{A Festive Fall Wedding}: Shades of Orange, Gold, Chocolate Brown & Gray

August 28, 2010

{Burnt Orange, Copper, Orange, Gold, Chocolate Brown, Gray}

A feeling of Fall is in the air & so what better time to bring out this fun palette of traditional Fall colors than now? I just love how shades of orange blend effortlessly with gold, chocolate brown and gray. Who says a palette needs to consist of two or three colors? Fall is such a fun time to get married. I personally love the festive table scape featured as well as the beautiful floral cake topper. Want your bridal party attire to stand out as unique? Check out those fun wrap style dresses! That's definitely a dress I'd wear again! And what better way to say farewell than to invite your guest to take part in a fun sparkler send off! Definitely an exciting and special way to end your wedding night!

{A Seaside Soiree}: A Palette of Cranberry, Pink + Ivory

August 24, 2010

{Cranberry Red, Pink & Champagne}

Cranberry red is a classic color used often in weddings! But it isn't often that you see cranberry used in beach weddings! So I thought why not put together a palette using cranberry as the primary color for a seaside destination wedding. I paired it with a deep pink and added in a touch of champagne for an added touch of elegance. Table decor by Object Splendor makes it easy to create this beautiful beachy ambiance. {continued...}

{Exotically Elegant}: Shades of Orange, Gold & Ivory

August 15, 2010

{Burnt Orange, Orange, Gold & Ivory}

Love the color orange, but not impressed by how you've seen orange used in weddings here lately? Well, why not pair shades of orange with a shimmery gold & classic ivory? It's elegant, it's upscale, and in my opinion this palette can be used in a lot of ways to convey different themes. It effortlessly conveys an elegant island vibe and would be perfect for an outdoor destination wedding, but I can also see it being used in a Summer wedding being held indoors at some swanky reception space. {continued...}

{A Rustic Escape}: Saying I do in the Mountains.

August 10, 2010

{Chocolate Brown, Copper, Taupe & Ivory}

I can hardly believe another Fall season is fast approaching. And although we haven't crossed over into Fall just yet, it's hard for me not to wish for cooler weather. Fall is simply my favorite season of all time. And what better way to celebrate your wedding day, than in some little rustic spot up in the mountains! That's my idea of a perfect wedding!

This palette is both earthy and natural and really comes across the page as having that perfect balance between rustic & elegance. Some of my favorite ideas in this board include the incorporation of real pine cones in both the centerpiece and place setting as well as that gorgeous reception space inside an old barn! I'm absolutely loving that chandelier.

{On the Subtle Side}: A Palette of Taupe, Gold & Ivory}

August 5, 2010

{Taupe, Ivory & Gold}

Sometimes subtle is really the only way to go. This palette of taupe, ivory and accents of gold is definitely a far cry from the majority of palettes I put together. But although this palette lacks the bold vibrant color, it really is nice it's own way. It's timeless, it's romantic and quite frankly it's pretty easy to pull together. I also happen to feel that when you go more subtle on the overall color palette it sort of automatically takes on a vintage feel. {continued...}

A Sweet Soiree: {A Palette of Coral, Chocolate Brown & Ivory}

August 1, 2010

{Coral, Chocolate Brown & Ivory}

This palette really is perfect for the Spring time. And what flowers work perfectly in the Spring time? None other than the gorgeous blooms of cherry blossoms & pink hydrangea! I'm just loving how this palette of coral, chocolate brown & ivory comes together. It's sweet, it's romantic and it's definitely very charming! I imagined bridesmaids dressed in halter style chocolate brown bridesmaids dresses with side swept updos and handmade accessories to coordinate.
