Perfect Palette: Red and Blue


Happy Monday! Ready for another color scheme post? While I was working on the board for the navy blue/nautical themed post, I chanced upon this "All-American" wedding theme that also incorporates the use of navy blue. These colors hold great symbolism for our great country, so make your wedding a celebration of love for your significant other and your country! And what would a celebration be without fun poppers?

It doesn't have to be the Forth of July to display your patriotism... This would also be the perfect color scheme for all our honorable men and women who are serving or have served our country. And for our readers who aren't living in the United States, the red and blue color scheme is a lovely contrast which looks modern, elegant and classy. And depending on how to style the wedding theme, it could even look vintage.

The red and blue combination is so easy on the eyes, and it's such a comforting color palette. It exudes a warm, soft and cozy feeling. If you want a brighter combination, matching red with a lighter shade of blue or turquoise will instantly light up a room. This bold and striking combination actually works well. It adds a quirky and whimsical touch. Check out Martha Stewart's red and aqua color palette ideas.

I am in love with the vintage approach where the bridesmaid's navy blue outfit is paired with a classic red rose bouquet from the inspirational board. Love the pin up hair do as well. There are so many ways you could pair the red and blue colors together! This color scheme would also blend well with a nautical setting.

Have a great week ahead lovely readers!
