Help has arrived in the form of The Event Affairs Team who has you covered – choosing your colours doesn’t have to be a huge struggle! All you need to do is ask yourself a few questions about the mood and the ambiance that you wish to create for yourself and your guests at your event or wedding. It comes down to what you want to evoke on the day in question – a sense of drama with the bold and bright or a romantic essence with softer pastels.

Good news: you can calm your now over stimulated imagination as we have narrowed down the top choices from every colour palette conceivable, just for you, to our top two favourites. It’s out with this seasons bold and bright and in with the new prettiest of pastels moving toward the cooler and softer side of the colour spectrum. A delicate collection of understated brights, pale pastels and nature-like neutrals take center stage redolent of simpler times restoring a sense of well-being as we head into the warmer months of Spring.

Enter Peached Pink and Apple Mint from the Milky Pastels colour group.

These milky shades are dominating the Spring and Summer palettes, giving a bit of a renovation from the previous seasons sugary pastels.

Peached Pink is a key element in the Pastels range as it gives off a warmer overall appearance that will come in handy if you are planning a Spring wedding for example. This stunning shade would be perfect for accessories and to add contrasting accents throughout your wedding, from the flowers in your bouquet, to the colour of your bridesmaids dresses or a pair of Dior’s primary pop heels in this shade!

Apple Mint is soft and feminine and transforms styles with a fresh new appeal. This delicate and pale almost Sea Green works exceedingly well on fabrics for instance, taking a rather ordinary event to another level as a table cloth or edged napkin. Perhaps you are a more daring bride keen to make the undertone of your wedding dress a pale Mint or think outside of the box by making your “something Blue” a “something Mint”!

So sure, colour selection can be a bit overwhelming at first shot, but once you start tapering down your ideas and options, taking venue and décor into account, it’s a really enjoyable part of the planning process!

Remember that whether you are splashing paint on a canvas like Jackson Pollock, picking tablecloths for your Year End Event or selecting the flower colours for your wedding, don’t be afraid to take a bold and exciting new step – do your research and act in confidence!

Until Next Week!
