Pynes House offers a truly elegant setting for your special day, so it of course needs a colour palette to match. We are huge fans of a nude and neutral-inspired colour scheme and we think it works perfectly with the surroundings of our country house wedding venue in Devon. Using a sophisticated selection of hazelnut, caramel, latte and cream, we’re here to show you that beige can be anything but boring. The epitome of understated elegance, you can team with this palette with on-trend greenery for a botanical touch. The result is a natural and organic wedding theme – it’s soft, delicate and undeniably romantic.
This wedding theme is incredibly versatile and it can be anything you want it to be, whether that’s rustic, botanical, glamorous or luxurious – the choice is yours! Beige is a neutral tone so it’s effortlessly easy to work in other colours and textures and we particularly love the thought of using hints of white, cream and lots of leafy greenery and wild foliage. Alternatively, you could work in subtle hints of gold for a dash of luxury.
We will start with your wedding stationery – a key part of any wedding theme that is so often overlooked by couples. By setting the scene with your stationery, such as the save the date cards and invitations, it allows you to tie your theme in together while offering your guests a hint about what they can expect from your celebrations. We suggest using luxurious, thick paper with textured edges and embossed calligraphy. Finish off the look with a flowing silk beige ribbon – your guests are guaranteed to get excited about what’s to come!
When it comes to your aisle style, swap a traditional bridal tiara for a green leafy hair vine. It will be the perfect fusion of bohemian luxury and it’s a lovely fit for a Spring celebration. Keep your bridal make-up understated to match your theme, such as a dusting of champagne eyeshadow, glowing skin and nude matte lipstick. A gown with lots of lace detailing and even a beige bow tied around your waist will ensure that you look like a picture-perfect bride. You could also tie a flowing beige ribbon around the stems of your bouquet for an extra hint of rustic elegance. For your groom, a beige linen suit with a crisp white shirt will not only look great with this wedding theme, it’ll keep him cool in the warmer months. Swap a floral buttonhole with a sprig of greenery and you’ve got one stylish hubby-to-be!
The mix and match trend is still proving to be very popular with bridesmaids and this colour palette lends itself perfectly this look. Choose a selection of neutral bridesmaid dresses for your best girls, from soft ivory to hazelnut brown. Ask your team of ‘maids to carry foliage-based bouquets and we can promise you’ll have the best looking bridal party out there.
There are lots of dreamy ways to decorate your wedding venue with a natural and organic wedding theme. Line your tables with leafy greenery garlands over the top of a neutral table runner and work in beige candlesticks and tea-lights. Cream napkins tied with beige ribbons (to match your stationery) will help to make your wedding place settings look divine. Vases overflowing with greenery will add a pop of colour to your tables and you could even add in pillow-soft roses in a variety of muted tones.
Curtains carefully draped across an archway and lined with lots of wild foliage will make a seriously special place for you to exchange your vows – a statement ceremony backdrop is very on-trend for 2018.
Let’s take a look at your wedding cake (don’t forget to take a peek at our recent wedding food station ideas on the blog). We think a scrumptious coffee and cream wedding cake is a must-have for this theme. Decorate it with white icing, handfuls of greenery and a simple bow. This modest style will look stunning at your reception.
We must admit, we really do think this understated nude and neutral theme is an effortlessly elegant choice for your wedding colour palette.
