Color blocking is all the rage now in the fashion runway and it looks like it’s here to still early 2013. I’ve recently tried it on my wardrobe so I thought I might share this trend with all you brides-to-be(s) too!

First and foremost, definition:

Color blocking is a technique where blocks of various fabrics are sewn together to create clothing with a few different solid colors..

I’ve read somewhere that color blocking is not for the faint of heart. So if you think having a color blocked wedding dress is too much, you can always channel this colorful trend with your bridesmaids dresses.

The key colors this year is fuschia & tangerine, black on yellow, blue (which is now the winter color here in Australia) or neon colors.

I’m so in love with the canopy ceiling. Love the colors!  For favors, I found these adorable DIY terra cotta pots.

So, will you be color-blocking your wedding too? If yes, which color will you be mixing together?
