Add stylish whimsy to your big day with a wedding color palette of cornflower and stone. The blue and neutral hues lend itself to a rustic outdoor ceremony, but also add touches of elegance and sophistication to the theme.

Capturing the beauty of this bright blue color palette is all in the details, whether it be subtly placed upon your cake, simple touches on your reception table or peeking out from the bottom of your wedding dress. Look for delicate ways to bring on the blue.

Like in your bouquet: A grouping of light-blue flowers like sweet peas creates an understated pop of color that will look incredibly romantic and charming with your all-white bridal look. Use these same flowers to decorate a delicately-ruffled, off-white cake to tie the elements together.

We also love the idea of making your "something blue" your bridal shoes. Channel Carrie Bradshaw in the Sex and the City movie by pairing a blue-toned heel with your stunning white gown — like these glam-meets-whimsical Isa Tapia stilettos.

Incorporate your cornflower-and-stone palette into your reception with patterned place settings that feel fancy, but not over-the-top. Fun, simple accents like these gilded butterfly coasters will add color and flair to your wedding bash.
