Seaside Blues and Greens

Tying the knot oceanside? Celebrate that natural beauty with elegant shades of blue and green. Set the tone with sea-inspired place cards, and incorporate the colours into your favours and groomsmen’s looks. Bonus: You already have your something blue.

Marigold and Floral

Lean into cheery summer vibes with vibrant marigold paired with classic florals. Consider bringing that garden lewk to your bridesmaids’ dresses, sourcing fabrics in complementary floral prints, and incorporating marigold blooms and accents into your table settings or altar.

Whimsical Pastels

Live out your ~millennial pink~ and purple dreams with a wedding theme in true pastels that can accent your desserts or ceremony seating. This whole vibe works best for daytime weddings when the colours are most vibrant.

Peach and Gold

This is a low-key super romantic option. Perfect for a barn or outdoor wedding, these shades pair well with exposed brick or wood panelling and can even match your signature cocktail. (Hi, Bellini!)

Natural Woods and Neutrals

Bring the outdoorsy vibes with unique touches of wood and neutrals. Ideal for a nature escape or to contrast an ultra-modern city setting, these guys will set your wedding apart. Want to go even more on-theme? Order wood invitations or Etsy handcrafted keepsakes for favours.

Yellow and Bright White

A sunny combo will make your wedding pop. Made for any summer event, this lighthearted theme encourages the incorporation of lemons, daffodils, and sunflowers in bouquets and decor.

Pastels and Metallics

Get all lovey-dovey with classic shades of pastels and metallics. Easily adaptable for any setting or style of wedding, the theme photographs well and brings the attention to you and bae against a muted palette.

Sunset Orange and Sherberts

Turn your wedding into an Aperol spritz. Best for an outdoor wedding where you can match your shades to a stunning sunset, the theme can be added through bridal-party looks, swaths of fabric in your decor, and bright bouquets.

Navy and True Blue

Go preppy with shades of navy and blue. Perfect for a country-club sitch or a nautical space, the theme introduces blue glassware, blue-on-white prints, and an excuse to put your man in that navy suit you’ve always dreamed about.

Deep Purple and Natural Green

Want to liven up a standard hall or bring your backyard wedding up a bit? Deep purple set against natural green will do just the trick. Fragrant lilac flowers will elevate any setting, while deep greens can be worked into anything from ties to leafy table accents.

Literally All the Colours

Just pick ’em all! Take inspo from this rainbow wedding and hit every colour in the Crayola box for a lively theme that can be splashed across the entire affair.

DID SOMEONE SAY RAINBOW-TASTIC WEDDING? *accidental capslock but I’m leaving it because I’m fizzy with EXCITEMENT! 🌈 I had the absolute pleasure of having my art be part of this super cool bridal shoot last week! It was a colourful, festival vibe in a treehouse in a forest and it looks AMAZING! I’m gutted I couldn’t be there because this looks like my ideal day out and I think I’m a woodland Sprite/flower fairy (seriously though £200 to fly from Glasgow to Southampton what the actual heck?!) But it looks amazing! I’m loving how it turned out even though I wasn’t there in person! 🌈 Photography and concept: @byvicki Videography: @lovedupfilms Venue: @treehouse_weddings_ Concept, styling, flowers and furniture: @purpledoorprops Styling, coordination and flowers: @bethaweddings Bridal: @lucy_cant_dance Headwear: @ccmillinerycreations Jewellery: @tribulondon HMUA: @alidak.winchester Ceremony backdrop artwork: @sarahcoeyart Cake: @tinysarahscakes Assistant Photographer: @greg_gkphotography Drone Operator: @droneboyturkish Tableware, rug and cushions: @alresfordline Tassels: @nymph_interiors Stationery: @rachelemmastudio Flags, bunting and fabric: @eventflaghire Sequined outfits: @thisisrosabloom Lights: @missingchopper Glitter artist: @bohoglitterboutique Pink skirt: @kimberleystonedesign Models: @flickmclean and @thechampster
