It's Tipsy Tuesday!
Welcome to Tipsy Tuesday. The day when I share with you some of best kept secrets and advice all related to wedding stationery! If you've got a burning question, leave it in the comments below. So who's ready for some kick-arse advice? Let's get started!
Today’s topic is colour, a favourite of mine. Why? Because colour evokes feeling and emotion and really moves your audience. Ever noticed how on Valentine's Day the colour red or pink is everywhere? Well, red and pink create a feeling of passion and sexiness and romance! What I'm going to talk about today is how you can embrace colour to create mood at your event and I'm going to give you some cool tools to help you create the Perfect Wedding Colour Scheme.
Every colour has been popular at some point over the years. There will always be the classic timeless combinations of black and white, and lately rose gold, blush and gold have gone crazy. Recently we've seen elegant rustic neutral colours but it wasn't too long ago was all bold pops of hot pink and orange! It's important to not be afraid of using colour. It can be subtle touches or it can be bold, however no matter what colour you choose, how you use it counts.
So how do you pick the perfect colour palette? As a couple think about your favourite colours, or the colours of your favourite footy team, or pick colours from your favuorite fashion brand. Tiffany blue for example has been hugely popular. You can the colours in a bold way (from bridesmaid dresses to flowers to table cloths to sashes and beyond) or you may like to use only subtle hints, like a simple ribbon or an accent flower in your centrepieces.
If you want your bridal party to wear the colour, make sure it flatters all their skin tones. Also, consider the groomsmen – will they feel comfortable wearing pink vests and purple ties?
If you love a colour that will date, think fuchsia pink, bright citrus colours or bold patterns, use accents. That way when you look back at your photos, it won't be overwhelming and you will still look at your day knowing you made a great decision. (And your poor groomsmen won’t be dressed head to toe in shades of hot pink and purple)! :)
Consider the availability of the chosen colour in fabric, flowers and for your stationery card and paper options. If you like an ‘on trend’ colour, think royal blue, rose gold, emerald green or lemon, keep in mind that often those colours are hard, if not impossible to obtain in card stock.
And most importantly... Listen to your suppliers – they understand colour tones and what colour palettes work. Let them guide you into a stunning colour palette.
So here's your Tuesday Tip: Keep it soft and subtle or bold and bright, but whatever you choose, embrace a little colour in your life!
