Interior designers have noted for a while now the way to create a space special is to apply carefully chosen accent colors.
You may have a neutral background - then combine with standout shades to include a depth of great interest.
And you realize something? You can use exactly the same trick to personalize and elegance up your big day.
Today's brides often provide a nod towards the past whilst incorporating aspects of contemporary styling to their big day to provide things an on-trend twist.
Here Are Some Ideas For Using Color Accents On Your Big Day
Use exactly the same accent color throughout - say the 2010 Pantone Ultra Violet - for that groomsmen's vests and cravats, your shoes, the bridesmaid dresses, your table settings, your flowers - but keep anything else white or cream.
Use exactly the same accent color throughout - say the 2010 Pantone Ultra Violet - for that groomsmen's vests and cravats, your shoes, the burgundy bridesmaid dresses, your table settings, your flowers - but keep anything else white or cream.
Have an all-white reception (a high level bit of a traditionalist) - linen, napkins, chairs ... but make use of your flowers to provide pops of color.
Maybe a colorful tiara?
Put your bridesmaids in white but provide them with brightly colored, dazzling bouquets - plus they don't all have to be exactly the same shades either. Mix blues, reds, oranges, and yellows in various posies.
Wear jewel-colored wedding shoes having a traditional white wedding gown.
Or if you do not want to stay with one accent color, consider ombre effects - in which you use a graduated version of exactly the same color. Maybe in the most delicate lilac shade right down to a deep purple. You can do exactly the same with pinks, reds, oranges, and greens
Remember when you introduce accent colors to some largely white wedding, you'll end up getting better photographs and videos because it gives the photographer something to pay attention to.
