Brilliant Blue

Picture this: you’re slipping into your gorgeous wedding gown, just moments away from saying “I do!” Your ‘maids are at your side and as you perfect your look with one last swipe of lipstick, you can’t help but gush over your girls dressed in a dreamy shade of vibrant sapphire! (so much better than overdone dusty pink – am I right?) Dressing your gals in cool tones of blue is the best way to showcase your stunning bridal party without stealing the show. Blue contrasts with white beautifully, by the way!

Animated Amethyst

Rich eggplant and lively amethyst are two colors that enhance an elegant reception venue and get the party started! With purple hues illuminating your uplighting, guests will be drawn to the dance floor. Complete your enlightened evening with a projection of your new monogram! Uplighting is the perfect single step process in transforming even the most basic of reception venues.

Dramatic Ruby

For photography sake (& the sake of feeling absolutely fabulous) many brides choose a bolder makeup palette on their big day. Heavy eyeshadow has a tendency to look gaudy, but a red lip done right enhances a classic appearance. Avoid surprising the groom with a fire-engine tone and opt for a smooth, trendy shade of ruby! Ruby red complements a variety of skin tones as well as enhancing a sparkly smile.

Eloquent Honey

Rich in color and fresh in style, light tones of honey and sparkling gold can be the quintessential way to including jewel tones into your scheme as well as tying together top tier colors. Metallics are a beautiful complement to any primary colors – they also fit every season! Spruce up your bouquet with deep shades of honey by adding yellow roses, chrysanthemums, sunflowers, freesia or falling orchids!

Expressive Emerald

Green is a gorgeous color that evokes spring, rebirth and all things outdoors! When green goes glam and becomes emerald, it’s a natural show stopper. While it can adorn your accessories, mother of the bride’s gown or table cloths, an emerald colored cake or signature drink will wow your guests!

Nude and pastel wedding color combos are expected – express yourself with passionate color by sprinkling jewel tones throughout the ceremony and reception! Offset your white gown, enhance a reception venue with gorgeous uplighting or harmonize with a colorful bouquet! However you incorporate these tones, your details are sure to shine!
