I am so happy to see that both fashion and bridal runways are using big bursts of color for spring. How does this translate for your wedding? Bland, muted tones are out, so think bright, vivid, inviting colors.
For your reception, consider playing with lighting options to give that extra oomph of high glamour polish and make your favors the envy of every guest by doing them in brighter shades that compliment your overall color scheme. Even having your bridesmaids wear different shades but in the same color family will make your wedding seem less like Wedding 101 and more like the editorial spread of Town and Country.
Remember it's not only the small details that count, but also the overall all look and effect!
