In my last wedding post, I mentioned that we are currently thinking about getting married in August. Where or what year we’re not sure, but I’ll save that spiel for Wednesday. Ever since we (tentatively) decided on August, I’ve been daydreaming about summer weddings, and what I would want mine to look like. I’ve been thinking about color schemes, and I wanted one that was classic but not too formal, and something crisp and cool to combat the hot weather. This is what I came up with:
Middle Row (L to R): Karen Mordechai via 100 Layer Cake, Aaron Delesie via Style Me Pretty, Tec Petaja via Once Wed
Bottom Row (L to R): Missy Cochran via Style Me Pretty, Carrie Patterson via Style Me Pretty, Harry Taylor Photography via The Knot
I’ve always loved navy. My favorite page in the Pottery Barn catalog was always the one with the navy and white striped pillows (which I couldn’t find for this board! They used to have it in every single catalog!) Since we have sorta decided on August, I’ve been really obsessed with neutral weddings with navy accents. It’s almost like having a black and white wedding, but less formal, and more summery (although I’ve seen it used in weddings in all seasons). The navy is also appealing if we decide to get married at the beach, because it adds a little bit of a nautical feel without being too obvious. If not, I think it would work wonderfully wherever we decide to get married. I love how all of these weddings use unexpected materials to add to their neutral palette, such as brown kraft paper and burlap. They really add a lot of texture and a nice homemade feel.
