How To Make A Monochromatic Fall Wedding
Fall is such a beautiful time of the year and is believed to be the most popular time for couples getting married. We all dream of the day we will marry, and after you have bought your gorgeous wedding dress, its time to think of the rest of your wedding planning. If you decide on a monochromatic theme for your wedding, first think of your colour scheme. Some bridal couple will decide on one colour only, and others have decided on tones or shades of one colour, or to go a shade lighter or darker from your primary choice of colour.
If your wedding dress is Ivory, the bridesmaids could also be a shade of the ivory palette, apart from the lush greenery of the foliage in the bouquets, everything could be a different shade of white or ivory, this is a sophisticated look and is becoming very popular. If you decide on adding one fall colour like a warm earth tone, choose a rustic orange and incorporate a couple of lighter or darker contrasting shades, you could bring the outside fall landscape into your theme. Have the groomsmen wear a lighter shade of flower in their lapels, Orange poppies, dahlias, and orange ranunculus with a sprig of eucalyptus could make beautiful bridesmaids’ bouquets and would look amazing as a centerpiece. Decorate large containers with larger flowers like hydrangeas, with hearty foliage to make it luscious.
Use your own unique style and for example If you decide on a blue wedding theme, there are lots of options available like blue hydrangeas, irises, cornflowers and geraniums to mention a few, these colours are popular in bridesmaids’ dresses, as well as midnight, navy and light blue. The fondant on the wedding cake could also be a custom colour of your choice and can have some petals from your fresh flowers placed delicately around the cake tiers.
The reception tables could have white linen cloths with silver chargers or choose a shade of your colour palette, and white chair covers accented with a colour tie, but try not to select too many different shades, I think when it comes to organising a wedding theme you should keep to just a few shades of colour, and as a neutral, tea lights always give a reception table great ambiance.
Decorate the bar with string lights and garlands, with fresh fall leaves. Have matching coloured cocktail napkins, and make a signature cocktail with a colour contrasting your theme, have a cup cake stand , or an ice cream stand with all the toppings and again incorporating from your colour shades. It is also popular to have your own cookie stand with your custom coloured icing with the initials of the bride and groom, in fact this is a great party favor for your guests to take home for a special treat wrapped is a small bag tied with a ribbon.
