It’s actually very wonderful that the Pantone colour of the year is GREEN. For years I’ve been adding greenery to my weddings, and somehow gained a little reputation for having a rustic wedding style. It’s true, and I quite like it. The ‘Rustic Wedding Theme’ can be executed in so many ways, but I like to think of my style as ‘down to earth, not too shiny’ and I try so hard to keep it real. I don’t think you need to go over the top at every wedding, and it should always feel like your bride and groom. It’s their day. It’s not about following a trend or keeping up with other planners or stylists. My job is to make their vision to come to life in the most creative and prettiest way possible.
Back in July Kara and I planned and styled Koko + Ziad’s wedding. They were super sweet and trusted us to make their wedding the loveliest it could be. At first, the green element wasn’t so popular but after sourcing inspiration and working with the venue, we created this…
A simple and sophisticated modern wedding. Dusty pink linen tamed with gold touches and contempory chairs worked perfectly in the ballroom. As you can see the green heavy centrepiece was the main focal point but it didn’t look rustic or like it was meant to be outdoors. 😉 The ballroom at FIVE Palm Jumeirah is one of the best I’ve ever seen. It has a gold and cream geometric pattern on the carpet and gold lines edge the wood around the ballroom. If you’re on the hunt for a wedding venue in Dubai, this is a must visit.
