2013 Pantone color of the year, emerald green, is definitely an unexpected color for weddings, but paired with the right colors, it makes for a perfect color palette for a winter wedding! Yes emerald green is a bold color, but having bridesmaids in beautiful, long chiffon emerald green dresses matched with elegant pearl accessories will make it look classic. Having a white peonies bouquet and roses as your centerpieces will definitely tone down the brightness of the emerald green color. Candles surrounding the rose centerpieces will look absolutely stunning. Emerald green also goes perfectly with golds and silvers, so keep your eye out for a beautiful gold or silver place setting to accent the emerald green! Another fun idea is even having mint mojitos as your signature wedding drink or champagne which would also compliment the emerald green!
With fall approaching it is time to dust off our boots and bring back our sweaters. Out with the summer shades of pinks and oranges and in with the taupes! Just like our wardrobes, weddings need to adjust to the season as well. Brown is a great way to transition into fall, because it can be accented with any color. Whether you choose a dramatic chocolate brown or a more simple beige, having a brown themed wedding is a great way to match your color scheme to the season!
Baby’s breath is one of the sweetest, most feminine looking flowers and perfect for any wedding. Whether it is your primary floral arrangement choice or mixed in with other flowers, it adds a soft elegance to any wedding. Baby’s breath looks absolutely stunning and unique when made into a crown of flowers as a replacement for your veil! Another great idea that we have seen is to form the tiny flowers into a “pom” shape and have them hang from a simple string, giving the room a chic yet serene feeling.
Balloons as wedding decor? You got that right! Decorating with balloons is a huge trend emerging in the wedding world. Decorators are using balloons for table centerpieces and reception decor, and photographers are using balloons for wedding party and couple photos! When done right, balloons give a modern feel to any event. Just make sure not to over-do! Make the balloons unique and classier by alternating the string for streamers, a line of pom poms, or clear fishing lines. Also, think about decorating the balloons if you are aiming for a themed wedding.
Another great use of balloons is for the send off! How fun is it to have hundreds of balloons floating right above you as you are off to your honeymoon? Makes for a great photo-op! Check out our balloon inspiration below for different ideas on how to use balloons on your big day.
Happy Monday y’all!
Recently my mom and I had a consultation with a florist in Kansas City and it was so fun to put together our ideas for arrangements, my bouquet, boutonnieres, etc! I am anxious to receive our estimate so that we can move forward!
We are opting for arrangements full of soft romantic whites, raw cotton, succulents, magnolias and garden roses. I really hope to create some Southern warmth in our mid-winter celebration with details such as the cotton bolls, mason jars and candlelight!
Today I wanted to share with y’all some of my inspiration images for our reception. Enjoy! :
I am so excited to see how all of these elements will come together! As you may have noticed, we aren’t using too many bold colors in our arrangements. I’m thinking the pureness of whites and the natural/rustic feel is much more fitting for dear BRS and myself!
Leave some love below and let me know what you think! Add some color? Keep the neutral tones? We’ve got plenty of time to switch things up!
