MINIMALIST + Gilded
Less is more. Let your details speak for themselves with sleek designs that include just a few frills. The simplicity of gold details with natural colors allows your guests to focus on the best part of the day: your love!
Cream, blush, champagne and gray are all wedding colors that are here to stay. Use nude-colored accents to contrast your bold hues, moody darks or pops of bright color. These shades will give your wedding a chic and clean feeling that will leave your friends and family feeling refreshed and ready to celebrate!
Whether you’re having an outdoor or indoor wedding, you can bring a little bit of mother nature into your wedding day. The big, leafy greens and over-the-top centerpieces make for the perfect woodland wonderland. For a more decadent approach, add plenty of gold embellishments, like a candelabra, candle holders and matching vases. Complete the look by scattering fruits and florals around your gilded tablescape.
Gold, silver, metallic and copper: You really can have it all! 2017 is all about mixing and matching to create an eclectic feel that looks expertly thrown together. Incorporate different types of metal in your candlestick holders, silverware or framed table numbers. And don’t forget the unexpected places, like your wedding cake!
Lately you’ve seen a lot of watercolor-themed weddings, and we’re happy to say that this trend isn’t going anywhere soon. The dip-dyed, hand-painted and DIY feel of a watercolor wedding is perfect for brides who want that sophisticated homespun style.
a hint of greenery
No matter what your color palette or wedding theme is, adding a touch of greenery will make your big day feel way more cozy. The calming Pantone color of the year can be displayed through fresh green herbs and florals overflowing on your tablescape or making a statement on your ceremony arch.
