I’m really starting to fall for the Warm Olive color which was one of the colors predicted for Fall 2009. Although this is not necessarily a Fall palette, I think Warm Olive works quite nicely here…
Bride and bridesmaids: The bride’s gown could be accented with a platinum satin sash while the bridesmaids wear platinum dresses (love the one shown above from J. Crew!). Warm olive shoes (for the bride and bridesmaids) would add a fun, modern touch.
Details and Décor: Graphic succulents combined with bright green blooms would make lovely centerpieces.
Stationery Options: For a modern wedding, our Sloan wedding invitation (printed in Slate ink on White paper) would work well with this palette. For something more traditional, the Paris invitation (in Slate ink on White paper) would also be a good option. Our Talia save the date (in Pool) would also be a fun choice.

Both lavender and rose were predicted to be fashion-forward colors in the color forecast for Spring 2009 and those colors did indeed make an appearance in Spring bridesmaid collections for popular brands like J.Crew and Jenny Yoo. This palette is soft, pretty and perfect for Spring.
The bride and bridesmaids: The bride could wear a fun pink fabric flower hair accessory to accent her simple white gown while the bridesmaids wear rose pink dresses with small white fabric flowers in their hair.
The groom and groomsmen: Grey suits would be ideal for the men. If you can get them to wear rose pink ties, go for it! If not, silver ties would look lovely and a touch of pink and lavender could be added to the lapel with the boutonniere.
Stationery Options: Our Love Logo #14 wedding invitation (in Rose ink on White paper) would look lovely with this palette.
We also posted an extended version of this palette on the Southern Weddings blog…see it here.
