Ways to Colorblock your wedding :)

 I love the colorblock trend, it combines multiple bright and bold colors all at once like aquamarine and citron. So, skip the lace and burlap. Colorblocked wedding details – borrowed from the fashion runways – have wedding planners (and brides!) across the country totally inspired. Steal these fresh new ideas!

1. Contrasting Linens

For this intimate beach side wedding the designer played with two equally bold colors: blue on the tabletops with pops of yellow in the centerpieces and chair covers, and topped it off with a simple white draped fabric canopy to ensure the table was the ultimate focal point.

2. Bright Ceremony Decor

While a colorblock ceremony certainly isn’t for everyone it is possible to pull it off in a chic and sophisticated way. A little bit of draping goes a long way and makes the perfect unexpected ceremony backdrop while a whimsical floral arrangement ties the colors together.
3. A Flirty Bridesmaid Dress

Colorblocked bridesmaid dresses are the perfect way to add a pop of color to the day. Plus, it’s on-trend so there’s actually a chance they’ll wear it again!
4. A Color Blocked Wedding Cake

The wedding cake is one of the easiest places to try out a trend and really make a statement like this one. One tip worth mentioning: Use a subtler color on the base of the cake and let the sugar flowers and accents take on the bold hues (for a more edible look!).
5. Bright Neon Cactus Centerpieces

Can you believe these little guys are actually found in nature? It’s true — these desert “moon cactus” grow and blossom in neon bright yellow, fuchsia and orange. A low arrangement like this makes a striking low-key centerpiece or the perfect accent for a lounge area!
6. Half-Dipped Cupcakes

Maybe a stretch but why not? Chocolate dipped cupcakes topped off with your favorite icing will get you a two-tone look that’s truly decadent.
7. Colorful Sugar Rimmed Glassware

You don’t have to add pineapple juice to pull off a colorful cocktail. Ask your caterer about colorful rimming sugar to turn an ordinary glass into a piece of the décor.
8. Colorblock Save-the-Dates

9. Colorblock Tipped Shoes
For the daring bride, colorblock blue shoes (these ones are from!) are the perfect modern way to pull in your “something blue.”
