Bright and modern, two words used to describe this wedding by Every last detail and the two words I would love to describe our wedding too. This wedding really caught my eye, not only because it includes a lot of purple but because it highlights a lot of the modern details I would like for our wedding. Find many more stunning photos here.

I love both the brides flowers above and the button holes, they’re just so bright, purple and modern.  I especially like the button hole, its so much more me than the roses traditionally seen in the UK.

I also really like the grooms suit. I’m not really a fan of the grooms outfits that are so popular in the UK, like the tail coats and cravats. I think this look is much more modern. The only thing I’m not sure about is the black tie, I think I would prefer purple.

I love these purple bridesmaids dresses and the flowers are gorgeous too.

And finally, the bride wore gorgeous purple shoes!

To some pastel colours are romantic and girly and the obvious choice for their wedding day. I however  seem to be drawn to the more vibrant, brighter colours. When I think of Tuscany though I think of the greens of the lush rolling hills, the terracotta and the yellows of sunflowers. A lot of the weddings in Tuscany I have seen that have used bright colours have used yellow or orange neither of which would be my ideal choice. I worry that bright, fun weddings like the images below would clash with the stunning Tuscan scenery that will surround the wedding and not look stunning and timeless in our photos. On the other hand I believe your wedding day should be an expression of you the couple and not simply going with the latest trend or sticking to tradition because you think you should.

This week I saw this fabulously colourful rehearsal dinner on Style me Pretty. To see more images from this rehearsal dinner click here.

Also this week on Style me pretty they featured this colourful New Zealand wedding.  I particularly liked the idea of bridesmaids having the same style dress in different colours. Up until now I thought that both my bridesmaid would wear the same colour but not necessarily the same style but I think the use of colour in this wedding is very modern.

I thought I would share my first wedding mood board with you all. At the moment I like the idea of deep purple for bridesmaids dresses with white flowers and a purple bouquet for me. I believe hydrangea’s are in season when we plan to get married in Tuscany. I like the bright coloured ones in this picture and also white hydrangea. I’m not so keen on pastel coloured ones.
