Last week we mentioned that if you want to make your event decor pop and standout in the most amazing way, pairing opposite colors as your color scheme is best. Last week we paired white and green for you. Now we pair up navy and yellow for a perfect combination of elegance, sophistication, and chic-ness. In this particular example, we have utilized these two great colors to set the stage for a Chic Nautical theme which is perfect for July/August Weddings! A great perk about working with yellow, especially during the summer time, is that there are an abundant number of flowers that are yellow. This way, you have a lot to work with. This theme and these colors are the best of both worlds because it prides itself in simplicity, and sophistication. So, you don’t really have to go out of your way to make your decor look outstanding. The chemistry this theme and colors have basically do all the work for you.
Less is more….we have all heard this saying before. When applying this motto to wedding decor we automatically gear towards a white and green color scheme. No other color combination can embody class, crisp elegance, and sophisticated simplicity like these colors can. Also, many studies have showed that green is a color that relaxes the human eye immediately. So, having these colors won’t only make your event look stunning, but will also serve as therapeutic for any stress you or your guests may have.
Bold colors are thought to be too risky for brides. But, the truth is that if paired correctly…two bold colors can make a huge RIGHT as long as they have chemistry together. Interestingly enough, usually when pairing bold colors together, the best combinations are of totally opposing colors. Here is one of our favorite examples…turquoise and orange. They couldn’t be more opposite from one another, yet they look absolutely amazing together. So, go on and take a chance with your event’s colors. It could very well be the best risk you have ever taken in your life
Are you a girly girl, but with an edge? Pink and black are probably the perfect blend of colors for your event’s color scheme! If you want more of edge you can blend a fuchsia pink with black, or if you want to bring out more of the classy appeal, do light pink with black. Of course, your accent color would be white to neutralize it all. These two colors are the best mixture of chic, classiness, sexiness, and girlyness.
One of the most under rated colors for weddings is peach. It has got to be one of the most romantic colors to have at a wedding! It’s soft, not too girly, and very classic. It encompasses a beauty factor that cannot be explained verbally….only visually. Some great accent colors to accompany your peach color are mint, ivory, white, or tan. A peach wedding will be such a romantic hit on your day, that all couples invited will want to run out and renew their vows.
Peacocks are one of the most beautiful, mysterious, and royal birds in the world. Their perfect blend of colors on their feathers are simply jaw dropping gorgeous! They can lead to one of the most amazing inspirations for your event. The best part about having a Peacock inspired event, is that it can be adapted for any time of year. For example, if you are having a fall wedding, gear more towards the olive green, and gold tones of the feathers for the bulk of your color scheme. But, if you are having a summer wedding, you can make it cool and with a hint of tropical by gearing more towards the blues and violets of the feathers for the backdrop color scheme. This is a very chic and elegant theme, and combinations of color schemes you can have are endless.
Some people laugh when they hear of pink for a wedding color…but the truth is that pink is the new black. It is romantic and chic as ever. Of course, it can look very cookie cutter….it’s all about how you incorporate the color into your event. One key element in keeping your pink wedding looking chic, is SIMPLICITY. For example, for a centerpiece stick with one kind of pink flower as opposed to a variety. If you mix in too much with a pink centerpiece, it can look like that old silk flower arrangement grandma has in her living room. Also sizing matters. When using pink decor keep arrangements and accessories small as opposed to tall and bold. This will increase the “chic-ness” of your event. GO PINK!
