I’m sure this week’s wedding inspiration board by the fabulous Rose and Ruby Paper Co. breaks some kind of unwritten rule about colour matching and palettes.
But here at Bridal Musings, we believe there are no hard and fast rules when it comes to your big day!
Weddings are all about mixing colours, textures, patterns, styles, traditions (and people) that you and your partner love – so don’t feel bound by rules or expectations, just find the perfect combination for you.*
Poppy, Pink & Primrose Yellow Wedding
Yellow, red and pink together are generally not a go to colour combination, but put them together in the right way and they really can look amazing.
Keep it modern with cutting edge floral design and gorgeous luxe accessories (red Louboutins anyone..?) and incorporate original vintage pieces to add an authentic feel.

– Go retro on your cake. A traditional 1950s style tiered cake with bride and groom figurine topper (there are some fantastic finds on Etsy) and fancy icing can look so retro but so right!
– Vintage pieces such as original 50s prom dresses for your bridesmaids and decorative statement items for your venue decor like stacked crockery, fun vintage books and even fab furniture pieces will really make a statement.
– Your florals can provide fab feature flashes of colour and playing with scale can look really incredible. Oversized blooms like tree peonies and giant magnolia blooms mixed with billy balls and a hint of greenery will look really stunning.
– Finish the look with super fabulous shoes and a flash of bright lipstick.
