Aqua-mazing. This cake reminds us of a mermaid for some reason! It’s ombre layers almost look like scales, in the un-fishiest of ways, as they travel from a creamy white with blue undertones to a medium-deep, rich aqua. It doesn’t need any additional embellishment because it’s so lovely just the way it is…hmmm….like you!

Fluid florals. Who said centrepieces need to be big to be bold and beautiful? Choose a blue flower that you love, find vintage, glass medicine bottles in shades of blue and clear (so that there’s some contrast) and fill them with the flowers. One or two flowers per bottle is great. Definitely a budget-friendly idea! So that you can spend your mula on…

Your blue valentine. Oh wait, that’s Paul Rudd…well, one can still dream. Ha! Kidding. We love his blue tuxedo-suit (from the movie I Love You Man), and if you’re having a blue wedding, we say, why not outfit the groom in the colour?! Your pretty white dress and blue accessories will pop standing next to groomy in this swoon-worthy getup.

Secret bridal blues. Whether you choose to do a garter toss or not during the actual wedding day, it’s still fun to wear one—even if your new hubs doesn’t discover it until after the wedding is over!

Did you choose blue for your wedding colours? What was your favourite blue accent?

Farm fresh. We are in love with this beautiful little bundle of joy. The bouquet is filled with yellow flowers with white and green accents and secured with a burlap ribbon — how fitting for this de-constructed arrangement that looks like it was plucked from a sea of wildflowers on the farm (in a very, very chic way!).

Kick up those heels! So, you can go two ways with incorporating the not-so-mellow yellow into your bridesmaids’ attire. You can go the pretty yellow dress route, or you can go the pop-of-colour accessories route, displayed here and nicely paired with grey (one of the BEST hues for yellow because of its nice contrast).

We’re seeing spots! Fabulous little yellow ones…all over this fabulous little cake. And doesn’t that flower look REAL? Cake perfection. We hope someone ate that sugary goodness on top. Fun idea (if you like lemon): you could do a lemon sponge cake inside. Mmm mmm good.

Colour-coordinated refreshment. Love this idea! Why not bring the drinkies into it, too? You can choose to do so with a non-alcoholic bevvie like this one, or you can make signature cocktails with lemonade. Delish!
