Colourful Wedding Style

The juxtoposition between the dark moody backdrop with the bright colours and lighting create a fun party atmosphere. 

What makes the Moody but Colourful look?

 It can be really fun to introduce colour to your wedding day, but you also need to be careful to avoid that 'kids party' look. Using a dark backdrop will really help the bright colours stand out and with some candles and fairy lights really produce a stunning eye grabbing look. With just a hint of the tropical and a pinch of gold as a backdrop to the colour and reflect the lighting and you are left with a fun yet sophisticated look.  Napkins and table runners can be hand dyed with bright fabric paints and flowers can include pineapples and bright delicate petals with chunky greenery to top it all off. Lastly for a bit of fun add some confetti filled and marbled balloons to add just that bit of big kid to your big day.

Moody but Colourful wedding colours and patterns

Well the colour bit is easy, as much of it as you can! Think about candles, coloured glass, even neon lights to really add a sense of drama. For patter, with all the colour try to keep this to a minimum, here only a watercolour pattern to the napkins and runner, allowing the colour to be the real focus of the scheme.
