Plan Your Wedding by Color

Here’s a big tip to save you time and money; when choosing your wedding colour scheme firstly pick a colour theme that speaks to you and your partner but also be sure to consist what suits the venue you have chosen. Working with the organic aesthetics of the venue will help to create a cohesive look and save your efforts if there are already decorations in place which can work with your theme.

Also remember to be inclusive having a theme and colour palette reflective of you as a couple will help to encourage buy in from your partner and engage them in the planning process.

For my own wedding I was clear from the start regarding the colour scheme I wanted; for me it had to be green to reflect my oriental background and H2B’s Irish background and it just so happens green is my favourite colour so a winner all round. Our venue was a countryside location a marquee on a backdrop of rolling green fields so it was easier to create a complete theme using the natural backdrop of the countryside landscape, continuing the green theme into my wedding stationery and wedding attire as gentle accents.

Flower-Wrapped Favors How-To

  1. Fill a 3 5/8-inch-high acetate cylinder with candy.
  2. To make flower, cut a 9-by- 30-inch piece of tissue paper. Fold, accordion style, in 5-inch-wide layers. Cut petals in smaller end; unfold and lay on flat surface.
  3. Place cylinder on paper with bottom about 1 inch from uncut end, and roll; tape sides and bottom with double-sided tape. Tie ribbon above top of cylinder.
  4. Gently peel petals down to open flower. If you use a shorter cylinder, reduce height of paper; for a multicolored blossom, wrap a second layer of paper around cylinder after first is secure; secure with ribbon.
