Color Palettes

Cranberry, Taupe, White and Majollica

Color Palettes

Black, White and Camel

April 8, 2009

We’re taking a quick break from Photography Week for this week’s color palette…more photographer features to come tomorrow…

Adding Camel to black and white is a great way to add a bit of a modern twist to this always-elegant combination. This palette of neutral tones will never look outdated. It’s young, fresh and classic and would work well with just about any wedding style. In this case, we’re going for a preppy look.

The bride and bridesmaids: With this palette, there are many options for the bridesmaids: they can wear black, camel or ivory dresses. Simple white bouquets tied with black ribbon would work well against any of those dresses. The bride could wear a white or ivory gown with a bouquet in shades of white.

The groom and groomsmen: The groom could wear a Camel-colored suit with a white shirt and black tie. Perhaps the groomsmen could wear black sport coats with camel pants and white shirts, so they don’t look exactly like the groom.

Stationery Options: Our Love Logo #17 wedding invitation (printed in Black ink on White paper) is ideal for a modern, preppy wedding. The Sloan invitation (printed in Silver ink on Black paper) would also work well.

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

Color Palettes

Mustard, White, Charcoal and Black

April 1, 2009

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.

Color Palettes

Chocolate, White and Ivory

February 11, 2009

Rich chocolate brown has rivaled black as a sophisticated neutral for quite some time now. In this palette, chocolate brown is paired with white and ivory for a timeless, elegant combination. Bridesmaids would wear chocolate dresses while the men would be dressed in ivory suits accented with simple “fiddlehead” boutonneires. Either white or ivory would work well for the bride’s gown. Chocolate itself would of course make an appearance, perhaps in a decadent dessert bar during the reception.

If leaning towards more traditional stationery, our Lois wedding invitation (printed in Mocha ink) would be a great option. The Gabrielle design on Chocolate paper would work well for a more modern aesthetic.
