Colour trend: chalky blues


Even though I’m usually drawn to warmer colours like pinks, purples and corals, I’m loving the trend for soft, botanical blues teamed with lush green foliage right now. It’s such a gorgeous look for weddings… a nice summery update to the woodland look, I reckon.

The venue

Take one white marquee and transform it with ferns, fairy lights and deeper blue linens.

The flowers

Choose organic, seasonal blooms and tie them into the theme by displaying them in powder blue vases. The one below is from Confetti, but you could DIY the look by coating jam jars or old vases with Annie Sloan chalk paint.

The cake

Hand painted cakes look beautiful but they’re not cheap. Cheat the look by draping plain tiers with trailing foliage. Display on a bed of moss, obvs…

The stationery

With so much going on everywhere else, keep your invites, place cards and menus simple – I love this sweet lace design by Kate Ruth Romey.

The great thing about this look for your wedding is that you could save a fortune on flowers by styling your tables and bouquets with ferns and green foliage, with just a few wildflowers thrown in.
