Crushing over colour - 6 wedding palettes we're in love with
A bunch of flowers from a friend, a pop of lippy on a rainy day or a bright yellow yolk on your toast at brunch - colour is all around and has the power to change you.
If you chat to any of your married friends, you'll be sure that they'll remember what colour the bridesmaids wore, and even the guys (who by the way, have forgotten their anniversaries) will roll their eyes and say "dusty rose and eggshell". Colour is memorable, and can change the mood of your event from broody winter fireplace to bohemian springtime.
The great news? We can help find "your" colours when we do your love logo and style sheet. But first, check out these schemes that we've taken from real life inspiration.
Bold and punchy
Charcoal, orange and yellow are spot on for an autumn wedding, but go subtle with these bold colours. Go for dark grey dresses for ladies, Dahlias in your bouquet or buttonhole, and pop of yellow for a tie or pocket square.
Soft and wintery, these cool colours aren't just for the corporate scene. Go for dark foliage, crisp white hydrangeas and a beautiful silk blue ribbon to complete your blooms. Your beau will look swish in a light grey suit and hint of blue in his button hole. Decorate your table with a dark tablecloth, blue vases and a pop of silver in your place settings.
Ice cream and summer
Summer is here, so let's celebrate outside. With a blue sky, and green leaves, don't be scared to mix shades of red and pink in your bridal party. These colours will pop as bright ribbons on the back of your guests' chairs and a balloon wall at your reception. Even better - add as many flower crowns and rainbow icy poles as possible.
Racing to the alter
