Spring Wedding Trends
A new year brings new trends and I have gathered together some of my favourite ideas from around the wedding world that look to set a trend this Spring.
Pantone’s colour of the year for 2017 ‘Greenery’, is a versatile trans-seasonal shade that will look great in any colour combination, but for Spring I liked their ‘Transitions’ palette.
Choose any of these fresh pops of colour to appear in your stationery, makeup, flowers or room decor. Having garlands of fresh greenery can be a great alternative to florals – not only is it more budget friendly, but it will complement any colour scheme. Think vases full of eucalyptus or ivy wrapped around pillars and archways.
I also love these simple green leaf place cards – use a metallic pen on shiny evergreen leaves such as laurel or bay.
They don’t get much fresher than the Bordello – made with vodka, Cherry Blossom syrup, lime juice and cucumber. See the full recipe here. Ask if your venue can provide a cocktail service for your guests on arrival or hire a professional bartender from somewhere like lewislewis.
Watercolour is a beautiful way to add delicate splashes of colour to your wedding. Find a designer such as Isle of Man based Kim Gee Studio to create bespoke invitations and stationery. She can also attend your wedding on the day and paint portraits of your guests!
Watercolour is a great way to incorporate ombre colours, whether they are on your wedding cake or your nails! Add touches of metallic too for extra glamour.
Capes and Crowns
If there is one wedding trend that I am hopeful will last forever it’s floral crowns! Team with a cape this Spring for a perfect alternative to the traditional veil.
