Teal, Blue and Turquoise Décor Tips
Forward to a Friend
A fabulous mix of blue and turquoise inspires thoughts of warm, tropical islands with white sandy beaches. Wedding décor in these colors is fun and playful, whether it’s a casual seaside ceremony or a more formal event with a chic, glowing after-party. With a range of shades from deep teal to robin’s egg, the color combination is up to you, as long as it’s blue.

For a beach chic reception, I love popping blue and turquoise hues against an all-white table, mixing in shells and loose blooms for a relaxed yet elegant feel. If your color scheme is more neutral, centerpieces of green and white ranunculus and hydrangeas in shades of blue are a great way to add a nautical New England feel.

If the colors of the sea really speak to you, be sure to include them in your apparel as well. A gold and pearl statement necklace with turquoise beads will pop against a subdued gown. For a subtler splash of color, don teal and light blue sandals beneath your skirt. Or, bring a blue hue into your dress itself with a light blue tulle belt and train.

Read on for more tips on being inspired by the colors of the sea.

As always...more to come!
