Villa Wedding Blues
Every bride getting married in Thailand already has her ‘something blue’ in the form of stunning ocean views. Blue is also the perfect wedding décor theme to complement the natural backdrop.
If you’re heading all the way to the islands in Thailand for your wedding then the stunning coastal scenery may be one of the main attractions. Thailand’s exquisite beaches and shimmering oceans offer the ultimate wow factor backdrop to any wedding.
If you want to emphasize the gorgeous coastal scenery even more, why not choose the colour blue as a theme for your whole wedding day?
From elegant forget-me-not coloured decorations to stylish sapphire bridesmaids’ dresses, there are plenty of ways to incorporate this classic colour.
Below are a few blue ideas.
First impressions count so if you’re planning on a blue wedding theme the best way to present the concept is with the first piece of stationery that guests receive – the wedding invitation. There are so many shades and styles to choose from, depending on the look you’re going for. Watercolour-style stationery is elegant and understated, delicate and super-stylish all in one go, and there are plenty of ways you can personalise it too. If you’re a talented artist, you could even have a go at making this style of invitation yourself.
No villa wedding would be complete without a few floral arrangements dotted around your luxurious private venue, and the bride and bridesmaids will probably have their own bouquets to hold as well. There are plenty of blue flowers to choose from, and for something a little more unusual the delicate and distinctive spurs of blue Columbine flowers are an excellent choice. If you’re after something a little less striking, blue forget-me-nots are perfect for groomsmen’s buttonholes. On the other hand, the pouch-like flowers of soft blue sweet peas could also work well for boutonnieres and bouquets.
Ladies in Blue
Choosing your own wedding gown can be challenging enough before even thinking about selecting the perfect frocks for your bridesmaids. If you’re going for a blue wedding theme, then at least it narrows the choices down. From navy blue to royal blue, pale turquoise through to deep jade, there’s a whole spectrum of colours to choose from. If you don’t want to go for a matching look then bridesmaids could all choose their own dresses, with the only stipulation being that they’re all blue.
Make a Style Splash
If you’re thinking of fusing your blue wedding theme with beach elements, then a table runner may just do the trick. In addition to incorporating a stunning ocean blue via the fabric runner that forms the base of the centrepiece, the bride and groom have also included cute flourishes such as shells and starfishes to stop the sea-like hue from becoming overpowering. Once night falls, the blue candles can be lit to keep the azure theme alight.
Light Up the Night
When you’re planning your wedding décor theme, it’s important to think about how it will come across to guests once night falls, too. To continue the cobalt theme after sunset, we love the idea of hanging blue lanterns around your private villa. Not only will this create a marvellous sense of continuity, but it will also help to establish a magical, fairy tale atmosphere for guests to enjoy. These small lanterns create a delicate, look, while larger paper lanterns are another great way of introducing colour and keeping the theme going.
