Pink has been a popular wedding color for ages. Lately the pink and chocolate brown trend may be what comes to mind. Here is an elegant way to use the girly color in a way that makes a slightly different statement. Paired with a muted teal blue, a warm champagne and a rich charcoal, it delivers a polished look with a luxe antique flair. It is an ideal color combination to use with old furniture pieces, vintage china and mercury glass vases with timeless pale roses. Warm, inviting and nostalgic. Perfect for reminding your guests that they are there to celebrate an age old tradition, this style plays to the important history that wedding’s have held in our lives for generations.Click on the Polyvore collection for information on where you can purchase any of the items.
Lately, I’ve given a lot of thought as to what I can contribute to the wedding and events community through my blog, and have come up with a colorful solution! This morning, I’m very pleased to post the premier of “Sugar Palettes”. Each week, I will post a fresh new palette, specific to the time of year, the season and constantly evolving inspirations.
We are well into Fall in Seattle. Although I’m happy to pull out my sweaters and warm slippers after a really hot summer, I usually can’t wait to get through these cold seasons and back to Spring again. When we think of Fall, it is so typical to envision a plethora of pumpkin oranges and yellows, brown leaves and dark reds. This palette above is my take on a softer side of the season. Growing up near the water, one of the first things you see when Fall hits is how dark the water gets before a good storm. I chose that deep sea blue as my starting point for this palette. To keep things warm I added a pale gold. This could be bridesmaids shoes, table linens and glistening flickering candelabras. I added a cool ballet pink for contrast and a warm cloudy off-white to ground the colors with. This would make for a comforting and elegant fall wedding, out of the box, but definitely not out of style.
