Hey guys!! We wanted to do a feature on the most requested color scheme for next year:
Neutrals with deep burgundy!
Last week we talked about colors in general and how we think about them, but wanted to dive a little deeper into this particular one. There are sooooo many places that you can go with this base palette and I don't think it's hard at all to make it unique to you + your wedding. A lot of the time, when we think about this palette we only think of the blushes, ivories and whites with burgundy, but that's definitely not the only way to go!
A few things to think about when deciding what would be best for you:
1. The season you're getting marries in
2. The space you're getting married in (is it outdoor at the beach or in a forrest? Is it indoor at a church or barn?)
3. Overall theme of your wedding
4. Style of design that you are most drawn to
I would say the most important thing to think about is the space that you're getting married. What is around you? What setting will the flowers be placed in?
1. If you are at the coast (say Cape Kiwanda) it would be beautiful to add in a golden and brown hue to this color scheme as well as the taupe's and blushes to pick up the sand/rock colors that will be in your photographs. Here are a few examples of this below!
2. For an outdoor, forest vibe we love adding hints of blues as well as deep greens and neutrals to give it a fun pop against the dense greenery.
3. Another fun palette that we love for springtime is adding in lighter yellows and peaches. It lightens up the overall feel so that it feels light and airy.
4. Sticking with a more simple interpretation of the color scheme is perfect for more elegant simple weddings:
5. Summertime is for bright, fun colors in our opinion! Here are some fun ideas for how to make your blush/burgundy color palette more summery:
Have fun colors like bright pink, raspberry and bright peach and red in the floral color scheme.
6. If you're wanting a more moody or industrial vibe focusing on the darker tones and including colors like mauve, taupe and blackish purple is perfect.
7. Fall in this color scheme is so cool. Lots of navy blues, golden ambers and lime-y greens to reflect the changing leaves around you.
It's important to keep in mind that none of these are hard and fast rules! If you want a more romantic vibe in the forest- 100% go for it. This is just a starting point to help you see the range of colors that can be included in this scheme so you don't feel stuck or like you're doing what everyone else is. Thinking about your season + location is a big part of that!
Thanks for hanging out with us! :)
Love, Josie + Tay
