Colour themes for weddings run in cycles, and 2010 looks like being a year of contrasts.
With black making a strong statement on the catwalk, a monochrome themeis a newly popular choice and a perfect option for a sophisticated city wedding. A touch of black on the dressin the form of a sash, ribbon, or flower, can be borne through in the reception with black and white cakes, stationery and favours. The new Maison de Gabrielle collection offers gorgeous ideas, with everything from cupcake wraps to camellia trimmed stationery , making it easy to bring this graphic look to life.
Blue is becoming ever more popular, with shades ranging from turquoise to azure. Country brides will love this look which brings alive the sense of a summer’s day. A cool colour, blue flatters many skin tones, making it a fresh choice for bridesmaids and a lovely theme for the reception. Check out our new Something Blue story for a new take on this theme, offering a combination of ditzy flowers redolent of a French country fair, and the Broderie Anglaise of an English summer.Vintage just doesn’t go away, and with the new Vintage Fair at Goodwood this summer, expect more news of this theme. It’s a true romantic’s choice, with fans, feathers, pearls and lace on everything from dresses to stationery. The new Maison de Gabrielle story complements this look with a gentle palette of soft pink, chocolate, gold and ivory.
