What's more beautiful than sweet baby blues? So soft and pretty, hues of blue are the loveliest wedding colours, particularly when paired with the lightest touches of blush pink white. A darling baby blue theme can see you from the ceremony to reception with feminine shabby-chic or vintage styling. This colour can work in so many gorgeous ways, depending on how you style your taste. From a beach wedding to the dainty delights of Marie Antoinette in the renaissance era.
To keep your wedding light, fresh and airy, accent your wedding with a lot of white to balance the baby blue hues. Silver also looks incredibly captivating with soft blues, as they're both cool tones that complement each other's beauty. Blue tulle is simply magical, or you can modernise your style with sequins or sleek slim cut fabrics. If you're incorporating darker blues, which will also look beautiful, such as cornflower blue or navy, then a dark blue suit would look incredibly handsome on your groom. If you're looking to keep things light, consider a grey suit or go casual with beige chinos with a white shirt and suspenders.
Blue is known for it's calming qualities! Keep the nerves in check by surrounding yourself with soft, soothing shades of baby blue. Weddings are amazing, but there is a lot happening! Keep calm with blue and get married!

Plato once said that beauty of style, harmony, grace and good rhythm
depend on simplicity. Ultimately, less is more. Sometimes, however, it
takes a lot of effort to look like you haven’t put in any effort at all.
Which is why we have put together our favourite ‘less is more’ styling
concepts – ideas in neutrals that are elegant, not boring.
White is crisp, timeless and looks fabulous when teamed with earthy
woods, taupes and…more white! Understated sophistication is a peony
bouquet, a freshly picked flower placed in a rustic glass and a loosely
folded napkin on white tablecloth.
Simple details will keep your styling interesting and without a frenzy of colour the beautiful details are what guests will notice. A place card handwritten with love will not be overlooked and a succulent plant is a bomboniere gift that complements the natural, effortless styling. In a fast-moving world colour palettes come and go but style lasts forever.

Pop! Pow! A gorgeous way to add a splash of colour to your wedding is through the bridesmaid dresses or flowers. Sometimes, it can be tricky to match vibrant hues together - especially if you reaaaally want colourful flowers AND bridesmaid dresses (we don't blame you, we're suckers for anything eye-catching!). In order to match colourful bouquets to bright bridesmaid dresses, just follow these simple steps:
Choose a block colour as your bridesmaid dress, or else the entire combo may become a little busy!
A simplistic dress design will allow you to be more creative with your flowers - anything too detailed might take the attention away from your amaaaazing bouquets.
You have two options: choose flowers that complement the colours in your bridesmaid dresses, for example, a gradient of purple hue OR choose the opposite of the colour wheel. This means that if your main girls are wearing a purple dress, incorporate yellow into the bouquet, or if they are wearing turquoise, create orange arrangements for them to carry. This will ensure the colours really POP!

While red roses are still a classic favourite, brides are throwing stunning dahlias, poppies and berries into the mix with an infusion of pink. Which red bouquet is your fave? xx

There's something inherently romantic about grey and white - the soft colour palette is dreamy and darling, reminding one of the feeling when they first fell in love, floating high above the clouds. Our romantic grey wedding style is classic and beautiful for all stylish brides...
The beautiful thing about grey is that you can modernise the hue by simply playing with textures and shapes. For a romantic feel, incorporate soft edges and ruffles, or to create a contemporary feel, grey can look gorgeous in straight lines, geometric shapes and glossy surfaces. To create an even more romantic look, decorate your grey and white palette with a hint of pink or a light green.

Join us as we an embark on a love affair with fresh aqua and white hues. This light colour combo was made for summer, highlighting the natural beauty of the outdoors and sparkling in the sunlight. Silver accents complement the playful palette, creating an air of elegance with connotations of every gal's favourite indulgence; Tiffany & Co.
An aqua wedding is perfect for the spring and summer months, when there is an air of freedom and everyone is feeling relaxed and rested. The vibrant colour will lift spirits and remind guests of a tropical island getaway. Aqua and white are a match made in heaven, which is why this hue is a wonderful choice for weddings. Aqua bridesmaid dresses will look stunning against the fresh white gown on the bride. Lovely!
Don't be afraid to incorporate hints of other light and bright hues, such as the blue flowers mixed into the wedding centrepiece below. Citrus colours will also look beautiful; think a splash of chartreuse here and there. Fresh lime mixed into your aqua cocktails will only highlight the fun freshness of your wedding style.

It's no surprise that orchid bridal bouquets are THE biggest trend this year - after all, Pantone did name Radiant Orchid as the hue for 2014. Orchids are delicate and beautiful blooms, both exotic in appearance and desirable. A particularly long-lasting and elegant flower, they are the perfect choice for weddings, complementing any style with grace and refinement. In Victorian England orchids adopted the mantle of luxury, and this label has deservedly adorned the orchid until this day...

Aussie, Aussie, Aussie! Oi, Oi, Oi! Australia Day is fast approaching and to celebrate we've put together some gorgeous Aussie Outback wedding inspiration for those who are proud of their fair dinkum Aussie roots! An Australian wedding is a fabulous way to pay homage to your heritage, while making guests feel relaxed and comfy among the familiar rustic Aussie style. A little bit outback, a little bit country, a little bit rustic and very, very Australian...
An Aussie outback theme calls upon natural and rustic elements to really highlight the beauty of our wider sunburnt country or the endless vineyards in South Australia (less outback, more chic). Native Australia flora is the way to go; we're so lucky to have an abundance of beautiful native flowers at our fingertips, so incorporate them into your bouquets and decor for an authentic Aussie feel.
Don't forget the Australian food!! Swap the traditional wedding cake in favour of the iconic Aussie pavlova, which is also a light and fresh choice for the hot Australian heat. Lamington sticks and pies and pasties in restored crates are chic and rustic but are still as Aussie as it gets.

It's that time of the year again - Pantone have announced the official colour of the year for 2014. Drum roll please...move over emerald, 'radiant orchid' is the new in hue! In the company's annual announcement, Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute, described the hue as “an enchanting harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones" that "inspires confidence and emanates great joy, love and health." We are sooo excited that Pantone have chosen this gorgeous colour; it's so perfect for exquisite and vibrant weddings! We're huge fans of purple and 'radiant orchid' puts a real modern kick into your typical mauve and lilac wedding tones. Check out our radiant orchid inspired wedding style...
Radiant orchid is a stunning mix of pink and purples, which is fabulous as it means you can complement the hue with pink and purple accents. Make orchid your base colour and then play around with addition colours within the same palette to create wedding style with flair and depth. Gold and silver tones will infuse the decor with a touch of glamour, or you could decorate with a mixture of white orchids for a relaxed beachy vibe...
Coloured lighting is a gorgeous way to incorporate radiant orchid tones into your wedding, without being too literal and covering your room with actual orchids. A purple glow will warm the room and create a romantic ambiance that will look extra special with chandeliers and flickering candles...

Introduce a watercolour wedding theme into your wedding and get ready to roll up your DIY sleeves with these beautiul and oh-so-easy ideas that will transform your wedding from a blank canvas into a true work of art.

Dip-dye white napkins to create chic watercolour table settings, and whip out your paint set to try your hand at your very own watercolour place cards.

Make sure you have fun with it.
You can also tackle the DIY with your table numbers! Purchase small canvases and outline, then fill in, your table numbers with your favourite watercolour shades. Don't worry if it's not perfect! Watercolour is all about the imperfections!

Blackberries have a decadent air of luxury about them and their rich, deep purple hues are perfect for beautiful wedding style. Summer is the season for fruits and berries and a wonderful time to host a blackberry inspired wedding celebration abundant with wine, food and love. Our blackberry theme is a classy outdoor soiree, inspired by by decadence and old-world glamour with a modern twist. Enjoy xx
Lighten up your style and keep the decor fresh by mixing up your shades of purple. Complement the dark and rich hue of the blackberry with lighter mauve and maroon shades of purple - they will be a beautiful contrast. Silver and gold both look stunning with purple, so choose your preference and add some opulent metallic touches. Blackberries and champagne go together like you and your beau, so treat your guests little blackberry champagne cocktails to start the night.
Purple is a popular wedding colour, and it looks even better when you a have a theme in which it stems from. Scatter blackberries into your wedding decor to ensure consistency. Blackberry cupcakes are an excellent way to finish dessert and send guests home with a jar of blackberry jam as a tasty bomboniere gift.

As we reflected on Remembrance Day and of one Australia’s most important national occasions, we were inspired by the beauty of the poppy; the simple emblem that salutes the memory of those who made sacrifices during the first World War. The striking flower that decorated the war-torn earth is of a rich red, the inspiration behind this styling concept. Vintage and gold elements remind us of the prosperity that was a result of the soldier’s bravery and the red accents reflect the poppy, the symbolism of rebirth after devastation.The soldier's spirit is beautiful inspiration for a wedding concept, as it reminds us to celebrate life and freedom and to cherish our loved ones.
No colour looks quite as glamorous with red as gold, a colour palette that invokes warmth and is also perfect for the upcoming winter months. Soothe the chilly air with champagne that ignites a fire in guests’ bellies and rich winter food such as these slow cooked pears in red wine. Yum! Jewels and crystals, like the ones encrusted on these stunning Marchesa clutch bags are opulent and deep ruby stones are the perfect dazzling addition to any red styling concept. A simple poppy bouquet is effortlessly elegant, tied together with a few perfect poppies placed in your bridesmaids’ hair.
The best thing about red is that it generally looks amazing on all skin tones. If you have dark skin and red hair, a red dress and a pop of red lip will leave you a smouldering bride or bridesmaid and the hue is notoriously elegant and expensive on pale blondes. As for redheads, don’t listen to the rules. It works, trust us – we have seen Emma Stone and Nicole Kidman look to-die-for in red gowns and eye-catching red pouts. Finish the look with a pair of signature red-soled Louboutins. Just consider them an life-long investment; who knows…maybe your daughter will have the same shoe size as you one day.

Silver and gold have long exuded opulence and glamour as rare metals that sparkle and shine. Often we are asked 'which is your favourite, silver or gold?', as people tend to wear one or the other. These silly limitations are all changing! Silver and gold look extra glam when paired together and are a stunning theme for your wedding. Each colour highlights the other to create a wedding palette fit for a Queen!
If you're decorating in this chic show-stopping theme we recommend your keep the rest of your colour palette neutral to really allow these hues to pop! Creams and blacks will keep the style refined and perfect for a stylish affair! Take the opportunity to get creative and pick up some gold and silver spray paint from your local craft store - the possibilities are endless! You could spray frames, furniture, ornaments, cutlery - anything you think could use a metallic touch! Pair silver and gold accessories together for high-fashion bridal style and ensure the champagne keeps on flowing...

We are swooning over the sweetest combination of mint and lace, so feminine and pretty and ideal for weddings all year round. The fresh colours lend themselves to lovely shabby-chic or vintage theme, with lace detail inspiration collected from decades past. Soft beiges, burlap and twine infuse a little rustic prettiness into the gorgeous styling, creating a wedding day that can be tailored with heartfelt DIY details.
Not only will bridesmaids look super pretty in delicate lace bridesmaid dresses, but they're so on-trend that they will be able to wear them again and again. They're light and airy for the upcoming warmer months and will complement soft bouquets of minty hues such as lambs ear, white roses and ethereal Baby's Breath. Wrap the bottom of the bouquets in hessian or burlap and finish with twine to bring the vintage rustic style together.
This theme is fabulous for DIY ideas - lace is so versatile and be used in so many pretty ways! We love these cute tea-light candle holders; perfect to scatter along your tables for a romantic evening glow. Simply glue lace on the outside of jars and pop the candles in the middle - they look so gorg but couldn't be easier! Paper doilies are great to use as place mats or to decorate stationery with, be creative!

Salt in the air, sand in your hair...seaside weddings are infallibly gorgeous. The glistening ocean, sparkling sand and beaming sky create and incredible backdrop for your nuptials and as the sun sets, the rolling waves will join you as you continue your celebrations at a beach side reception. Take off your shoes, let down your hair and be swept up in the romance by the sea...
In the months leading up to your wedding, spend time with your partner collecting artifacts from the beach. Beautiful shells, driftwood and sand in jars can be used across your wedding decor and collecting them yourselves will be extra special. We love the use of oyster and mussel shells in wedding decor - they're a little different to your typical shells, and exquisitely beautiful when combined with soft blues and crisp whites.
An abundance of lanterns hanging from the ceiling will create a modern feature that is seaside appropriate. We love a palette of neutrals and soft blues to reflect the pretty colours of the seaside. If surfing is your passion, paint a surfboard with your hubby that welcomes guests - you can display it in your home or beach house following the big day and treasure it forever.

Hello yellow! We are embracing the big healthy dose of zesty zingy citrus infusion in this vibrant wedding style! Pops of yellow are nothing less than perfect for the upcoming (that's right, it's coming!) spring and summer seasons. There ain't much that makes a person happier than some gorgeous yellow lovin' - the colours will reflect your beaming smile and hopefully the beaming rays of sunshine on your big day!
Yellow is definitely a happy, carefree colour, so let your wedding style reflect it. We say don't take it too seriously and mis-match personal little details that will make the day YOU. A mixture of prints, fabrics and blooms will create a homely, natural effortlessly beautiful vibe!
Keep your style light, fresh and not over-whelming with a generous dose of whites and grays. These neutrals complement yellow beautifully, without detracting from its uplifting hues. This wedding style is all about free spirits - bicycles, fresh flowers and plenty of DIY projects will warm your vibe.
Try sticking to your neutral and yellow hues, but mixing up your patterns for some fun variety. Polka dots, stripes and chevron will look super adorbs together. The same goes with your lovely flowers; instead of a block colour and type, mix different flora together to balance the colours and create some gorgeous bouquets and centrepieces!

Burgundy and aubergine are fabulous complementing colours that go together fabulously in the wintertime. They are rich, warm and inviting, with a hint of royal flair depending on how you style the hues. We've chosen to go a little indie rustic, mixing glam gold and silver candelabra's with the organic style of hessian and flower garlands. Burgundy and aubergine are a glam take on your usual purples...this classic palette is here to stay.
Get your hunting caps on (they look fabulous) and visit your local op shops for mismatched vases and other trinkets you can incorporate into your rustic royal burgundy and aubergine wedding scheme. We love that house numbers have been used as table numbers here - a cool way to integrate glam metallics with natural, pre-loved elements.
This theme is more indie elegance than your typical, sparkly wedding (not that we don't love an overload of sequins here in the Brides of Adelaide office), which means you probably like to do things a little differently. Instead of a guest book, have your guests use a permanent marker to write on a globe of the world. They can write their names, leave a message and circle where they think you must see in the world. Perfect for wannabe travelers.

Who would have thought that Delftware would be making it big? The pretty blue and white pottery patterns are traditionally made in and around Delft in the Netherlands and most would be familiar with the lovely intricate patterns that originated way back in the 1600s. Now it's 2013 and fashion powerhouses Valentino, Tony Burch, Alberta Ferretti and Dior have all sent the delft inspired couture parading down their runways. We were inspired by the blue and white colours and classic delft patterns and decided to put together pretty dutch-esque wedding style.
We've used varying shades of Monaco blue to represent the Delft pattern without taking it too far. The colours are subdued, elegant and beautiful - blue truly does flatter everyone. Trawl ebay and second-hand stores for Delft pottery to use as vases, serving plates and decorations. A beautiful vintage touch will harmonise the styling.
Incorporate some DIY elements into your style for a lovely personalised feel. Use flowers to create gorgeous carefree flower hair wreaths for your flower girls, and a vintage blue book is a wonderful cushion alternative for your page boy. We love the idea of a Delft tile guest book - each guest can sign their name and a sweet message for the couple on each tile. Beautiful.

The softest, dreamiest hues are on offer today, a wedding made entirely of sugary pastels and the freshest of flowers. These colours are the prettiest wedding palette, as soft lilacs, minty turquoises and frosty pinks combine to transform your big day into a wonderland. Every element is fresh and light, the perfect scene for a spring time wedding amongst the new seasonal blooms and sparkling sunshine.
We absolutely adore these homemade water labels, the cutest refreshments to sip on during a warm ceremony. A fan placed on each chair will also keep guests comfortable and look oh-so-pretty. Instead of throwing confetti, why not provide guests with little bags of pastel coloured pom pom confetti? They're so soft and playful and will complement the gorgeousness of your sugary styling. The sweetest bomboniere gift of all is a jar of honey - naturally sweet and South Australian sourced, it is a wedding favour that can be lovingly enjoyed.

Lovely, lovely lilac. So sweet and pretty, it will forever be a favourite colour choice for weddings. The delicate colour is wonderfully accented with shades of pastel blue - who could ask for more romantic palette? The ultimate balance of elegance and playful youthfulness, lilac is a wedding colour that, season after season, never does seem to go out of style.
Team your pastels with feminine elements to maximise the beauty of your colours. An abundance of flora, such as lilac (naturally), hydrangeas, scablosa perennial blue, purple thalictrum and scilla hispanica, will look beautiful and soft throughout your styling. Continue the daintiness with lovely fabrics and Marie-Antoinette inspired delicacies.
Sunday weddings are becoming increasingly popular, and this wedding style would be wonderfully suited to a Sunday afternoon gathering. A high-tea enjoyed by guests in their Sunday best would be relaxing amongst the soothing effects of lilac and pastels. Fresh and soft, the colours look best when complemented with whites and the natural beauty of the outdoors. The Botanic Garden's Restaurant, with it's white interior and large windows that overlook stunning greenery, would be the perfect location.

If primary colours immediately take you back to your school days then you clearly haven't been staying up-to-date the big 2013 trends hitting the runways. Designer's have been raiding the crayon box to produce some totally cool combinations of show-stopping red, bright yellow and cobalt blue. Spring 2013 collections saw the likes of Chanel, Stella McCartney, Valentino and Gucci return to classroom basics with styling and couture takes on primary colours. We love this bold trend so much, we're translating it into chic statement-making wedding style. Enjoy!
Monochromatic hits of the bright hues is the best way to approach this type of bold styling. Colour-blocking is modern, makes an impact and allows you to mix and match different pieces together. This will ensure decorating is a lot easier - often it is difficult to find primary colour decor. It isn't hard, however, to match a white pair of heels with red nails, throw on a bright necklace or to carry beautiful block colour bouquets. Since you're colour blocking, keep your shapes and colours simple. A bouquet in one bright flower is enough to make an impact - avoid small detail or your styling could end up looking messy.
Simple, bright, vivid and timeless, primary colours are constants in a world where colours are coming and going (a mixture of browns, oranges and olive greens certainly haven't returned in full force from the 70's, have they?) They the base hues of our entire colour palette after all. There's still something so contemporary about this style - especially the monochromatic interpretation made by current designers and the almost 1960's approach on primary colour styling. Whether you decorate in full force, or accessorise with vibrant red, yellow and blue bits and pieces, there's no doubt your guests heads will be turning at the sight of such a beautifully bold decor choice.
Now that the fashion world says that it's okay to binge on primary colours, just remember that everything is wonderful...in moderation. Break up your bright style with a white backdrop and accents. Even a touch of black here and there will keep your decor stylish instead of over-bearing. With that in mind, go crazy! This type of wedding isn't for the conservative folk who tend to hold back! Make that decor pop!

Spring is on its way, right? RIGHT? (Can you sense the desperation in our tone?) Okay, so there's still three months left of winter to shiver through...almost 2.5 if you want to get technical...which means brides planning a Spring and Summer wedding should definitely have their skates on! We love bright and vibrant colours in a wedding - sometimes they are such a welcome and refreshing change from the 'classic' white, black, ivory, silver etc. We've thrown some geometrical shapes and patterns into this styling inspiration for the modern bride who wants to play around with futuristic elements.
Even though we've chosen a large variety of shades, we've still stayed within the same colour palette. Pinks, yellows, blues and greens are the contrasting feature of this wedding. It's a little Modern Bohemian - combining geometric shapes and futuristic patterns with soft flowers and mismatched styling. Plenty of bright icy desserts, fresh fruits and glasses of chilled champagne are on offer for guests to mingle and enjoy the relaxed and playful vibe of the day.
This style of wedding so fabulously DIY - if you love to get crafty then you're going to have a lot of fun creating plenty of vibrant decorations and bits and pieces for your special. Raid the craft store for coloured cardboard, paint, glitter, string, boxes and jars to create personal touches. We love this diamond hanging garland that is SO easy to do at home! Simply print a diamond box template (we've found a perfect one here) onto different colours of cardboard and assemble them. Paint one side of the diamond with glue and dip it into glitter of your choice for a little sparkle and then thread string through the boxes and secure with glue. Easy and they'll look gorg!
If you've created the garland and you're looking to match the rest of your decor, why not buy some plastic skewers and glue the diamonds onto the end of them - voila! Your own super chic drink stirrers (way more modern than a mini umbrella!). Don't forget to decorate with fresh flowers and treat each guest to colourful box of lollies as sweet bomboniere.

When we heard that the Pantone Colour of the Year for 2013 was Emerald Green we were, to be honest, a little uninspired. The dark shade of green didn’t exactly have us leaping out of our chairs to eagerly put together a wedding style blog post. BUT. This was before Cameo The Label released their much-anticipated 2013 collection “The Clearing” last week. The gorgeous enchanted print suddenly had us conjuring images in our minds of rich emerald weddings with a botanical twist. A chic way to put some quirky character into Pantone’s emerald and incorporate the hue into your wedding.
We love the rainforest kaleidoscope pattern across “The Clearing” collection, the overgrown ferns, lush emerald greens and the hint of sunlight peeking trough the treetops. Tarzan meet Jane, Tarzan marry Jane…in style. Make emerald come alive with the use of exotic botanic elements throughout your styling. Skip the classic bouquet and use a variety of ferns as your flora, they look amazing with whites and gold. The thing about a botanic theme is that it can be oh so amazingly elegant, we think of the extravagance of an old English Hunting Lodge. Rich greens, mahogany’s and an abundance of opulent style.
Apothecary jars in various styles and shapes will become your best friend. Place them along your tables with various ferns and mismatched plants to create the crazy and cool work area of an experimental botanist. Centrepieces can be made with larger apothecary jars with soil and miniature plants in them – almost like a mini greenhouse. Wild, organic and so different it’s chic.
Botanic themes inherently have a classy edge, a characteristic owed to the innately royal connotations of emerald green and the rich gold and mahogany hues that go with it. Do not be afraid to experiment with rainforest glam and mix wild elements with sophisticated pieces. Host a wedding that is an extension of your urbane self in an ambience infused with style.

We all know that wedding invitations are the first impression that your guests will have of your wedding and will often be stuck on the fridge for months – so they need to look nothing less than fabulous! These days, wedding invites are getting more and more creative, couples are thinking out of the box and delivering personalised creations to guests’ letterboxes. Ensure consistency from conception to completion with paper goods that reflect a theme from the invites to the menus, place cards and bomboniere.
Piipod Design creates some of the most unique, quirky and beautiful wedding paper goods that we have seen, custom-made to represent you and your fiancé as a couple. We love this bright and vibrant citrus theme to brighten up the upcoming chilly winter months. The citrus colours and images appear on the invitation, through to the place cards (oranges!) and bomboniere packages. Personal, different and oh so cute!
This sweet Candy Store wedding theme is another example of how you can carry a concept right through your entire stationery. The invitations will instil excitement in guests as they receive a fun and interesting invite to share in the wedding celebration. Bold RSVPs and wishing wells are included and bound together with red and white tassels and you can showcase guests’ names on bright vintage-style place cards.
Yum – candy bomboniere in a personalised jar is a great way to ‘share the love’ and satisfy your guests’ sweet tooth! The possibilities are endless and the results are always so fantastic when you carry a consistent theme that comes straight from the heart.
This natural and earthy nautical theme is perfect for a beach wedding, the rustic string and thick cardboard goes beautiful with the soft sand and rolling waves. It also shows the other ways you can be creative with your wedding stationery - wishing well invites can be in the form of gift tags and bomboniere boxes can match. Alternatively, send guests home with a personalised gift bag as token of your appreciation for joining you on your special day by the sea shore.

Amongst the lush, green surroundings of the garden, love blossoms. Combining a palette of moss green, magenta and white, luxe contrasts are created for the ideal tribute to the natural beauty of the outdoors. A whimsical aisle is formed from toadstool stem-like white leather ottomans, providing guests with the perfect 360 degree view of the bride and groom amidst impeccable surroundings.
Natural materials are faultlessly interwoven with the mad made. From serviettes disguised as delightful bows to a moss ring pillow and dainty floral centrepieces, this concept allows for both quirky and traditional elements of the wedding style to have an essential presence. A bold floral neck adornment is an edgy and modern alternative to the traditional bouquet for brides who want their hands free throughout the day.
Each element is considered with meticulous consideration of the backdrop. American inspired décor elements such as the increasingly popular Adirondack chairs are featured at the signing / place finder table for a modern, garden-party interpretation. This setup is embellished with upturned vases filled with pebbles and topped with wheat grass rounds. It also toys with the concept of bringing the indoors out, through the inclusion of lighting elements and a free standing piece of art, drawing focus to the table itself.
A forest of colour, exploring use of different vessels, textures and height is created on the table to truly encapsulate the garden feel. Ferns, long stems, bunches of blooms and varying sizes of glasses create a miniature paradise along the table. Pebbles are fresh cut limes are also dotted throughout the table to captivate the senses of each guest.
Whilst the natural elements of this concept make it truly unique, bridal party accessories need not be overlooked; intricate, oversized and beautifully eye-catching pieces are called for, with a perfectly delicious floral fragrance to match. Furthermore, this playful setting calls for playful accessorising from all involved and the groom’s subtle tie change from ceremony to reception is extant in this detail-rich wedding wonderland.

The days are getting shorter, the leaves are changing colour and we’ve found ourselves wrapping a warm, soft cardy around our shoulders in the mornings – yes autumn is officially upon us! We love a warm palette of burnt oranges, aubergines and marigolds, inspired by the natural autumn surroundings. A blend of oranges with earthy woods, crystal and modern luxury bring nature together with glamorous style.
Orange has recently been described as the ‘new neutral’ after appearing as the hottest colour trend for designers’ 2013 resort collections. Designers have embraced a variety of different orange hues, moving away from 2012’s tangerine obsession into earthier versions paired with browns and natural shades. The addition of vibrancy will brighten up the skies as we prepare for the winter months. Orange can look opulent and expensive when accessorised with gold and other warm colours and textures. Pack a punch with a statement making orange bridesmaid gown or let the flowers do the talking; the cooler months also provide stunning opportunities for fresh flowers in marigold hues.
Consistency in the colour scheme begins with invitations, and continues into every element, from the fresh flowers topping the cake to decorations and paper goods at the wedding. A warm rich palette of balloons would look fantastic floating in the autumn breeze and pinks and red can be utilised throughout the styling to reflect the changing colours as the months descend into winter.

Ambience is the elixir in wedding styling - similar to set dressing, it brings all the design elements to life. 'My home will have no windows, floors nor doors, nor bricks or mortar. My only home is in your arms and nowhere else.' – Rob Ryan. Drawing inspiration from a rob ryan artwork, this concept centers on finding home in another.
The colour palette is primarily shades of white with small accents of silver and a blue green. Whilst the concept is ‘home’, it is not the home of your grandparents or of your childhood. It is a slick contemporary interpretation with clean lines and a clean palette. With a palette so simple, it is largely left up to the details to carry the concept. With white roses punctuated by bright succulents, blooming in unexpected vessels and place cards infused with a common household item, this concept holds many surprises.

With Easter only a week away we thought we would embrace the festivities (yes, we do an enjoy an excuse to eat chocolate!) and share some Easter inspired wedding style with you. A mixture of pretty pastel hues and freshly cut flowers were the canvas for our inspiration, based on the innocent and delicate palette one associates with this special time of year. For us, Easter is a holiday that involves family and relaxation and so our Easter wedding style is homely and intimate, with an array of mismatched elements that create a warm and personal vibe.
The birthstone in April is the beautiful diamond, so it is mandatory that Easter style needs a little sparkle! Sprinkle diamantes along the table or add glamour to your outfit with some opulent accessories. In order to stay pastel glam, we have stuck to various shades of blue, pink and lilac; sugary colours as sweet as delicious Easter eggs themselves.
A mismatched collection of vintage crockery, fabrics, vases and freshly picked flowers only add character to the comfortable home-style theme. The aim is unstructured, fresh and playful so don’t overthink your styling! The elements don’t need to match perfectly so as long as you stick to your pastel parfait of soft hues the end result will be light and sweet. These coloured oval candles are adorable and will illuminate the tables with a romantic glow and a dress made from layers of tulle will have you looking good enough to eat.

It’s fuchsia, but not as you know it. Bright, fresh and sexy we have re-vamped this playful colour for a vibrant modern wedding. 2013 runways showcased clean faces void of makeup aside from a striking pop of fuchsia on models’ lips. This inspiration has seen us begin our styling with a blank canvas, adding eye-catching fuchsia elements to create an up-to-date look. It’s all about fresh femininity with a cool edge to your usual shades of pink.
Deliver a tropical punch to wedding décor with contrasting white and fuchsia décor. A slight hint of aqua accessories and voila, your guests are in the (oh so chic) Caribbean. We suggest you don’t get too literal and decorate your bouquets and centrepieces with an array of actual fuchsias – it’s about making an impact with modern colour.
Colour blocking with white and fuchsia is a stylish way to decorate your wedding - they're contrasting shades that balance each other, particularly if you use white as your base and fuchsia for the accents. A pair of bright heels with a white dress, or fuchsia lips like the recent runway models, will tie your bridal fashion into the styling. Has our case of fuchsia fever rubbed off on you yet?

Lavender is so pretty and feminine with a lovely effortless quality about it, a few stems tied together with ribbon or string amongst very relaxed styling looks so naturally beautiful. The colour is sweet and soft, perfect for a bright and fresh wedding of classic and rustic elements. Reflect the darling simplicity of the flower in other aspects; fresh whites and recycled bits and bobs highlight the purple hue in all its unfussy glory.
Lavender is known not only for being ornamentally beautiful, but also for its soothing effects. A blanket of calming aroma with sweet overtones will relax everyone involved on your wedding day and keep spirits high. Fill empty mason jars with freshly picked bunches of lavender and use mis-matched ribbons to tie a sprinkling of lavender across your white styling.
Lavender toss is an environmentally friendly alternative to confetti and the soft purples have a fairy-tale quality in photographs. Wheat colours and lace work seamlessly with the organic style of the lavender plant and keep the men’s suits light and fresh, finishing with a simple lavender boutonniere.

Gold was the first metal widely known to humans – and we’ve been obsessed with it ever since! Its discovery was made throughout time in many different locations all over the world and nearly everyone who found it was understandably impressed with its natural beauty and brilliant lustre.
Opulent, decadent, luxurious – these are all words that spring to mind when planning a wedding dripping in metallic hues of gold. Your wedding day is precious, so why not infuse it with the shine of this statement making precious metal.
Dip into gold and paint your wedding with a timeless elegance. We think gold looks fabulous and sophisticated when balanced with neutrals such as white and earthy colours, a sparkling combination that is the epitome of classic style. Too many colours will take the look from classy to OTT so keep your palette simple.
Diamonds are a girls best friend, right? Embellish with jewels and crystals for the ultimate in decadence that is eye-catching, yet elegant. Make the most of dazzling metallics by incorporating them all over the styling board, from golden accessories to a chic table setting and shiny metal cutlery. Treat yourself, and guests, to the enviable gold treatment.

Daisies are pretty and sweet blooms with a wonderfully effortless quality about them. One can’t help but imagine a barefoot bride running carefree through a field, chasing her groom with a chain of daisies delicately weaved in her hair. In terms of wedding décor, daises are bright, happy and one of the most versatile flowers due to their simple nature.
We love daisies combined with rustic elements; placed in jars and teacups and various other mismatched vintage items. The idea of this styling is not to be perfect, but to create a cheerful and homely feel with pre-loved fabrics, heirlooms and a natural colour palette.

Join us on a love affair with soft pinks and crisp whites, a romantic and fresh colour palette reminiscent of a garden party hosted by the graceful Marie Antoinette. Pretty and soft, this styling is perfect for an afternoon occasion where women in floaty frocks sip on chilled champagne, arm in arm with their loved ones beneath blue skies and hanging pink lanterns.
Use white as your foundation colour and add subtle pink accents for feminine styling hues that work harmoniously to complement each other. Colour blocking in shades of white will make an elegant statement, white walls, furniture, linen and crockery make a beautiful canvas. A wonderful way to add colour is with the use of fresh flora; peonies, David Austin roses, blossoms and hydrangeas all bloom in exquisite varieties of pinks. Food is a delicious way to incorporate a splash of colour with yummy pink sweets and meringues followed by refreshing pink lemonade and champagne.
Incorporating the gentle beauty of the day into your bridal wear is a simple way to unite consistency across your styling. We think every woman looks charming in pink, whether you are dancing in a pair of pastel heels with ruffles or sporting dewy cheeks from a soft pink blush.

Bohemian weddings encompass a mis-matched array of boho beauty in rich colours and interesting textures. We adore the carefree and laidback style of this vibrant wedding theme and how couples manage to creatively infuse their love into every little aspect of the styling. There are no rules when it comes to a bohemian wedding; pre-loved and new pieces come together to create a homely and natural space.
Earthy colours set the base for boho styling, allowing a natural canvas to build and build upon with a combination of bright colours and patterns. Vintage fabrics are charming and can be used as table runners, place mats, flags or any other kind of unique decoration. Coloured bottles and glass will brighten your table settings and gold goes perfectly with the indian-esque bohemian theme.
The relaxed nature of a bohemian wedding means you can have fun with your bouquet and wedding choices; a variety of colours and types can be mixed together, from bridal poppies to succulents. For creative couples who enjoy the unconventional, the boho wedding is the perfect way to express your eccentricities with family and friends on a day to remember.

If there is one tip you can give your husband before your big day it is this: “honey, you need to buy a skinny suit.” A slim cut suit is modern, edgy and very, very sleek. It is not just a passing phase either, a trend soon to be gone by the winter months - the skinny suit has slowly been working its way into our wardrobe for years and has finally hit cult status. When accessorising the sophisticated slim cut it is important to remember to keep your details in proportion; experimenting with shades and patterns is ideal but chunky shoes and a wide belt isn’t. Keep it simple with a contrasting pocket square, a slim watch and a skinny tie. If you can convince your husband to be to read an instruction manual (for once in his life) ensure it’s our skinny suit styling guide and he won’t be able to go wrong.

Can't get enough of the feminine and mystical shades of the sea? Good news! Turquoise is fresh, invigorating and on trend right now. We were inspired by the gorgeous shades of green and blue on the runway at Monique Lhuillier’s Spring 2013 show, particularly the breezy and elegant mint dress featured below. Shades of turquoise and mint look fabulously crisp with white and will have a calming effect on your big day. Pastel nail polish and makeup was also seen all over the runways, a look that we ourselves are sporting in the office (hello, aqua nails!). Minty décor is pretty and soft, try subtle additions such as frosted mint chairs and hanging lanterns, the colour also looks beautiful with bouquets of baby’s breath. Minty fresh!

Bold and striking, chartreuse is one of our favourite colours right now; it reminds us of a Splice ice-block on a gorgeous summer’s day. The neon shade that pops with look-at-me glamour is all over the fashion scene, from nail polish to wedding dresses and bridesmaid shoes to accessories. Incorporate a splash of yellow lime into your wedding with colourful trimmings; less is more when it comes to this bright palette. A mini Glasshouse candle in Coconut Lime is a delightful bomboniere idea for guests to take home after one-too-many Midori Splice cocktails. Chartreuse is show stopping with hints of silver and sparkle, perfect for ultra-glamorous wedding décor.
