When we first began talking wedding, invitations and colour were top of my priority list. Any time someone would ask me what colours I'm going to use my answer was: grey, grey and a little white. If there's one thing I'm sure of, it's that I love grey. Always have, always will. It only makes sense that this would be my wedding colour go-to. But as things go, it wasn't that simple; we needed an accent colour. Now I know it's my wedding and I can do it how I want, but I want an accent colour. I really do. I'm just scared to choose one.
The funny thing is, the more decisions we make concerning aesthetic and design, the more my beloved grey is left behind. There is just no room to fit it in... and honestly, I'm pretty happy with how things are evolving and don't feel the need to force it in. So now I find myself with "cardboard", "unbleached cotton", and "burlap" as my main colour scheme in need of an accent, and the question still remains: what will that be?
- Not only do I love this burlap bunting, I love all the shades of cream and brown here. Definite inspiration for the wedding.
- Colours that I am playing with. Unbleached cotton/white, soft yellow, light burlap, soft tangerine, dark burlap. What are your thoughts? Should I accent my rustic burlap and unbleached cotton colour choices with a soft yellow, or a soft tangerine or both?? I'm not having bridesmaids so potential ways pops of color will be present are: bunting, ribbon/cloth ties on the centrepieces, cake icing…
- Inspiration. This table setting is very in line with how I would like my tables laid out. I’m not sure what my centerpieces will be however, colour accents would be used sparingly within the center-pieces.
- Inspiration. I don’t know if I can get my hands on these absolutely perfect brown chairs [while staying within my budget]. I do know that I absolutely love how the colours are used here.
- Inspiration. This photo is basically what convinced me to move towards the more shabby chic, rustic style of décor. I don’t know if I can accomplish this table in all its glory but I love it all the same and will try to emulate something similar.
