Bright colours

With all the exciting new colour trends that we have seen arrive on the scene in 2009, we couldn’t help ourselves but start designing new invitations!

The latest trend we all got very excited about, is the arrival of bright bold colours, almost luminous in nature, and to combine them with neutral greys and creams, to create fresh yet elegant themes for your weddings.

The trick is to use the bright colours in small amounts, in your accessories, bright bouquets, and just below the knee bridesmaids dresses, and to keep the larger areas in the neutral tones. Such as bright yellows, and bright pinks, combined with warm greys and creams.

The Weddings by Legato Design Team

Recently we have seen many brides who have chosen deep purples and indigos as the colours for their bridesmaid dresses. The colours we have seen are so beautiful, we had to update our colour chart to reflect the latest trends. Look out for our new colours Moon Violet, Aubergine or Purple Sky! Another strong trend for bridesmaids are beautiful new shades of green, such as Olive, Sage or Lime to name a few, that look truly elegant when combined with the warmer shades of cream. And if you are thinking of matching your flowers to these trends, why not look at hydrangeas, snowdrops or freesias. We have created some lovely new designs in the Secret Garden range, using these new colour combinations. A good thing to remember when using cold colours like purples, greens or blues, is to combine them with warmer colours for combinations that work the best. Don’t forget, most of our wedding invitation designs can be changed in colour. Simply take your pick from our chart, and we can change the colours of your chosen design for free, at no extra cost! The designs that can be changed in colour are marked on our price list. Just email us and we will post our latest colour chart to you!
