Find your wow colours with House of Colour's Essex stylist Claire Bannister

Find your wow colours with House of Colour's Essex stylist Claire Bannister: Image 1 How do you inject your love of bright colours into your wedding day without it looking messy and over-the-top? Here are some tips from Essex-based House of Colour stylist Claire Bannister:

Be choosey.
Try not to have too many colours flying around or it can look disorganised. Having two or three complementing shades is the best way to keep things bright yet stunning.

Don't feel pressured to wear white.
White might not be the best hue for you, in fact, only people with a winter tone can really wear pure white. You may like to wear a completely different colour, but variations of white such as oyster, cream, ivory or dove grey might be a better shade for you.

Get advice from professionals.
Have your colours analysed before you go wedding dress shopping. Use your new knowledge to help you make informed decisions on your wedding dress, flowers, accessories, make-up and honeymoon clothes.

Opt for a bright bouquet.
Add impact with a beautiful bouquet of flowers. Even holding colours that suit our skin close to our face will brighten the complexion. Opt for something that's not too heavy or overpowering.

Tread carefully.
Incredible shoes in a wow colour are a great way to make a subtle but clear statement under your wedding dress.

Say no to matchy matchy.
Your wedding party doesn't need to completely match. Chose two colours that complement each other from your season palette or have a range of similar tones so there is coordination but still individuality.

Show that bling.
Everyone will want to see your ring so make sure you have perfectly manicured nails. If you're a warm season (autumn or spring) then choose a warm colour. Summer and winter palettes should choose cooler tones.
