There has been a bit of a journey of color over the years in the wedding industry. It seems, though, that every season and every decade, there is a desire to leave behind soft hues and go for something BOLD. We've all seen weddings with bright and bold colors that take our breath away, but when someone says they are using a color like orange in their wedding palette, we can't help but hold are breath hoping it won't be awful. Bold colors can be really hard to pull off. turquoise, cobalt blue, fuchsia, orange...all gorgeous colors that done wrong, can make for a very tacky wedding. Below we will go over three simple tips on how to avoid the tacky wedding while embracing the bold!
Tip One: Pair the bold with something taming.If you want to use fuchsia as you main wedding color, we so GO FOR IT. A lot of people say that the bold color should only be the accent. Like wearing bright shoes with a neutral outfit. However, we think that the bold color can be center stage, you just need to frame it with something neutral and soft. Taupe, Grey, Greiges, are all colors that can pretty quickly create a feel of sophistication. So let your fuchsia be bold and beautiful with a neutral backdrop to tame it down a tad.
Tip Two: Let Nature Build Your BoldFlowers are a perfect way to implement your bold colors and still look classy. This doesn't mean dying flowers the colors you want, but using flowers that naturally have your bold color of choice. Along with flowers, you can look at gemstones too! Nature is full of fun, vibrant colors. Use it to your advantage.
Tip Three: Look at the Little DetailsRemember to take advantage of all the ways color can come into play with your wedding accessories. Everything from your wedding invitations to your bouquet to your table numbers can really establish your color scheme, showing off your bold color choices.
The biggest thing you need to do as you work with your wedding planner, is to be sure to think about the big picture and color on purpose!

Four Things to Consider for your Ruby Wedding
Center of Attention or Background?Ruby, as a gemstone and as a wedding color, is most definitely the center of attention. This means that any other colors you have aside the Ruby should be chosen to enhance its beauty and meaning. Being bold should not mean you can't play it up. For example, you may choose it to be a pop of color - steal drawing attention - like in the bouquet of our inspiration collage. Or, it can be dramatically center stage like in the sequin bridesmaid dresses. Ruby has a warmth to it that undercuts the hardness or loudness that can sometime accompany red. This means you really can have Ruby sequin dress with it looking romantic and luxurious and not Vegas show girl.
Meaningful ConnectionsAs a gemstone, Rubies are known to evoke passion and romance. According to crystalvaults.com "ruby has always been associated with love, especially faithful passionate commitment and closeness" and were in fact once thought to be the perfect wedding stone. Really, the only thing a young couple wants more than to live happily ever after is to live passionately ever after. Food for thought: Have you ever heard of the joke tradition to put a marble in a jar every time.. eh hem...in your first year of marriage and to take a marble out every time *cough* in the years after and even 50 years later you'll still not have emptied the jar? So, maybe using a Ruby as the center stone of your wedding and maybe even your wedding ring will prevent that from being you!
