Color Palettes

Mustard, White, Charcoal and Black

I envision a modern wedding working well with this palette…an event with clean lines and a laid back elegant style.

The bride and bridesmaids: The bridesmaids could wear really mustard-colored dresses while the bride wears a really simple gown. Unique bouquets with unexpected elements would make for an interesting focal point.

The groom and groomsmen:
The men could capture this idea of ‘laid back elegance’ with a cool mix of black suits, converse and cufflinks.

Stationery Options: The Gwen wedding invitation (printed in Slate ink on White paper, or even Silver ink on Black paper) would be a great option for a simple, modern wedding. The Katy save the date (in White/Curry) would also work really well with this style.

We also posted an extended version of this palette on the Southern Weddings blog…see it here.

    Thank you for sharing these ideas. They are brilliant and so inspirational. I love the idea of mustard for a fall wedding but I’m not sure the members of the wedding party will look great in the color. How would you suggest finding a shade that looks good on everyone?
