Your Spring/Summer Color Guide part 1 of 2

When it comes to planning and designing your wedding, picking the colors and style should be the most fun, but can easily become overwhelming. There is so much information and ideas available to us now days via the internet, that after hours and hours of clicks and typing in keywords it becomes numbing!!  Ive teamed up with Adorn Wedding Invitations to provide you with some assistance.  Adorn works alongside some top wedding specialist's to produce ultimate bridal styling and color palettes for 2017. 

Spring:

A charming wedding embodying a romantic and feminine feel. Rich in pastel and a whimsical feel with touches of rose gold for that air of luxury and class. Your special day will set hearts aflutter as you embrace ethereal pale pink tones with a grey blue hue. The muted, dusky and chic tones will give you the chance to set the scene for the romantic affair you’re envisioning.

 For the invitations, choose something with magical and cursive calligraphy to truly draw your guests in. Your wedding stationary should be printed with rose gold foil features, lush floral or laser cut designs and blushing water colored invitations for a soft and subtle look.

 We picture an outdoor garden party or a courtyard celebration and if you want to go with a theme, think of rustic or Boho. Welcome your guests with a timber welcome sign surrounded by draping green florals or a white board with pink flowers adorning the edges.

 It’s Springtime so it’s the perfect chance to be outdoors and to really embrace nature. Treat your guests with a wedding swing draped in pink blooms and bursting green leaves, flower arches, wreathes, garlands, hanging flowers, lush bouquets, petals streaming down the aisle and romantic fairy lights hanging from the trees.

Seasonal blooms include peonies, hydrangeas, lilies, gardenia blooms, hellebores, hippeastrum, hyacinth, jasmine, lilac, lily of the valley, peonies, ranunculus, snowball vibernum and waratahs. 

Consider a naked cake, even with an ombre design with added real life blooms for that extra touch of elegance. Keep your guests hydrated in this weather with a drink station of iced tea, lemonade and water. Bring in the pink desserts such as fairy floss, strawberry cupcakes, pink donuts and chocolate covered strawberries!

Cover the tables with white or blue linen and dress it with bright and blooming pink and white flowers and green branches and leaves. Think of clear or copper crystal tableware, white napkins, rose gold candleholders and for the real rustic feel, add some touches of timber to the place cards.

For wedding favors, consider gorgeous little pot plants accompanied with a loving sign such as “Let Love Grow.” The baby pink and blue are really playful so get into the spirit with some DIY projects such as creating pastel colored mason jars to decorate the tables with.

For the bride, a strapless sweetheart gown will look magical when paired with silver accessories. Dress your bridesmaids in baby blue or blush gowns and have the groom and groomsmen in grey or cream beige tailored suits with a pink tie or a baby blue suit with a pink rose pinned to it.

 

Spring Rose-Quartz and Serenity

Charming & Romantic  

A charming wedding embodying a romantic and feminine feel. Rich in pastel and a whimsical feel with touches of rose gold for that air of luxury and class.


Summer:

Shades of fresh, crisp green and stark white will surround your guests and a touch of gold or copper promise to stand out and make a statement. Picture a natural, organic and pure wedding theme that is romantic as it is earthy. Simplicity will be the key for your summertime wedding.

It’s summer time so plan an outdoor, winery or rooftop wedding. Keep it simple, for the floral arrangements will truly do the talking. Announce your special day with a fresh and modest design. Go for a minimalist look with rose gold foiling, luscious floral accents and embossed features on crisp white paper. 

Carry over that natural feel to the cake, go with a clean cut white cut and surround it with cascading sugar flowers or real life blooms! Your guests will need to be kept hydrated in the warm weather so get creative with mock tails and cocktails and even consider a make-your-own punch or mimosa bar.

Decorate the tables with white linen, fresh fruits and drool worthy cheese platters, little darling pot plans, fresh green blooms, clear crystal glassware, geometric caged vases with blooms bursting from within and copper wired chairs and touches of rose gold or copper tableware for a feminine and chic touch.

Bring out the rose-filled flower wall, you know you want to! If you don’t want to go that excessive, choose a wedding love letter sign reading LOVE, MRS & MR or you and your partner’s initials surrounded by flowers or a flower frame. This is the perfect season to go all out with creating a garden-like wonderland for your guests.

Make use of lush greenery and succulents and twined leaves paired with in-season pure white and light green amaranthus’, cornflowers, dahlias, gloriosas, hydrangeas, lavender, lisianthus’, peonies, orchids, proteas, stephanotis and zinneas.

For the bride, consider a French tulle dress or a sheer, light and lacy backless gown and nude or blush gowns for the bridesmaids. For makeup, don’t forget that the lighter the better, strobing and highlighter is destined to be a major trend in 2017!  For the groom and groomsmen, opt for a beige coloured suite or keep it smart casual with a white shirt and beige pants.
