Don’t you just love this season’s wedding colours? With bold bright tones mixed with nudes and subtle pastels, spring 2016 weddings are going to be awash with colour. This season’s colours pair perfectly with each other, giving you a diverse array of colours to play with. Whether you choose one colour or a mixture, there is a confetti mix just for you. Shropshire Petals share their top spring 2016 wedding confetti mixes…
Rose Quartz, a pretty pastel pink, is said to be the 2016 colour of the year! This gentle tone conveys compassion and a sense of composure. If you want to match this colour Shropshire Petals recommends their Candyfloss confetti.
Rose Quartz pairs well with Serenity, Peach Echo and Lilac Grey. If you want to include all of these colours, create a unique pick and mix using Candyfloss, Frosted Blue and Lady Grey delphinium petals with a touch of Promise rose petals for a delicate colour splash.
Peach Echo, a dusky orangey pink, is a warm shade of orange, and its inviting tone is great for being playful with colours. Shropshire Petals recommends their Coral Reef confetti mix, which includes hints of orange, pink and ivory.
With such distinctive colours it can be difficult to find all of the details you want in your chosen colour scheme; include different shades around your chosen colour, which will make it easier to choose details as they don’t have to exactly match your wedding colour scheme.
Serenity, a calming blue, is weightless and airy, with its smooth tone, just like the sky. For a bold colour splash on your wedding day, Serenity pairs well with Peach Echo, Snorkel Blue and Buttercup.
Shropshire Petals recommends you mix these colours using Candyfloss, Frosted Blue, Ivory and Golden Slumber.
If you would like a more subtle mix, Icing Sugar, Duck Egg and Golden Slumber would look stunning in your wedding photos.
Snorkel Blue, a lovely naval tone, is bursting with energy, and is perfect combined with Ivory for a simple, yet bold wedding theme.
Add as much or as little colour as you wish; Shropshire Petals recommends their Something Blue. Snorkel Blue pairs well with Buttercup, Iced Coffee and Peach Echo.
Buttercup, a sunny, happy shade of yellow, is perfect for a spring wedding. This stunning colour can be dressed up by pairing it with other tones such as, Serenity, Snorkel Blue and Lilac Grey. If you want to keep your confetti simple, mix it with ivory or paler shades.
Shropshire Petals recommends their bright Sunshine Kisses mix of Honey’b calendula petals and Icing Sugar delphiniums.
Limpet Shell Weather
Limpet Shell Weather, a popular pastel green, is crisp, clear, clean and defined. This modern tone evokes tranquillity and freshness, perfect if you want a subtle wedding theme, with a hint of colour.
This can be a difficult tone to match your details too, so why not combine it with Peach Echo, Rose Quartz or Iced Coffee.
Shropshire Petals recommends a contrast in colours, picking a few pastel shades to complement such as Summer Nights, or even Icing Sugar on its own.
Lilac Grey, an edgy neutral shade of grey, is great for vintage weddings. Shropshire Petals recommends you mix this lovely grey tone with their ivory Winters Morn delphinium petals.
Add a touch of Serenity and Rose Quartz if you want to add more colour to your confetti moment with the Vintage Daydream mix.
Lilac Grey also pairs well with Green Flash, Fiesta and Iced Coffee.
Fiesta, an exciting, fiery tone of red, is strong colour, which provides a stark contrast to the more calming colours. Fiesta pairs well with Green Flash; Shropshire Petals recommends you mix these two together with some ivory for a striking confetti mix.
A pick and mix of Icing Sugar, Envy and Romeo and Juliet will really stand out on photos. Fiesta also pairs well with Snorkel Blue and Limpet Shell.
Iced Coffee, a delicate tone of brown, is said to be a transitional colour that will take us through the seasons, so expect to see this around all year. This soft and subtle colour works well mixed with Serenity, Rose Quartz and Lilac Grey. Shropshire Petals recommends you combine other subtle colours, such as a pick and mix of Icing Sugar and Frosted Blue delphiniums, adding some Delilah rose petals.
These colours work really well for vintage weddings and allow you to combine other neutral shades, without the colours being overbearing.
Green Flash, a bold shade of green, is a vivid, fresh tone, perfect for spring weddings. It pairs well with Snorkel Blue, Limpet Shell and Serenity.
If you would like strong colours, Shropshire Petals recommends a pick and mix of Midnight Blue and Envy.
However, if you want something more subtle, a mix of Icing Sugar, Something Blue and Envy would work perfectly.
