How To Add a Pop Of Colour To Your Wedding.

Posted by Chloe Hobden on

Hello everyone and Happy New Year! 

Welcome back to our HoO blog. We have had a busy start to the year full of appointments ready for this years bridal season. We are so excited for all of our 2023 brides.

One thing we pride ourselves in, is making sure everyone is their true self on their wedding day. Bringing colour to your wedding day is a great way to bring personality and style to your outfit, flowers and venue.

An easy way to add a pop of colour without it being too overwhelming, is in your flowers. They can really tell a story depending on what you go for. For example, a dark red Rose, oozes romance and sophistication. Whereas a blush pink Peony can bring subtle hues and ethereal essences. There are so many options for making your bouquets completely unique to you as there are so many flower types and colours to choose from. Here are some of my favourites…

Number 1 has got to be my favourite image, a beautiful cherry-red bouquet made by June In March by Emily Baylis (@juneinmarch). This florist is based in Notting Hill, London. The contrasting use of dark pink and Lavender tones will add colour depth to any wedding venue. This paired with candles and floating pink florals around the room would be the vision of elegance.

Next up is a vision of cerulean hues made by the very talented Petalon Flowers (@petalon_flowers). They are based in the seaside county of Cornwall to create these beautiful arrangements. They also offer Field Flowers which are grown on their farm in Cornwall and are delivered to customers using carbon neutral delivery services, biodegradable packaging and they support Bee conservation.

Lastly, a pastel toned bouquet perfect for a minimal touch of colour. This floral bouquet was created by Steph Turpin and Fairynuff Flowers (@fairynuffflowers). The delicate feminine flowers paired with Eucalyptus adds different muted tones and elongates the shape of the arrangement. The touch of yellow really compliments the subdued pinks and peaches of the Peonies and Roses.

An example of how colourful florals can really bring your wedding day to life is Brittany and Sophie’s Melbourne wedding. They both wore bridal two pieces made by us, they look amazing!

Flowers can be used in such creative ways to create the perfect vibe for your wedding day. We can also add a pop colour to your wedding outfit; who says everything has to be Ivory?

We have had some amazing brides here at HoO which really embrace the “non-traditional” wedding outfit, and we are here for it.

Here we have a perfect example. We saw Alicia in 2022 and helped her to create her beautiful wedding outfit. She chose our Cox Top paired with our Thomas Skirt. The colours in the lace are complimented by her beautiful bridesmaids dresses and summery bouquet. We also love that she wore a pair of teal shoes to finish off her look. You may recognise her from one of our latest instagram posts.

If you are not into wearing colour yourself, why not dress your bridesmaids in colour instead. Cassy is a vibrant and fun person which is reflected in her use of colour on her wedding day. She chose our Bouilly Jumpsuit with an added extra feather trim along the edge of the cape. She paired her outfit with platform snake print shoes which tie the colour palette together.

We love to see how everyone adds colour to their wedding day, as the possibilities are endless!
