Whether you're hosting a seaside wedding or simply feel most at home by the ocean, a pretty mix of sea green and blue shades is the perfect color palette for a beach-loving bride. Plus, it's versatile enough to transition from season to season, meaning you can make this look work all year-round.

To perfect the combo, start with your base tone — we suggest blue for winter or fall and sea green for summer and spring. Then, highlight with the alternative shade to add pops of complementary color. A sleek invitation, like our pick from Lucky Luxe Couture Correspondence, sticks with a mostly-blue motif and incorporates bright splashes of green along with some metallic accents.

Pale blue dresses are perennially popular with bridesmaids since the cool shade works well with many skin tones. We love a strapless option for the summer or a trendy illusion-bateau neckline for cooler months. Get creative with your accessories, like a bold shoe or colorful necklace. It's an easy way to add that "something blue."

As for your dessert, go for a modern wedding cake. We love this confection from Lulu Cake Boutique, which features a geometric pattern in sea green and blue with pops of blingy gold.
