{Just Peachy} A Palette of Peach, Ivory, White & Black

April 21, 2011

{Peach, Ivory, White & Black}

Nothing says Spring like the color peach. Personally, I adore this color. Not only because it's effortlessly pretty, but because it really is the perfect color to use for a wedding. This color has all kinds of good vibes associated to it. Romance, sweetness, love - all the things we dreamt of as little girls! But what about our hubby's-to-be who say 'no way' to peach, pink or any other 'girly' color? How do we convince them that it won't be overly sweet, or overly 'girly'? Well, the answer is simple, pair it with black. And don't be afraid to use quite a bit of black. Typically, we see black in the groomsmen attire, naturally. But why not incorporate some more to create a strong visual contrast like the example below? {continued...}

Details We Love
Chair Detail + Champagne Toast

I personally love the black chairs. They stand out boldly, in a very fun and modern way. Plus, who isn't loving the little paper pinwheel with ribbons attached? I think that's a very fun way to add a touch of femininity. And don't those groomsmen look so nice with classic black tuxedos and peach colored neckties? What I like about this palette is there is a lot of texture and layering. Just look at that tablescape! A real peach at each place setting? How cute is that? Oh, and why not toast with pink champagne?
