Wedding Colour Theme Ideas: Neutral and Greenery
Greenery might be Pantone’s colour of the year, but combined with neutrals and simple accents, it equals a timeless theme. Imagine soft tones of beiges, whites, ivory and coffee, splashed with fresh green and accented with gold. This is a scheme that would work in a variety of settings, from an outdoor wedding to a marque, a contemporary suite or our magnificent Ballroom. If you’re thinking of going for this colour scheme, we have a few tips:
DÉCOR Ask your florist to for lots of foliage, entwined with some soft florals in shades of cream. Baby’s Breath works really well too and if very price effective. The photo of the birdcage in our mood board above is from a photoshoot by Vintage Fare in our Ballroom and you can re-create something similar. Little glasses or tea light holders filled with florals and dotted around the table work really well too.
PERSPEX This works really well with this theme, complementing the neutrals and letting the greenery shine. We love the use of it for a wedding sign, on a backdrop of foliage.
FLORALS You can go for a combination of neutral flowers, and lots of foliage and baby’s breath, a range of bouquets would work with these colours, but we especially love a tear drop bouquet for this theme. You can find our guide to bouquets HERE.
WEDDING CAKE The pretty cake in our mood board is by Baker St Cakes. For this theme go for simplicity – think a beautifully iced, tiered cake, adorned with fresh florals, you can even dress it up with some metallic touches.
BRIDESMAID DRESSES With neutrals, the same shade may not work with each of your bridesmaids and you may want to go for a slightly mismatched theme. Let each maid pick her own shade of neutral, as long as they all pick a neutral they’ll look coordinated.
NUDE SHOES The best part about this is that you’ll wear them long after the wedding day!
