Dusky Blue Wedding Ideas – Decorations & Details

We are seeing more and more couples adding a hint of dusky blue to their wedding colour palette and we love it. The soft dusky blue tone can be mixed with other shades of blue for an all blue wedding colour scheme, or perhaps mix it with other colours. We like dusky blue and grey, dusky blue and pink, dusky blue and gold or just keep to all colours in muted tones. There are lots of different areas you could bring the dusky blue colour into your wedding, how about for the bridal party outfits, dusky blue dresses for your bridesmaids and grey suits with dusky blue ties for the men, they could wear a button hole tied with dusky blue ribbon. For your decor, introducing colours in the table linen can be really effective, dusky blue table runners or table cloths would look beautiful. Or for a more subtle tone use dusky blue napkins, or ribbons on chair backs. Bring the dusky blue tones through in your choice of wedding favours, how about blue macarons, or tiny boxes tied with blue ribbon. Dusky blue candles in gold candle sticks look perfect for a blue and gold wedding and of course using blue tones in your florals and ribbons will continue the look.

Drinks Station Wedding Checklist

Are you hoping to set up a drinks station at your wedding? Wondering what exactly you need to make it happen, we have created a checklist showing what you will need. If you are just in the early planning stages of your wedding this is the perfect opportunity to pin it now, read it later!

First things first, choose a location

  • Outside - make sure it's in the shade.
  • Inside - choose somewhere easy for your guests to access.
  • Set up a table - either take a vintage dresser to your venue or use one of their tables.
  • Dress the table with a table cloth or table runner if desired.

Something to hold the drinks

  • We love drinks dispensers, easy to fill and for guests to help themselves and re-fill their glasses.
  • Depending on the number of guests and number of drinks you are offering you may need a few of these on your table.
  • Dispensers work best when raised up so guests can fit their glass under the tap, try a couple of tree slices for a rustic look or a pastel coloured cake stand.

Glasses and straws

  • You will need to supply guests with glasses to drink from, these could be supplied by your venue or caterers or you could opt for something a little different and use mason jars or bottles for your drinks.
  • Add a paper straw for a little fun.

Fresh Fruit

  • Depending on the drinks you are offering perhaps some fresh strawberries, blueberries or raspberries would be a nice touch, guests can add these themselves.
  • Or use fruit to introduce colour or a styling element for your drinks station as crate full of peaches or lemons and limes looks lovely.

Signs

  • How about making your own signs, these could label the drinks you have on offer or create a bar menu.

It’s become an essential part of the wedding décor too, with brides and grooms getting super creative! It’s important to create a clear, designated area for your wedding guests to leave their gifts and guards, as they’ll want to put them down as soon as they arrive at the reception. If you want to really make your wedding gift table part of the reception, we’ve put together a few fab ideas to get you feeling inspired… Ideas-for-your-wedding-gift-table Image Source - Photographer

Vintage Birdcage

This is seriously pretty way of creating an area for your wedding cards and gifts, particularly if you’re planning a vintage themed wedding. Adorn with delicate flowers and subtle bird motifs to complete the look. For a completely coordinated look, opt for the same blooms as you’ll have in your wedding bouquet. post box birdcage wedding cards Image Source

American Mailbox

We adore the idea of collecting your wedding cards and letters in our American mailbox. Vintage mailboxes surrounded by jars of flowers or worn-out books look wonderful displayed on a gift table. Why not ask your guests to write their best wedding advice on postcards and leave them in the post box – this would be a lovely idea to read back after your wedding day. wedding mail box cards and gifts table Image Source - Photographer

Colourful Mailbox

If you love the thought of a mailbox but want it to fit in with your theme, you could always paint it to suit your colour scheme. A fun flag garland with ‘cards’ written on it is a fab addition. This look will definitely make a statement at your wedding reception. wedding cards table mail box Image Source - Photographer

Card Bunting

Whatever you choose to collect your wedding cards in, ‘cards’ bunting is a must-have! Drape across a suitcase or wooden crate to add a feminine touch. It’ll also be super clear for your guests to see where the card collection area is. If you’ve got another designated area for gifts, search around to see if you can find matching ‘gift’ bunting too! picnic hamper wedding cards table Image Source

Antique Suitcase

If you want something a little different for your wedding décor, consider a suitcase! This alternative option is perfect for a vintage wedding and there are tons of different ways to style it. A pretty floral suitcase will look fab if you’re planning a country garden wedding theme. On the other hand, if you’ve decided on a glamorous 50s theme, distressed leather suitcases are a great addition. Display on a table decorated with vintage photograms and cute props. vintage suitcase wedding cards table Image Source - Photographer

Heart Candle Holders

We love the idea of using candle holders with a cute heart cut out – this is particularly apt if you’re tying the knot on Valentine’s Day! Planning a country wedding? Our wooden-inspired tea light holders are perfect for a rustic edge. Colourful candle holders will also look beautiful at a Spring or Summer wedding. The cut out gives a subtle glow from the warmth of the tea light. Why not mix and match your candle holders by filling two with tea lights and the other with some pretty blooms? Cluster a small group together and you’ve got yourself a beautiful wedding table centrepiece! rustic tea light holders for weddings Image Source

Copper and Geometrics

Metallic accents are becoming increasingly popular at weddings and we can definitely see why. Copper and rose gold are must-have metals for any wedding, and give off an industrial warehouse vibe. Tea lights in copper geometric holders are an ultra stylish addition to any wedding reception. Use a single geometric holder as a table centrepiece for a minimalistic look, or line along the ceremony aisle to add the ‘wow’ factor. Alternatively, group together on your wedding gift table around the edges of the table. Not only will they look chic, they’ll create a warm atmosphere. brass tea light holders and lanterns Image Source

Tea Lights as Wedding Favours

Wedding favours are usually the finishing touch of any wedding day and you want to give your guests something they’ll really appreciate. Why not offer tea lights in pretty lace or hessian candle holders? It means your guests can actually use them, and when they do they’ll remember your wedding day. jam jar tea light holders covered in lace Image Source - Photographer

Hanging Lanterns

Light up the outside of your wedding venue by hanging tea lights in glass lanterns in trees. This will create a wonderful glowing atmosphere when your guests step outside. They will also look incredible in your wedding photographs. Hang the vases or lanterns from different heights to create maximum impact. hanging tea light holders Image Source

Mason Jars

Mason jars and jam jars will never go out of fashion in the wedding world and we absolutely love them. They’re incredibly versatile and the possibilities are endless when it comes to wedding décor. Add a single tea light to each jar and decorate with something that ties in with your wedding theme. Hessian, lace or colourful ribbon will work perfectly. You could even decorate with a sprig of lavender for a pretty, floral style. They’ll look gorgeous placed on a wooden tree slice along with some jars of flowers as your table centrepieces. One mason jar will be enough if you’ve opted for a round table, but if you’ve got a trestle table line a number of jars along the table. You could even add a little glow to your wedding bar by dotting jars of candles along the front – just be careful they don’t get knocked over! glass tea light holders with herbs attached with twine Image Source - Photographer

Antique Birdcages

Looking for a vintage table centrepiece with a difference? We love the thought of placing a couple of tea lights in an antique birdcage. This look can be kept simple, or dressed up with a sparkly table runner or some pretty floral decorations. birdcage tea light holders Image Source - Photographer There are tons of different ways to include tea lights at your wedding and it’s no wonder they’re as popular as ever!
