Rapidly becoming hot colours for weddings this season are shocking pinks, exotic oranges and Oriental blacks.
The biggest thing to come back into bridal fashion over the last couple of years is colour. Any bride who wants to keep up to date with current trends needs to get some exotic and show stopping colour into her wedding.
Your main inspiration for these ideas should be Hawaii and Morocco. Colour oozes out of flowers, clothes and even the people from these great places so take some ideas from them.
In terms of fancy floral arrangements, there are so many ways in which you add these key colours. For example, team tropical tiger lilies with pink stargazer lilies together in a bouquet and tie it with black satin ribbon. Floral centrepieces can then be produced in the same way but in a larger scale. Watch out for the stamens though as these stain anything they are near. Good florists will take the stamens out beforehand but ask those who are dressing your tables to double check before introducing them to white table linen!
Depending on the time of the year you are getting married, bright cerise tulips and orange tulips look fabulous when tied together with black and gold netting. The only caution with tulips is that they tend to wilt so keep stems short and keep them well watered for as long as possible. Tulips are pretty, gentle flowers that work really well in posies for little children too.
The popular tulip is hotly pursued by black blooms this season. Unusual is the name of the game with black orchids and black roses intermingled with lengths of bright pink and orange organza ribbon. Quite often you can buy bouquets containing ready preserved blooms and although these are more expensive, their longevity and freshness is significantly extended.
Draping Orchids and Gloriosa really set off wedding gowns that are made of silk and the overall feel created by these flowers is that of opulence. Even if you are not an Indian bride, the combination of rich silk and pretty flowers gives an eclectic feel to the occasion making it a perfect choice for a sense of adventure' bride. This type of bouquet is so different as it drapes across the palm and naturally elongates the body. When it comes to other wedding accessories, keep with the overall brightly coloured floral theme. Scatter tables with pink and orange flower heads, or even bowls of sweets in these stunning colours. Colourful glass candleholders and gold plates will give tables a sense of occasion by standing out from the white of the table linen. Gold accessories work really well with pinks, orange and black so go for gold colours in table scatters and place cards. The black works really well too, but keep this subtle by only introducing a splash of it here and there. If you are going for black netting or ribbon on your bouquet, then simple co-ordinating napkin ties in black will suffice.
As far as invitations are concerned, black works really well when teamed with bright colours, so consider having black cards with bright envelopes. This will give your guests an insight as to what is to come
However you accessorize your wedding, the combination of pink, orange and black is a guaranteed talking point for your guests. Regardless of season and weather, these colours are sure to bring cheer and happiness to even the most miserable of wedding days. By using Orange, Cerise and Black you too can have the dream wedding you have always hoped for!
