I love it when a couple grab a theme and really run with it. Bright colours is such great fun, and when embraced completely, can be a real winner on your wedding day.
And your flowers are an obvious area to bring this theme to life.
It can work in a modern setting, with blocked colour roses, hydrangea or almost any single variety flower. With your bridesmaids in colourful, patterned dresses, each could carry flowers in a set colour, picking out the tones from the dress fabric. Or mix the colours up and go with a more modern take on the bouquet – long and narrow, with a bright coloured hydrangea collar. You can really go to town on your tables, with sliced fruit-lined vases, or stacked fishbowls with vibrant orchids inside.
It works well in a more relaxed setting too, giving the occasion a real country, garden feel. With loosely tied bouquets of different shaped blooms mixed in with textured foliage, and jugs or jars of flowers for the table. This works especially well in a marque or barn setting, blending with the outside surroundings whilst also popping out from them!
Which ever style direction you choose to go, make sure you really do go with it – not a wishy-washy hint of colour, but BOOM in-your-face bright!
