Go up in smoke
But make it the good kind! We're talking those dreamy smoke flares that come in every shade of the rainbow and bring your bridesmaid and couple's photos to life.
Picture you and your best girls striding down a path with flares in burnt orange and blue billowing behind you, or better yet, reflected in the water at a lakeside venue.
Dazzle with the detail

Celebrate with a bang
Bespoke firework displays are becoming more achievable than ever thanks to the availability of exclusive-use wedding venues. And while you can definitely DIY the sparklers, the big display is best left to the experts. A brilliant finale after a night on the dance floor and one of the 2020 wedding trends certain to make your guests' eyes sparkle.

Light it up
The warm whites of festoon lights and twinkling candles create a romantic feel, but with colour set to be fully saturated for 2020 wedding trends, it's time to turn things up a notch.
Think colour coordinated up-lighters bathing the walls for your banquet, before pulsing to the DJ's beat. Add a rustic touch to barn big days with coloured fire cones, which light up in rainbow tones as they burn in the fire pit.
As colourful wedding ideas take centre stage, it's time to take influence from countries around the world. Think luxe marquee and country house receptions styled with an exotic boho fiesta theme, complete with blazing colours, flamboyant pampas grass installations and ceiling lanterns galore.
For an elegant take, look to jewel tones to add sophisticated style without sacrificing colour intensity. On the flower front, dahlias, chrysanthemums and even tulips will be key choices.

An instant way to fill your venue with colour is to lay it on the tables, literally. Ask your venue if you can hire in cloths or runners in your chosen colour scheme. A small investment adds a huge impact, especially when teamed with brightly coloured serviettes and plate chargers too.

All that sparkles
Diamonds may be a girl’s best friend, but they’re also fantastic for adding sparkle to brightly coloured gemstones. Bright wedding ideas have never been easier to incorporate.
A subtle way to add a dash of colour to your wedding day look is to accessorise with vibrant jewellery. Sapphires will provide bursts of blue, whilst amethysts offer a delicate purple.
Choose colourful earrings and a matching necklace to add understated colour to your look.
Swing from the ceilings
Paper lanterns are a beautiful and budget friendly addition to wedding décor. They can be easily assembled and dotted around your venue, bringing it to life.
They come in almost every colour imaginable, so you can go as colourful as you wish. Hang them from tree branches to transform outdoor spaces or make use of character features like beams by hanging them indoors.
