2016 spring confetti colour trends
Wedding colour trends
change each year and season. 2016’s
spring colours are vivid brights mixed with subtle nudes and hints of pastels.
Whether you choose just one colour as your
wedding theme, or a selection of colours, there is always the perfect confetti
mix for you. Today we are sharing our top spring 2016 confetti colours.
1. Rose Quartz is said
to be the colour of the year! This
gentle tone conveys compassion and a sense of composure. Our recommendation to match this pretty
colour is Candyfloss delphinium petals. Rose Quartz pairs well with Serenity, Peach Echo and Lilac Grey. To include all of these colours, an excellent
mix would be Candyfloss, Frosted Blue and Lady Grey delphinium petals with
Promise rose petals.
Echo is a warm shade of orange, perfect for being playful with colours. Our recommendation would be our Coral Reef
confetti mix, which includes hints of orange, pink and ivory. It can be difficult to find all of the
details you want in the your colour scheme; including different shades around
your chosen colour gives you a lot more freedom when it comes to choosing
3. Serenity is
weightless and airy, with its smooth tone, just like the sky. Serenity is a calming colour, perfect for a
wedding! For a bold colour splash on
your wedding day, Serenity pairs well with Peach Echo, Snorkel Blue and
Buttercup. Our recommendation for a
great confetti moment would be to mix these colours together using Candyfloss,
Frosted Blue, Ivory and Golden Slumber. For a more subtle mix, the perfect blend would be Icing Sugar, Duck Egg
and Golden Slumber.
Blue is a tone bursting with energy. Part of the navy family, Snorkel Blue is perfect combined with Ivory for
a simple, yet bold wedding theme. Add as
much or as little colour as you wish. Our recommendation is our Something Blue. Snorkel Blue pairs well with Pantone colours Buttercup, Iced
Coffee and Peach Echo.
5. Buttercup is a sunny,
happy shade of yellow. Perfect for a
spring wedding, this stunning colour can be dressed up by pairing it with other
colours such as, Serenity, Snorkel Blue and Lilac Grey. If you want to tone it down, mix it with
ivory or paler shades. Our
recommendation is our bright Sunshine Kisses mix of Honey’b calendula petals
and Icing Sugar delphiniums.
6. Limpet Shell Weather
is a crisp, clear, clean and defined shade of green. This modern tone evokes tranquillity and
freshness, perfect if you want a subtle wedding theme, with a hint of colour. It will be difficult to match every detail
with this colour, so why not combine it with Peach Echo, Rose Quartz or Iced
Coffee. Our recommendation for confetti
would be a contrast in colours, picking a few pastel shades to compliment such
as our Summer Nights, or even Icing Sugar on its own.
7. Lilac Grey is an edgy
neutral shade of grey, great for vintage weddings. Our recommendation would be to mix this
lovely grey tone with ivory in our Winters Morn delphinium petals. Add a touch of Serenity and Rose Quartz if
you want more colours in your confetti photo with the Vintage Daydream
mix. Lilac Grey also pairs well with
Green Flash, Fiesta and Iced Coffee.
is an exciting fiery, strong tone, which provides a stark contrast to the more
calming colours. Fiesta pairs well with
Green Flash; our recommendation would be to add green and ivory for a striking
confetti mix, such as a pick and mix of Icing Sugar, Envy and Romeo and Juliet,
which will really stand out on photos. Fiesta also pairs well with Snorkel Blue and Limpet Shell.
Coffee is said to be a transitional colour that will take us through the
seasons, so expect to see this around all year. This soft and subtle colour works well mixed with Serenity, Rose Quartz
and Lilac Grey. Our recommendation would
be to combine other subtle colours, such as a pick and mix of Icing Sugar and
Frosted Blue delphiniums, adding some Delilah rose petals. These colours work really well for vintage
weddings and allow you to combine other neutral shades, without colours being overbearing.
10. Green Flash is a
vivid, fresh tone, perfect for spring. It pairs well with Snorkel Blue, Limpet Shell and Serenity. If you would like strong colours, our
recommendation would be a pick and mix of Midnight Blue and Envy. However, if you want to something less bold,
a mix of Icing Sugar, Something Blue and Envy would work perfectly.
