Two main themes seem to be emerging this year for wedding colours. Bright and muted. But not your hot pink colour scheme, nor your washed out white. Elegant, sophisticated and interesting colour palettes.
Accentuated with muted tones of mink, blush or taupe this colour palette is exceptionally versatile and can be used from Januray through to December. Whilst this is a lot softer than the classic mono-chrome theme (which was executed beautifully by Alexis in 2011) it is still very elegant and clean. For those wanting to add some colour, try yellow or green.
Bright and cheerful. This year is all about the orange/peach. Teamed with aqua (or thereabouts) it makes for a wonderfully delicious spring to summer palette. Though it can be taken through to Autumn, muting it with shades of grey and gold.
For those brides wanting to add a vintage princess element to their wedding rose and gold fits in perfectly with current themes (coming up tomorrow). Perfect all year round, this colour palette will have your wedding coming up roses.

Instead of, or in addition to your bouquet. A nod to the 1950s in a floral manner. I sincerely hope corsages make a come back this year. You spend a lot of your wedding day without your bouquet so it would be worthwhile investing in corsages for you a your bridesmaids, especially if you are having a wonderfully bright colour palette like above.
After seeing Lana Del Ray rock the floral headpiece, I think more brides will opt for this in place of jewels. Or perhaps a change to jewels in the evening? Either way, beautiful floral creations will be seen donning the heads of brides and I love it!
Big, beautiful blooms. Very Victorian (more on this tomorrow) and very elegant.
So there you have 2012 trends for colours and flowers. Coming up tomorrow, themes and styling. Can you already see where its going?
Do you agree?
