10 Trending Colours for Spring 2017

Pantone have released their 2017 colours! So what has this got to do with your wedding you may be asking.. 
The Pantone Matching System (PMS) is a standardised colouur reproduction system, which has been used for over 40 years, primarily for printing purposes in a variety of industries, from design, architecture, fashion and crafts

Every year Pantone releases a set of  colours and these will set the precedence for fashion, home decor and even advertising industry as well as graphic designers. 

Have you ever wondered why all the clothes in the shops end up being the same colours despite them coming from different shops? London Fashion Week, that's how and it's all down to Pantone! 

Still not sure what this has to do with your wedding? It's simple really. Because we get so used to seeing these colours all over the place, they get mixed up into our psyche and suddenly before you know it, you'll want the colours too. Not because they are trendy (although they are bang on trend) but because your unconscious mind suddenly really likes the colours. 

Here are the colours for Spring 2017, so if you are planning a 2017 wedding you might like to sit up and take notice



Of course colours will vary from screen to screen...
but here are the colours when used on a graphic.

I must admit, I'm not a fan of muted, dulled down colours, but I said that about the 2016 colours.... next thing you know the house is being redecorated and the rest is history!
I must admit, I find Pantones description of the colours slightly comforting and warms me to these colours somewhat. 

So... what do you think?
Like them?
Loathe them? 
Are you using these in your wedding theme? 
Comment below, we love hearing from you.

Warmest wishes on a cold, wet and very windy, 
 North Yorkshire day.

Ivy Themed Wedding Invitations, Stationery & the tradition of Ivy when used in the bridal bouquet


IVY perfect for an Autumn, Rustic, Country, Nature themed wedding. 
Below are just some of the Ivy Inspired invitations and stationery we have made and the beauty of Ivy is it goes with absolutely anything. 

The tradition of Ivy in the Bridal Bouquet:
. Ivy is representative of eternal fidelity and wedded bliss. A popular tradition during Victorian times was for the bride to plant the Ivy contained in her bouquet after the wedding and pass the resulting sprigs from that same plant to her daughters and granddaughters for use in their bridal bouquets.

Gatefold, Foiled wedding invitations
Custom made for Rebecca & Graham










The gatefold style doesn't suit al designs,
but our ivy design in particular, with it's cascading lines 
made it perfectly suited to this style and shape. 


The Evening Invitations were a flat style invitation, less complex,
and the little gift request cards finished off the suite perfectly. 

   
Rebecca & Graham chose a mixture of dark green and silver foil for their invitations. 


And I had to add this beautiful cake
found on Pinterest, but created by 
The Cake Shop


 Beautiful Ivy covered cake
available from THE CAKE STORE

We've breated these new watercolour, flat invitations 
and added them to our website
you can find them HERE
We can carry this design right through to your on the day items too. 





And finally... the wedding post box,
The tumbling ivy is cut from paper



And another one with more ivy for another customer
