Magenta and Lemon

Picking a colour or theme for your wedding day can be daunting at the start. You’ve got to work out something that will appeal to both parties and also something you can carry through from your ceremony to reception. Indeed you can even start with your save the dates and invitations.

Often, couples decide to go with classic colour combinations because they are reliable and they will look stunning no matter what the venue or season. And there is a lot to be said for sticking with something universally chic.

That said, if you’re willing to have a little fun and dip your toe into the colour wheel a little more, then consider a vivid combination like magenta and yellow.

Not for the faint of heart, this super vibrant colour palette is ideal for those who adore vivid colours and while it’s ideal for high summer, it’s also a combination you can call on to inject some brightness into a autumn or winter wedding too.

With all of that in mind, here’s some visual inspiration for you to get the ideas flowing. Don’t hesitate to get in touch with me directly if you wish to chat about any aspect of your wedding planning and décor.

 

Bouquet

With most brides going for a white or ivory dress, the contrast of a brightly coloured bouquet will look simply stunning. You don’t have to go with exclusively magenta and yellow blooms. Consider popping in some greenery and shades of both colours.

 

On the table

Play around with different colour table cloths. Go for the full on bright of a magenta table cloth and accent it with yellow, or try something like a yellow and white chevron table runner and magenta napkins. Got for vivid and bold floral centrepieces and inject some citrus colour with lemons interspersed. Play around with shades of pink and yellow to so you have a spectrum of colours on display

 

Around the room

The mantra of this colour scheme is go bold or go home, so don’t be afraid to embrace it. Think of having some giant balloons, pom poms suspended on string. Have some backdrops made of ribbon or hang up some magenta and lemon Chinese lanterns. One of the most dramatic things you can do is get some draping in the shades of magenta and yellow as this will really give the venue an atmospheric feel. Accent with cushions, throws and soft furnishings to complete the look.

Cake

Finally don’t forget the cake. Again you can just go for pops of colour here on your cake, such as a white or naked cake with magenta and lemon style flowers or details. Or go full on with Ombré buttercream going from magenta to yellow or vice versa. Or why not have a sweet table set up in the colours of magenta and yellow of guests to help themselves.

Fruit and Veg Wedding Centrepieces

When it comes to your wedding table centrepieces, flowers tend to be the first thing that comes to mind. And while they might not always be the main focus, generally speaking there are flowers in there somewhere. Well if you’d like to have something different feature in your theme, then shy not think about fruits and veg.

Yes, I said fruit and veg!

The beauty of these is that, firstly they are generally more budget friendly and they can fit with a whole host of themes. From elegant, to rustic, to vintage and even modern. Plus you can pick items that are matching the season and you can of course pair with flowers for a really eye-catching look.

With all of that in mind, here’s some visual inspiration for you, to get the ideas flowing. Don’t hesitate to get in touch with me directly if you wish to chat about any aspect of your wedding planning and décor.

 

 

Fruit with flowers

If you want to keep things elegant, then pairing fruit with flowers is a great choice. Look for fruits that can sit perfectly within the flowers you’ve chosen and compliment them to a tee. Having a few pieces of fruit peeping out of your floral centrepieces will be a real surprise for your guests. Or why not have cut pieces of citrus in glass vases pointing outwards, with blooms on the top? If you’re having ling tables then a mixed fruit and floral garland will look stunning.

Tropical

It’s got to be pineapples, pineapples and more pineapples for a truly tropical feel. But don’t forget to throw in some other exotic fruits, like mangoes, passion fruits and papayas? And why not have fun by having some opened fruit in the centrepieces for guests to nibble on too? It’s a great ice breaker and lots of fun.

Rustic

While fruit can be elegant it can also be rustic too, especially when paired with wooden accents. Simple fruits like oranges or lemons in wooden crates or boxes will look stunning for a rustic theme. Sit your chosen fruits in elegant bowls or have silver jugs overflowing with grapes for a really lush looks reminiscent of the Tudor days, that’s still got a rustic edge. Have fun with colours and go for vibrant shades in the summer and look for darker purples and greens in the winter months.

Veg  

When you think of veg centrepieces, you generally imagine it would fit with a more rustic or shabby chic style of wedding theme, but that’s not always the case. Purple cabbage or artichoke can look quite elegant as can asparagus. But that said, having veg as your centrepieces is about having some earthy fun, so why fight it? Think seasonally too if you can for example pumpkins and squash in autumn will look fabulous.

Vintage Wedding Theme

The wonderful thing about a vintage wedding theme, is that it can apply to practically any time period in history. It’s not specific to one era, so you can really have fun and hone in on one time period that you like, or pull from many to make it your own.

Often, a vintage wedding theme means spending some time rummaging in attics or going to auctions where you can pick up some amazing finds for next to nothing. Think gramophones, china, old weighing scales, typewriters and even antique suitcases.

With all of that in mind, here’s some visual inspiration for you, to get the ideas flowing. Don’t hesitate to get in touch with me directly if you wish to chat about any aspect of your wedding planning and décor.

 

Attire

Start as you mean to go on and bring a touch of the vintage to your wedding attire. Think 1950s style tea length dresses, or carefully embellished 1920s inspired gowns with Gatsby style head pieces. Why not go back further and channel your inner Jane Austin with an Empire line gown. You could also ask your guests to embrace your theme and wear something with a nod to the vintage to it as well.

 

Transport

Most of us choose to have a snazzy car for our wedding day, but why not seek out a genuine vintage car to bring you to the ceremony and reception? Think beyond just the luxury Rolls Royce and consider vintage VW camper vans, Cadillac’s, vintage cars that go back to the 1920s/30s or why not get a vintage style bus for your guests?

 

On the Table

There’s so many ways to bring a touch of vintage into your wedding table centrepieces very simply with vintage style jugs, lanterns, china and teapots. You don’t have to go for those more obvious choices either. Why not use old books, vintage style cans and jars, even an old typewriter or weighing scales would look stunning too.

 

Around the Room

Pieces like gramophones make ideal props for dotting around your wedding venue. Why not dress them up with florals? Stack vintage style suitcases around the room. Why not put that vintage dresser to use and have it as your cake or dessert table? Or if you really want to make a splash why not have flat shoes or flip flops for the guests to pop on at dancing time and let them leave their heels in the dresser? If you’re having something for guests to put their wedding cards in, why not use a vintage birdcage or retro postbox?
