Originally derived from the cobalt salts of alumina, cobalt blue pigments have been used for centuries as a coloring agent in the production of ceramics, paints and jewelry. For today’s modern brides and grooms, however, we just think it’s a perfect color to add your wedding day. Cobalt blue might not be for the faint of heart, but if you’re looking to make a bold statement with your color palette, here are 5 ways to do just that!

Bright cobalt blue pairs great with other bold colors. With so many wonderful pops of colour, this color scheme is perfect for a fun summer wedding, don’t you think?



Cobalt blue doesn’t have to take center stage in your color scheme, and can act as a great accent colour instead. Here, it injects a touch of cool calming color to a vibrant and warm palette of pinks, reds, and oranges.
