The ceremony is decorated in blues and greens, while overlooking the majestic water. While taking in the seaside breeze, during the reception the guests indulge in blue and green coloured candy and enjoy delicious slushie drinks.

Floral Friday - Ocean Blue & Sea Green Edition

Hi everyone and thanks for stopping in again for Floral Friday!
Today we'll be looking at some great flowers for an Ocean Blue and Sea Green themed wedding, but just because these are your main colours, doesn't mean you have to be strict about your flowers choices. Using slight white or yellow accents creates a gorgeous arrangement that still compliments your theme.
Now, when I started to get interested in wedding design, I didn't know that much about flowers and I had no idea that there were so many floral options for blue and green! To my surprise, there are TONS! Lets take a look at some common blue and green wedding flowers, followed by some great floral options for a Ocean Blue and Sea Green themed wedding.

What to Wear Wednesday - Ocean Blue & Sea Green Edition

Hello everyone and welcome back for What to Wear Wednesday!
This week's theme is Ocean Blue and Sea Green combinations. Since these colours really compliment a seaside wedding or a water-themed wedding, it's good to consider this in your fashion choices. Gowns with soft fabrics and flowy silhouettes are perfect for this colour combination. Even if you're not planning this wedding for a sunny island somewhere, look at destination lines by your favourite designers since theses dresses will usually have the flowing silhouette that you want. The same goes for your girls' bridesmaid dresses. Look for cuts and silhouettes that create a soft and breezy look. Let's take a look at some great dresses!

Table Top Tuesday: Ocean Blue & Sea Green

Hello everyone and welcome back for Table Top Tuesday!
This week's theme is the colour combination of Ocean Blue and Sea Green. This is perfect for a seaside wedding or if you are looking to create a very flowy, water-themed wedding. The obvious colour choices are blue and green, but don't be afraid to spice things up a bit by adding in some neutrals like white, black, ivory, or brown. You can even pull other colours that have similar tones like various shades of yellow to warm up your colour palette. Also, using different shades of the same colours creates an eye-catching look. Let's take a look at some great looks for Blue and Green.

Table Settings:

Using various shades of blue like the setting on the left creates an aesthetically pleasing napkin treatment, but the blue and green combo on the right is just as eye catching.


Use seashells having from ribbon coloured with ocean tones to really set that scene for your seaside wedding. Blue tinted glass votive candle holders give the illusion of bright ocean water right at your guests' tables!


Different shades of green really makes these invitations pop just as much as the modern block design.

Candy & Dessert:

Who doesn't love candy? Especially when there are so many festive colours to choose from!

Using different coloured seashells on your cake, like the one on the left, will really compliment a water themed wedding.

Not every wedding with these colours has to be about water or the seaside. The cake on the right uses beautiful flowers to create the feel of a garden wedding and the ribbon design of the cake on the left is simple and elegant.

Stop in tomorrow for some great ocean and sea toned fashions and don't forget to cast your vote for next week's theme!
