Nifty Neon

Nothing creates more of a party atmosphere than neon, and if you're aiming for a more celebratory, relaxed atmosphere this could be an amazing set of colours for your wedding! 

We're not talking 80's flashbacks of acid green leg warmers or glow sticks - neon does have a sophisticated side, even if it is a playful one.

The trick to steering your wedding away from a 90's rave vibe and towards a sleek theme is to use neon in moderation.

Tiny bursts of bright pink, green and yellow in garlands, place cards or decorative twine is ideal. Multi-coloured neon bridesmaids dresses… not so much.

Neon theming needs to be kept fresh and crisp, so try teaming with plenty of white or grey for a really modern look. Steer clear of black or other dark colours - we don't want to venture into disco territory now!

Neon is also a fun choice for guest outfits. For just a pop of fluoro try a necklace, cuff or subtle pair of earrings. 





Or, if you're looking to make a statement, why not try top to toe neon taking inspiration from Christopher Kane's 2011 Spring Collection.

Team with beige or other neutrals for instant neon chic!
