Monday Mood Board: Colourful July Styling Inspiration
Good morning, lovelies! I do hope that you all had a lovely weekend sprinkled with plenty of sun and of course, an amazing start to July. It’s crazy how fast this year is whizzing by and it seems that it was only a few weeks ago we were snowed in and yet now, we’re experiencing a heat wave. Long may the latter continue!
Today’s ‘Monday Mood Board‘ feature is every bit a summer beauty; an infused wedding with bright pops of colour which is just perfect for any joyous and sun drenched wedding. It seems that in summer weddings are filled with lush greenery, white and blush colours for an understated yet elegant colour palette, which of course, we’re all for! But what sort of ideas are available for when you want to create something a little more colourful, playful and experimental? We’ve got you covered!
This morning, we will show you just how you can re-create an infused wedding on your very own special day. Whether you are seeking suppliers to help you out, or an affair filled with plenty of handmade details – it’s a gorgeous colour scheme to pursue.

Summer is a time to bring on the colour. Mix up bright pops of colour with more understated hues for an ethereal vibe or go all out for a Mexican fiesta theme (pom-poms included, of course!). Today, we are feeling all kinds of pretty with these boards featuring larger than life blooms paired with elegant detailing and teeny rustic detailing.
The wonderful thing about having a colour scheme featuring bright pops of colour is that it can work well for both a dreamy Bohemian wedding or too, a classical affair. Choose from chic Tipis opulent stately homes to build this joyous colour scheme around.

The great thing about choosing bright colours to tie your wedding together is that you can use nearly any colour combo under the hot summer sun. Yellow and Pink’s are complementary, making it a seamless choice for any wedding style. Add in a pretty punch of Pink and wavy blue-green for a modish palette that’s abounding in happiness, joy, and whimsical bliss.
Draw inspiration from summer blooms to create a kaleidoscope of colour for your wedding day! There’s nothing more breathtaking in summer than vibrant multi coloured bouquets and centre pieces. Oh, and we too love ribbons, colourful buttonholes and floral crowns.
After all, surely any excuse to wear flowers in your hair goes, right?

Stationery is a huge part of letting guests know your theme. Give them a little taster of the day you have planned with colourful save the date cards and RSPV’s.
Have you ever received an invitation in the mail and been able to envision the wedding day? Well, if your answer is no then you’ve probably never received an invitation that properly set the tone. If your answer is yes, that bride and groom did it exactly right.
The invitation to anything, especially a wedding, should exude the theme of the event to come. A full-on extravagant bash complete with colour, pom-poms and dancing should have an equally extravagant invitation. It’s the perfect opportunity to let guests know what sort of attire to wear and what to expect.
