Moodboard: in perfect harmony with music-inspired styling

Music plays an important part in any wedding – imagine a reception without a packed dancefloor (in fact, don’t: even the thought is giving us the fear) – but could it deserve a starring role on your special day? Even if you didn’t meet in a nightclub or at a festival, music has likely been an integral part of your relationship so far: whether attending gigs together or dancing around your living room covered in paint when you decorated your first home.

Musical influences might seem a bit vague, but executing this theme can be easy. Use a monochrome colour scheme as your base and both sheet music and piano keys can be tied in with ease. Sourcing vintage sheet music is easy and a heart-shaped craft punch is all you need to make quirky table scatter, or for the more DIY-deft, origami shapes to use as name cards. Break up the black and white with touches of an accent colour like red to lift the palette.
