Deciding on a wedding colour scheme is an important first step in planning a wedding. The colour choice directs other decisions such as bridesmaids' dresses, flower arrangements and reception decorations. A cool coloured wedding scheme of silver, baby blue and white is suitable for weddings at any time of the year.
Create your own baby blue, white and silver wedding invitations. Use high quality paper or card stock to create the invitation. Use a baby blue piece of paper for the base and stack a slightly smaller metallic silver paper on top of that, followed by the smallest piece of paper which is white and holds the invitation information. Punch two holes at the top and thread a piece of baby blue, white or silver ribbon on the top of the paper and tie a bow. You could also use the same process to build an invitation, but use only one of the three colours to reduce expenses.
Decorate the church in wedding colours. Use silver toned candle holders with white or baby blue candles in them to decorate the front of the church. Floral arrangements should include baby blue and white flowers with the addition of rhinestone picks to add a touch of silver and glimmer to the arrangements. Use white linens with blue table runners to decorate the reception area. Large silver vases -- sterling silver or a vase that has been spray painted silver -- can serve as centrepieces and should be filled with white and baby blue flowers. Include a small, sterling silver bell at each table. Inform guests that every time a bell rings, the bride and groom must kiss.
A traditional white wedding cake can be made to fit the wedding colour scheme with the addition of a baby blue and white floral arrangement for the top of the cake. Also consider asking your baker to use baby blue coloured fondant to cover your wedding cake. She can use white icing and silver bead candy to embellish the baby blue cake. Use a sterling silver knife to cut the cake.
Give guests a favour as a token of your appreciate for their presence. A baby blue truffle box with a white ribbon is a nice way to tie the colour scheme into a take-home favour. You may also choose to give your guests something silver like high quality silver toned pens or silver picture frames, which can also serve as place cards for the guest tables.
