I said ‘yes’! And so did they !
Now its time to style your girls !
Brides are becoming more generous when it comes to offering choices of gown style to their bridesmaids. The transition in choice of colour through Winter to Spring is also more casual; we’re seeing a lot more added touch of excitement too !
The old-vintage is modernised from the softness of dusty blue tones with a fired up deep Sangria or subdued Fuchsia . This new palette is coupled with a soft Lavender, Mulberry purple and glistening Whites and Silver. The Navy Peony is iced over with a silvered light blue; overall an exciting palette neutralised by shimmer highlights lighting up our Australian wedded aisles.
Some may call it ‘Navy’ as seen to the right in Jasmines stunning Belsoie Collection or it may be likened to Sorella Vita’s or Mori Lees’s lighter ‘Sapphire’. Jenny Packham calls it ‘Sofia Blue’ and Jenny Yoo goes deeper with her ‘Evening Blue’.
Whichever your chosen go to in blue; we think these Pantone shades look amazing !
And this mix of colours ! See below for styling ideas with Navy, Fuchsia, Sangria and Silvers !
With Winter comes cold days, the thought of Spring gets us all excited. To consider anything ‘full bloom’ gets the mind charged and energised ! Spring brings colour, tone, contrasts and a willingness to experiment. Some love to go soft; bring in a slight warmth within their colour swatch; a good transition from the cool months of winter to mid Spring. We find girls love Rosey tones, the softness of silver and a mix of contrasts that reflect the beauty of the new natural greenery we see outdoors that welcome the beauty of September. There is an underlying beauty in combining a little from Autumn with deeper tones from Winter and blending through to the warmer Spring, such a vast colour palette to work with.
Our styling team at F&A will help you along with which accessories will work best with a variety of colour sets.
Here is one of our favourites; Rose tones xx
We start with the delicate of all; Rose tones. You may refer to it as Jadores’ Antique Pink, Jenny Yoo’s Cinnamon Rose, Hayley Paige super soft Dusty Rose, Vera Wangs Chianti or Mori Lee’s Desert Rose to her uplifting and brighter Rosewood.
It is a reminiscent take of our old favourite Rose Quartz. A re-ignited favourite with metallic flows; we just love it.
Which colours style well with Rose tones this Spring 2020? Our vision is deep vintage greens, pale platinum with a pinch of mint, slate and our much loved Spanish Olive.
See Pantone swatches below.
So soft and so sweet Dusty Rose also reflects elegantly against cashmere and the lightness of sage and deep greens of our floral choices; the cake; we’re in heaven !
Its no wonder current brides are holding onto the innocence of Rose.
Below are some ideas for your girls to look their best on your special day.
