2014 colours

Pantone might have picked radiant orchid but the i do it yourself blog readers have gone for aqua turquoise as their colour of choice for this year. Purple came a very close second while poor old brown wins the wooden spoon for coming in last. If you're having trouble choosing a wedding colour scheme, your favourite colour is a great place to start. We'll be posting more this year about trends and colours so watch this space, and remember if you're really stuck drop us an email or comment on our facebook page and we'll see if we can help!
