Unlike previous years' shades, this gorgeous, regal color works with just about any occasion. If you're planning a wedding or bridal shower and need ideas for a color scheme, reach for Classic Blue. Just because you're going with a primary color, that doesn't mean your event can't look chic. Read on for some serious Classic Blue color inspiration.

1. Classic Blue Shoes

Even if you're going for a traditional white wedding dress, you can still add blue accents with the accessories. Pick out a gorgeous pair of blue shoes. The shade will stand out as you take each step down the aisle.

2. Pretty Blue Bouquets

Of course, one of the easiest ways to incorporate any color scheme is with the flowers. Pick a bouquet of all blue or stick to a more subtle bouquet with white flowers and blue accents. Peonies, hydrangea, and orchids all feature rich, classic blues.
