Are you still looking for the perfect palette for your wedding? Take a look at my latest color crush – pistachio and royal blue. The beauty of these two hues is that they can easily fit a variety of wedding themes, from the preppiest to the most whimsical nuptials. The secret lies in the pairing of a bold color (royal blue) with a muted one (pistachio). If you’re as in love with this color combination as I am, read on for some gorgeous ways you can incorporate these hues into your big day.
Allow your wedding colors to take center stage right from the beginning by sending these Vintage Type – 3 for 1 Invitations. You can customize the invites to ensure the typography and wording perfectly match your color palette, and the set comes with a personalized wedding invitation, response card and reception card that match. These stunning invitations also feature raised lettering, giving them an air of sophistication. You’ll love how the different fonts complement one another to create a gorgeous vintage aesthetic.
Often overlooked, flowers are the perfect opportunity to prominently display your colors of choice. For the bridal bouquet, consider combining white peonies or roses with green viburnum and wrapping the stems in a royal blue ribbon. You can also bring the color pairing to your reception tables: Nestling peacock feathers among the blooms in tall clear vases provides an interesting means to put your palette on display.
If you can’t decide whether to have your wedding party wear royal blue or pistachio, why not choose both? The groomsmen will look delightfully dapper sporting bow ties with blue and green stripes, while your bridesmaids will be equally alluring in royal blue dresses with pistachio sashes. If your wedding is more casual, consider having your bridesmaids wear pistachio and white horizontally striped A-line skirts with royal blue tops. The men can still sport the bow ties – just have them wear khakis instead of suits.
When it comes to using your color combination in your wedding decor, it’s all about the small details. Try topping off your signature cocktail with royal blue- and pistachio-striped straws, or hanging a “Just Married” pennant banner behind the head table. When choosing place cards, opt for those that have royal blue lettering and a stripe of pistachio on the top or side.
