People tend to associate the color blue with sadness, but for wedding favors it is definitely a happy color. In fact, blue wedding themes and floral arrangements are considered some of the most stunning and eye catching of all wedding scenarios. Have you seen a bride walking down the aisle in a white dress with a bouquet of fresh cut blue daisies or tinted blue roses? The contrast is stunning.

Wedding party participants and guests are usually happier with a blue wedding. Ask a bridesmaid to wear pink chiffon and you'll get an eye roll. Tell her you're doing royal blue and you'll see a bright smile. Blue is one of those colors that can be cool and hot at the same time. Just think of the balance blue offers in nature. Lakes and mountain streams are an icy blue, but a superheated flame is a fierce blue. Explain that to your bridesmaids and you can have lots of fun.

Blue is a great color for men also. Blue ties and cumber buns are distinguished. They can be bright and cheery or deep and dark, solemn for more formal occasions. Most men actually own a blue suit, usually as a second behind a black or grey one, but nonetheless it's a staple in a man's closet. Blue shirts and blue jeans on the other hand are primary items of clothing. The groom probably owns both.

White linens tablecloths look better with blue napkins and floral arrangements made up of azures and cerulean. Ocean backdrops bring another dimension of blue, as does an open-air ceremony with a cloudless sky. For indoor venues, there's nothing quite as beautiful as the blue of a stained glass window when the sun shines through on a clear day. Blue simply makes that vision better.

Did you already choose another color for your wedding theme? Don't be blue. Reds, greens, pinks, yellows, and purples all have their good qualities. Even silver and gold can become wholesome and pure when the shared love of two beings is joined together as one. This, above all else, is what makes that special day a success, no matter what color you choose.

If you haven't chosen yet, you should do blue. There really is no other color quite so diverse in its uses and meanings. It's even been considered "Royal" in the past and is so distinguished it has a "Navy" classification too. Think long and hard when you choose your wedding theme, but keep blue up near the top of the list for a primary color or to highlight another.
