@HotnHollerin:  Personally I’m not big into “themes.” I think with the colors it’ll be tied together. Love those doors!

Go for a nice color scheme.  Add other colors in with your blues or different shades.  You don’t need a theme, you just need a direction.

@HotnHollerin:  I think that blue will look magnificent in your venue. If you use silver chairs, you could also use silver napkins .

You are then left with a myriad of possibilities for your centerpieces. Almost anything can be used with that blue.

a mix of bright colors


orange is a complementary color for blue – you can use any shade from apricot to tangerine- soft to bright

tangerine and cobalt, the 2010 color?

you can choose any color you love- pink, fuchsia,  yellow, green or even white

no.... i love this blue and have been thinking about this color since i saw it for my wedding

@Day_In_The_Life:  I think blue would go great too that is a beautiful venue and you could do a number of things with it.  I would do one step at a time it looks like you’ve picked out colors so I would look at inspiration pics with that color.  I didn’t use the knot for much but one think I did use it for was inspiration pics by color.  I also used pinterest and browsed etsy a lot!

Then decide what kind of table, what color table cloth runner or no runner, what will the bridal table look like etc etc.  Bit by bit the whole picture should come together.  Best of luck this is the fun part!!

I’m having a blue, white and silver wedding too!!!! It’s so exciting.  My MOH is in a Cobalt blue dress, I’ll have Royal Blue organza sashes on my chairs, light blue hydrangeas or carnations (haven’t decided yet) with white roses in my bouquet and I’ve made blue flower tealight candles for some decorations.  Sometimes I think its too much blue but because there are so many different shades, I’m not too worried.  Definitely don’t stick with the one shade or if you do, get a contrasting colour to make it really pop so it doesn’t all blend together.

BTW, the darker blue dress would look much better than a matching cobalt blue 🙂  Good luck!

And if costs prevailed, you could always drape white curtains along the wall covering the red brick and it’ll give the walls a much softer look maybe with some fairylights along the top. Try and go with white fairylights though because the amber ones just don’t have that right look with your (our) colour choices Smile
