I’ve been taking pictures of our gorgeous new products. Here’s my most favourite:

Milk Bottles Vintage rustic wedding table decorations

Pretty mini milk bottles with vintage tags & twine (and they’re only £3.95 each!)

They don’t come with the flower but any old flower will do, fresh would be best, but this was shot with fabric silk rose, the kind you can pick up in a garden centre. These are going to be very popular as table decorations for vintage wedding themes. I’m thinking rustic wooden crates as card holders, and lace table runners paired with burlap. But they look oh so charming sat on a window ledge in my house. Ahhhh

Corals, peaches and blush shades of invitations

So all of a sudden we get a million enquiries in the same week about one particular colour theme and that’s when you know what’s going to be hot for the upcoming wedding season. It’s not that coral and peach wedding invitations have ever really been ‘out’ of fashion but last year it had a little rest and took a back seat to the more traditional & muted shades like Ivory, Oatmeal and Nudes.

Coral wedding invitations

Plenty of traditional themes emerged last year too with lace invitations & stationery being more popular than ever for our Brides wedding invitations. Now, I’ll never tire of ‘traditional’ I’m all for it, but I am longing for the bolder Bride. And as a blonde girl myself, coral does it for me.

This year, the enquiries have been pouring in for wedding samples in coral. And I have 3 main reasons as to why this could be.

theme_coral_invitations_stationery1

Firstly, it could be because weddings abroad are more popular than ever. A few years ago, we worked on very large weddings in the main. Weddings with 80+ guests were the norm. This year, the volume is up on the number of people getting wed, but the orders are smaller in quantity and many are choosing to elope in sunnier climates. And why not. For Brides choosing a beach wedding, coral is so popular right now for their invitations. We currently have clients getting married in Cyprus, Turkey, Ibiza, & Menorca on the books right now. And guess what they are all coral Brides.

Secondly, could it be that coral is a more toned down variation of the Pantone colour of the year from 2012 ‘Tangerine Tango’ (that’s Pantone number 7625C for the designers out there)?

pantone-2012-tangerine-tango

Where orange, having grown in popularity amongst Designers and consumers in the previous months, was starting to appear in fashion, make up and interiors far more than before.

Coral Make up based on Tangerine Tango shade

Pantone do not take naming their colour of the year lightly and their selection is a very thoughtful process. To arrive at the selection, Pantone quite literally comb the world looking for color influences from the film industry, artists etc. And this naming of such a dramatic and seductive colour, saw Designers and Brides empowered to use such a bold colour in their wedding planning. Perhaps the recent popularity in Coral is based on the Colour of the Year 2012’s downfall: it was just that bit too bold for Brides’ wedding plans.

We always see variations of Pantone’s colour of the year filter through in variations of the shade in the following years after a naming, and coral seems to be the most popular option from Tangerine Tango. See just how similar Tangerine Tango is to Coral.

It will be interesting to see whether Pantone’s colour of the year 2013 Emerald has the same popularity when it trickles through to wedding stationery arena.

Thirdly, the Spring & Summer season is fast approaching and nothing says summer like a punchy coral.  Since we in the invitation business work approximately 6-12 months ahead for wedding stationery, we are now getting summer 2014 wedding orders in and beyond, and it is the summery shades of coral and zesty tangerine shades that are more popular than ever. In addition we are also seeing peachy, blush and more paler shades of coral colours being selected by Brides too.

This week it’s all about colour. Four or five blog posts of colour in fact.

Our obsession with colour is no secret. If you come into the studio, our shelves are filled with colour coordinated rainbow ribbons. Swarovski crystals shimmer on the walls from their pretty glass jars. And our wedding stationery ranges are framed in colour order.

Whilst classic & traditional colours have seen a re-emergence this season (following the Royal Wedding etc). A hot trend for weddings from last season, which looks as though it’s here to stay is COLOUR. Rainbows of colour – which makes the design industry very happy indeed. With so much colour on offer, why settle for just one colour when your planning your special day.

Today we have a beautiful image of a real wedding with rainbow Bridesmaid dresses by Laura Murray Photography via Before the Big Day  (which is a gorgeous UK wedding blog well worth bookmarking) and paired these images with suggestions of coordinating wedding invitations to suit, which are available in all colours of the rainbow:

Hot Trends: Ivory Invitations, black invitations, burgundy invitations, Hot Pink invitations, coral invitations, Gold invitations & yellow invites

Hot Trends: Sage Green Invitations, Aqua invitations, Cobalt blue invitations, lilac & Lavender invitations, Fuchsia invitations, Blush & baby pink invitations All the above designs are available from www.madewithlovedesigns.co.uk. We’ve put together some pretty rainbow mood boards filled with snippets of some of the prettiest rainbow wedding images on the web, to inspire you. We plan to show these on the blog throughout the week. Excited? We can’t wait to show these pretties.
