Turquoise is a shade of blue that is mixed with a slight amount of green. Like blue, turquoise is a cool, calming colour, it sends out feelings of calmness, tranquility, truthfulness, nobleness, and faithfulness. As well as giving out the same qualities as other blues turquoise also symbolizes youth and protection. Turquoise is a great shade of blue to use as a wedding colour as it can be seen as more feminine and sophisticated then other blues.

Colours to Compliment Turquoise Weddings

Turquoise is a more modern colour to be used at weddings, it can look stunning when paired with the right colours to give the look and feel you want at your wedding. When choosing colours to compliment turquoise you could start with your favorite colour, the colour of a certain flower you must have at your wedding or even what colours suit your grooms and bridesmaids skin tones.

Every colour comes in different shades and tones so you are bound to find one that will be perfect for you. If you want you’re wedding to sophisticated and luxurious you should use turquoise care fully in small doses. A sparkling bright Turquoise combined with neutral colours such as ivory, cream, white, black, silver and grey looks subtle, classy and sophisticated at a wedding. Keep your wedding feminine by pairing paler shades or turquoise with lavender and pale pinks. Remember with warm colours little is more and you don’t have to over do it small doses are often more effective then large doses when it comes to bright, strong colours. Balloons, table decorations, bridesmaid dresses, cravats or the waist coat of the groom along with ribbons on the flowers or even the cake would be the perfect examples of where you could use an accent colour along to compliment the blue and tone it down it to create that not tacky but grandeur wedding theme.

Turquoise can work amazing not only as the primary colour at a wedding but also when being used to adding glam to other colours. Using a touch of turquoise to earthy colour schemes such as chocolate browns, oranges and pale yellows will give a modern fresh feel to your wedding.

Colours to Avoid in a Turquoise Wedding

If you are going for that classy, elegant wedding most of us dream of then there are some rules when using turquoise. If you use turquoise in small quantities and stick to this one shade of blue throughout the wedding then in my opinion it can be paired with certain shades of any colour. Turquoise paired with pale greens, grassy greens and deep greens isn’t he best look for a wedding however a nice sea green will bring out the warmth in the turquoise. Turquoise paired with any shade of red not including pinks should be given a miss. Very deep dark browns, rich purples and deep blues are too over powering and rich for the fresh bright turquoise.

Turquoise Wedding Favours

Favours are the perfect way to say thank you to all your guests for attending your special day and will give them something they can keep to remind them of your wedding. Finding favours in turquoise may not be an easy job hats where favor boxes and organza bags that come in. Putting favours in small boxes or bags means you can give your guests anything you wish in any colour and they won’t detract from your turquoise theme as they will be concealed but also beautifully presented. Another option is to introduce that accent colour again whether it is black or ivory it will still fit in with your colour scheme and you may have more option when it comes to buying the favours. Traditionally favours were sugared almonds, chocolates wrapped in foil or candy of some sort. That would work well with having an turquoise colour scheme as there are candy and foil covered chocolates in abundance in every colour imaginable, however if you plan to give something your guests can keep what about miniature bubbles, picture frames, stationary or even lottery ticket holders which has become very popular, these all come in almost all colours to fit in with any wedding. For the kids activity books and jars filled with blue jelly beans or other sweets would be a great idea and keep them amused through the speeches, perfect.
