Don’t be scared to add colour to your wedding. It can really set the tone, style and feel to the big day.
Flowers are an excellent way to add colour and texture to your styling. If you are not sure what you want, ask your florists for advice. They are the pros at putting the right colours together.
It is important to consider your location for the reception. Think about what colours for your styling will compliment and not clash the decor of the venue.
What kind of feel are you trying to create with your wedding? If it is rustic and boho in a Tipi with lots of greenery and wild flowers, then maybe elements of these summery, fresh tones can be detailed in the bridesmaids dresses and favours. If the wedding is very formal and elegant in a ballroom then maybe gold and sumptuous tones would be better suited.
The invitations can set the theme by giving a glimpse to the guests the type of colours to expect on the day. You can go as bold or as subtle as you wish.
Research outside of the wedding world, look at fashion and interior styling to see what colours work well together.
What colours do you like? Sounds silly but you will be spending a lot of time over the next year looking at these colours so it has to be something that appeals to you in the first place.
What mood are you trying to create? Vibrant, bold colours add drama and excitement, softer, pastel colours evoke love and romance.
Remember that your bridesmaids may be head to toe in this colour so it needs to be something that is flattering and they are willing to wear.
There are no rules on how many colours to use at a wedding, it is important to experiment and think outside the box to create a unique and personal day that reflects you and your personality.
