wedding wednesday : color palette crush

Today I am starting a new feature within the realm of Wedding Wednesday's - color palette crush! Now I am in no way reinventing the wheel here, but I thought it would be fun to just focus on colors since they probably play one of the biggest roles in wedding planning (besides season and venue).

Poppy, Clementine & Gold:

If you haven't heard by now, 2013 is all about citrus and I'm crossing my fingers that this trend sticks around for a while (or long enough for me to see it make an appearance in a friend's wedding). When applying it to your color palette and decor, I say keep it subtle and surprising.

Invitation // The invitation is the first peek into the vision and theme for your big day and I'm a strong believer in paper goods making a statement.

Bouquet // It's easy for fruit to look and feel heavy so I appreciate the way this bouquet was arranged with smaller clementines. It also has a natural balance of greenery in various shapes and sizes while looking perfectly plucked from a garden on the coast.

Aisle Marker // Double timing as a new plant to bring home after the big day, this potted citrus tree could be used as an aisle maker in smaller versions or for your alter arrangement in larger versions!

Centerpiece // Like the bouquet, you can keep an arrangement balanced with greenery but still offer an unexpected pop of color and shapes. I recommend keeping the container simple too!

Cake // The citrus topper and playful groupings on each layer make this cake look elegantly fun and rich.

Bringing poppy into this palette is easy through bridesmaid dresses, nail polish, groomsmen ties and linens. I would reserve the touches of gold for flatware, rimmed china, and Chiavari chairs. What makes this palette so practical is that it works with rustic or elegant events- the options are endless which explains why it is my current color crush :)
