You don’t have to have an unlimited amount of flowers for your centerpiece. Try elevating a smaller assortment of roses and eucalyptus leaves with an oversized flute vase. Top the centerpiece off with rustic branches to complete this wow factor piece.

Give rustic a whole new meaning by painting any existing branches or twigs in your centerpiece. You can keep your floral arrangement small, while making the painted branches your focal point of the table. Very chic!

How to Pick the Best Color Schemes for Your Wedding Season

It is common for every bride to feel undecided as to what the best color scheme for her wedding should be. While finding a group of colors that go well together, there are other factors that need to be taken into account so that you can look at your wedding pictures loving the cohesion of hues rather than second guessing your final choices. It is so important to include your favorite colors, but don’t forget to consider the season and the wedding space.

Play Favorites:

Choose colors that make you both happy. Consider your favorite color and your hubby-to-be’s favorite color and try to find a common color that will make the two of you happy to see on your big day. As in the featured photo below of the Tuscan Garden at Celebrate at Snug Harbor, there is a beautiful mixture of colors from the scattered rose petals, floral arrangements, dress, and ties of the groom and his father. While the colors vary, they blend beautifully together.

Seasonal Tones:

The season in which you get married is crucial when choosing your color theme. If you’re looking for tones of blush, powder blue, or pastel yellow, you’ll want to consider a spring wedding so that it matches with spring flowers and greenery. In the featured photo, it’s clear to see how well the pink flowers and alter blend with the trees and grass of the Celebrate at Snug Harbor garden. Summer weddings call for more vibrant colors, such as champagne, purple, or orange. For a fall wedding, you’ll want to consider having one bold color and a few others to compliment the focal color, such as a burgundy with beige and cream. Lastly, if opting for a winter wedding, you’ll want deep pine green with shades of white to highlight the theme of winter.

The Space:

While it’s great to have color themes in mind, it’s best to book your venue before solidifying the color choices for your wedding. In the first feature photo, you’ll see the bride and groom have elegantly matched the woodwork of the door to their birch canopy. The ivory and royal blue tones of the walls are cohesive with the bride’s peach hair piece, blush carnations, and the groom’s navy suit. Don’t forget to look for a space with lots of natural sunlight, if you’re planning an indoor ceremony. The natural light of the Art Gallery at Celebrate at Snug Harbor brings out the peach details to match the navy tones for the wedding guests to see.

However, if you’re planning an outdoor wedding ceremony, try to let the venue’s outdoor details become your wedding color theme. In the photo of Celebrate at Snug Harbor’s Chinese Scholar Garden, there’s no need for additional colors or a separate theme with the lush greenery. Depending on your venue, your color scheme may already be chosen for you without you even realizing it!
