In Living Color: Blue Crush

Last month we shared the details of Pantone’s top color picks for spring 2013Monaco Blue, Dusk Blue, and African Violet are three of the new hues included in the roundup. We’re loving the combination of blues and violets for a modern yet romantic palette. Ombre detailing keeps the palette looking light and fresh. Below, check out a few of our favorite ways to incorporate the colors into your big day!

 This blue- and violet-tinged Lazaro gown is the real-life version
of a fairytale princess dress

We’re guessing this candy hearts cake tastes as good as it looks! 

Blue cupcakes, cake pops, and cookies lend bold color to
dessert displays

Use this heart tote bag to haul around wedding magazines
and planning materials; or, give them to your bridesmaids
as presents for helping you plan

The message and fonts on this invitation are simple,
but the block of color makes a statement

This DIY garland is an easy way to add a colorful, ombre
element to any setting
