{wedding colors I love}: shades of brown

Shades of brown make for such a lovely palette! Wouldn't you agree? Dreaming of a palette that will communicate elegance without feeling too stuffy? Consider this beauty, I say! Full of character and charm, I adore seeing these colors used in a vintage or country setting. Looking for a palette that is rich and rustic? This palette just might be the perfect one for you!

Plus when it comes event styling, there is no shortage of pretty ideas to pair with this palette. I particularly love the idea of using mason jars with twine for centerpieces. There really is something to be said about not over doing things. Oh, and who is not loving this sweet, one tier wedding cake with it's handmade bunting? Charming, sweet and all the things beautiful weddings are made of, I love shades of brown for a rustic and elegant styled wedding or party!

I love this! Rustic is definitely my style! I have so many things I love, no idea how I'll plan my wedding if I ever get married :p

I remember the looks of horror my sister received 14 years ago when she announced she'd picked chocolate brown as the color for her bridesmaid dresses. Brown has come SO far since then. Absolutely perfect for Fall!


Totally perfect! Browns make for a lovely palette.

I love this look for fall.. The warm tones are such a nice contrast to the formal white gown.

Just as beautiful gems are white, decorated in the style of a real pearl necklace. Especially nice here: several chains at once.
