What’s Your Style: Pop of colour
The long-awaited days of warmth and endless, bright sunshine are here — spring has finally sprung! And there is nothing quite like the charm of walking down the aisle under a clear, blue sky, with all your loved ones and birdsong in attendance.
Springtime weddings are a classic, something right out of the fairytales we all loved as children, and it’s hard not to be inspired by the riot of colour that blooming flowers are adding to every part of life.
Pick Your Palette
Colour themes are one of the most important elements of a beautiful event. The colours you choose will appear on your invitations, in the decor, probably somewhere in the food, and likely in bridesmaid dresses, shirts, and pocket squares.
The trick is to not overwhelm your wedding with colour — you want a splash of brightness, visually arresting enough to draw the eye, but not something that hogs the spotlight and overshadows everything else.
So you can either go for some beautiful, muted, ice-cream colours (think mint green, powder blue, lilac and light peach) as accents to a base neutral colour, or you can go for something brighter and bolder, perhaps even contrasting, to really lean in to your springtime theme (bright yellow, magenta, and turquoise come to mind).
The Centre of Colourful Attention
One of the easiest ways to bring your wedding to life is through the centrepiece. And if colour is the name of your game, the centre of your tables is a good place to focus.
Centrepieces can be anything and everything you want them to be — something minimal and simple, or something tall and compelling. You should definitely incorporate the colours, bright or muted, you are using into your centrepiece.
The trick is to maintain some visual balance. Again, you don’t want your colours to feeling overwhelming but a dose of yellow, green, or blue in the middle of the table is a fun, fresh way to keep the eye happy.
Location Is Everything
Is it really a springtime wedding if you can’t smell, hear, and feel the spring happening around you? Outdoor weddings have long been a firm favourite, and if you happen to be lucky enough to have a place like a botanical garden nearby, there’s no better way to celebrate the fresh, colourful, newness of the season than tying the knot amidst the flowers.
You can also head into the countryside, where numerous estates and venues offer a full service springtime package: somewhere beautiful and elegant to host everything from your rehearsal dinner, to your reception, to the casual barbeque on the last day.
If you are planning to get married outdoors, though, remember to have shade for your guests (since sunburn is definitely not welcome at anyone’s wedding) as well as a backup plan, in case the weather decides to stop co-operating!
Details of Decor
Making sure the look of your wedding syncs up with your colour scheme is an important part of bringing the whole celebration together. There are plenty of ways to do that when it comes to decoration, from using reams of bunting, to bright ribbons and flowers, to colourful table settings and little gifts for your guests.
The trick with colour, always, is to ensure that you’ve got everything balanced and in harmony — too much colour will definitely do you a disservice, but just enough, a little pop of colour, will make your special day bright, beautiful, and unforgettable.
