We’re mad for magenta!!!
Inspired by Viva Magenta 18-1750, the Pantone Color of the Year 2023, this vibrant shoot by Candace Holmstadt at 651 Studio Floral leaned into every loud and lovely detail. Just look at that explosive ceremony backdrop she created out of bright red and pink roses and magenta-fied greenery!
To Holmstadt the color Viva Magenta represents creativity, courage, and boldness. “This color means to be brave and fearless,” Holmstadt says. “It encourages celebrations that are joyous and optimistic!”
Let’s get our joy on and dig into this vivid design vision!!
The Vibrant Details
Vintage stamps add so much character to your invitations but can be hard to track down. Curated vintage stamp suites are one way to get your hands on them!
These floral pumps are the ideal Viva Magenta statement shoe!
Treat your bridal party to some Old Hollywood glamour with these feather-sleeved robes!
We love the way glitter adds shimmer and fun to a sophisticated hair and makeup look like this one by Michelle Dunlap.
651 Studio Floral really outdid themselves with this rich magenta bridal bouquet. The diversity of the blooms has the arrangement bursting with texture.
A Crazy-Colorful Ceremony
Legacy Bridal was the source for bridal accessories like this totally glamorous scarf!
A gorgeous addition to this open-backed silhouette!
Our bride is rocking a fabulous sparkly veil by JH Bridal by Jimme Huang and our groom is bringing the blue-green to balance the bright magenta moment.
Into the idea of a teal suit? Check out this one from ASOS!
A Bright and Bold Reception
This electric magenta design vision just begs for a festive custom pink neon sign and colorful seating chart. And the rich-hued floral installation at the bottom absolutely makes the look.
Tabletop and furniture rentals from Rustic Charm Rental created a reception situation that is pure dopamine. LOVE the idea of a low table with plush stools as guest seating!! So chill-yet-festive. Check out these similar pink-and-gold ones from Anthropologie.
Those teal semi-circle place cards are simple-yet-striking. The pink linens from Linen Effects and ribbon detail add the perfect POP!
Those neon table numbers!!
Fizzy + floral!
How fun and edgy is this black geometric asymmetrical wedding cake by Amour Patisserie with bold Viva Magenta cake flowers?!
This short reception look with a big ol’ bow from Untamed Petals is a flawless finishing touch!!
Can’t wait to see the way Viva Magenta works its way into more 2023 weddings! Here’s to all things bright and bold!!
