Neutrals are done taking the back seat. They’re so over being the underlying tone for pops of color. Bland? Don’t EVEN say that about them.
Because neutrals are now taking center stage at weddings – they’re the main event when it comes to unique color schemes.
How do you make a neutral wedding color theme work? Check out the ideas I’ve put together, and you’ll see how neutrals stand out in a way that’s fresh and stylish.
When you think neutral, think beyond white and ecru. Also think beyond using just one color as your theme. Neutrals are rich and varied in tone and temperature, so don’t be afraid to mix them together to create warmth and beauty. For instance, choose warm taupe, a warm grey and a deep cream for an interesting and complex blend.
Afraid your dress won’t stand out? If you choose the right neutrals for bridesmaids’ dresses and accents, it won’t! Dress your maids in darker neutrals like a light chocolate or a deep taupe. Keep your flowers simple, and the bride will definitely be the highlight.
Speaking of flowers, choose a flower type, like a rose, in a single color, like a creamy white. Use the flowers liberally. They won’t compete with your color scheme and they’ll add unexpected touches of beauty everywhere, like your hair.
Neutrals can go a little on the metallic side, so add in some sparkle! Pale gold and a soft silver will stand out in a gorgeous way against the neutrals.
And make sure you introduce your wedding with a subtly styled invitation that will make a big impact, like our Wrapped in Magic wedding invitation. The deckled edges and the textured wrap layer on the interest, making each neutral piece work together for a great impression.
