At a wedding, the tradition is for the bride to wear or carry something blue.
Alternatively, some choose to have their bridal party don the shade, doubling up the luck with a hit of oceanic style.
Royal, sky, aqua, navy and dusty blue hues have become even more popular recently, with online searches increasing by 433% over the last five years.
Creative Manager of Party Delights, Sarah Allsop commented: ‘With the colour blue already synonymous with weddings due to the tradition of “something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue”, brides are taking it one step further by incorporating it into their wedding colour theme.
‘Having blue bridesmaid dresses is a big trend for 2023, so this is a great way to inject this colour into certain elements of your wedding.’
According to colour theory, blue is associated with feeling of calm and tranquility, evoking images of clear skies and peaceful seas.
The exact shade you choose can offer a more dramatic feel, with the likes of indigo contrasting nicely against the bride’s white dress. A lighter, more grey-toned blue is best if you prefer a muted palette, while periwinkle and cornflower feature hints of lilac that are beautiful for summer weddings.
