An Elegant, Eclectic Wedding Palette for Spring 2016

Today we wanted to share with you a fresh, grown-up and modern palette for your 2016 wedding, which will work no matter what the season! As we mentioned in our guide to this year’s top wedding trends, romantic Rose Quartz and soothing Serenity Blue are the wedding colours of 2016 and while we love our soft pastel shades, they may lack the punch and wow factor some couples are searching for as they choose their perfect wedding colours. With this in mind, we’ve created a more clean and modern colour scheme with the addition of gorgeous grey and glamorous gold!

Metallics are huge in weddings this year, adding a chic and stylish edge to colour schemes. Copper may be the metallic du jour, but we’ll always have a soft spot for sprinkles of sequinned gold! We also love the idea of softening handsome grey suits with beautiful accents of blush pink and serene light blues in boutonnières and accessories – even a bit of dark tweed could work here too! Edison bulbs will be huge this year as couples opt for more creative lighting to create a romantic rustic feel to their reception, and we love the idea of pairing them with pretty fairy lights and adding a golden touch to your tables. Gold can also be injected into the table with the used of gorgeous gold rimmed charger plates or perhaps a sequinned gold runner for banquet style seating. Blush and blue are of course a little easier to integrate into your palette, through flowers, accessories and pretty pastel stationery, the trick this year is to expand your palette with complementary colours and not being afraid of texture too! Check out our palette below to see how you can work this gorgeous scheme into your day.
