June 22nd, 2011 9:57 am.

    I am planning a wedding with the color pallette of dark marine blue and light pink accents. We like the idea of using wine bottles in some way as table centerpieces. Do you think the cobalt blue wine bottles can be used in such a way to accent with this color scheme or do you think a clear wine bottle would be best?

  42. Lissa (The Wedding Bistro at Bellenza) - June 22nd, 2011 6:21 pm.

    Hi, Mel (getting married in August next year) — Definitely you can wear an ivory bridal dress, with the tiffany blue and white color scheme! See the pics shared by Dahlia above. :-)

    Hi, Jessica (getting married in November) — You can apply the sky blue to the bridesmaids’ dresses, then have the red in the bouquets. Yes, a deep red tie and very pale sky blue shirt can go together.

    Hi, Shiela — Yes, any pastel colors look very well together, including the pastel blue and green you’re considering. In fact, it will give a very clean, fresh look to the whole wedding set against neutrals like ivory florals.

    Hi, Tammie — Sky blue, lavender, and ivory would look really pretty–with silver highlights here and there. You could have the bridesmaids wear sky blue dresses and carry lavender bouquets, while your own bouquet could be a lovely combination of both.

    Hi, Dahlia — Thanks for sharing your post! I’m sure our readers looking for “blue” ideas will find this helpful.

    Hi, Meme — Your planned color scheme sounds really elegant! If you can find bottles in a deep cobalt blue that would be great…but if difficult, you could wrap the bottles in dark marine blue fabric and have them hold light pink carnations, dahlias, or peonies.

  43. Mariana - July 14th, 2011 9:17 am.

    Help please!!!
    I am having a destination wedding in Costa Rica. The wedding ceremony will be on grass with the sea right next to us. I really dont know what colors should I use for the decoration (for the ceremony or party). My fiance’s favorite color is blue *not baby blue, and while the wedding is on the beach we still want it to be elegant. I am color alphabet, so if you have a lovely pallete to post for me that would be so great.
    Thank you

  44. Lissa (The Wedding Bistro at Bellenza) - July 14th, 2011 6:11 pm.

  45. wemi bankole - August 2nd, 2011 1:36 am.

    Hi. i’m having the hardest time getting my colors to fit my venue. I’m having a country western themed wedding in May 2012 my wedding venue has a burgundy-like stained floor, but I had chosen the colors dark royal blue, yellow (sunflower bouquet) with accents of orange. How can i deal with this without giving up too much-(

  46. fay - August 2nd, 2011 6:24 am.

    is my wedding color combination alrit please advise on any chnages i can make
    royal blue for the bridal party,gray,yellow

  47. Lissa (The Wedding Bistro at Bellenza) - August 2nd, 2011 7:06 pm.

    Hi, Wemi — The burgundy-colored floor may not be too much of a problem once the venue is filled with guest seating, the buffet tables, etc. So the colors you’ve chosen (dark royal blue, yellow, and orange) should still work out just fine for your country western theme. If there’s an area of floor, though, that might still be visible (for example, the open space for dancing), you could request the venue for a wooden dance floor overlay for that spot — hopefully in a more neutral color than burgundy!

    Hi, Fay — If the colors you mentioned will be for the wedding ceremony, they would be fine (maybe royal blue for the bridemaids’ dresses with sunny yellow bouquets, gray suits for the groom and groomsmen with yellow boutonnieres). But for the reception decor, maybe you could replace the gray with a softer neutral like ivory, then combine that with the royal blue and yellow for the table decorations.

  48. Jennifer - January 19th, 2012 11:36 am.

    Hi I’m getting married march 2013 & I don’t know what colors to use? I love the orange. But if I pair it up with green & yellow it will look to summer help! And purple is off limits, my other half hates it. Please help!

  49. Lissa (The Wedding Bistro at Bellenza) - January 20th, 2012 12:47 am.

    Hi, Jennifer –

    Orange would look really pretty with a perky aqua, like in this link:

    Or you could try a bit of an exotic glam look by pairing orange with matte gold and ivory, as seen here:
    (scroll down to the color palette board)

    Or even orange, gold, and sea foam blue! See here:

    Hope these color options help! :-)

  50. Edwinna - January 20th, 2012 8:19 am.

    Hi, I am getting married in October and I wanted to use a marine blue as my main color but I am having trouble finding colors to coordinate with marine blue. Also, is marine blue okay for a fall wedding? and what colors could I use to bring out this color? I would like a classic look and I really love brown but feel that these two colors together make the theme really dark.. I don’t know what to do I am lost!!

  51. Lissa (The Wedding Bistro at Bellenza) - January 23rd, 2012 4:37 pm.

    Hi, Edwinna — The nice thing about weddings today is there is no one “right” color palette for a specific season! So the trick is to be able to use your choice of marine blue, and pair it with a nice color for fall. As you said, brown may be too sombre. So we’d suggest trying a softer shade like a latté, then add matte gold highlights for a bit of glam.

    You could also go with an all-blue palette (from marine to pale blue), as shown here:

    Or a marine blue with pops of kelly green or mint, like this:

    Happy color choosing! :-)

  56. Rochelle - May 18th, 2012 5:45 am.


    I’m needing your advice please. We are getting married 5-11-13 and we’re going with a cobalt blue. Is that color ok for that time of year and what is best to pair it with? We originally had white, but I want a little contrast of color. Then we had a light lime green. Please Help!! Thanks.

  57. Lissa (The Wedding Bistro at Bellenza) - May 20th, 2012 4:06 pm.

    Hi Rochelle — Cobalt blue is a strong, bold color on its own. So pairing it with white would be too stark — unless, of course, you’re going for a crisp nautical look (which can be very striking, too). It all depends on the overall look or impact you hope to create at your wedding. If it’s classic you want, you could pair cobalt blue with bouquets in soft ivory, pale peach, and muted green. But if you want a bright, perky look, you could pair it with one of these: fuchsia, apple green, or even orange!

    Happy planning. :-)

  58. Miss.B - August 11th, 2012 6:50 am.

    Hi,my wedding colours are Royal blue and gold. Can you assist me in how the groom and his men can put these colors in thier dressing. I POSSIBLE ADD PICTURES

  59. Lissa (The Wedding Bistro at Bellenza) - August 16th, 2012 3:13 am.

    Hi Miss B!

    Striking color choice! For your groom and groomsmen, we’d suggest bringing in the royal blue in their ties — paired with either charcoal or light grey suits. Then, the gold could be added in the form of metallic boutonierres, tie clips and cuff links.

    Hope this helps! :-)

  60. nancy - August 31st, 2012 7:43 pm.

    Hello Miss B,
    My sister will have her wedding soon and they are considering blue as their wedding motif but no idea what shade of blue will be suitable during summer and what color combination to use.we will appreciate any advice that you may care to give….Help us pls.

  61. Lissa (The Wedding Bistro at Bellenza) - September 4th, 2012 4:43 pm.

    Hi Nancy! For the choice of what kind of blue for your sister’s wedding, so much depends on the look she’s aiming for. If she’s going nautical or is having a seaside ceremony/reception, navy blue would be nice and snappy! But if her intention is to have a refreshing atmosphere to beat the summer heat, we’d suggest very soft, pale blues. A third option would be bright aqua or turquoise, if she’d like a modern, trendy look.

    Hope these ideas will help! :-)

  62. Rachel - January 19th, 2013 7:21 am.

    Hi! we’re planning for a garden wedding and i want it to look classic and elegant.. are the colors royal blue, gray and pink okay? i want royal blue to be the main color. do you have any other suggestions? thanks.

  63. Ernie - January 19th, 2013 2:11 pm.

    I’m thinking of combining royal blue with a shade of yellow or gold and i am wondering how that works.

  64. Lissa (The Wedding Bistro at Bellenza) - January 21st, 2013 7:50 am.

    Hi Rachel — Royal blue would make a striking main color for your wedding. I’m presuming, then, this would be the color of the bridesmaids’ dresses with pink bouquets; then the groom and groomsmen in gray suits with pink boutonnieres.

    Depending on the season of your wedding (for example, summer), you could also substitute a buttery yellow in place of the pink bouquets and boutonnieres. This would still work beautifully with the royal blue and gray! :-)

  65. Lissa (The Wedding Bistro at Bellenza) - January 21st, 2013 7:52 am.

    Hi Ernie — I noticed that you also posted a similar question on our other color article. Thanks for stopping by both!

    Definitely, royal blue with yellow (your choice of bright yellow or buttery yellow) and then gold accents would make a striking wedding palette! :-)

  67. lara - April 25th, 2013 3:22 am.

    I wld like to know the best colour for 60th birthday, and also what shade of blue goes well with gold

  68. Lissa (The Wedding Bistro at Bellenza) - May 8th, 2013 2:20 am.

    Hello Iara!

    Since this is for a birthday, we would suggest that the choice of blue be based on the personality of the celebrant. Would the person like vibrant cobalt blue or a soft powder blue? Both of these shades go well with gold, but only in accent touches. Hope this helps! :-)

  69. Lissa (The Wedding Bistro at Bellenza) - May 8th, 2013 2:29 am.

    Hello Kristi!

    Your choice of blue, silver, and white is lovely. The usual way to apply these would be to have the bride in white, the bridesmaids in light blue, and the bouquets and accessories with accents of silver.

    But you may also try something a bit different. You could have your bouquet in shades of blue with a silver handle wrap, then your bridesmaids in short silver dresses with white bouquets with touches of blue and silver. What do you think?

  70. VictoriaSummerhill - June 22nd, 2013 5:52 am.

    Hello Victoria — Sky blue is a lovely color (I personally think it’s not used often enough at weddings)!

    To keep things simple and cost-friendly, though, why not just use white florals and silvery or crystal accents. This way, your bridal party could just use silver accessories (that they can wear even after the wedding) and the gentlemen could wear sky blue or silver ties.

    You could also use the cutlery, glasses, vases, etc. that will already be at the reception as part of the silver decor — without having to spend on items in a different color. This would also go well with the holiday spirit in December!

    Me and my groom are trying to find colour combinations for lavender for October wedding. We would be glad to ask about decor, grooms and bridemaids colour combinations for their attire.

    Hi Ruby! You don’t mention what season or in what location your wedding will be. But in general, your choice of shades of blue and green could be: “bold and modern” (TEAL and CHARTREUSE); “cool and fresh” (AQUA and MINT); or “pastel pretty” (POWDER BLUE and PALE GREEN). It really depends on your personal style, and what will suit the season and location. :-)

    My colors are blue and gold for my wedding but I’m having trouble deciding on what shades of blue to use. I thought about turquoise or light blue because we like the lighter and brighter shades of blue compared to the darker blues like navy. Which shades of the lighter or brighter blues would be the best fit to go with gold.

    Hi Sara! Turquoise would definitely look “light and bright” combined with gold. You didn’t mention what season or location your wedding will be held in, but next to turquoise, you might also consider a soft, sort of dusty blue which would look very elegant with gold. :-)
