The absolute easiest way to incorporate your color into your wedding is through your florals! Whether it’s bouquets for you and your bridesmaids, table top decor for your reception or even floral decorations on a champagne wall! Whatever design and color you choose to go with, florals are always so beautiful to look at, and they always tie in the entire wedding day together.


If you’re all for the traditional white cake, go for it! But, you could have some fun by adding color to the design of your cake! Even adding extra dessert for your friends & family to grab, like cupcakes or strawberries!
