How Colour Inspiration Strikes

orange and blue wedding moodboard by Dessy

The other day I got into a lift and saw a woman carrying the most fantastic laptop bag.

It was faced in a beautiful soft leather with an interior in cornflower blue. Fabulous.

(Actually, something like a gorgeous laptop bag is a good way to spoil yourself - it's something you're likely to use every day and so you'll certainly get your money's worth on the cost per use ratio.)

Anyway, I complimented her on the bag and she said, "I had to have it - I just loved the colour combination."

Me too. So afterwards I went away and thought what a great colour scheme cornflower blue and a soft clementine orange would make. Fantastic for a spring, summer or autumn wedding. You could give your bridesmaids a choice of colour for their dresses (and of course let them choose their own necklines). Then cross contrast your accessories - mixing cornflower blue with maybe orange shoes. Or a sash.

As always, set the theme from the beginning with your wedding stationery. Then when it comes to the day itself, you can choose blue and orange flowers.

Cornflowers of course - then there are marigolds, roses, daffodils, delphiniums ... masses of blue and soft oranges to choose from - just see what your florist has to suggest.

If you'd like to make a moodboard like this yourself, visit Dessy and choose the colours you're interested in from the Pantone selection. It's a completely free wedding planning tool and will give you hours of satisfaction.
