How to Style Your Bright Wedding

Go bolder and brighter for your big day! Adding a burst of colour to your celebrations could be the perfect way to fill your wedding celebrations with personality. For spring and summer, a colourful theme will add fitting, fun details to your reception and perfectly suit the season.

It’s easy to bring in the brights for a huge range of wedding details, from your invitations and stationery to bright themed wedding bouquets, bakes and bunting. Need a little inspiration?

 

Standout Stationery

Our favourite way to make wedding papercrafts personal is to get creating with a Cricut machine. You can design your own wedding style to cut, print and score invitations and more that are perfectly suited to your taste.

Just take a look at these stunning, bright Cricut-made wedding favours from Bespoke Bride.

You can add bright, bold colour to envelopes too if you want to put your own stamp on your stationery another way.

Stamps are a great way to add personalised colour to your wedding stationery while creating consistent designs for every invitation, save the date and more. You can pick out your favourite colour inks to match your theme and combine that with your choice of stamps – from simple dotty patterns like above to more complex designs.

As well as stamping, achieve that rainbow look for stunning save the dates with vellum and confetti postcards, perfect for creating something that little bit different for your big day.

Table Decorations

Add a pop of colour to every table with spectacular centrepieces, candles, place cards and more! As guests take their seats, you can use all of the classic details – napkins, flowers, glassware – to add vibrant flourishes to the place settings, but why not throw in a few handmade, quirky touches too?

Colourful candles are a stunning way to add colour to any table, and when the light gets low, you can light them to create a magical ambience.

Groundbreaking Florals

The bright wedding theme goes hand in hand with spring and summer seasons, the perfect time for breaking out the colourful florals. You can pick on-season favourites to add a bold, natural element to your hairdo, your cake decoration, your centrepieces and more.

One little thing: going for florals doesn’t have to mean the real deal.

The Brightest of Bakes

A colourful wedding means a colourful cake, giving you free rein to create or design a spectacular showstopper that will indulge your guests’ sweet tooth. There’s plenty of ways to throw in those vibrant touches, from mastering marble to fondant florals to bright buttercream.

You could even go beyond ombre with bold colour combinations and marbling patterns. Check out this spectacular trio of tasty triumphs from the wedding of one of our Hobbycraft colleagues, Lauren.

Another way to add colour to even a simple tiered design is with ribbon. You can use plain white ready-to-roll icing to cover your tasty sponge, and then wrap your cake in bright satin ribbons.

We’ve got a huge variety of ribbons in every shade you could ever wish for! Find your perfect combinations – from plain block colours to charming patterns – by shopping the range of ribbons.
