Today’s post from the Colours Collection focuses on the sunny shade of Yellow.
Yellow is a beautifully diverse colour that when used carefully, can brighten up your wedding theme. It’s a bold choice, and it’s best used wisely, subtly and thoughtfully. There are a few traditional combinations, such as Yellow & Grey that I can show you some examples of, but you can also use it as a more independent shade.
I thought I’d start with some wedding attire first of all, and these wedding shoes and lace sock combination are incredibly cute. This whole wedding was beautifully styled, you can see all the photographs here on Phindy Studios Photography. Image sourced here too.
The next example uses one of my favourite trends – mismatched bridesmaid dresses. I wrote a post recently on alternative bridesmaid dresses, so if you’re hoping to style your maids a little differently, take a look there too. This beautiful image comes from the 100 Layer Cake Blog – I love everything about this wedding; it’s rustic, charming and has a really ‘easy’ feel to it.
The yellow bridesmaid dresses were sourced from different shops and boutiques, but they accessorised each one with light grey tights and a matching pink sash to show a sense of unity. Each bridesmaid still retains a real unique look however, with nobody’s personal style compromised.
The brooch bouquet below (another favourite trend of mine….) was found on StyleHive. The colour combination of bright pink, yellow and turquoise could easily look too much or be harsh on the eye, but the clever use of the dusky pink/white compliments the bold colours perfectly. Image sourced here.
Maisie Fantaisie have been featured on DVW before and create the most beautiful bespoke and couture cake designs. I was so pleased to see this Sunflower Wedding Cake on their website. This particular cake has a Madagascar vanilla bean sponge, almond buttercream, apricot preserve and handmade sugar flowers. The design of the cake itself is relatively straight forward, with four tiers iced in white, but the flowers really stand out and embrace a summertime wedding theme. Image sourced on company website.
I’ve decided I’m a big fan of sunflowers as a theme. This venue has been dressed beautifully, and the wedding was originally featured on Love My Dress. I love that the floral display the uses the bold sunflower mixed with more elegant wild flowers. Images sourced on Love My Dress, courtesy of Mark Wallis Photography.
My final piece of yellow inspiration for you is this cute Rose necklace which is available for just £20.00 at Meggy Moos. This would look great at a rustic wedding with an alternative, quirky wedding dress. This is the description taken from the website, “Beautiful, feminine, romantic yellow rose necklace. A gorgeous vintage rose cabouchon inspired flower embedded in an antique bronze Bohemian setting.” Image sourced here.
