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.

Lanterns For Wedding Centrepieces

Have you thought about using lanterns for wedding centrepieces? Lanterns in the centre of your tables can look stunning as your centrepieces. Place a pillar candle inside each lantern and add a floral touch to the table. You could add flowers in small vases or bottles around the base of each lantern, or tie a small bunch or posy to a couple of corners of the lanterns. These make lovely centrepieces ane even better, you could gift the lanterns to a nominated guest on each table if you wish. If you have chosen long tables spread out lanterns down the centre of the table, you could alternate them with flowers and candles down the table. Use the same lanterns around the venue, at the entrance, in outdoor spaces, near your guest book to give some continuity to the decor. If you like this idea why not have a look at the lanterns we have available in our shop. See all our lanterns here.

Simple And Effective Ways To Use Lanterns At Weddings

Lanterns at weddings are a beautiful way to decorate any wedding venue. They’re an extremely versatile piece of décor and suit all wedding styles. You can line them along your ceremony aisle full of pretty flowers, or hang from the trees for ambience – there are oodles of options. Not only do they dress up a blank space, they double up as atmospheric lighting. What’s not to love about lanterns? Read on to see how you can use lanterns at your special day… lanterns at weddings stylemepretty.com - elankleinphoto.com Image Source - Photographer

Aisle Style

One of the most beautiful ways to use lanterns at weddings is by using them to decorate the ceremony aisle. This is such a simple, yet effective way to add something special to your ceremony room. You can add as many or as little as you want – it’s completely down to your wedding style, and you’ll be able to judge how many your venue needs. I love the idea of placing a lantern on either side of the aisle, at every line of seating. Fill with pillar candles or small tea lights for a warming glow as you say your vows. lanterns at weddings stylemepretty.com - cleanplatepictures.com Image Source - Photographer

Table Centrepieces

You’re completely spoilt for choice when it comes to using lanterns as table centerpieces, the possibilities really are endless! If you’re going down the route of a sparkly or metallic wedding theme, why not use a simple gold or silver lantern with a large candle. Metallic shades are seriously hot for 2016, and they’ll look so chic on your reception tables. For extra impact, surround the lantern with mercury silver or copper candle holders. Add a white few simple flowers for a touch of elegance. lanterns at wedding junebugweddings.com - danstewartphotography.com Image Source - Photographer If you’re planning a gorgeous Summer soiree, consider filling lanterns with beautiful blooms. Match your chosen flowers to your wedding bouquet for a table centerpiece that fits in with your wedding theme. Pink pillow-soft peonies look fab in gold lantern holders. Want something with a rustic feel? Wooden lanterns will look just as good. Geometric style lanterns are extremely popular at the moment, and are fab for an urban wedding. For a finishing look, decorate with a table runner that matches your colour scheme. This will really complete your reception tables and complements the look of the lanterns. lanterns at weddings Ruffled - photo by Pat Furey http://ruffledblog.com/upstate-new-york-wedding-at-bedford-post-inn Image Source - Photographer

Evening Ambience

You could just use lanterns in the evening too – who doesn’t love the glimmering glow of a lantern in the evening? They’ll create a lovely warm atmosphere as your guests dance their way into the night. All you need are a few bridesmaids on-hand to help out with lighting the lanterns and dotting them around your wedding venue. lanterns at weddings ruffledblog.com - awakephotographers.com Image Source - Photographer

Hanging Lanterns at Weddings

One of my favourite ways of using lanterns at weddings is by hanging them from the trees outside your wedding venue – this is particularly perfect if you’re having an outdoor wedding. Adorn the lanterns with beautiful flowers for a gorgeous, natural style. lanterns at weddings moncheribridals.com - ktmerry.com Image Source - Photographer If the majority of your wedding is based inside, you could hang paper lanterns from the ceiling of your wedding venue. Colourful, rainbow-inspired paper lanterns look truly fab and add a pop of colour to even the most modest of venues. Alternatively, keep it classic with simple white lanterns. As you can see, there are so many ways to use lanterns at weddings. They’re a wonderful addition to any wedding and can really help your wedding décor come together. Depending on how you dress your lanterns, they may be the only wedding décor you need for your big day… lanterns at weddings wantthatwedding.co.uk - brianamariephotography.com Image Source - Photographer shop-now
