Trend Alert: The Not-So-White Wedding
You’re probably flipping through your mile-high pile of wedding magazines desperately searching for a way to subtly add some colour to your special day. In the back of your mind you can hear your Mum telling you to stick with white and play it safe. But sorry mum, it’s 2018 and it’s time to say goodbye to the traditional white wedding and have a little fun.
If walking down the aisle in a red dress wasn’t quite what you had in mind, don’t fret. Make your wedding exude personality by draping it in this year’s trendiest colours. Let’s take a look at the stylish palette that will transform wedding halls into heavenly temples this year.

You’re looking for something a little different, but you don’t want to completely throw your conservative colour scheme out the window. The answer is Navy. Navy is classically beautiful and will work with almost every colour scheme. Dress up a sterile-white venue to look regal and luxurious - you could even match it with the groomsmen’s suits!
So you’re a romantic, red roses and gold accessories-wearing type. Burgundy is your colour! It’s classical, mature and fashionable. If you’re looking for a shade that will make your venue feel warm and inviting, then don’t look past a beautiful deep-velvety glamour.
Dreaming of a beautiful garden wedding without having to count on Melbourne’s temperamental weather? Bottle-green accents will tease your venue in the atmosphere of foliage and you get the added bonus of not stressing about the rain. Tied in with neutral tones and floral arrangements, bottle-green will make your venue feel natural and inviting.
There’s a fine-line between glamorous and outright tacky. If playing with boundaries is your jam, then purple is the way to go. Elegant purple and violet hues will transform your venue into an alluring masterpiece fit for an A-Lister’s wedding. These colours are especially beautiful in sunlit venues and at night when they’re illuminated by strings of fairy lights.
Your special day should just be as colourful as you, so forget the preconceptions that a wedding should be 50 shades of white. Let our styling experience guide the way and check out our gallery for some inspiration.
