Tips or Trends Tuesday: Trend: Color Blocking

Many of us know how color blocking in fashion can make a very bold statement by putting two or more colors next to one another. Fashion has been embracing color blocking once again and the technique is making its way in to the wedding world.

Long gone are the days when, “what are your colors” almost always included white and one other color. Couples now are looking to make statements with their decor providing their guest with more than a ceremony followed by a reception. Today’s couples are looking to provide an experience and many times an artistic one. Color blocking is a great way to put some bold color and excitement in to your wedding experience.

Check out these great color blocking palettes and perhaps consider color blocking with your favorite colors for your own wedding.
