One of the essential wedding planning choices is color. What type of theme and wedding look to what type of decor and wedding flower choices all center around that first question, color.
Some of the in colors right now, in fashion, home decor and weddings are bold, bright colors. Pantone’s color of the year, “tangerine tango”, has great competition with some of these vivid, powerful hues. Fuchsia is one of these trendy in hues that have begun popping up across fashion boards and into wedding decor.
Devin Dipalma, from destinationweddings.com, recently blogged about the new in color fuchsia in Brighten up your Wedding with Fuchsia Hues. “The bright colored fuchsia hue is becoming popular in all aspects of fashion and home décor and it looks amazing at weddings.”
Devin shares, “flowers are a great way to incorporate fuchsia.” Styling for fuchsia wedding flowers can go two ways a well thought out fun, colorful mix of wedding flower colors or by keeping fuchsia wedding flowers as your main accent. “When deciding on your perfect centerpieces, try mixing the fuchsia flowers with colors like peach, a light yellow and a bright blue. If you want a cleaner look and only want to use fuchsia, try going with a crisp white or metallic colors to create beautiful settings.”
Fuchsia wedding flowers can be styled to fit a variety of wedding themes. For a light, fun or whimsical look mix in orange or blue wedding flowers with main fuchsia wedding flowers like peonies, ranunculus, gerbera daisy or dahlias, with an accent of neutral white or creams and greenery. Wedding bouquets can be hand-tied with raffia, ribbon or a vintage scarf.
For a more modern wedding look. Incorporate timeless fuchsia wedding flowers like roses, calla lilies and orchids with neutrals and metallics. Metallics in your wedding decor like vases and candle holders will keep with the clean look and accent your main fuchsia wedding flowers. Don’t over do the fuchsia color when using it as your main wedding flower color but look for ways to use it in other areas of decor such as your linens or on favors for guests.
