Wedding decorating ideas: white & cornflower blue

The combination of cornflower blue and white as wedding colours is fitting as they symbolise faithfulness, loyalty, purity and innocence. This colour combination works well for elegant or country-themed weddings whether they are held outdoors or indoors. This colour palette can be utilised in the wedding flowers, table settings, centrepieces and lighting to create a beautiful event for the bride and groom.


Hyacinth, bachelor button, iris, cornflower, hydrangea, and delphinium are just a few of the flower varieties that come in shades of cornflower blue. Mix these blue blossoms with white roses, lilies, Gerbera daisies and orchids to create beautiful bouquets, boutonnières, corsages and floral arrangements that match your wedding colours. Display the bouquets in clear vases or silver urns around the room and surrounding the entrance way. Create smaller bouquets tied with blue and white ribbons and attach along the sides of the aisles.

Table Settings

Cover your wedding tables with crisp white linen tablecloths for an elegant look. Use cornflower blue napkins and napkin rings to accent each place setting. Select china with a blue pattern and glasses with blue stems. Choose blue place cards with white lettering to direct guests to their seats. Set small favours of candies, nuts or cookies contained in blue boxes tied closed with white ribbons next to each place card. Pull white chair covers over each chair and tie a sash of cornflower blue tulle in a bow around its back.


Incorporate your choices of wedding flowers into table centrepieces to continue your blue and white theme. For a different look, create small bouquets of purely white flowers in blue-tinted vases. Cluster white button mums together and place them in a small square or round vase. Accent the mums by pushing a blue pearl-headed pin through the centre of each blossom. Set a white candle in the centre of a wreath of cornflower blue and white flowers. Place a square of cornflower blue fabric in the centre of each table and place the centrepiece on top. Scatter blue and white flower petals, glitter or pearl beads around its base.


Dim the lights and hang strands of white or blue twinkle lights wrapped in blue and white tulle around the room to create a romantic mood during the reception. Suspend white and blue paper lanterns from the ceiling with fishing line or ribbon. Create luminarias from blue paper gift bags with candles inside to accent gift areas, refreshment tables and the guest book station. For an outdoor wedding, use lanterns and luminarias along walkways. Set groupings of lighted blue candles in blue votives on tables to give off extra light.
