Trend Alert: Bold Hues

When you think of popular wedding pallets, I’m sure pastels pop into your mind. But we’re here to tell you that they’re on their way out! We’re seeing tons of bold hues coming our way and we’re excited for this change. Whether deep, bold hues or vibrant punchy colours- the only thing we won’t be seeing is muted. Here’s a look at some of the bold hues we’ve spotted and loved.

we love these bold hues! such a refreshing change from all the pastel

LEFT TO RIGHT / TOP TO BOTTOM:

ONE: This dark blue is calling my name! I love how moody it is, especially paired with the vintage candlesticks.

TWO: Ombre is still in… but bolder! We love these pinks, purples and reds all mixed together. There’s something for every skin tone.

THREE: Cobalt! Oh, how we love you. This watercolour invitation is bursting with the bold hue but the simple design keeps it from being too loud.

FOUR: From bright florals to bright lips, we love the deeper colours this bride has chosen to create a signature look.

FIVE: Go bright or go home! Did you know orange could look so stylish? We adore how fiery this whole combination is- and the cool blue placemats? Such a welcome break from the bright colours!

SIX: This cake is great on so many levels. We love that this couple didn’t shy away from colour and brought in deep, colourful blooms to top off an already bold cake.

Tell us, are you as ready for this shift as we are? Or are you still loving the pastels? And what about the inspiration! Do you have a favourite? I’m all about the number one. That moody blue setup is giving me all the feels.

Trend Alert: Neon Weddings

A couple weeks back, we shared some of the trends we’ve been seeing in weddings for 2016 and into 2017. One of those was the ultra fun- Neon! Whether you stick with all one fluorescent hue or have a pallet of a full neon rainbow, we can’t get enough. Our favourite way to see this trend play is with neutrals. Whether you ground it with all white, black and white, or nude neutrals- this helps keep the look from looking like you’re going for a blacklight bowling party. Here’s some images that we’re totally inspired by right now:

What a fun idea! Neon and white for wedding colours

LEFT TO RIGHT / TOP TO BOTTOM:

ONE: When I first heard neon as a wedding theme, I immediately questioned what the couple would wear to incorporate that. Some of the styled shoots we see on Pinterest have extravagant brides with wild makeup- but that’s not for everyone. We love that this couple chose neon accessories that didn’t take away from the traditional wedding looks they sported.

TWO: A neon cake! This one is lovely with a mostly white textured fondant covering, with a neon pink playing peekaboo on each layer.

THREE: This has long been a favourite shoot of mine. The nude neutral is such a wonderful base for pops of neon! Plus, it adds an element of class that the vibrant hues can sometimes lack.

FOUR: To say we LOVE this neon faux chandelier is an understatement. It elevates the whole tablescape! We also love how the settings are grounded with black glassware and chairs. Talk about chic.

FIVE: This simple neon backdrop is both perfectly lovely and achievable thanks to the use of washi tape! Notice something about this? Yep! It’s mostly white too 😉

SIX: These invitations tell guests they’re set for fun, each piece sporting a different neon hue.

SEVEN: These save the dates are edged with a pop of neon, and better yet- they’re a free printable we designed for you! They’re the perfect pop of neon without committing to a complete theme.

EIGHT: Confetti! We love confetti all of the time, but we have to say- neon makes it even more fun.

NINE: If you do want to go all-out neon, why not choose a fun desert table to house the vibrant pops? We love these fluorescent meringues!

What do you think of this trend? It’s gutsy, right?! And what about your favourite inspiration? It’s our save the dates, isn’t it 😉

5 Vibrant Summer Colour Palettes

Can you believe we can talk about summer? It’s June! How did that happen so fast? We are well into wedding season around here and with the warming weather, we’re loving the more vibrant hues the sunshine brings. Today we’re sharing 5 fun colour palettes that bring a summer dream wedding to life. Every other season, we gravitate towards the quieter colours. And while we’re still a soft colour fan… we challenged ourselves with some bright, bold combinations for you today!

5 Vibrant summer colour palettes- I love these!

ONE: A vibrant pinky coral, bold grass green, and soft peach kick off our collection. We love the bold colours balanced with the soft peach. When you’re looking at greens… think beautiful greenery, and for the colours, picture blooms. Now you’re in love… right? 😉

TWO: The boldest of them all- we love this vibrant collection of warm hues. Red, pink, and orange are so bright and bold, but since they’re in the same family- they work so well together. IMHO any wedding that goes with this combo should probably serve bright popsicles too.

THREE: We had to include one that didn’t have some kind of pink. But we really love pink around here! This one balances bright orange and yellows with a deep navy (navy is pretty much a neutral- am I right?).

FOUR: This one has me picturing pretty floral patterns and teacups with a medium pink, teal, and jade-like green. It might be the most classic of the palettes we’ve got here.

FIVE: Bright, bold… and maybe a bit soft because we just couldn’t help ourselves! We love a bold pinky coral with soft pink and green. I’m already dreaming of the floral arrangements we could create with this palette!

 

Tell us… what’s your fave? I’m a hearty number five 😉
