Happy new year everyone! It has been a while since I've blogged - my little boy is 2 months old now and getting bigger by the minute - but he is certainly a handful! I've been doing some wedding stationery orders and even co-ordinated a beautiful castle wedding on New Year's Eve in Cloghan Castle in Galway ( that will feature on the blog in a few months), but it is only now that I am starting to get back to normal, and my brain is beginning to work again so that I can write about my favourite topic - weddings! From here on out you'll be enjoying weekly inspirational blog posts to help you plan your wedding.
For my first post of 2016, I'm talking about rose quartz and serenity - not the precious stone and the mood (although you should definitely practice being serene for your wedding!) - but the Pantone Spring 2016 colours
. Usually they pick just one, but we have been blessed with two beautiful shades which I think will work for any season this year. Rose quartz is a soft rosy pink, while serenity is a beautiful, cool blue tone.
Both are quite gentle colours that will create a beautiful colour scheme for your wedding, either alone or together. Serenity would look awesome for a winter or early spring wedding combined with whites, creams and metallic shades, or combined with a deeper blue or emerald green for a summer wedding. Rose Quartz is ideal for a late spring or summer wedding, combined with fuchsia pink and sparkling gold. Alternatively, team it with deep shades of red and copper for an autumn celebration.
