Modern Wedding Color Combinations

It used to be that white was one of the only colors you saw at a wedding. Maybe one other accent color like black or silver might appear, but that was it. Cakes were white and flowers were white. No one dared splash color in. Every ribbon, bow, and favor item had to be white or you would be looked upon as a rebel. And no one wanted to break out of the expected traditions. All that has changed though and brides are glad. Today, brides and grooms have no rules when it comes to color. There are bright orange wedding dresses and dark green cakes. Brides have come down the aisle wearing red shoes and tables have been draped in bright purple and pink. Bridesmaids now don’t even wear the same dress style, but just the same color palate. So anything


Winter Wedding Inspiration

There are so many winter colors out there that look stunning when put together. Of course, there are the natural picks (white, light blue, midnight blue, burgundy, pine green) and other picks that are earth tones (brown, light green, blue) and more. So when it comes to planning your wedding colors, consider where you are having your wedding ceremony and reception. Will you be somewhere with lots of snow? Then maybe opt for the lighter colors such as light blue and white. If your winter wedding is going to be in a ritzy location such as a glam hotel or chalet, then maybe burgundy, green, or midnight blue would be practical. Don't forget the overlooked essentials for winter weddings such as gold, platinum, and silver. These colors look great


Polka Dot Red & Teal Blue Inspiration Board

How about a little Independence Day inspiration? I ran across this amazing polka dot red and teal blue inspiration board at and fell in love with it. Of course, I thought the color scheme would be the perfect thing to share with our readers on the Fourth of July....seems appropriate, don't you think? Heather from All The Rave Events chose the items for this board perfectly in my humble opinion.  The polka-dot covered wedding dress, red satin shoes, and the teal blue bridesmaid dresses with the red sash are sure to make a bold statement at the ceremony.  And the red and white polka dot covered wedding invitations are a lovely way to introduce your theme and style to wedding guests.  I always love when brides use the invites to


Black, White & Red Wedding Cakes

Add a Splash of Romance to your black and white wedding... Use red accents on your wedding accessories and of course, on your wedding cake! A classic black and white color scheme can sometimes be a bit stark and boring if it isn't done correctly, but you can avoid the "boring" label by using an accent color like red. You can see in the montage of photos below that when it comes to the cake you can go in a wide range of directions. Want a bit of whimsy? Consider a topsy-turvy style wedding cake where the layers appear misaligned and seem to tilt as though they might fall over at any minute.  For good cake bakers, the threat of a great topple is truly an illusion.  Another way to bring in a whimsical touch is through the use of interesting


Valentine Wedding Inspiration Board

If you've selected Valentine's Day for your nuptials, then you are likely a true romantic at heart. Injecting that romance into the ceremony and reception can be accomplished in many ways. For example, choose a romantic location for your wedding such as a local bed and breakfast, castle or even a winery. When it comes to a color scheme, red is synonymous with Valentine's Day and using it in all aspects of the wedding is a great way to infuse a bit of romance. As you can see in my inspiration board below, I like wedding dresses with red accents or red bridesmaid dresses at a minimum. A classic black tux with a modern red tie pairs perfectly with the color scheme. Red roses are the obvious choice for Valentine's Day flowers, but there are plenty


Christmas Wedding Inspiration Board

If you are getting married in the month of December, then chances are that you are considering a Christmas theme with a red and white color scheme.   Planning a Christmas inspired wedding can be great you can save tons of money since it is considered "off-season" by most wedding retailers and venues.  Personally when I envision a December wedding, I think red and white with hints of green like pine branches covered in pine cones.  And I love the idea of the bride arriving in a horse drawn sleigh (or a horse drawn carriage if you get married where there isn't much snow).  If you get married in a church, chances are that they will have the place decorated for Christmas with a tree and nativity scene.  For reception decoration,
