Over the years I have had many color combination requests from people. One combination that has been quite popular, especially with African-American couples planning a wedding, is the color scheme of blue and gold. The shades of blue have varied from vibrant cobalt blue to royal blue to navy blue and lots of shades in between. Using blue for your wedding color will create a relaxing and peaceful mood for your wedding. This post will focus on the royal blue to navy blue shades and feature my royal blue and gold joined hearts jewel wedding invitation stationery designs.
I think anytime you incorporate gold into a wedding that you are going for an upscale, elegant type of look. I don’t see metallics going out of style anytime soon, either. I think the types of metals will come and go, changing from silver one year, to rose gold the next, and to gold leaf the next, just as the type of metal used on wedding rings changes over time. There are also so many ways to incorporate gold into your decor that achieving that eye-popping wow factor at your venue is very easy and affordable with the help of special lighting and glittery gold accents of confetti, ribbons, bows, streamers, balloons etc. Throw in some crystals to bounce around some more light and you’ll have a sparkling, glitzy looking venue fit for a King and Queen.
And speaking of King and Queen, royal blue is a great color to pair with the gold. There are thousands of shades of royal blue that you can choose from for the wedding party attire and decor ideas. I personally really like a wedding party that uses a variety of shades of royal blue in the bridesmaid dresses from lighter shades to darker. All the bridesmaids can find a shade that works best for them and the variety of shades will look much nicer in photos than they would if everyone was in the same shade of blue. instead of a mass of blue all the same color, your photos will have more contrast and detail. It also helps if you can be a bit more fluid with the shades of royal blue because you’ll soon find out that getting everything to match perfectly, just won’t happen when you choose royal blue as your wedding color.
I created the two different royal blue and gold wedding invitation designs as shown in this post. Both sets have simulated gold foil, a printed on ribbon and bow, and a printed diamond and faux glitter joined hearts jewel brooch. If you are familiar with my style at all, then these new designs are in keeping with my goal of giving you elegant looking printed invitations that give you the look of real embellishments but that won’t break the bank or leave you dealing with ribbons to tie or messy glitter. Just think of all the money you’ll save for the honeymoon!
Show-off those awesome engagement photos you had taken right on your wedding invitation! The royal blue and gold photo template wedding invitation design has an all over small floral pattern that has heart shaped leaves in it. If that’s not your thing but you still want to show off a great photo of the two of you, then the royal blue and gold photo save the date card is a nice choice to announce the upcoming nuptials and to give a preview of your royal blue and gold wedding theme. It can also be used as an engagement announcement.
The front of the non photo royal blue and gold floral wedding invitation design has the names of the bride and groom in an elegant cursive font in gold. Below the ribbon image on the front there is the popular verse “This day I will marry my best friend, the one I laugh with, live for, dream with, love”. That verse can be removed or changed to a Bible verse, special poem or quote that is important to you both.
The backs of either of these romantic royal blue and gold wedding invitations have an ornate scroll frame that surrounds your text. Depending on what wording you choose, there may be room to add on reception details and/or RSVP information which would cut down on enclosure cards, allowing you to possibly splurge on ice pearl paper and gold leaf envelopes which would look awesome. If you want an even nicer look, contact me about double thick ice pearl paper, belly bands, and/or envelope liners.
