Royal Blue and Metallic Wedding Color Palette

April 14, 2008 | editorial team

This past week I’ve been such a lucky girl! I’ve gotten to visit local Junebug member dress shops and choose all the wedding dresses, veils, hairpieces and bridal accessories we’ll be photographing for our book later this week. Fun! Yesterday I picked up this stunning Birnbaum and Bullock tulle ballgown from The Bridal Garden, and I fell in love with the idea of combining its classic beauty with cool rock and roll details. I love the way the grays, metallics and vibrant royal blues in this inspiration board add a lush but slightly edgy modern feel to this wedding day look. So romanitc, yet so current and playful!

Top row:
“Leigh” crinkle silk chiffon ball gown from Birnbaum and Bullock, available at The Bridal Garden

  1. Beautiful!  I love how brides are more willing to mix metallics now – it’s no longer “silver or gold”, but often a great range from pewter to stainless, warm bronze to ultrarich gold.  And the vibrant blue is a perfect match – well done!

  2. Love, love, LOVE this board! That Zac Posen dress and those blue Loubs are HOT!

  3. I love this combination. I got married this January and had the same color palette – off white, royal and silver. I love trendy, but I want to look back from in a few years and still enjoy my pictures. Classic is better.

  4. love, love, love birnbaum & bullock. Love them! I bought my dress from them (although you’ll have to wait and see which one I picked…)
