Having posted about what we are seeing as one of the latest fashions for weddings we thought we would work up the marble theme a bit more. This helps us as we get our creative hats on to look at styles, colours and designs for our weddings.
I created this inspiration board this evening from Pinterest to look at this style in detail.
For me marbles are quite a cold medium to work with.
I have marble floors in my home and whilst I never really loved them at first, they have warmed on me over the past 10 years as they really are quite a neutral background to work with when designing my home. I have added lovely rugs and my floors never clash with any of my colour schemes throughout my house.
Greys have always been a favourite colour of mine for both clothes and in my home, easily mixed with both neutrals, creams, golds and silvers and of course pops of bright colours such as fuschia, turquoise, fresh greens and purples. My love of cushions and lighting comes into play here when I introduce the brighter colours!
As I look at the marble elements for styling your wedding day I think they are best kept to a minimum.
We love the marbled stationery and the idea of incorporating it into your cakes but really, as it is such a cold medium, I cannot say I love it for larger items. It somehow reminds me, dare I say, of tombstones.
I do recall a wedding I saw a few years ago where a local designer had made tablets in stone. It was awful and immediately reminded me of headstones so I do think you have to be careful when using this element for your wedding day and put some thought into how to incorporate it. For example here I have used this image in the design board for the overall feel but I don’t like the large marble background wedding sign.
However, done well and with the right balance of rose golds, foliages, mixing in other colours and materials to break it up looks fabulous. We love the rose gold trends for this year and already have updated our stock to include rose gold sequin table runners 🙂
We love the geometric shapes with the marble as a contrast, but then the whole scheme needs softening using foliages such as succulents, cactii and eucalyptus, plants with a grey green hue and if you really want to brighten it up throw in some hot pinks or deep blues to finish a beautiful colour scheme.
