Turn your wedding theme into a chic, elegant event with lacy details and hues of navy midnight blue. All the pretty details on your invites, macaroons and cake, wine glasses, and shoes definitely won’t go unnoticed. A rich monochromatic theme with gold, star-like accents creates an ambiance filled with luxury and romance.
Monochromatic blues with gold accents—it’s midnight magic.
These blue wedding invitations show guests a formal evening filled with class and fashion. Midnight blue cards with gold stars give a perfect introduction to an elegant evening where guests can expect to dress up for the occasion.
Let’s look at how to create a luxurious wedding with midnight blue:
A white wedding dress is still a top pick among brides, but going bold and colorful is a trend right now that makes a dramatic statement. This midnight blue dress—see-through and layered fabrics, ruffled textures and sparkly sequins—makes an unforgettable entrance for a bride.
You’ll think you’ve struck rich when you see your man dressed in a sleek suite like this one here. Have your groom’s suite coordinate with your wedding theme. Keep his suit lighter or darker than his groomsman so he stands out from the rest. Just as you stand out from your bridal party, so will he.
You’ve added your personal touch to your favors and table decor, now let’s add something to your place setting. Do a simple DIY craft and add midnight blue lace to the rims of your wine glasses or tie it around your napkins. Details like lace and ribbon are an easy way to add extra style to your tables.
Sink your teeth into beautiful macaroons topped with edible flecks of gold leaf. Everyone will love a dessert that is “on point” with your midnight blue wedding theme, and that’s easy to grab—one or two (or three). Go with finger-food desserts for a quicker, cleaner dessert bar. No cake cutting and no need for utensils.
Give your bridal party a classy look with floor-length, midnight blue dresses. When you or your bridesmaids pick your wedding party’s dresses, think about how you want your flowers to either contrast or compliment the dresses. We love how these midnight blue gowns contrast with bright white and green floral.
Walk down the aisle and dance the night away in heels that add a surprising pop of color and match your bridesmaids. Blue wedding shoes that have a little bling at the toe, give your photographer a fun photo op, and added personality when they peek out from under your dress.
If you never got your blue birthday cake growing up, it’s never too late. Midnight blue fondant looks beautiful beneath edible gold foil. Create an ombre look with your wedding cake, or a reverse ombre, like this gold-to-blue cake.
Let your flower bouquet enhance your wedding look. Blue wedding flowers are elegant and unique. Seeing as how you’ll be carrying around your flowers up until the bouquet toss, add special details such as gold trim on fine satin—this is sure to make you stand out from the rest. Blue wedding bouquets are perfect for a dramatic effect during an evening wedding. They are also perfect for those desiring a spring or winter wedding.
Every couple dreams of a night that is magical. After all, it’s one of the most important days of your life. We encourage you to dress up your invites, desserts, tables and your wedding party with this elegant midnight blue and gold theme. Enjoy discovering the details that’ll make your day a truly special one.
