Congratulations on your upcoming wedding! If your main color is navy blue, check out the following ideas for centerpieces for your upcoming wedding.
The first flower that comes to most people’s mind is the Hydrangea. Although hydrangeas can come in pink, purple, or even red, the blue hydrangea is the most typical. Flowers are produced from early spring to late fall, making the hydrangea a very available and affordable flower. If you don’t like hydrangeas try your favorite white flower with muscari (a small blue flower).
Purchase clear or silver hurricanes at your local craft store for each table – try Michaels or AC Moore – and put an ivory or white candle in it. Use a glue gun to tie a navy ribbon around the hurricane and decorate the rest of the table with beautiful votive candles. For more of a punch, change the table linens to navy to match the ribbon.
Use blue votives, check out these at Target, to lay all around a crisp white table linen.
Use three tall cylinder vases and put and put dark blue hydrangea petals in each vase. Fill the vases with water, then top with a white floating candle. Place a mirror under the vases for added dramatic affect and soft lighting.
Use an Accent Color!
Navy blue goes incredibly well with bright pink, green, yellow, white, and orange. Use your favorite color to match a vase of flowers or candles.
Use white flowers or candles as a centerpiece and use your table number, favors, escort cards, to bring the look together with your navy color. Print the table number on white premium paper of your choice and make about an inch smaller than navy cardstock so it appears as a border when glued on. Use stamps with navy ink or navy ribbon to add designs to table number or escort cards.
Utilize your theme to tie in a unique centerpiece: Getting married by the beach? try a sand filled vase with seashells and candles, a sandcastle, or blue seaglass vases alone. A country setting? Keep a simple centerpiece and add bottles of blueberry wine (favors or a game winner) to add an extra touch. Trying to be “green”? Use beautiful blue glazed pots to and plant your favorite herbs or flowers. Around the Holidays? Try a beautiful bowl of blue ornaments with votive candles. A “Night Among the Stars” theme? Try a silver lantern.
Centerpieces are a great way to express yourself at the wedding. Incorporate something that you & your soon-to-be love.
