Perfect for brides keen to avoid the traditional pinks or whites, this stylish colour looks timeless and chic, and of course, it’s a great way to incorporate the 'something blue' into your wedding day.

Dress your squad in blue and give them bouquets to match. You can go for navy, turquoise, royal or pale blue – there’s a shade to suit every bridesmaid! This scheme also works perfectly if you’re a bit nervous to go for blue flowers yourself; just make sure your bouquet complements theirs – we’d suggest all-white florals.
