Colour Theory & Bold Colours For Wedding Guests

Go bold for your next wedding and embrace the colours that we all know and love. Primary and secondary colours are great options for when you want to go bold and be a little more daring. Floral print dresses and pastel hues are great options for a wedding guest but sometimes we want to dress monotone with bright colours and wear shades that are truly impactful. 

Primary colours are red, blue and yellow while secondary colours are created from mixing two of the primary colours, and these are purple, orange and green. When you dress it monotone with these colours it makes for a bold and dramatic statement which is perfect for a black tie wedding, a formal wedding or even a garden wedding - we love the idea of a red dress contrasting against a lush green backdrop.

Paint It Red

Paint the town red with a gorgeous red gown for your next wedding guest look. Red is a great option for when you want to be bold, and this shade is best suited to those with warm skin and dark hair, but we do believe red is a neutral and most shades of it look good on every kind of skin tone. To be even more daring go for a red tulle gown or a red off the shoulder dress if you want to show a bit of skin. Wear a red dress with matching red earrings or a red crystal headpiece to complete the look. 


Be Bold In Blue

Cobalt blue is the ultimate shade of blue and is perfect for a bold wedding guest look. Made for formal affairs, the blue wedding guest dress can be worn with some matching blue earrings and an edgy blue shoe to take things up a notch for your next wedding. Cobalt blue is best suited to those with cool skin and dark hair as well as those who have warm toned skin and light coloured hair. 


Good In Green

Green is always a good idea and can be dressed up on down in a plethora of ways. A bold shade of kelly green is perfect for those with cool coloured skin and dark hair as well as those who have an olive skin tone and light coloured hair. Opt for a green pleated cocktail dress for a summer wedding or even a beach wedding, the contrast of the bright green against a blue backdrop will be one to completely stun.
