Not just for jewelry…a lovely combination of dusty rose, gold, butter and sage makes a beautiful wedding palette. Brides, what colors are you choosing for your big day?

What woman wouldn’t LOVE a proposal with a little Tiffany blue box with a special something sparkly (definitely not a keychain) nestled inside? I’ll wait while you swoon. Yes, I thought you might. Most of us (girls) adore that “little blue box” so it was really easy to create a wedding inspiration board based on one of our favorite blue hues, in honor of Tiffany & Co.
Colors: Tiffany Blue, Crystal White, Tuxedo Black, Silver Gray
I don’t know when it started, but I have a real fascination with vintage cars. When I saw this amazing vintage Tiffany Blue beauty my heart just melted.
A Tiffany inspired wedding needs to have some sparkle and you know you’ll always find it in the little blue box. How does Tiffany make those diamonds sparkle the way they do? Takes your breath away, right?
Now, take a look at these petit fours. They really are the perfect sweet! Have you ever tried one? They’re a personal favorite! :)
Rounding out our wedding inspiration board this week are escort cards, a vintage bird cage, and a blue candy favor bar, all in that fabulous Tiffany blue hue. Add classic black, white, and gray to your color palette, and you have created a match made in heaven!!
Add a touch of seaside charm to your wedding with tones of tiffany blue, seafoam, and summery aqua. Perfect for a beach or garden wedding. Shades of turquoise look extra beautiful when mixed with rosy pink or lavender and vintage brass details. Or go for an ombre effect, as seen in the handmade fabric chandelier by Adaura, below.
I’m sure today’s wedding inspiration board breaks some kind of unwritten rule about color matching and palettes.
But I believe there are no hard and fast rules when it comes to your big day!
Weddings are all about mixing colors, textures, patterns, styles, traditions (and people) that you and your partner love – so don’t feel bound by rules or expectations, just find the perfect combination for you.
Yellow, red and pink together are generally not a go to color combination, but put them together in the right way and they really can look amazing.
Keep it modern with cutting edge floral design and gorgeous luxe accessories (red Louboutins anyone..?) and incorporate original vintage pieces to add an authentic feel.
- Go retro on your cake. A traditional 1950s style tiered cake with bride and groom figurine topper (there are some fantastic finds on Etsy) and fancy icing can look so retro but so right!
- Vintage pieces such as original 50s prom dresses for your bridesmaids and decorative statement items for your venue decor like stacked crockery, fun vintage books and even fab furniture pieces will really make a statement.
- Your florals can provide fab feature flashes of colorr and playing with scale can look really incredible. Oversized blooms like tree peonies and giant magnolia blooms mixed with billy balls and a hint of greenery will look really stunning.
- Finish the look with super fabulous shoes and a flash of bright lipstick.
If you happen to choose this pretty palette, I want to see photos, stat.
Call me crazy, but orange has long been a favorite wedding color of mine! Think fresh and citrus-y, bright and cheery, light and airy. Pair orange with crisp white or shades of peach for a sunny and warm palette that absolutely pops!

Sea glass embodies all things summer…beach, ocean, sand. It’s playful and pretty at the same time.
When I saw this black and gold wedding shoot over on Green Wedding Shoes, I was thrown by it’s dramatic elegance. I don’t typically think of such a dark palette when it comes to wedding colors but these photos by Love is a Big Deal are simply stunning.
If you’re planning a Fall or Winter wedding and are going for a bold and dazzling event, this palette may be perfect for you! Heavy blacks with metallic gold details and accessories with ivory accents and just a tiny hint of green… it’s beautiful!

Apricot is a soft feminine color that looks charming with dark, blonde and especially dark red hair. You can use this gorgeous color as a different take on pink.
- Combine with coffee and cream and perhaps touches of soft bronze/brown
- with soft dove grey, white and black
- with pale to mid spring greens and soft yellow and white
- with soft watermelon pink and pale yellow/orange enhanced with sage green
- with soft aqua blues and white for a seaside wedding. Add a ‘string’ color in linen pants, add shells in bowls, napkin ties, edges of tablecloths, starfish, mother of pearl shells and plates, serving spoons, driftwood
- to reduce the ‘sugariness’ of this color try stripes in soft grey in table linen, piped in black, apricot napkins and blowsy apricot roses. Add a runner of apricot edged in grey or black to one or two tables such as a dessert table or head table
- roses in varying shades of apricot to orange, cream roses, lilies, lily of the valley, tulips, generous arrangements of sugar coated fruit in silver or glass serving dishes
- apricot lace overlay on a heavy satin apricot or cream dress
- capiz shell lamps, wind chimes, capiz shell dishes
- freshwater pearl jewelry in natural, apricot or grey colors, pearlized dinnerware or cutlery handles
- coppery metals, silver, gold, glass and white reception accessorising. Make a feature of the metal used by using it abundantly e.g. use lots of silver in vases, dishes, cutlery
- custard apple ice cream, mangoes, apricots, peaches, fresh summery food, a cupcake bar – lots of different flavored cupcakes iced in all the colours of your palette
- a vintage style apricot dress, floral vintage crockery, cut glass vases, apricot candles, casual bunches of field flowers
- crystal hair accessories, earrings, beading, soft fabrics, silk, heavy satin
- your cake could be tiered with a darker apricot iced bottom layer graduating to a pale version of your apricot on the top layer, decorated simply, or try a soft spring green for your bottom layer, soft yellow for the middle layer and white for the top layer decorated with vintage style flowers as in vintage crockery, or with apricot polka dots!
- vases in one of your colors e.g. green, stuffed to the brim with apricot, watermelon and pale yellow blossoms
- Rose covered arches, rose petal strewn paths, summery scents
- sugared almonds, scented candle, pearlised butter or pate knife as favors
This week’s pretty wedding color palette comes from a lovely little photo of mini succulent favors! The use of succulents in weddings has become very popular. In bouquets, centerpieces and other decor… I love it all. When I saw these mini succulent favors in this wedding featured over on Ruffled Blog, I was immediately smitten.
Not only are the mini fabric covered planters adorable, the little name tag flags make these potted beauties extra special. I love how they look displayed all together, evenly spaced on a table with a stunning floral arrangement in the background! Very well done :)
On top of all that goodness, and the reason I’m posting these photos, the colors at this event are so perfectly coordinated! I’m head over heels for this pretty palette.
