TREND OFF! Bright & Bold V Soft & Romantic

The gorgeous images from this trend off come from the weddings of Jessica and Thomas. Feather and Stone Photography (Bright & Bold) and Dylan and Chloe, Mihaja Photography (Soft & Romantic). Click on the couples' names to see more stunning pics from their weddings. 

Recently on Facebook we asked you which theming you liked best, was it soft and romantic, with gorgeous pastels and lace, or would it be bright and bold, with hard hitting reds and gorgeous yellows? 

Both styles are beautiful but there's only one winner ... 



and it is Soft & Romantic with 67% of the votes

Here's our recommendation to duplicate this look for yourself ...

Palette:
Pastels in all hues are ideal for a soft & romantic wedding, for those looking for more contrast in an accent colour, think a pale grey like Jen and Tim had.

Invites & Stationery: 

Cristina Re DIY Designer Stationery
Be sure to bring in your beautiful palette of pastels into your invitations. With a soft theme like this one the aim is to use what's called a 'serif' font (that's the little curly bits on the letters) with a simpler 'san-serif' (without the curly bits) font for your text. For help with stationery head to the QB directory to find the right company for you.

Reception Styling:

Simple clear glassware and centrepieces of flowers in your colour. Karina and Iman used doilies underneath the crystal vases to emphasise the softness of the roses.

The dress: 

Jennifer Gifford Designs
Delicate beading, intricate embroidery, lace, beautiful flowing fabrics and a fitted waist are all good things to look for when finding your 'Soft & Romantic' dress. This gown by Jennifer Gifford Designs has a glorious diamante and floral single shoulder strap that continues on down over the bust to the waist. The pale peach colour is unusual but beautifully striking.

The bridesmaids:

Whether you go floor-length or tea-length, your bridesmaids gowns should be a soft colour that highlights your colour scheme. Jen (above) has dressed her bridesmaids in high-neck pink frocks that are simple but gorgeous and highlight the delicate details of her own dress.
