Drum roll please…
I'd like to introduce you all to Rose, the owner and lead designer behind Rose and Ruby Paper Co, a UK based design studio specialising in gorgeous wedding stationery and branding. Over to you, Rose:
At Rose & Ruby, our aesthetic is classic, clean and elegant, combining decorative vintage elements with timeless styling, beautiful type and luxurious papers – always topped with a large sprinkling of pretty!
I love all things elegant and beautiful and am completely obsessed with everything wedding; an addiction first realised whilst planning my own wedding in 2010. I am a bag addict, font geek, neat freak, dog person and you'll probably never see me without a cup of tea on the go.
Rose creates beautiful moodboards using colour palettes and imagery so dreamy you might just have to pinch yourself when you see them.
So it is with great pleasure (and lots of pinching myself) that I get to welcome Rose as a regular contributor on Bridal Musings ~ she'll be here every week sharing one of her artfully curated boards packed full of wedding inspiration and ideas. Yay!
First up is a board inspired by Panatone's 2013 colour of the year, Emerald.

Described by Pantone (the trend setters in all things colour) as:
Lively. Radiant. Lush… A colour of elegance and beauty that enhances our sense of well-being, balance and harmony.
Are you incorporating Emerald tones into your wedding?
Rose's Top Tips To Recreate This Moodboard:
• You needn’t go wild to work the Emerald trend. Hints of colour can be subtly chic and just picked out in small flashes. Even a detail as small as picking florals with deep emerald toned leaves has a lovely effect – Roses are great for this and look gorgeous mixed with pale sage and silvery tones to make the green pop.
• Emerald looks lovely with crisp whites and really ornate laces so use it to really make your dress the centre of attention.
• If you’re considering Emerald maids, for a contemporary look the fabrics need to look expensive – don’t go shiny unless its real silk. Stick to soft drapey fabrics with lots of movement for an elegant flowing look.
• Emerald evokes old school glamour when mixed with distressed golden tones adding a lovely classy vintage edge. Steep your reception in candlelight to set the romantic mood and help emerald sparkle into the night.
Thanks so much to Rose of Rose and Ruby Paper Co for sharing this exquisite and elegant moodboard ~ it's the first of many more to come so please do join me in giving her a big, warm welcome to Bridal Musings!
