Google+ Gia Graham Color Palette: Burnt Sienna, Honey Yellow and Crème Brulée - Southern Weddings

Southern Weddings

Last week guest blogger Gia of {betsywhite Stationery} shared with us her color predictions for the Fall wedding season. This week she starts us off by combining some of her Fall color predictions in this fantastic color palette that uses the traditional Fall colors with an updated twist, making it fresh and modern. Make sure to check out Gia’s color palette posts each week for some more wedding inspiration: I, II, III, IV, V, VI, VII and VIII.

From Gia: Our first palette for Fall provides a pretty smooth transition from the Spring colors. This palette is still light but the tones are shifted slightly to incorporate the earthy warmth of Fall.

The bride and bridesmaids: It’s not often done but I think it would be quite beautiful if the bride and bridesmaids all wore ivory dresses. The bride’s bouquet could incorporate all the shades of the palette (burnt orange, warm yellow and ivory shades), while the bridesmaids have more monochromatic look, with small posies of ivory blooms.
The groom and groomsmen: The men could wear suits in a deep, rich chocolate brown. To coordinate with the ladies, they could all wear ivory ties and a small ivory flower for the boutonnieres – the groom could be set apart with a boutonniere in a different color.
Accents and Details: Candles in gold Moroccan-style tea glasses would give a dinner reception a beautiful honey yellow glow. A simple cake with just a few ribbon details in honey yellow would be quite stunning and incorporating seasonal details like pumpkins would work really well with this palette.
