Hello lovelies! How are we all doing? Embracing this gorgeous weather (well it is a rather gorgeous 28 degrees as I type) and summer? I’m sure summer plans are in full swing and your evenings and weekends are spent outside as much as possible, perhaps wedmin is taking place al fresco with a glass of something chilled? The temperatures that were soaring late May prompted me to think about how to stay cool; in the literal sense but also in a fashion and style sense for your wedding.
Summer isn’t all about bright, hot colours, if you get the tone right, summer can be filled with pretty pastels; yes that’s right, they aren’t just reserved for spring! My favourite colours are pops of pastel pinks, purples and blues. Think strawberry ice cream, lavender and sky blue. As you probably know by now, I am floral obsessed, so much of my styling revolves around flowers and nature. I’m fascinated by how florals can really change the whole feeling and mood of a wedding and summer has the most gorgeous fleurs on offer, just speak to your florist – soo many! The pastel shades that represent summer cool are perfect for flowers. Blousy pink peonies combined with some blue and purple sweet peas and delphiniums; creating a stunning cottage garden look. Don’t want something as whimsy and romantic? Opt for singular big blooms in individual vases; this will create a more contemporary vibe.
Accessories and furniture could have pops of these colour and a patterned statement chair always works wonders and adds a focal piece to the overall look. If you don’t want too much fuss for the décor or flowers, then you might like to add some pastel prettiness to a signature cocktail that will also cool you and your guests down on a hot sunny wedding day. A botanical gin based cocktail with rose lemonade in is refreshing and adds a subtle hue to your drinks. Take the colour theme further and add some colour to your cake. Whether it be ombre or in the sugar flowers or icing, having a shade of perhaps blue, purple or prink will add a touch of pretty.
Fancy being a little bolder? Why not add a dash of colour to your bridal gown or the bridesmaids’ dresses. Blue or blush dresses are growing in popularity and offer that unique and wow factor look. If you don’t fancy it yourself I know your bride babes will love a dash of fun, whether block coloured or in floral fancies like in the inspo board.
