6 ways to incorporate your favorite colours on your wedding day

There are many ways to incorporate your favorite colours on your wedding day. If you have a favorite colour you can make it a main theme, or combine it with gold or silver. In general, warmer colours combine better with gold while cooler colours combine better with silver. If you have more than one colour you want to incorporate, you can easily combine them, too. For example, matching the bride’s and the groom’s favorite colour can be really cute and effective.

Flower arrangements

Floral arrangements

No wedding can miss on the various flower arrangements all over the wedding or reception hall. As everyone knows, you can get various flowers in almost every colour there is, so visit a florist to find the kind of flowers that will match your ideas perfectly. Once you choose your perfect flowers, you can use them as centerpieces for the table, to decorate the chairs or benches, or to create a lovely bride’s bouquet.

Wedding décor

Table arrangements
This is probably the aspect of the wedding where you have the most room to incorporate your favorite colours. The simplest way to do so is by choosing the tablecloths in the desired shade. Also, you can add chair bows. If there’s more than one colour you want to incorporate, it would look great to combine table cloths and chair bows in one colour with flower pieces in the other. What’s more, you can also use balloons or even Christmas lights to decorate the walls and complete the colour scheme.

Colourful cutlery

This idea is really interesting and fun, especially since not many couples bother to find cutlery and plates in their favorite colours and they usually end up being metallic or white. But putting some effort into finding the plates in one and cutlery in the other colour can add that extra touch to the whole wedding. For example, if your favorite colour is red, you can place red plates in front of the guests and spice things up with gold cutlery.

Wedding invitations

Of course, if your whole wedding theme will be based on your favorite colour, you would want to announce this pretty clearly to the guests. Today, wedding invitations are truly an art form and there’s no way that you can’t find ones that match your taste. Also, you can custom-order some at Dream Day Invitations and therefore give clear instructions on what colours should be used in their making.

Wedding fashion accessory

If you want to make things even more colorful and interesting, you and your future spouse can add your favorite colours to your wedding outfits. While the wedding gown is usually white or champagne, the bride can wear lovely shoes in the specific colour while the groom can enrich his suit by wearing a flower or handkerchief of the chosen colour in the lapel.

Wedding cake

Wedding cakes
Everyone waits to see the wedding cake and comment on its beauty and intricate details before tasting it. This is also a great opportunity to add your favorite colours to the wedding. Using the wedding cake for this purpose is really easy since the details and the frosting can be of any colour you can possibly imagine. Even if you have a certain shape in mind, you can always place the order with instructed colour changes.

The colours you and your partner prefer might not be everyone’s cup of tea or they might not be in a traditional wedding spirit. Still, the important thing is to make these decisions yourselves, because this is your special day and no one should have the final word except the two of you.

The key is in the details, as always, and by making sure your little flower girl has just the right accessories will add that final magic touch that will transform her into little flower princess.

Adorned with flowers

Faux flowers are a huge hit and they look simply divine on little girls; so feel free to wrap your little girl in them. Even something as simple as faux flower collar will do the trick. The beauty of this garment is that it can be worn often and with many different outfits, so your little flower girl will have a pretty reminder of the great role she had at a wedding. What is more, you can combine it with a matching flower headband and make her look like a little fairy that stepped out of forest. These can come in many different hues and she can wear her own or bride’s favourite colour.

Flower-Girl-Ideas

Flowery protection

If you are planning to have your wedding ceremony out in the open, you might want to consider giving your flower girl a simple rice paper parasol to protect her delicate skin from the UV rays. What is more, these parasols come in many different designs, especially if you pick matching posy-topped ones. These adorable flower girl dresses are all the rage in Australia, and Aussie mommies are always on the lookout for the sweetest and most adorable ones.

Sequins for little princess

If you are aiming to have a more nonchalant, boho air on your wedding ceremony, you might want to dress your little flower girl in a simple (but still adorable) tutu skirt that had just a dash of glitter on. In addition, you can add a pair of sequin flats to match, and watch as little girl widens her eyes in amazement when she sees her outfit, and in return your guests widen their smiles in delight when she walks down the aisle bravely holding her little flower basket.

Something new…

Swap the traditional ‘something old’ custom with a new one; ditch old flower petals and let your flower girl have fun with something as cute as heart-shaped confetti which she can toss from her little basket. Or simply give her a streamer wand to wave as she approaches the altar and on her way back. It might also be a good idea to give a matching wand (or similarly decorated one) to the ring bearer and have the two of them wave merrily as they walk in and out.

Remember, if your little flower helper is comfortable and relaxed, she will make the entire ceremony seem brighter and warmer. If possible, have two flower girls go hand-in-hand for it will make it easier for them to relax and boost their confidence. The most important thing is for everyone to enjoy this very special day, and happy flower girls are a sign of peaceful future ahead.

Arranging Specialty Flower Bouquets on a Budget

Many consumers would rather not have to deal with specialty flower bouquets because they feel like they are too costly. However, do not let this deter you because you are about to find out a couple of tricks that will help you cut back on expenses; while still ending up with a gorgeous bouquet that anyone would be proud of.

Saving Money on Specialty Flower Bouquets – Stick with In-Season Flowers
To ensure that you spend less on the event, work with the flowers that are in season. These are usually cheaper as they are readily available and appear in their freshest form. To find out the flowers that are in season, you can research online to get insight from different sources. There is also an option of speaking with florists that you can trust to give you the information you need. If you can, visit some flower farms or nurseries as this is also an excellent way to find out the flowers that are currently blossoming.

Affordably Arrange Specialty Flower Bouquets – Use Your Creativity
Creativity plays a major role if you want to have a spectacular end product. Take some time to think about how you might like to arrange the flowers to create that ‘wow factor’. You can also get inspiration from other bouquets that were designed before. Do not be tempted to copy the exact designs of specialty flower bouquets, as this will result in something that is not original. Instead, let your imagination run as wild as possible. This way you will not limit yourself in any way, and the results may very well surprise you.

Make Affordable Specialty Flower Bouquet Choices – Use the Right Accents
Picking the right accents could make your arrangement stand out. These do not have to be complicated or expensive as a simple, colorful vase, a decorated branch, or even a beautiful ribbon may do the trick. Just look around you, and you are bound to identify something that will bring out the floral arrangement.

Stay Within Your Specialty Flower Bouquet Budget – Go green
There is no rule that stipulates that you must make the bouquet out of flowers. One of the best alternatives that can be used for the arrangement is leafy green plants. These look attractive as they bring out a vibrant look that also happens to be very unique. Just remember to make sure that they are well arranged, and you should be good to go.

Don’t Go Over Your Specialty Flower Bouquet Budget – Be Resourceful
It is not only professional florists who can help you out with the flowers that are needed to make an incredible specialty floral bouquet. You can utilize the resources around you and get your flowers directly from Mother Nature. For instance, if there are any flowers in your backyard, pick them and go ahead and make your fresh arrangement. You can also pick some flowers from your friends, family, or neighbors houses, but remember to ask politely. You can also get some on the way, as you go about your business.

As you have seen above, there is no need to spend a fortune on your specialty flower bouquets. Working with these tips will help you come up with an inexpensive,yet stunning specialty bouquet.
