Attention Brides: color is the new white! Gone are the days of muted and all-white wedding color palettes as BIG, BOLD COLOR and PATTERN are what we’re seeing arrive on the wedding trend scene. I have to say, the fun, bright, happy vibe is a breath of fresh air after such a difficult 2020 season, don’t you think?
Today, I’m putting together some inspiration for how you can add color and pattern to your wedding day!
Adding bright, bold blooms to your wedding day florals is the most obvious way to bring a splash of color to your wedding day. Lush florals elevate the styling and bring the color theme of your wedding day throughout the entire day. Your floral choices will be featured from start to finish–from detail flaylays, ceremony arches, bouquets and boutonnieres to reception centerpieces.
Adding subtle, but bold pops of color to your accessories can bring cohesion to your wedding day color palette. This is where you can really let your creativity shine! From shoes, to nail polish, a fun lip color, ring boxes or a statement piece of jewelry–your options are limitless!
Don’t overlook your invitation suite! The invitation suite is the first “welcome” to your wedding your guests are going to receive. Your wedding invitation suite will set the tone for the day in formality as well as style. What better way to invite your guests to your wedding with cheerful paper goods in fun colors and unique patterns?
Your guests are going to be spending a good amount of their time at your wedding seated at their tables, so designing beautiful tablescapes that incorporate your color theme shouldn’t be ignored! The most obvious focal point of your tablescape are the centerpieces, but don’t forget that color and pattern can also be added into drink ware, menus, place cards, napkins and other decor!
Let’s be honest, everyone loves a wedding for the decadent cocktail hors d’oeuvres, delicious main courses, and the cake—oh, the cake! Food is naturally bursting with color, but being intentional about bringing your color palette into your menu, now that’s planning!
