Here, the design-led personalisation brand shortlists 4 wedding colour trends to know…
We find that so many couples are inspired by ‘something blue’ and look to cool, fresh tones for their big day. This colour scheme works well when mixing inky blues, and deep ocean tones with softer sky tones and can lift a design with a simple motif.
For timeless appeal choose black and white – it’s a shortcut to a chic, classic tone. Try calligraphy designs, tonal marbles or designs with art deco detailing for a super sophisticated look and feel. Perfect for formal weddings in grand venues or putting a polished touch on contemporary, laid back ceremony.
For an extra dash of romance, choose pretty in pink pastel tones for your saves the dates, invitation sets and on the day details. We find soft blush shades are very popular for spring and summer weddings. True romantics will love our delicate borders, soft florals or painterly designs.
Lush, natural tones deliver a relaxed, effortlessly beautiful vibe – think deep olives mixed with sage or a hint of mint. This look works particularly well with outdoor weddings, or weddings in a hot climate but can also be a clever way to bring a sense of the great outdoors to weddings at indoor venues.
