Board #157 | Blue and Orange

A rustic setting does not necessarily mean you need to use “rustic” colors, like browns and greens. This inspiration board is an excellent example of vibrant colors playing off of a neutral, rustic backdrop. I was inspired by the image in the top left corner, that Victoria posted on sfgirlbybay, and I was reminded of Viola and Phillip’s To Kill A Mockingbird inspired wedding (two of the images here are from that event). I love the colors here, and I love the birds…

Mood: playfully rustic
Palette: robin’s egg blue, orange, browns

    I still love the wine labels as table numbers. So sharp.

  • Vanna says:

    Thank you so much for posting this – I’ve been trying to decide if these colors “work” together for my October wedding – this is perfect!

    This is basically my color combo, but we’re doing a wedding on Mission Bay in San Diego in August. I LOVE the bright colors!

    I second Vanna’s comment – this is so perfect for my wedding, and I’ve been searching for the right combo!
