The team at Interflora give some great ideas on how to create a beautiful bridal bouquet. “Pure white lilies are great, but they should be complemented by some pinks, yellows, purples or even deeper reds like those you may see in a rose or orchid. For bouquets, big, bold flowers like roses are nice as they can help to create depth that a mixed bunch of flowers needs to look at its best. For buttonholes and corsages, smaller flowers like orchids are ideal, as they look elegant and understated yet colourful at the same time.”

Groomswear experts at Hugh Harris share their top tips on how to add some colour: “Don’t be frightened to add that little bit of colour to your outfit. Adding the correct colour will 'lift' your suit making what can be an ok suit to an amazing suit. The most obvious way to do this is in the neck wear, like choosing a really sharp tie with a slight pattern or a nice bright plain cravat. Waistcoats are also a great way to inject that perfect colour into your suit. Think perhaps to go with a contrasting colour to that of the suit; this will exaggerate the shape and lines of your outfit.”

A fun trend has been to wear brightly coloured wedding shoes. If you are wearing a shorter style wedding gown then your shoes will be a big focal point of your look, so why not experiment with some brightly coloured choices and tie your shoes into your colour scheme. If you are wearing a full length wedding gown then brightly coloured shoes could just be a pop of colour peeping out from beneath your bridal gown.
