Blue, white and silver is a strikingly beautiful combination for a wedding. When I visited a Bridal Expo recently they showed a combination of a white wedding cress with silver accents accompanied by bridesmaids wearing dresses of shimmery cornflower blue. They announcer said that blue and white or blue and silver would be an important color combination for the upcoming year of weddings.
Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue is the old rhyme that reminds brides of what to add to wedding attire. Blue is a color that is associated with the Virgin Mary, according to The Knot Wedding site. Blue can be added in subtle ways, such as a ribbon in the hair, a blue lace garter, a piece of jeweler with a blue stone or a blue flower in the bouquet.
Blue and white is a great color combination, suitable for any season. Add touches of silver for elegant evening events.Blue comes in shades from light ice blue to dark navy blue to dazzling electric blue. Brides have a choice of shades to use for gowns or for accents.
In looking at the House of Brides website there was a limited selection of gowns in shades of blue or with blue trim. The bride who wants to wear a wedding gown of blue or with blue trim will be able to find one, although there will be a larger selection of white wedding gowns.
