So all around the world people are celebrating St Patrick’s Day. Add a bit of the Irish charm and luck to your wedding with some gorgeous shades of green. But rather than opting for an emerald hue, try a brighter green like lime mixed with pink or white – perfect for a Springtime wedding.

Perhaps you were lucky enough to receive your engagement ring in a coveted little Tiffany’s blue box, but even if you didn’t why not include this gorgeous hue in your colour scheme. Did you know that the Tiffany Blue colour is actually protected as a colour trademark by Tiffany & Co and its Pantone code 1837 derives from the year of Tiffany’s foundation. This does not stop you incorporating this robin egg blue into your wedding. Play it up with other shades of blue like this pretty table setting from Martha Stewart Weddings or simply complement it with ivory for a chic look.

The fairytale wedding of Blair and her prince finally took place (in the UK!) after months of build-up and of course the only wedding designer that was fit to design the dresses was Vera Wang. With a colour scheme of pink and black, Serena wore a stunning floor length Vera Wang Spring 2011 blush pink gown while the other three bridesmaids wore dresses from the more attainable collection ‘White by Vera Wang’ at David’s Bridal. The stylish dress features beautiful organza roses and is available in other colourways including the pale pink as seen on Gossip Girl. Do you like this look?

Red is often seen as a really dramatic colour for a wedding especially as it is often mixed with black or white but why not lighten it up and go for poppy red complemented with blush pink and aqua. I love this colour mix and the perfect excuse to carry a beautiful bouquet of poppies!
