Pretty in Pastel for Kate & Russell

One of the  biggest trends at the moment is what we call the "festival" look and it opens the door (or should that be gate) to a whole world of colour, fun and fabulousness! 

The beauty is that you can mix and match a whole heap of colours and textiles without the worry of anything clashing or picking a single colour that won't work for your bridesmaids. 

The Lyceum in Port Sunlight provides the perfect canvas for this look! 

It also means you can save money...honestly! 

How? 

Well you can shop around - but in your items from different places where you get the best deal. As long as you stick to the same palette you'll be onto a winner. 

Kate & Russell did just this - and while we provided the chair covers and pretty multi coloured sashes in mint, yellow, pink, lavender and blue - they found some amazing honeycomb balls, pinwheels, bunting and mini suitcases online and in bargain shops around the Wirral to add some extra colour to the day.

There was also a distinct vintage feel to the room with the addition of old books, vintage table cloths and the couple picked a traditional afternoon tea to serve to their guests in vintage china teacups. 

This look won't work well in every venue - you have to be careful about the style and decor of your venue no matter what theme you're looking for - but The Lyceum in Port Sunlight was the perfect backdrop for this look.

So if you're worried about what colour to pick then why not give this a try...mix and match your decor, your bridesmaids dresses, shoes, flowers and ties - we promise you won't be disappointed!
