This is fantastic news for you vibrant colour loving couples who are having a summer celebration, as it allows you to embrace the season's vibrancy and create a truly unforgettable atmosphere.

Bold and Beautiful Pinks

Pink isn't going anywhere, and this summer, it's getting a bold and beautiful makeover! While soft pinks and blushes will always be a romantic choice, 2024 weddings are all about embracing the vibrancy of summer with super-saturated tones. This trend celebrates vibrant hues - imagine your bridesmaids walking down the aisle in stunning hot pink dresses, reminiscent of the vibrant hues seen in this Rewritten silk gown. Center-pieces overflowing with fuchsia blooms, and table linens in a playful shade of watermelon.

We have a wide range of pink petals to choose from, from soft Blush and delicate Cherry Blossom to vibrant Candy Floss Delphiniums and show-stopping CeriseFlamingo Pink, and Peony Pink Rose Petals.

For the perfect confetti shot, we recommend a mix of petal sizes. Delphiniums, with their graceful flutter, create a stunning aerial display, while our larger petals add a burst of colour to match your vibrant theme.

Tips for choosing your wedding colour palette

1. Consider your venue:

The colours you choose should complement the style of your venue. For example, if you're getting married in a rustic barn, you might want to choose earthy tones. If you're getting married in a classic ballroom, you might want to choose more elegant colours.

2. Think about your personal style:

Your wedding colours should reflect your personal style as a couple. If you love bold colours, don't be afraid to go for it! If you prefer a more muted palette, that's perfectly fine too. It's your day after all, and you want to look back in years to come and not regret a thing. You do you!

3. Don't forget about the flowers:

When choosing your flowers, keep your wedding colours in mind. You can use your flowers to create a cohesive look throughout your wedding.
