When considering the theme and style of your wedding day, we would recommend following your heart and mood, but would advise opting for neutral tones that can easily be enhanced and lifted with hints of glamour, vibrancy and personalisation if you are nervous about richer colours. Everything from your stationery through to your table décor and favours on the day should all elegantly and effortlessly flow together.
By opting for a muted palette i.e. whites, ivories and nude shades, you have the freedom to play with unique accents such as foil gold lettering on invitations, place cards and menus, or splashes of bright colours for your charger plates and flowers. These small, yet impactful details, give the impression that each and every aspect has been carefully created and thought out.
If you are having trouble with choosing the right colours, don’t panic! There are quite literally 100’s of different shades of every colour, so don’t be hesitant to consult a colour wheel to help you decide. Gorgeous scented candles and votives now come in multitudes of colours, complementing each and every style, creating a very bespoke and personal touch to ensure that your day is evocative of luxury and opulence and one to be remembered fondly for years to come.
Misting your ceremony area and venue throughout with a personalised scent is also a great way to ensure that your guests will remember your day affectionately. We are able to arrange this for you, even commissioning the process, enabling you to have your personalised signature scent, forever transporting you back to the special memories of your day.
It can also be useful to take into consideration your venue and the season that your wedding will be taking place. For example, a luxurious 5-star city hotel in winter would benefit from warmer tones such as rust or aubergine, in contrast to a beautiful stately manor house in spring, where featuring brighter shades is ideal.
Your colours can really help in creating a feeling and vibe so have some thought towards the mood you are trying to set for your big day. If you are going for subtle drama, then selecting a darker palette like navy blue, burgundy or emerald would be a better choice. However, if you are trying to give a sense of harmony and relaxation, then group together the colours that put you in that mind-set.
Admittedly, it is very easy to get caught up in the idea that you have to adhere to a strict colour throughout, however, in truth, complimenting shades of the same colour can work equally as well. Whilst your colour scheme is an important decision in the planning process similar to choosing the perfect flowers or bridesmaid dresses, you should remember to use it as a guideline instead of a rigid rule.
