7 ways to spice up your wedding colours

Nowadays, brides are straying from the traditional wedding colours, and choosing to splash colour and personality over their wedding. Leave white behind: Here’s 7 ways to add colours to your bridal look.

Attention grabbing shoes

A popular trend of recent years and a way to add instant bridal drama is through colourful, contrasting shoes. This look works well with tea length dresses or shorter styles which put your beautiful footwear on show. Go for a designer pair that you might never splurge on in real life, and add a little extra luxury to your wedding attire.

A scene-stealing underskirt

Every rockabilly or vintage bride knows an underskirt adds impact; make yours unique by choosing a petticoat in a contrasting colour to your dress. This might be a small burst of a bright shade or a wide band of vivid tulle. Reflect this colour in the grooms accessories and bridesmaid dresses to tie your look to a wider wedding theme and make the photographs pop.

A colourful mani-pedi

If you’ve chosen a traditional gown but are craving a hint of bright then go for a dramatic manicure to add depth and interest to your outfit. This could be your something blue or an excuse to go a little wild with nail art. Make sure you choose a long lasting design that won’t chip before your big day.

A dramatic dress

If you love colour and just can’t see yourself in a pale dress, then choose a bright shade for your bridal gown. There are no rules when it comes to your wedding look, so pick a colour you love and embrace it. This could be deep scarlet, emerald green, or dreamy turquoise. As long as you’re wearing a colour you love, everyone else will love it too.

A bag with attitude

Where does a bride keep her tissues, lipstick, and phone? Bridal bags are an easily overlooked part of your wedding ensemble that you could and should pay more attention too. A clutch is a great way to keep your stuff close at hand, and create an extra layer of style in your wedding look. Go bright, fun and even a little bit silly with your wedding bag. Don’t worry about a bag getting in your way on the aisle, leave it safely with a bridesmaid until you hit the reception.

A piece of statement jewellery

Bridal jewellery doesn’t have to be delicate and subtle. Choose a bold, bright statement piece as the focal point of your look and feel stunning on your wedding day. Pick semi-precious stones in vivid colours or unusual materials and designs that sit perfectly against a dreamy white gown. Don’t hold back, this is your chance to shine.

 A rainbow bouquet

Delicate tonal bouquets may be a thing of beauty but rainbow-hued blooms are fighting back hard. 2017 has seen brides putting aside 1 or 2 colours for a whole spectrum of beautiful flowers that reflect a relaxed and informal wedding style. Choose blooms that fit by theme rather than shade to make sure your multi-coloured arrangement works. Woodland flowers or hot house exotics will sit harmoniously together in a bouquet if they grow together in nature.

Tie in a bright belt

A belt can transform a good dress into an amazing one. It creates a glamorous silhouette, acts as a focal point for your look, and makes your take on a dress completely unique. Choose a belt with a shot of colour to make your look playful and stylish. Partner with a simple gown and pared back accessories to create a real statement.
