Be prepared to see a lot of Neon this spring!! Not only have neon colors plunged into the world of high fashion but they are practically everywhere from boutique store fronts to city streets. And that just means if you haven’t seen them at your best friends wedding yet…prepare to! Weddings are the perfect occasion for the bride and groom to show a bit of themselves through the venue they choose, to the ceremony location, the food selection and of course their color palette. And given that Spring is just around the corner, and neon is clearly this springs fashion trend, I can’t think of a better idea than to incorporate a little neon into your wedding.
Don’t get me wrong, I am not suggesting choosing an entirely neon color palette! In fact if you are picking more than a few neon “pops” of color in only an 8 or so hour time frame (think ceremony + reception) then you may only end up blinding your friends and family (neon colors are known for being bright!) What I am suggesting is to incorporate your favorite neon colors (one or two) into your wedding and color scheme.
So my favorite neon inspired wedding ideas? I LOVE the idea of a bright bridesmaid dress (see below). If you have big wedding party then you may want to think twice, but for only a few bridesmaids this could be the perfect pop of color that every wedding desperately needs. If a yellow dress palette is too much for you to swallow how about combining dress colors? Match the bright yellow with a paler compliment to neutralize the palette a bit (check out the incredible yellow and white + pink combination below). Now if you aren’t looking for the “public” splash of color, how about a pair of neon heels that only you need to see and love! You can also add color with your choice of bouquet, the way you accessorize the bridesmaids (I love these pink and yellow earrings as a bridesmaid gift and a wedding accessory). Or you can incorporate color into your reception… Use it to brighten an all white room or dress up your table setting.
And to think… I bet you didn’t even like neon before this!
