2014 Colour Trends

So what does 2014 have in store for wedding design trends and colours?

Well on my travels I have found several new trends and colours that look to be hot for the 2014 wedding season.

Glamorous eras are going to make a comeback, especially the 20’s and 30’s – perhaps inspired by the release of the Baz Luhrmann movie the Great Gatsby?  These eras are all about elegance, glamour and decadence.

Lace is still very popular with hints of beading and pearls; this is being combined with a soft natural pastel pallet of colour.

Mint green/chocolate: This is a very elegant colour pallet, (mint choc ice cream comes to mind!) rich chocolate with crisp mint green, great for an autumn wedding.

Fuchsia pink/lime: For the more adventurous bride, statement colour combination of fuchsia pink and lime will certainly give that wow factor, brilliant for a hot summer wedding.

Be brave and bold in either clashing your colours or accenting either one for a more subtle statement.

Teal/orange: These two colours work really well together, teal giving the fresh aspect with the bright orange brightening up any room, giving a fresh, dramatic look. This will work great in the summer months.  There is so much opportunity to follow this through in all aspects of your wedding, from bright orange gerbera tied with teal ribbon, to bon bon jars filled with jelly beans as centrepieces. I could go on and on.

Being brave is the key to deciding on a colour theme for your special day, trends come and go but your memories last a lifetime.

So I hope this blog has given you a little bit more of an insight into what’s going on in the wide world of weddings and perhaps some inspiration!

Keep reading as I always find something creative that I want to tell the world about and of course I’m always here to bounce around ideas with and come up with something exciting, unique and creative just for your special day.

Wedding Centrepiece tips

So you have your checklist for the wedding and venue dressing is one of the last things some couples will think about, but why?

The venue is where all of your guest will be for the longest amount of time, so it is important that once the bridal dresses and grooms suites are organised that your focus should turn to the room where you will spend your first time as a married couple.

Centrepieces can quickly add style and elegance to any venue, here are just a few tips to bear in mind:

Remember to try and keep in key with design of the venue and the style of the room. Getting married in a stately home with vibrant ostrich feather table displays will look out of place in the venue and detract from your theme.
Tall ceilings need tall centerpieces to add height to your tables. This will give the illusion that the room is fuller to avoid guests feeling like they are sat in a wide open space.
If you’re having a more intimate day, smaller features such as floating candle bowls will not obstruct a guest’s view while adding extra romantic lighting.
