7 Ways to Nail a Monochromatic Wedding
You may have seen the monochromatic trend in fashion, interior design or beauty – but what about a wedding? Don’t get us wrong, we love an all-white wedding. Nothing is more classic and traditional than voluminous white flowers, a towering white cake and a stunning white wedding gown. As we begin to move from winter to spring, color is on the brain. Whether you’re looking to add a pop of color to your wedding or go for a bright and bold theme, we’ve got the tips and tricks to make it happen without being too over the top.

1. Contrast is Key
If you choose a particularly bright color for all of your florals, keep it simple with a clean, crisp background. Stick with a neutral for most of your decor with grey, white or cream. That way, your color of choice will have a more striking effect.

2. Mix + Match
Some might think focusing on a singular color for your big day is a little one note. Layer different shades of the color you choose, and mix and match textures and shapes to create a grandiose display.

3. Earthy Setting
Having a wedding outdoors enables you to get the earthy, organic look so many couples lust after. When you have a wedding at Wayfarers, you only have to worry about one color: green! Majestic trees, stretching lawns and gardens on the property make Wayfarers the perfect ceremony space.

4. Ombré Effect
One of the most tasteful (and trendy) ways to incorporate a color you love is to utilize the effect of ombré. Elevate your floral arrangements by using pastel shades from one end that deepen into darker tones. You can also use ombré for the tiers on your cake, bridesmaids dresses or dinner candles.

5. Fresh Greenery
A pop of color looks gorgeous against lush greens. Mix eucalyptus, palms and grasses with bright hues for a seriously stunning monochromatic look.

6. Metallic Details
To add dimension to your wedding decor, mix in metallic elements for a sparkling display. Ideas we love: grey + silver, blush + rose gold, mustard + gold and peach + copper.

7. Stained Glass
We love the look of colored glass with fresh florals and textured linens. Colorful water glasses, ornate chalices and petite vases are a few ways to incorporate the idea.
