The colour of love
Bold, vibrant hues are in vogue again – but limit
choices to just one shade, as opposed to using the
whole rainbow. The neutral, muted matrimonial
palette of whites and creams is the perfect foil for a
pop of colour. Utilize bold colours only in the major
visual details: Ask your baker to create elaborate sugar
flowers or embellishments in your signature hue, or the
more adventurous can try a “reveal” cake, where the
decorative outer details remain a classic white while
the batter is dyed to match the wedding palette. At
the cake-cutting portion of the reception, the cake’s
colourful interior is revealed to the delight of the guests.
Tip
:
To maximize the visibility of your chosen colour
without overwhelming, keep everything else as
neutral/monochromatic as possible.
Petal pushers
Utilize unusual or rare flowers only in the major visual
details: Have your florist select bloom types that mirror
your palette and use them in centrepieces, bouquets
and boutonnieres. Suspended flower arrangements
are a really beautiful way to showcase flowers while
drawing the eye upward. In the case of a beach
wedding where tropical foliage and flora can be
incorporated, try cascading bouquets or fresh flower
ceremony arches.
Tip
:
Keep it simple. Use a cohesive overhead visual
element or multiple elements in the same style to
create a singular, stunning focal point.
In-tents
Tented weddings lend an element of surprise. Up
the dramatic ante by bringing indoor elements to
an outdoor wedding. Combine the formal silks and
sparkling chandeliers with natural elements – drape
fabrics frombranches, string together mini-chandeliers
or use local foliage to create centrepieces.
Tip
:
Use your invitations as a tie-in to your venue, and
a visual hint to your guests.
