5 ways to add a pop of colour to your wedding day
Break the neutral colour-scheme mould and go for a splash of colour on your big day. Whether you go for creative food choices, brightly coloured flowers or an alternative wedding dress, adding a pop of colour to your big day is simple. We’ve come up with some simple ways to brighten up your day:
1. Sugary treats
On this occasion, it is totally acceptable to fulfil your childhood dream of going a little overboard with the sugar content; whether it’s by enjoying a glass of raspberry cocktail topped with ice cream or tucking into some brightly coloured pick ‘n’ mix, colourful food is the perfect way to give your wedding a fun, colourful feel.
2. The cake
We know that strictly speaking the bride and groom are the main focus on the big day, we’d be lying if we told you that the cake didn’t hog some of the limelight. Having a colourful cake is a brilliant way to add some fun to your reception, and if you’re having children at your big day – it’s sure to be a big hit with them.
Why not decorate your venue with your favourite bright colours? Choose vivid table settings and vibrant balloons, making sure your reception really stands out. We’re pretty sure that there is a direct link between bright colours and having fun, so your guests are bound to be more likely to party the night away surrounded by brightly coloured decorations.
Flowers are one of the easiest ways to introduce a pop of colour to your big day. Gerberas and Chrysanthemums are perfect for a refreshing change from more traditional, neutral flower choices.
5. The dress
Who says your dress has to be white, anyway? For the boldest of brides, there is always the option to stray from the norm and choose a vividly coloured wedding dress. Having a non-traditional wedding dress is a great way to show off your personality on your wedding day and have some fun with your dress options.
