Spring Wedding Colour Palettes for 2021 – any advice on how to convey a ‘spring’ palette in a future wedding/trends that wedding specialists have noticed and how to illustrate them in real life.
Spring is a return of warmth, and a time for renewal, hope, and colour. Nature awakens and flower gardens take on a new life, while greenery becomes lush and rich with new scents. Our suites for Spring celebrations will often embrace all the new pastel colours of the countryside, the botanical revival, and the world in bloom – featuring florals in various shades, making the stationery as intoxicating as the flowers it represents.
Pink remains a firm favourite for the season, in both its dusty and more vivid hues. We love working with organic, wild, delicate visuals that echo nature itself, as couples choose al fresco, outdoor garden weddings and celebrations under the stars. With an anticipated rise in quintessentially English weddings, pastels including baby pinks, soft blues, lilacs and coloured neutrals would be perfect for a Spring 2021 wedding.
Colours for cheer
In 2021 we will want to get away from the doom, gloom and fear created by the pandemic. Couples will want to celebrate life with a burst of colour; it can be bold such as vibrant yellows, oranges and exotic pinks to make a big statement and inject life into the stationery or pale pinks and delicate corals that give a soft and romantic feel. Colours will be chosen as an expression of freedom and spontaneity. Combining bursts of bold empowering colours with soft pastel neutrals can give the stationery a dynamic contrast.
Nature drives design. A palette of greens, ambassadors for the power of nature, will also be popular in 2021 as a way of paying homage to it.
Floral stationery has always been popular at weddings, bringing us joy with their colours, patterns and vibrancy. Equally appealing in watercolours, with a dash of metallic or stylised, flowers continue to stay on-trend, with particular emphasis on large oversized florals.
With growing recognition of the need to embrace all cultures, heritages and genders in a genuine and inclusive way that respects and honours them, the colour will need to be selected through a global lens. A spring wedding colour palette that suits all.
It’s in the touch
All the ways we can make wedding stationery tactile will be embraced and experimented within 2021. Handmade paper in gorgeous shades, dyed with natural, plant-based dyes has a texture that gives it a charming and comforting dimension.
Hand torn edges complement either a rustic or luxe look, depending on what other treatment you give it. With beautiful paper, a natural and minimal design showcases the paper to beautiful effect.
Sustainability, remaking and recycling what we have will continue to gather momentum as a global trend for 2021. Couples will want to demonstrate their eco-conscious awareness at every opportunity – whether it’s by only using paper from sustainably managed forests or recycling, planting trees, using locally sourced produce, or practices such as using soy and other vegetable-based inks for printing and pastel paper flowers as a keepsake wedding favour.
With the growth in outdoor garden weddings predicted for 2021, couples will look at ways that they can protect the planet, together with incorporating nature into their designs – for example, calligraphy place cards on leaves.
Personal, individual and unique
Couples will want their individuality and personal style to shine through their stationery. Monograms in a spring palette are a truly bespoke way to express this from invitations and menus to signage and order of the day booklets. We anticipate more intimate and sentimental weddings – this would allow for more sumptuous weddings peppered with all the meaningful details that put a couple’s individuality on show.
This could include calligraphy menus and place cards lovingly written by hand, handwritten letters exchanged between the couple on the wedding day and precious keepsake favours.
