Colors of Spring: Placid Blue

Hello to our fabulous Lots of Love Readers!
Here’s another popular color trend for weddings: Placid Blue. This pastel shade of blue exudes reassurance and tranquility as found in the clear skies and calm waters.   Here are some ideas on how you can integrate pastel blue into the overall motif for your wedding. 

We love, love, love these dainty handkerchiefs with floral designs tucked in placid blue envelops. Maybe something to give to your bridesmaids-to-be? Or perhaps the perfect place cards for your bridal shower? 

Wear Something Blue!
Following the tradition, the bride can wear her something blue under her dress (shoes and garter) or paint her nails a soft, pale blue. 

The groom will definitely rock these matching shoes and bow tie. It has such a vintage feel to it.

With coloured wedding dresses getting a lot of buzz, a bride may go non-traditional and pick a placid blue wedding dress like this adorable pastel creation by Elie Saab. So angelic. love.

Dress up the flower girls and bridesmaids in placid blue dresses.

The boys would definitely look cool in blue!

Hydrangeas will prominently dominate a placid blue wedding because of its natural blue color.
Mix it up with greens and roses to make a lovely bridal bouquet.

Line the wedding aisle with mason jars filled with flowers. 

Arrange flowers in vases with varying heights. 

Or you can bunch up some flowers to make a simple yet elegant centerpiece

Get guests involved during the program by giving out sparklers which they could light during the newlywed's entrance to the reception venue.

We love the idea of coasters where your guests can write personal advice or best wishes for the newlyweds.

A happy marriage has in it all the pleasures of friendship, all the enjoyment of sense and reason – and indeed all the sweets of life.” -Joseph Addison
