Monday moodboard | Neon splash

Posted by Hannah.

Neon? At a wedding? Why the hell not I say. No, I’ve not lost my mind because as with everything, it’s all about how you style it. Remember those cute cacti succulents? Well that’s the kind of thing I’m talking about – little flashes of eye-popping colour among tasteful hues and accessory styling, rather than neon overkill like some kind of late 80s rave.

Bright wedding flowersTo keep it super fresh, I’d go for white and nude flowers, like Hydrangeas, Peonies and Quicksand or Menta roses. The neon could come from more florals like lime green Viburnum Opulus (Guelder rose) or Molucella, or details such as ribbon, trimmings or your choice of vessels (Plastikote spray paints and old tin cans are your friends here).

Like the green beauts up top, some blooms are so bright they almost feel neon. Coral is another option and there’s some lovely choices, most popular of which are Coral Charm or Coral Sunset peonies. Again, pairing with white or nude keeps this looking feeling fresh and it’s nice to add some brown touches through hessian and kraft paper too.

There’s lots of options for adding neon but remember that less is always more. I’d pick one neon hue and stick with it (as seen in these split moodboards) to keep it chic. Even the tiniest touch can make your tablescape pop, like place name labels or teeny stickers on paper bags for favours.
