Behind the Design: Floral Watercolor for Summer

Categories Inspiration + Wedding Stationery

Looking for summer or floral wedding inspiration? Today’s “Behind the Design” has both! Bursting with vibrant color and whimsical flowers, this garden wedding is a thing of beauty and full of inspiring details. Here’s Rachel to share the inspiration for her new Design Suite, Floral Watercolor. 

“I imagined an elegant summer garden wedding as I was creating this design. Floral patterns have become quite a popular trend and using that with watercolor brush strokes sets quite the elegant tone for a summer wedding. How fun is that oversized flower?! Imagine how you could incorporate florals into your day in new and exciting ways! To really bring this watercolor design to life, try this design out on the pressed texture paper.”

How to Carry Your Wedding Colors

Categories Inspiration + Wedding Planning

Creating Color Flow Throughout Your Wedding

Your wedding colors are important! And what makes them so important is that they are instrumental in creating the mood you want. Carrying your colors to essential focal points will bring a sense of balance and continuity to your overall wedding look. Whether your style is rustic, regal, or somewhere in between, your colors will help you achieve that certain quality and tone to each facet of your wedding–from the ceremony to the reception. A wedding color scheme typically has 2-3 primary colors and 1-2 accent colors. Need somewhere to start? Discover combos in our color theory guide, and check out the latest color trends, as well as browse color inspiration boards for season and mood.

5 Focal Points in which to Carry Your Colors

1. Wedding Stationery

Save the Dates | Invite + Suite Items | Programs | Favors | Thank Yous

The first indication of your wedding style is seen through your stationery–with your colors being the centerpiece of the design. Set the tone and carry your colors to each piece in your suite.

2. Wedding Attire

From a wedding sash and hairpiece to bridesmaid dresses and groomsmen ties, it’s really fun to see the wedding colors played out in wedding attire for you and your wedding party. And while it’s typically the bridesmaid dresses that carry the primary color, feel free to mix it up with fun ties for the guys, unique socks and non-floral boutonnieres.

3. Ceremony Décor + Florals

Whether you go simple or sophisticated, the ceremony is a lovely place to show off your color scheme. From ribbons to florals, carry your colors and style down the aisle.

4. Reception Décor + Florals

From table linens and candles, to glassware, centerpieces and containers, carry your colors in unique and varied ways. Get creative as a little color goes a long way. Similar to this square glass cube vase filled with a variety of beautiful orange flowers, get a little monochromatic with a mixtures of textures and shades. This variety brings visual interest and a unique perspective to your color scheme.

5. Natural Surroundings

What easier (and least expensive) way to carry your colors and enhance the mood and look than by borrowing from the beauty that nature so readily provides. From blooming rose gardens to tree canopied walkways, lean on nature’s landscape to enhance the mood and bring drama to your setting.
