Blue and white wedding ideas from The Big Fake Wedding Philadelphia

Protea bouquet

King protea and eucalyptus, one of our very fave flower combos around here (as if we haven’t already raved about florals enough this morning). As our Philly friends may know, The Big Fake Wedding Philadelphia just took place a few weeks back, and these events are always full of fresh wedding inspo, each different from the last. For this particular BFW event, all the industry creatives involved (see a full list at the end of this post) were challenged to design a glamorous, avant garde wedding with light and airy details. The result was a blue and white color palette with a blend of high fashion and raw femininity.

Thanks to photogs Sara Fitz Photography & Design, Lindsay Eileen Photography, and Mariya Stecklair Photography  for capturing the designs for us all to see!

Over on The Big Fake Wedding Philadelphia page you’ll see that the color palette included slate, amethyst, faded red, black, mist and nude. So ethereal yet modern. And if you haven’t heard of Big Fake Wedding before, we’ve got lots more deets in these posts here and here.

Lots of layers and textures created dramatic tablescapes fitting for an elegant floral-inspired wedding.

It’s always fun to see how beautiful both dark + light tones can look together, you know?

Gemstones, sequins, lace, and metallics were used to achieve the dramatic avant garde vibe.
