What makes the Colourful watercolour 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.

Colourful watercolour 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 pattern, 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.

How to get the colourful watercolour look for your wedding?

Getting this bold colourful look means making the right choices when it comes to the details. At the Wedding Alchemist, we make sure we pick out all the right pieces to get that moody but colourful look just right.:


Coloured glassware

Whether these are for candles to sit in, a single floral stem or a full vase of flowers, try and keep to a particular colour and palette to keep some structure to the style.

Watercolour Table Number

Using a watercolour blending techniques to include lots of different tones and with a hint of gold helps your guest identify their table.


Gold Cutlery

Gold is a great additional element to frame all the use of colour. Cutlery, chargers, frames and candlesticks are a great way of adding this complementary material to your colourful wedding.


Golden Pineapple

Adding just a hint of tropical and gold to tie everything together will help that touch of fun and sophistication to your table display.


Tealight Votives

Great for adding light to your table, these can be grouped together as part of table centres, or around other areas of the venue to add a pop of colour.


Watercolour napkins and table runners

Why not bring a splash of colour to define your table setting and as a backdrop for your accessories
