The hottest hue in wedding registry this season also happens to be one of the most versatile — blue! The flexible and diverse color can be paired with almost any backdrop, whether it be making over a beach house, adding elegant touches to an urban apartment or complementing a modern home. To create dimension, we recommend layering your blue in a variety of shades and patterns and pairing it with white and other neutrals to make the color really pop. Get inspiration for your own wedding registry — and shop the look! — with our favorite styles and products below.
