Dusty Blue Wedding Ideas & Inspiration

It is no secret that I love dusty blue! I mean, like, I really love it! If you follow me @gartergirl on Instagram or have seen my branding colors for The Garter Girl, you will know that I love dusty blue! Maybe it is the mix of gray in with the blue and that makes it so modern, but whatever it is, I love dusty blue! And, better yet, dusty is a growing wedding color trend. More and more brides and grooms are asking for dusty blue for their wedding colors in their reception design, their gifts, their wedding cakes, and, of course, in their wedding garter heirlooms!

Dusty blue for your wedding pairs really well with so many colors, like green, pink, white, yellow, black, orange - oh the color combinations with dusty blue are endless!

Have I told you how much I love dusty blue for weddings?!

With my obsession with dusty blue and weddings in mind, I want to round up a few (OK, a lot!) dusty blue wedding ideas and inspirations. From cakes to wedding welcome gifts and, of course, wedding garter heirlooms, dusty blue is the most perfectest wedding color.

Here are a few dusty blue wedding ideas to get your wedding design and planning ideas flowing....
