Cool colors like purple and blue are good for creating a calm and relaxed feel. Lilac and dusty blue give off a romantic vibe and pair perfectly with neutrals or metallics.
How To Use It: This color palette is dreamy and romantic but totally refined. Make it feel formal by accenting with a metallic-like silver in winter or gold in spring. Stick to light purple for your flowers – few varietals come in blue – and incorporate the dusty hue into other details, like an aisle runner, patterned china and table linens. Bridesmaids will look great in either color and because the hues are complementary, you could even mix and match the dresses. Planning an outdoor wedding? Consider adding a third color. Instead of a neutral or metallic, try a soft green (imagine seeded eucalyptus garlands or olive branches), which will already be present in your setting. Let lilac and dusty blue show up in big and small ways: gorgeous wedding invitations, a ceremony arch of big hydrangeas and custom favor packaging.
