You Mean The World To Me

Throughout each year the global masterminds of colour at Pantone deliver delicious reports on the hot hues for the seasons ahead. Having studied the SS14 catwalk shows of New York Fashion week, Pantone produced the palette featured above which highlights the central colours for spring next year.  


If you’re looking for some stylish ideas for your big day theme, these fashion forward colour combinations are guaranteed to tick all of the trend boxes. Plus, there will be a plentiful supply of wedding day pretty hitting the shops in these pastels early next year as predicted by Pantone, thus making it super easy to find the perfect pieces to match your theme.


First up for inspiration from the Pantone palette was Violet Tulip

This week, let cheerful Freesia brighten your big day.  

“…a blazing yellow that is sure to illuminate wardrobes this season. A tropical, floral-inspired shade, Freesia’s warmth and energy help set the stage…”

“Designers take a modern twist on the traditional for spring 2014 by pairing soft pastels with vivid brights to create a colorful equilibrium. Inspired by a mixture of blooming flowers, travels abroad and strong, confident women, designers use color to refresh, revive and defy conventional wisdom.” – pantone.com


“This season, consumers are looking for a state of thoughtful, emotional and artistic equilibrium,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®. “While this need for stability is reflected in the composition of the palette, the inherent versatility of the individual colors allows for experimentation with new looks and color combinations.”


Check out some colourful ways to incorporate fresh floral freesia inspiration into your wedding…

Brilliant Blooms – Your Favourite Flowers

Unless you’re a real green fingers, you might find choosing your wedding day blooms a bit overwhelming.

A good place to start is by thinking about what flowers you really like. You might have a couple of old favourites, or perhaps you have flowers that have a special meaning to you, or if you’re a real flower novice (like we were!) start by looking at images of flowers and make a list of a few florals that catch your eye.


It is worthwhile paying a visit to some of your local florists for ideas and to see flowers in the flesh too. If you’re getting married abroad, find out from your wedding planner or florist what kind of flowers you can have and if there are any that you can’t have, as some flowers might not be available where and when you plan to get married.


To help you get started and to bring you a little floral inspiration, we asked some of you lovely You Mean The World To Me readers what your favourite flowers are and why and we’ll be bringing you the selections over the coming weeks. First up, we have two very different classics to show you today…


Cream roses

“I love the timeless, classic and sophisticated cream rose. As a flower they are beautiful and a little understated. Combined with pearls they take me back to the amazing glamour of the 50s. A really simple choice for a wedding but sometimes simple and understated wins every time…..”

– Kate, Manchester
