it’s all in the details: rainbow wedding
If you love colour, you will be smitten with today’s It’s All in the Details! A multitude of hues, every colour in the rainbow, nothing screams celebration more than this palette! This explosion of colour is not for the shy and retiring bride, a fun, light-hearted approach is required! This scheme works best in one of two types of venue, a blank canvas (like a marquee or gallery space) or a flower-filled garden, in a more ornate venue the addition of too many colours may just be too much.
The key to this to pick a range of colours, I’d say between three and five, and stick to hues of each of these to prevent complete colour overload! Avoid using too many primary colours without something to break them up (clashing colours, and lots of white) to keep the look sophisticated, yet playful and definitely not ‘playschool’! Think of the fun and fabulous way Kate Spade successfully uses colour clashing combo’s, and you’re halfway there!
Confetti designs are a really fun and elegant way to bring colour into your design, these prettily packaged invites are filled with confetti, ready to explode over your guests when opened giving them a great idea of your wedding theme!
For a multicoloured marquee wedding, a bunting motif is great, not only does it hint at a fun, celebration style event, but ties nicely in with your decor too.
For a more rustic colourful wedding, a floral invite is a sweet way to illustrate your theme.
decor & props
Coloured glassware is a simple and really effective way to add instant colour to your reception tables. You can hire colourful glasses from places such as Jones Hire, or for a budget option why not collect your own or DIY with this fab tutorial from Pocketful of Dreams? Adding colour through decor means you can save on flowers, using smaller arrangements to add softness and texture.
For a cleaner, contemporary look focus on adding colour through your place settings. A vibrant menu, or colour pop floral plates do all the talking, meaning you can keep the rest of the table design simple.
flowers & bouquets
Loose hand-tied bouquets with a soft, rustic look work well when using lots of colour. A variety of blooms and textures, from ranunculus, roses and peonies, to dahlias and even gerbera are available in eye-popping colours. Finish with a bold ribbon for maximum effect.
cake & dessert table
For a wow-factor cake or dessert table, this is where you can really go for it with colour! Introduce rainbow hues with a sweetie-filled dessert table with multicolour backdrop.
Embrace this year’s trend for ‘naked’ cakes with these fun layered options, filled with hundreds and thousands, or a medley of rainbow layers. You could ice these plain for a traditional looking cake with a fun surprise!
Or treat your guests with cute and colourful mini-treats, these would make great favours or late night snacks!
I’m in love with fun and colourful weddings! Are you?
