For a colorful centerpiece that is “refreshing”, use fruit in your centerpieces. This will create a colorful combination as well as a wonderful fragrance for guests as dine and drink. Make sure you pick a fruit that complements the color palette and flowers that are being used. Depending on the size of the vases and flowers cut slices of the fruit and arrange them accordingly. I like the look of arranging the fruit slices underneath the flowers so you don’t see the stems. Especially for a spring or summer wedding, this will easily complement the other seasonal touches that you have picked out.
I know when you hear teal you think outrageous eighties, but with a summer wedding, it is a great color that can either brighten or subdue your wedding palette. You can either make it the main color for your wedding or use it as an accent color. Teal is a great color for summer weddings when paired with more traditional colors such as orange, pink, yellow, or red. This unique color provides a cool and modern take on a conventional wedding that will really make a statement to friends and family.
For a nautical wedding, using bold navy stripes in the decor can really kick it up a notch. Stripes can at times be loud, but if you use them in moderation they will give your wedding ceremony or reception that extra wow factor. When you have a themed wedding, you want your guests to recognize that but not knock them over the head with it. Whether it’s striped tablecloths, striped ribbon for the bridal party’s bouquets, striped ties or bowties for the groomsmen, or even stripes on the wedding cake, all of these provide a minimal touch.
