Oops! One day late, but hopefully just in time for some National Day perusing.

Anyway, help me out here – is it just me or do most brides pick the iconic Tiffany blue as a wedding colour, then skew lighter and end up with a powder blue instead? Don’t get me wrong. Pale blue is lovely, but if you take a good look at a box from Tiffany’s, you’ll see it’s actually quite a punchy turquoise.

Personally, I love it in a palette with cousin shades of seaglass, and accented with gold and rosy hues. Bonus points if the overall look is elegant but laid back, much like the très chic pairing of blue-boxed bling with jeans.

Side note: that cake. I die.
