Color Palette Inspo – Navy Weddings

Color Palette Inspo - Navy

Navy Blue & White & Grey

Perfect For: 

Late Summer or Fall

Why We Love It:

It’s not overdone but it still screams classic …this color scheme is timeless but not trendy, making it a perfect choice.

How To Execute:

Pick your exact shade of navy blue (use color swatches) and make sure all your linens, fabrics and accents match. Use crisp white as your neutral to really make the navy pop. Grey works best for the guys’ suits against the girls’ navy dresses, which will keep your bridal party pictures from being too monotonous.   Add a subtle flash of light pink in your bridal bouquet for a pretty little twist that won’t distract from your color palette.

Fun Features:

Anemones are perfect for this color scheme, the crisp white petals and the dark navy centers couldn’t work better. Try blue colored cake, or look into other fun options like blueberry pies or blackberry sorbet.

Color Palette Inspo – Yellow & Grey

Yellow and Grey Inspo

Mostly Sunshine, With A Touch Of Grey Skies! (Way Off In The Distance, Obviously.)

Perfect For: 

Spring or Summer

Why We Love It:

Yellow is the happiest color out there, so it’s perfect for a wedding.  It’s also not overdone, so your day will stand out from the others during a busy wedding season.

How To Execute:

Dressing people in yellow can be a little tricky, so you’ll need to spend a little extra time choosing wedding attire.  They guys should be in your preferred shade of grey, with subtle yellow accents in the boutonniere, or on the tie.  The girls will look nice in a soft shade of yellow, but if you just aren’t finding one that works for your group of girls, put them in grey too.  The key to executing a yellow wedding well is by remembering that less is more with this shade.  Stick with whites and greys for your linens, fabrics, and signage, with yellow being your accent color.  It pops enough on its own!  Talk to your florist and event designer about varying pops of yellow among your otherwise white and grey wedding color scheme.

Fun Features:

Use teeny tiny yellow wildflowers to accent just about anything, from your place settings, to your up-do, to your takeaway gifts.  Pretty lemonade stands fit in perfectly with your scheme, or consider using lemons to help accent some of your decor.

Color Palette Inspo – White Wedding Wonderland

White Weddings

All White Everything… With Hints of Grey and Cream.

Perfect For: 

New Years all through the spring!

Why We Love It:

White already screams wedding, but having all white everything can give your day a regal, elegant, and sophisticated vibe.  Is it intimidating? A little.  But with the right eye and event coordination, you’re white wedding wonderland will be stunning.  There’s a reason white weddings are trending in the celeb wedding world lately, à la Kim Kardashian West.

How To Execute:

With white as your main color, you’ll want to make sure you play around with different patterns and fabrics when it comes to the decor.  Add as much depth as you can with linens, candles, embellishments and flowers to your venue.  Put the girls in white, but keep their gowns simple.  If you’re afraid they’ll look too bridal, keep them in short dresses or pick a fabric that’ll stand apart from you, like lace.  But remember that you’ll be the one in the biggest, bestest, and most beautiful white gown, so try not to let this deter you from going with a white wedding.  For the guys, grey works well; white suits can get tacky and black tuxes might be too harsh with your palette.  The cream color will come into play with your flowers, as a lot of “white” flowers actually photograph cream, but the slight off white will help add depth to your vision.  You can also use the cream as a subtle accent; napkins, ribbon on the bouquet, place settings.

Fun Features:

Anything wedding related comes in white, so you’ll have plenty of options to pick from when picking out all of your details – invitations, cakes, linens, chair covers.  Include an all white candy bar, or send your guests home with white macaroons as wedding favors.  If you get married earlier in the year while it’s still cold outside, include a white hot chocolate bar, complete with marshmallows and whipped cream!
