New Year’s Eve is one of the most exciting days of the year, and it can reach a fever-pitch when you pair the evening with a marriage proposal. From proposals at the stroke of midnight to engagements in the midst of dear friends, a wedding proposal on New Year’s Eve may be just as memorable as the wedding that comes along later. The floral stylists at Boyd’s Flowers will help you choose beautiful flowers for your nuptials.
Choosing Your Wedding Colors
Some couples let the season guide their choice of flowers while other couples choose their personal, favorite colors and create meaningful bouquets out of those hues. If you’re not yet set on the colors you want for your wedding, you might think about taking a cue from the Pantone Color Report Spring 2016.
The colors expected to become the most popular of the season run the gamut from soft pinks to bright blues, and you can choose many complementary shades amongst Pantone’s selection. There’s a bluish purple color called “serenity,” which would look gorgeous when presented in a cube of hydrangeas or a towering orchid.
Pinks and purples are ideal for a tranquil spring wedding, but if your wedding will occur on a date that’s closer to summer, you might think about some of the brighter colors in this year’s canvas of popular hues. A vivid shade of yellow called “buttercup” would look gorgeous for the corsages worn by the wedding party and the parents of the couple.
Contrasting Colors for a Vivid Wedding
When we think of wedding colors, we often see subtle, matching shades like pale blue and cornflower or rose and pink. If you’re feeling a little adventurous, the colors this spring can help you design a bright and memorable wedding for your guests. For example, the strong shade of “snorkel blue” would look beautiful alongside the juicy yellow color of “buttercup.”
Imagine your cake flowers decorated with bright yellow and blue flowers with a background of pure white icing. The colors would also look incredible for the bouquets and garlands hung around the reception area. You may also think about choosing one color as your featured color and some matching shades as your support colors.
Close your eyes and imagine your wedding. What colors do you see? While the memory of your New Year’s engagement is still fresh in your mind, it’s time to start planning the wedding!
