Consider printing your wedding invitations on colored paper to set the tone of your wedding style. For a more subtle approach, use colored ink on neutral paper, a bright ribbon or add a custom wax seal.

Floral arrangements add natural hues of color to your wedding, complementing your overall wedding color scheme and other decor. From bouquets to boutonnieres to centerpieces, the florals you choose demonstrate your wedding style, whether you opt for modern monochromatic flowers or multiple hues for a bright look.

Bold Accessories

Accentuate your wedding color(s) in what you and your wedding party wear. Pick a bold pair of heels for a fun punch of color contrasting a white wedding dress, or wear vibrant earrings for a delicate touch of color. For the groom and groomsmen, incorporate color in the tie, bow tie, dress shirt or socks.

Venue Spaces

If you are working with a color palette, use the colors to guide your wedding decisions, such as venue locations. Looking to add pops of blue and green or incorporate earthy tones? Opt for an outdoor wedding by the ocean, such as Wayfarers Chapel! Tie in colors that work best with the scenery and create your ideal wedding look.

Table Linens

Create a backdrop of color with your reception table linens. The place settings, centerpieces and other decor will pop and add vibrancy to your overall wedding look. Add interest by playing with linens with metallic sheen or fun texture.
