A neutral colour palette for your wedding..

The colour palette that you choose for your wedding will help to set the tone and create a mood. When you are looking to design an atmosphere that is sophisticated and modern, a neutral palette is ideal. A subtle mixture of neutral tones will help to create an environment that is utterly chic and elegant.

There are a variety of neutral shades that you can use in your wedding design. There are warmer tones, such as beige, café au lait, and cream, as well as cooler shades like grey, pewter, and smoke. The warmer neutrals tend to be more versatile as well as more inviting and atmospheric. Colour's like grey need the addition of a strong colour to bring depth i.e. a deep scarlet or bold navy.
 When you hear "neutral", your first reaction might be "boring", but used deliberately to create a subtle background allowing a fabulous vase to bring the wow into the table center, or if your wedding dress is full of lace a soft neutral toned bouquet will delicately add to the theme rather than create drama…

 So, as you can see, neutral certainly does not have to mean boring! Neutral tones are easy to use in any space, and they can work for almost any type of wedding, from the most formal to the very casual. A neutral colour palette is an easy way to have an elegant and subtle wedding ceremony and reception.
