Muted Tropicals

The tropical trend has really taken the world of wedding by storm and it looks like its set to continue. Now, if you’re like me and bright pops of colour isn’t necessarily your wedding style, fear not because tropical can be created in a more subtle, muted and pastel way. If you take the traditional tropical colours such as reds, oranges, corals, pinks and yellows and tone them down you have your muted tropical colour palette, which is perfect for your spring and summer weddings.

Whilst the colours may be more muted and less punchy than your traditional tropics, you can still use the flowers and foliage that can be found; think palm leaves, pineapples and coconuts. If you wanted to enhance more of a pastel and candy palette you could always paint or spray the leaves and fruits to make the décor fun and add to the theme. I love the use of these throughout the florals and table décor either used as a centrepiece in runner fashion or as aids to place names and favours. Warm metallics work well with the tropical tones and trend and this can easily be incorporated into a stationery suite and also used within the cutlery and flatware. As well as using tropical fruits in your décor, you could incorporate these into your meal and also drinks. Personalised cocktail anyone? You might fancy a mojito or pina colada…or maybe both!

Emma R

Being named after Jane Austen’s Emma, it is serendipitous that I would end up working in weddings. A country girl at heart, I am equally comfortable roaming the farm in my tweed, surrounded by animals or sat in a beautiful Georgian property dining on afternoon tea and sipping champagne. With a strength in organising and a flair for creativity and a passion for everything wedding related I have been lucky enough to work as a Wedding Co-Ordinator for some stunning venues across the South East. I look after the social media and am Co-Planner at Goose & Berry, luxury wedding & event planners & caterers based in London & Buckinghamshire (www.gooseandberry.co.uk) and am on hand to help you plan and design your perfect day.
