Spring is in the air... errr... well it's certainly trying to be.
Perhaps it would be more correct to say Spring is supposed to be in the air. I'm going to take a premature leap here and start celebrating the pretty, colourful, fragrant season that is supposed to be upon us. The best way to celebrate and perhaps encourage Spring is to be bold with bright colours. Why not introduce the rainbow to into your wedding. Here is a little palette inspiration to get you thinking and some great ways to mix and match.
The easiest way to make a bold statement is with colour, the easiest way to inject colour into your wedding is with flowers and fashion. When your bridesmaids first hit the runway... umm... the aisle, then wham! your guests will be hit with the theme and colour/s of your wedding (the mood and atmosphere of your wedding). The bouquets and reception flowers will echo your bridesmaid colours, and paintbucket your party with glorious colour.
Using colours has been said to save money!! Bright and bold make an impact - you don't necessarily have to pack the party full of blooms, a little splash of bold here and there go much further than paler shades.
So now you have decided that colour is what you want and you want lots of it at your wedding - I hear you asking how do I fill my celebration with colour in a stylish not sickly way?
First, start to think of colours as building blocks. Start with one base colour and carefully introduce a maximum of three main colours which complement each other. Make sure they are all harmonising tones - too many different tones can look messy and too much.
So what colour is your colour? Colours have such an impact on the way we feel, red can make some people feel tense, while blue can be more relaxing. How do you want to feel at your wedding? And what colour makes you feel that way?
The magic rule to theming is to KISS! Keep it simple stupid.
Here are some example palettes with tonal harmony:
Good luck in your colour search!
