Wedding Trends; colours & schemes
I'm sure you already have a picture in your head as to how your wedding day will be. You must have imagined over and over what the dress will be like, what your bridesmaids will be wearing and what the flowers, tables, button holes, music, favours............will be like.
But when it actually comes to organising the big day, your ideas can be overwhelming. You may need a little assistance to make your vision a reality, that you can enjoy!
Looking at Wedding trends are a useful source of inspiration. You of course do not need to follow the trend, but can take ideas to suit you.
Popular colours and schemes for 2015 seem to involve muted tones, pretty pastels and natural greens, hinting towards outdoor themes of nature and ever popular vintage finishes.
The colour combinations below are beautiful examples of how these colours can be used to create very elegant yet fresh schemes, that can be as classic or as original as you wish.
Sage and Peony
Lilac and Dusty Blue
Fresh greens, sage, lilacs and pinks have been used in the fabrics, flowers and table decorations to create a fresh youthful feel. Capturing a wedding style with vintage and natural qualities.
Nude colours like tan, beige, Ivory and cream teamed with earthy greens, brown or purple also make for a modern and sophisticated colour scheme.
As mentioned, many of these schemes are very much suited to the outdoor wedding. Mixing these colours with hessian fabrics, vintage florals and rustic wild flower decor will achieve the perfect balance.
Wedding Craft DIY project ideas
Check out my Pinterest boards for a whole host of wedding DIY craft ideas....but here are a few to wet your appetite and get your ideas flowing.
Make pretty shabby chic garlands out of strips of fabric tied to a twine or string.
This is a very pretty and easy idea that requires no sewing!
For a unique way of displaying photographs, maybe have an instant camera available for guests, then prepare these pretty frames to hang photos of the day.
Customise old frames with paint or fabric and tie string or twine across in rows in a taut manner. Attach wooden pegs for pinning photos to.
Use co-ordinating fabrics or unique vintage pieces in the background to hide the string attachments and create a background for your pictures. These frames could be given away after the wedding to close friends, or kept to decorate your home.
Create beautiful sparking decorations by up cycling old perfume bottles or light bulbs. Add fresh flowers and twine to hang the sparkling masterpieces from empty frames or from trees around the venue.
