Colorful Ideas for a Rustic Wedding Theme

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:

Turquoise Barn:
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.

Tablescape:
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.

Favors:
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.

Bridesmaids:
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.

Cake:
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.

Featured Invitation: Luscious Lacing

A classic lace-inspired invitation gets a fresh update in deep purple. Rich and royal, it preps the guest for an affair to remember. The lace design extends to the back of card for a beautiful detail.

Bouquet
A jewel-tone hue like purple makes a bold statement against a white bridal gown. Mix roses and lilies to create this vibrant flower bouquet. Mix and match shades to create contrast.

Bridesmaids
An ombre palette of lavender, orchid and grape wine look elegant in floor-length bridesmaid dresses. Mismatched gowns are such a trend, and make a dramatic entrance in this spirited hue.

Cake
Clusters of roses take the cake on this tiered wedding cake. The wedding cake is simple and minimal in its design so it serves as the perfect backdrop to a beautiful cluster of purple roses and orchids.

Centerpiece
Nothing says lavish more than romantic lighting at a wedding reception. Dress up your tablescape with hurricane candle holders, mercury glass votives, and decadent purple candles.

Shoes
Radiant orchid is so luxe in satin pumps. Pretty bows add a flirty touch. These add the perfect pop of color as the bride walks down the aisle or grooves on the dance floor.

Love makes us rich and so does this royal, radiant hue of the season. Purple is the color of kings and queens and in our case, brides and grooms. Don’t be afraid to go bold and dress up your ceremony and reception with gorgeous shades in a purple palette.

Penny for our thoughts? Move over, rose gold. There’s a new hue in town.

Trend alert: Copper Accents.

Today, we’re giving this of-the-moment hue a proper shout out—a color that deserves to shine. From table decor to dresses, copper can add elegance to any wedding theme. In this inspiration board, we like how soft gray colors act as a beautiful backdrop to the on-trend copper. Copper beautifully reflects light—making it ideal for a romantic, elegant and unique wedding.

Here are some ways to incorporate the copper trend:

Mason Jars:
Spray paint clear mason jars with metallic copper to create dazzling vases for cream and blush flowers. It’s an easy DIY project that will make your tables look fancy, without breaking the bank.

“Foil” Cake:
Don’t be afraid to go glam with a copper foil wedding cake. Edible foil paint creates a stunning and sweet statement that isn’t afraid to shine.

Bridal Flats:
Step into shoes that play with your color theme. Romantic lacy flats get a modern update with a copper hue. Metallics are the new neutrals. They go with everything—even your wedding dress.

Utensils and Candle Holders:
When you think of silverware, don’t always think silver! For today’s wedding theme, copper is the metal of choice, so these copper utensils make the perfect stylish addition. Continue to warm up your table decor with vintage candle holders that enhance your candlelight dinner.

Bridesmaid Dresses:
Copper is such a flattering color for all skin tones. Try a variety of hues and textures including satin, sequins and lace. The best part? Bridesmaids are left with a classic, chic dress that they’ll want to wear again and again.

Bridal Makeup:
Your wedding makeup should be soft and elegant. Try applying a pretty, satin copper eyeshadow onto the lid for some added sheen. If you prefer an all matte look, use some burnt-orange hues within the outer V of your eyelid. These warm colors are perfect for fall, and will make sure to add a pop of color, without going overboard. This classic eyeshadow looks great on all eye colors.

Make your wedding day sensational with this chic color theme.
