There's the shrinking-violet-type from the bride, after which there's the 'whoo hoo this really is MY day' kind of bride. If you're the second, then you definitely might just be thinking about going hell for leather in your wedding color scheme, especially if you're getting hitched within the middle of the summer when every day life is hot and vibrant.
I come up with this style board around the Dessy.com 'Design an Inspiration Board' after I'd seen the stunning wedding party image (above) with an Inspiration Events board, thanks to Pinterest. I just LOVE the shocking pink and bridesmaid dresses - you'd need to serve outrageous pink and orange cocktails in the reception, for example Cosmopolitans or Tequila Sunrises, and hang the house rocking!
To shop the appearance, I've suggested (from left) Social Bridesmaid 8316 in Honeysuckle, Alfred Sung D614 in Mandarin, Alfred Sung D654 in Blossom, Social Bridesmaid 8135 in Punch, Social Bridesmaid 8126 in Rose, Alfred Sung D650 in Tangerine Tango, and After Six 6650 in Shocking.
The fabulous cake with geometric sugar shapes can also be from Inspiration Events and also the joyous flowers in the Four Seasons Magazine, both via Pinterest.
For a level hotter vibe, incorporate a primary red in to the mix alongside the pinks and oranges, as come up with amazingly within the style board below by MarilynsKeepsakes.com in her own 'best wedding blog ever'.
If you choose to get married in the historic Syon House in London, you may also get the up-lighting during the night to match your theme, as organized with this event through the wonderful Food Show Ltd company!
Or, for any less formal setting, hit the beach such as this bevy of bridesmaids using the beautiful bride - the sun's rays might not be shining, but simply look in the energy and vivacity of these bright pink and navy blue bridesmaid dresses, trigger perfectly using the pale green flowers within the bouquets! This is such another fabulous example from the inspiration you can get in the Pantone Wedding Styleboards around the Dessy website - have a look or even make your own!
