COLOUR CODE – BAROQUE AND ROLL

Tuesday October 23 2012.

by

This Winter’s biggest trend so well presented by Dolce and Gabbana is “extravagantly ornate, florid, and convoluted in character or style” by definition Baroque.  It would make an inspired Wedding theme if you add a bit of edge, this week’s Baroque and Roll.

This theme requires the use of the most sumptuous fabrics think velvet and silk, in dramatic colourways.  A Groom in dark red velvet will make a stark contrast against your ivory Wedding dress.   I have taken deep shades of red and black in the below to team alongside the required ornate detailing.  The Baroque and Roll Wedding theme is all about contrasts, hard metals with soft velvets, traditional with the unexpected.  Velvet like red roses will add romance and mounted on gold candelabras make a dramatic table centrepiece. Jewellery must supersized, the spiders in this Asos necklace add that unexpected twist.  Continue your theme of the ornate and gold through all details, don’t forget your cutlery and champagne flutes.  And if really want to splash the cash, add edible gold leaf to your desserts.
