Trending Now: Neon Wedding Décor
Most couples don't go bold when selecting their wedding color palettes, but that doesn't mean you can't. If you're looking to break from tradition, consider hues that are rarely utilized at celebrations: neon. Not sure if your classic venue or wedding style can handle a fluorescent hue? Don't be. Contemporary brides and grooms are pairing neon shades with neutrals to create big-day color schemes that make a statement, but still feel refined. And, as you'll discover after seeing the photos ahead, neon doesn't have to define your event design. From linens and chargers to napkins and place cards, showcasing these energetic colorways in small doses can electrify your event's aesthetic without overwhelming your space.
Even in edible form, neon can enhance your wedding design. Just take this cake by Sweet Novelette, for example. The pros elevated this citrus-themed dessert station with a white three-tier cake, which they painted with bright yellow-and-orange fruits. Other sweets, like frosting- or fondant-covered cookies, popsicles, and lemon custard pies can brighten up your table, too, drawing guest's attention to your yummy offerings. We guarantee that asking your caterers to work a little neon into your spread will entice your friends and family to dig in.
Of course, not every couple wants to take a subtle approach to neon. For brides who want to go bright, make like one woman ahead and wear a splashy pink wedding dress down the aisle. And for the grooms? A vivid boutonnière will ensure that all eyes are on you. Whether you choose to work one of these fluorescent shades into your ensemble or décor landscape, one thing is certain: The neon wedding trend is proof that big-day color is back in a big and bold way.
