Chartreuse

Bold colours are definitely making waves in the wedding world at the moment so today is all about the little known colour chartreuse. Somewhere between yellow and green lies chartreuse; a bold statement of a colour that I love.

Immortalised in Jason Wu’s wedding dress, chartreuse is back on the fashion radar and making its way into weddings. Used in the right way chartreuse can bring zest into your wedding décor.

Green hues

Green is a colour that to be completely honest has escaped my serious attention until recently. Seeing the error in my ways, I am now a fully fledged green lover and today’s post proves it; I had great fun putting these images together. From the minty variety to the brights of emerald I genuinely love it all. For weddings, it is a natural and rustic colour with the cooler and warmer tones adding vibrancy in their own ways. To ramp up the luxe with a green palette contrast it with metallics, especially gold, and your wedding dreams will come alive.

Soft and minty

Grey Tones

Grey may not be the first colour that springs to mind when you think of a wedding. Cold, industrial and perhaps boring are words you may associate with grey. However, grey is also chic, modern and elegant both on its own and with other colours. 

Different tones of grey will really give your day texture and warmth, from silvery grey hues to full blown charcoal.

Lusting after Silver

Silver is my absolute favourite colour and it was well used at my own wedding. Lending itself to classic, rustic and vintage themes, it’s the perfect accompaniment colour to any palette. Offering an edgier look than the other metallics, it contrasts perfectly with your florals. It’s not a colour that needs to be used sparingly, oodles of silver will enhance your table decor or even your dress. In short, it’s the perfect metallic for your wedding day.

Raspberry Red

There is something so sumptuous about raspberry red. Maybe it’s down to my recent love affair with red velvet cupcakes or just because a raspberry and champagne cocktail is my ultimate drink. Whatever the reason, it’s a great colour to use for your wedding day.

My absolute favourite image is the bride and her white bridesmaids holding their raspberry red flower bouquets – I had a ‘stop in my tracks’ and swoon moment. Utterly delicious.
