Monday Mood Board: Style Inspiration for May
Happy Monday loves! How are you all on this fine morning? I’m amidst college deadlines so nothing much going on for me this week. I do hope that you have something more exciting planned in your little world of weddings.
In more beautiful news, a new week brings us gorgeous trends and colours that we are crushing over, especially as tomorrow marks the start of May (crazy, right?)! May is a hugely popular month to get wed in, not only is there a royal wedding on the horizon but this month also saw the likes of Kimmy K and Sarah Jessica Parker tie the knot, too. Oh, and not forgetting the two bank holidays to take advantage of.
So, what’s better than to share all of our styling inspirations for this month ahead? On with the pretty…

Elegant & Regal
To start us off this morning we have the prettiest palette which includes all the details. Take inspiration from a neutral colour scheme with plenty of understated and cool tones. It will tie together like an absolute dream, trust us.
By combining plenty of elegant off-white hues, cream colours, blushes and blue’s you will automatically be creating an oh-so dreamy colour scheme that’s royal wedding perfect. We are talking larger than life blooms, and everything down to the teeniest details such as table cloths and coloured jars.
Of course, this colour scheme wouldn’t be complete without plenty of Greenery added to the mix either. An uber cool way to do this? Accessorise your wedding reception with natural herbs such as sage and thyme, add cucumber and lime to your drinks. An easy, yet affordable way to not only style your reception styling, but your catering too.
Would you opt for this cool, chic and stunning theme to carry you into the hotter months of the year? It’s a yes from us!

Pretty In Pink…
Next, for the pink! This time of the year ultimately has to be my favourite for the sole purpose of the blossom trees blooming. They’re such a pretty sight! Not only does blossom provide a picture perfect Instagram image, it too looks gorgeous when incorporated into your wedding. Just imagine getting wed outside under the newly blossomed trees and the natural petals surrounding you.
Not only does the blossom bloom, but it too is a time where everything becomes so much more colourful, and pretty darn gorgeous. Use this to your advantage and perhaps look at incorporating the outdoors in your wedding, whether you opt for a marquee, tipi, or even just take inspiration from the colours and flowers that May blesses us with.
Pop’s of colour that look amazing with pink are corals, pinky-red’s and oranges. Talk to your florist to see how they can give you lots, lots more inspiration for a beautiful wedding in May.

All Things Purple
Finally, we are showcasing a board that is a little like the one above, but yet again it’s another colour which really represents this time of the year; Carnations, Hydrangea, Cosmos and Peonies are just a few names of flowers which come in purple hues that look oh-so pretty for a late Spring or Summer wedding.
And, if the pantone purple of the year isn’t your colour; remember, there are so many different variations of the colour that you don’t just have to stick with one primary shade. Talk to your florist on how you can add a little touch of lilac, or perhaps the darker colour of wine or burgundy hues. The options are endless.
If you are looking for some more inspiration on a purple wedding, we have a gorgeous shoot that we know you will love. A few The Wedding Affair approved suppliers got together, with an added pop of purple with a little bit of sparkle and sun, they created something really magical; the perfect idea for a wedding in the country.
