So what did you think, friends, how much are you loving the rainbow look from today’s styled shoot? I must say, it is one of my favourites, not in a faddy themey way, but because it allows you to really just sort of play with colour and not be confined to a specific paletter, and also to produce something really fun and relaxed. I also love the rainbow look for bridesmaids, because it means you can really dress your girls according to their style and colouring instead of having the one-colour-fits-all approach. Either give them a single matching bouquet (something neutral, like a bushel of baby’s breath, for example) or a custom bouquet to match their colour (love this creative idea, especially if you’re as much a fan of flowers as I am). For your tables, keep things relatively neutral so that the colours really pop – you could have deconstructed bouquets in mismatched containers (stick to one colour per container – this works well in groupings of different heights or along a long table) – and how sweet is the idea below of using food colouring for an extra bit of zing? You can also play with ribbons, rainbow prints, and of course, stationery. I’m so in love with Will We Have Rainbows from Invitation Gallery, part of the SBB Collection, which is highlighted below. Isn’t it beeeyoodeeful? Anyway, if this is a look you love, here are some more ideas and products to inspire, including BM dresses for all your girls (even a pregnant one!). Read more
Hello lovelies – how has your Tuesday been going so far? Mine didn’t get off to an ideal start, but never mind that, because we have such a lovely styled shoot to brighten things up this afternoon. And I’m particularly excited about this one, in that it was created especially for us by an awesome team from the Nuptial Network, using some of the beautiful stationery from the SBB Collection at Invitation Gallery. I’ve loved seeing rainbow brights make their way into weddings in the last couple of years, and while this isn’t strictly a rainbow-themed affair, it’s colourful and rustic and a look that is really easy to recreate. I love it for a summer farm wedding, for example. The basic details are budget friendly – glass jars with different coloured flowers, fruit used for its natural hues (I really love how natural colour makes a table pop) and, of course, the stationery. This particular suite (Will We Have Rainbows by Mister and Missis) is one of my faves – it has such a fun, playful carnival vibe, and it also works perfectly with the neon trend that is going on at the moment (without looking like someone threw up 1992). I hope you’ll all be as inspired as I am by it – come back this evening and I’ll have a bit of a style guide for you if you want to recreate this yourself. But for now, let’s get colourful! Huge thanks to photographer Abigail K., co-ordinator Mosaic Wedding Company and the rest of the Nuptial Network team (full credits at the end). Read more
This stationery suite is as much fun as a visit to the circus! Full of colour, fun, love and interesting colours, it’s perfect for a carnival-themed wedding or a rainbow colour scheme, and will have your guests smiling from the time you save the date.
