Inspiration: Something Blue Bridal Mood Board


This morning we are sharing a gorgeous mood board we recently created for Love My Dress that was inspired by the Spring 2013 catwalks.  We like to keep a beady eye on what is happening in the world of fashion and we couldn’t help but notice that the Spring 2013 catwalks were awash with a variety of colours including some fabulously strong and energising colours.  A consistent theme across the fashion houses though was the use of palettes that mixed these dynamic, strong colours with neutral shades and this is something that we also recommend in the world of event design.  Balancing bold colours with calmer, softer shades helps to create a balanced look that will ensure you excite and grab the attention of your guests without overwhelming them.

One of our favourite colour combinations from the Spring catwalks was Monaco Blue – a gorgeous, rich shade – and Linen – a light and airy, barely-there colour.  The classic shade of the Monaco blue adds depth to the palette and is a great one for the boys as it lends a masculine edge to proceedings which is effortlessly softened by the romantic hue of the linen.

Opt for understated yet luxurious decor and details and prepare to wow your guests in a coloured gown crafted from diaphanous fabrics.  The overall look: classic, somewhat preppy, sophistication with a soft twist.

Created by Pocketful of Dreams, to provide a little inspiration for your party or event.  Pop over to Love My Dress for the full set of boards for this look.

So this is the #wedding show that gets everyone talking, I'm hoping to make the trip to #london for it next weekend. Anyone going who fancies meeting up for coffee/cocktails and a natter, hit up my inbox, let's chat. #weddingplanner #weddingplanning #weddingstyling #mostcurious
It's Friday whoop whoop! Balloon arches are cool again thanks to @houselarsbuilt #wedding #weddingplanner
Loving all the pastel popping up on the runways. It doesn't have to be sugary sweet it's all in the application. #wedding
Sometimes we just need a little reminder. We're definitely dreamers and proud of being so, constantly thinking up new and better ways of doing things, thinking about how we can improve & what we want to achieve. Tag a friend who needs reminding of this. 👇
Oh @Dior how we love thee. Industrial scaffolding contrasted with delicate pastel pink & shimmering mirrored walls. So inspiring
Working on something a little different in the studio currently. Incorporating the family tartan of one of our #wedding grooms and the brides love of fresh green.
Gamechanger! @hemsleyhemsley #healthyliving #hemsleyhemsley #spiralizer
So I'm honoured to have been nominated for the #20BeautifulWomen challenge, but being the inquisitive creature I am I wanted to understand what it was for & how it started but it seems it's a bit of a mystery. Maybe something to do with the book by Saba Tekle via @huffingtonpost or simply to celebrate women who are beautiful inside and out: visionary, kind, inspiring and empowering women. So yeah I'm all up for that. Author of said book defines a beautiful woman as this: "A beautiful woman shares her story so other women won't feel alone. A beautiful woman is peaceful: she has made peace with her past. A beautiful woman is passionate: she is on fire with a strong desire to change the world. A beautiful woman is purposeful: she knows why she was born and does what she was created here to do. Be beautiful." My 20 beautiful & inspirational ladies are all tagged in - I tried to cheat and add more but it won't let me!
Could not be more excited for my gorgeous client #augustbride #Repost @object_style with @repostapp.
