Brown and blue wedding colors are perfect for an outdoor, casual wedding or a more formal, yet whimsical affair. Your bridesmaids will look breathtaking in airy, blue gowns and brown satin sashes. Pick gowns from a range of blues like aquamarine, royal or navy. Pair the gowns with shades of brown like taupe, dark wood or sandy brown. Blue is a crisp, cool color that flatters many skin and hair tones.
Brown and Blue Wedding Cakes
A chocolate brown colored wedding cake may be too dark for some. Couples can incorporate their blue and brown color scheme into the cake by adding accents, such as brown silk or fondant ribbon at the base of the layers. Arrange blue silk or sugar flowers on the top of and along the layers of the cake. Carry over the flower choices from the bouquet to the cake.
Pick brown morning suits with pinstripes for your groomsmen. A sky blue tie with an interesting pattern will look stylish and sleek. Pale blue or cream boutonnieres look snappy and elegant against the brown of these suits. From young to old, brown is the perfect suit color for a morning or noon wedding.
Sweet Cake Toppers
Chocolate cake toppers shaped like the bride and groom are sweet and memorable. Ask a local baker to create an image of the couple from a photo. Small details like blue flowers in the bouquet and his brown suit will make this theme come to life.
Flower Girl Baskets
Jazz up a wicker basket with brown and blue ribbon. Wrap the handle with blue tulle and brown silk flowers. Use a hot glue gun to attach flat flowers to the outside of the basket.
Bold Blue Banquets
Create a family feel at the wedding by using long banquet tables and bright blue table covers. Festive brown chargers make excellent decorations for place settings. Crisp, white linen napkins and crystal glass wear add an air of elegance at this reception setting.
Airy Reception Decorations
If you want the reception to have a classy look, use round tables and abundant tablecloths for a traditional appearance. Place folded linen napkins on the dinner plates, securing the napkins with a brown wire napkin holder.
