Blues + Aqua
I dreamt up what I call a "monochrome" wedding a few weeks ago- all in shades of blue - soft blues, bursts of aqua, and a bit of teal. It's modern and clean, yet soft and pretty. There's no need to match all the blues, the more shades the better. So, thoughts on this blue and aqua wedding? More monochrome palettes?
This pretty lightweight tote by Wedding Chicks is a perfect gift for bridesmaids and special guests. 100% Cotton Canvas, 6 ounce fabric, measures 14″x16″, with self-fabric handles.
