#100: aqua ombre inspiration with a hint of gold
Morning brides-to-be! Wow, what a wet and miserable few days! Perfect for curling up with a cuppa and your favourite wedding inspiration, which is exactly what I did this weekend. Perfection.
Do you remember last week I told you about the real-life inspiration boards I styled for London Wedding Emporium? Well, this is number two (of three) a combination of four current trends; emerald, chevrons, ombré and gold! It’s rather appropriate, for my 100th inspiration board, that this one incorporates my favourite aqua tones :) This palette is certainly one for our contemporary and romantic brides, pairing softly fading emerald and aqua colours with a crisp white backdrop and a pretty touch of sparkle. The addition of textured timbers, succulents and wispy foliage adds a relaxed edge, while satin, silk and gilded details keep it fresh and elegant. Always a sucker for details, I love the hidden touch of sparkle in the liner of these envelopes, and the beautiful aqua coloured plates with a touch of gold in the place settings. I’m also smitten with the ombré tumblers, perfect for serving a pre-dinner cocktail or two! Keep deeper tones to a minimum, perhaps emerald shoes for your bridesmaids, or a splash of colour for your fingers and toes? As always the cake is an opportunity to have fun, just how delicious does this ombré buttercream creation look?
And here’s how I brought it to life, using a crepe ribbon backdrop, pompoms (have you noticed yet I have a mini-obsession with these!?) and a selection of beautiful items from my fellow exhibitors at LWE.
