Today's color inspiration comes from the crisp shades of champagne & cerulean. Two stunning colors capture elegance with an essence of tranquility. There are endless possibilities when combining champagne & cerulean into your special day. Feature a silk cerulean ribbon around champagne colored flowers. Design, or select cerulean, colored bridesmaid dresses that are sure to brighten your color pallet. Incorporating cerulean is the perfect way to feature "something blue" in an aesthetically pleasing way.
