Searching for a relaxing and comforting color theme for your special day? Then blue is perfect for you! Calm and accepting, blue is the color of tranquility and stability in Western culture and healing and relaxation in Eastern culture. Many religions associate blue with heaven or divinity.

While normally, a color of cool, collected balance, blue becomes electrified by orange, it’s complementary color. Orange’s animated, spontaneous and outgoing playfulness balances blue’s calm, dependable and quiet maturity. If opposites attract in your relationship, this duo might be the perfect personification.

Lighten and brighten up blue’s calm maturity with yellow’s warm youthfulness. Together blue and yellow tell a story of quiet intelligence and hopeful optimism.

Often associated with sky or water, blue is a natural fit for the color of Earth and growth, green. Gentle and dependable blue benefits from green’s organic and quiet energy, keeping the color palette cool without competing for attention.

To add a feminine softness, introduce pink to the color palette. Often associated with the different genders, blue and pink find balance when paired in similar values and shades. Pastels will gently suggest delicate sweetness and traditional tranquility. Brighter shades will feel more modern and playful, combining pink’s flirty energy with blue’s electric appeal.
