Colour Inspiration: Rainbow!

charlieOur classic bride Charlie is here today to give us some inspiration on incorporating a rainbow of colours into your wedding colour scheme – bright and cheery all the way!

We have had some gorgeous colour inspiration posts up on the blog these past few weeks but this week I have decided to mix it up a bit, why stick to one colour when you can use them all?!

The great thing about a rainbow or multi-colour theme is that you can either go all out with wild bright coloured outfits or you can stick to plain white and add the ultimate colour pop with a rainbow petticoat, shoes or other accessories such as a hair crown.

I’ve also had loads of fun (and wistful envy) putting together a Pinterest board of rainbow colour inspiration, so pop over and have a look!

Are any of our readers planning a multi coloured wedding? If so I would love to hear more ☺

PS. If multi-coloured isn’t your colour then try one of these instead! :)

Colour Inspiration: Regal Purple

SarahDIY bride Sarah is here with another wedding colour scheme inspiration post – this time we’re talking about Cadbury purple! Well, after all that chocolate at Christmas it’d be rude not to… Follow the Pinterest board here!

We know from our chats on Facebook that at least a few of our brides have chosen purple as one of their main colour scheme choices, so what better colour do to next in our colour scheme inspiration series than regal purple? (Or Cadbury purple as some people call it!) :)

When I think of purple of I think of rich, vibrant hues, luxurious fabrics and beautiful deep colours – from the deep gloss of aubergine to the far more subtle lilac, there are a million shades on the spectrum that you can incorporate into your wedding so get creative!

I’ve picked some of my favourite images below to help get your minds buzzing – as always you can click any photo to see a larger view and, where applicable, where you can buy the item. Don’t forget to check out our purple Pinterest board, too! :)

What colour would you like to see next? We’ve been asked for ‘non festive red’ so that’ll definitely be up on the blog soon! If you have any suggestions for that theme then we’d love to hear them in the comments! :)

If purple isn’t your colour then try these posts instead:

Colour Inspiration: Emerald Green

Cwtch The Bride’s Creator Maria is a busy bee. Like most wedding photographers, she’s coming to the end of the ‘wedding season’ having shot over 30 weddings eek! She’s also spent a lot of time behind the scenes of CTB working on some exciting projects.

We’ve managed to pin her down to share her favourite colour with you all today.  Here she is with an inspirational palette of  Emerald Green :) Take it away, Maria!

Hello Ladies & Gents, its been a while!

Its lovely to see so many of you enjoying Cwtch the Bride. I’ve particularly enjoyed reading all the lovely comments after each post. It would be great to read a few more after this one (seeing as I’m feeling a bit nervous).

Today I’d like to introduce you to a colour I simply adore. Its glamourous, deep, oozes style and reminds me of one of my favourite childhood films. Its the wonderful world of emerald green. There are so many things I love in life that are associated with this stunning colour…

Think The Wizard of Oz, My husband (he has incredible green eyes!), long walks through luscious green forests, That dress Keira Knightley wore in Atonement, glamorous emerald jewels (worn by 1950’s hollywood legends such as Elizabeth Taylor) plus lots more…

Emerald Green also happens to be the 2013 Pantone colour of the year!

When it comes to weddings, There are so many ways you can use this colour. With it being such a bold shade of green, I think it works best when used subtly. Less is definitely more with this beauty! Heres are a few images and ideas that I hope inspire you as much as they do me.

If it’s a colour you’ve never really considered for your wedding, maybe create your own pinterest board and see how it works with other colours? It works great with gold.

Let me know what other colours you think would work well with it. I’m keen to know your thoughts :) I’ve put together a Pinterest board of my favourite emerald green picks so do be sure to check that out too! :)

Enjoy!

Love Maria x

SarahDIY bride Sarah is here with another wedding colour scheme inspiration post! We know some of our readers are fond of peacock blue, so Sarah’s put together a post featuring some of her favourite pieces :) Follow the Pinterest board here!

Some people call it teal but we call it peacock blue – that gorgeous, almost electric blue colour that shifts with the light and creates a beautiful, vibrant colour palette :) Of course, if you want to really get into the colour scheme you can incorporate peacock feathers into all manner of things, but even if you just want a subtle suggestion of blue we recommend you go for this shade – it really is something special :)

As always, you can pop along to our Pinterest account to find a board featuring even more peacock blue inspiration! :)

Colour Inspiration: Blush Pink

Vintage bride Sophie is here with another colour inspiration post for you all today – this time she’s head over heels for a bit of blush pink. Ooh la la!
blush pink

Drum roll please for what I consider to be the prettiest of all the pinks… Bluuuuuuush Piiiiiiiiink!

I’m one for subtler tones and blush pink is just that, an understated, elegant, inoffensive, beautiful, demure shade of pink. It’s girly without screaming ‘I wish I was in Grease!’ and it’s a shade of pink I am certain you can persuade your husband-to-be to embrace. Not sold? This is my best sales pitch…

  • It’s one of the few shades of pink that goes with red hair!
  • It brings out the best in pearls
  • It’s a piece of cake finding complimentary flowers
  • Your flower girl is sure to love it
  • Pair it with gold for a super luxe look
  • It’s not seasonal and is guaranteed to look great all year round
  • It’s sooooo romantic
  • If you’re not into white, it works wonderfully as an alternative dress colour
  • It is so versatile, there really are no limits!

STILL need convincing? Check out the board below, I would love to hear what you think :-)
