Today, we are so thrilled to be sharing this pretty wedding with you all! Hosted in Milwaukee, this bride and groom got to experience the best of both worlds, from a stunning garden setting to a serene lake. Their fun blue and silver wedding colors lend to a super romantic wedding theme.
Our favorite part of their special day, was the way in which the bride chose to commemorate her dad. Tina put a picture of her father on her wedding bouquet, so that he could be with her in spirit as she walked down the aisle on her wedding day. Small gestures make a huge impact when remembering loved ones; no matter how you choose to do it, make sure it feels personal to you.
The traditional church ceremony was stunning, and let it beautiful natural sunlight. Their fun reception venue was an old, historic building from the 1800s, and has since been renovated for special occasions such as this one. From the lavish white bricks to the massive wooden beams, it is quite a shower stopper! Their classy silver and blue color theme perfectly complements their sleek silver, foil pressed wedding invitations.
Rustic doesn’t mean brown neutral tones. Soft creams and weathered wood can be a perfect backdrop to pops of color, like turquoise, fuchsia, orange or a buttercream yellow. These vibrant colors add a wake-up call to any wedding. This rustic revival is sprinkled with colors that accent tables, adorn cakes and spruce up invites. Show your guests a colorful setting that awakens their senses and adds a unique spin to a rustic wedding theme.
A wedding invitation is a perfect way to show your guests your color theme and your style. See how the invitation’s design and colors are used for the wedding day decor? Brilliantly done.
Here’s how you can add vibrant colors to accent your wedding theme:
We all love the way a red barn door acts as a dramatic backdrop to wedding photos. Take your wedding theme a step further and step out of the box. You don’t even need a barn to create this backdrop. Find old wooden boards or doors, paint them and prop them up behind your photo booth, dessert table or use as a backdrop to your wedding photos.
Bare wooden tables and neutral colors offer the right base to colorful table decor. Use napkins as your color accent. It’s the perfect way to use a bold colors like turquoise without overdoing it. Don’t forget the little details like favors decorated with pretty gift tags. Fill bottles with honey, a cocktail mixture or candy—whatever fits your personality.
Say a special “thank you” to your guests with DIY favors. Have an aunt who’s famous for her homemade jam, or how about a friend who makes salted caramel? Utilize your friends and family—most are more than happy to contribute. Then add your finishing touch with stylish gift tags or stickers with a personalized note. Tie it with twine and decorate the favor with fabric for more color.
Bright and bold colors can look beautiful next to your wedding dress and your partner’s outfit. Make a colorful statement with your bridesmaid dresses. If you want to tone down the pop of color a little, add neutral cardigans or denim jackets. They also add more of a relaxed and casual look to your rustic wedding theme.
Let’s talk about the icing on the cake—the dessert. After dinner, guests await a treat that satisfies their sweet tooth. We love how this cake looks handmade and natural with the cake showing through the frosting. This type of cake is called a naked cake and it’s really trending for rustic weddings right now. Not even the cake is left behind without color. Here, flowers provide pops of color for a colorful wedding theme.
When planning a rustic wedding, don’t be shy about including your favorite vibrant colors to your backdrops, and accenting your tables and cake with turquoise, fuchsia, orange and yellow. Show off your style and how unique the two of you are. Happy planning.
