Four ways to build a theme, should you want one

RO­MAN­TIC

For a time­less theme, you can’t go past the ro­mance of gold, pale pink and cream. Soft pink florals with ac­cents of cream and green help set the mood, com­ple­mented by del­i­cate table­ware and florals. Try cook­ies iced in pink as favours and rose gold ac­ces­sories for the bride. MEL­LOW LIPPY MATCH Long-Wear­ing Matte Lip­stick in Nude, $19, gives nat­u­ral warmth and a sub­tle rosy tone.

GATSBY

For a glam­orous gath­er­ing in the depths of win­ter, chan­nel the 1920s with deep vel­vety reds ac­cented by gold ac­ces­sories and glass­ware. Peaches- and­cream flow­ers and plenty of can­dles help set the Art Deco-in­spired mood. MEL­LOW LIPPY MATCH Try Long-Wear­ing Matte Lip­stick in New York, $19, for its deep and sexy vi­brance and vel­vety smooth fin­ish.

GAR­DEN PARTY

A soft pal­ette of green and cream, ram­bling blooms and ro­man­tic yet rus­tic dé­cor are the hall­marks of this pop­u­lar theme. DIY- style sig­nage, a smat­ter­ing of wicker or wood items and na­turein­spired ac­ces­sories will help your big day look el­e­gant yet ef­fort­less. MEL­LOW LIPPY MATCH Long-Wear­ing Matte Lip­stick in Posh, $19, has a mois­tur­is­ing fin­ish that com­pletes any style. Avail­able at Farm­ers and mel­low­cos­met­ics.com.

FI­ESTA

Cre­ate a pool­side vibe with

fresh, punchy colours and touches of trop­i­cana. Shades of green, frosty pinks and splashes of yel­low or or­ange are your go-to pal­ette, while chunky glass­ware, colour­ful cock­tails and plenty of green­ery give a stylish up­date to the tiki bar. MEL­LOW LIPPY MATCH Try Long-Wear­ing Matte Lip­stick in Blos­som, $19, for a fun pop of highly pig­mented colour – you’ll stand out from the crowd for all the right rea­sons.
