“If you love me (but not quite)
Send me a ribbon, a ribbon of white
If you love me, love me true
Send me a ribbon, a ribbon of blue.”
The children’s rhyme is a reminder of why blue is a favorite among wedding couples. And it’s an unpredictable color because there are so many shades, hues and moods. We especially love cobalt or deep, vibrant blues for their dramatic presence.
For cool sophistication, pair cobalt blue with silver, or for a little burnished warmth, try bronze. You’ll never go wrong with white, chocolate brown or canary yellow, but lavender, peach, cranberry and teal can be unexpectedly lovely.
