Why We Love It:

Shades of blue are a natural fit for a seaside wedding. Paired with muted grays, a palette of periwinkle and indigo blue creates a relaxed but polished atmosphere.

Why It Works:

Using two different shades of blue (think: monochrome!) adds depth to a wedding color palette, without overtaking the beautiful scenery that comes with an outdoor or beach wedding. The gray details create a neutral foundation that help anchor both blues and the occasional silver detail—like the invitation script and mercury glass flower arrangements.

From the custom invitation suite (with a map!) to the mirrored hydrangea tablescape, let the photos below inspire your own palette of blues.
