Color scheming - peach and gold
Let’s face facts: creating moodboards is fun! Have we given you the impression that here at dreamwedding HQ we’re big Pinterest fans? Well creating moodboards from the millions of images on Pinterest to share with you guys is definitely one of our favorite ways to spend a weekend – and we hope you like the results!
Fun time-wasting on Pinterest aside, deciding on a color scheme is one of the most important things you can do in the run-up to your wedding – it’ll help give you direction when it comes to flowers, décor, bridesmaids’ gowns, shoes, accessories, boutonnieres, grooms’ socks (!)… the list is endless!
It’s a pretty classic choice, but that needn’t mean your peach’n’gold color combo is unexciting; we love the possibilities that come with gold foil cake decorations, foil-pressed invitations and gold chairs to give that extra wow factor to your day!
Of course, for this color scheme, flowers are going to be really important – they’ll really set the tone for both ceremony and reception! Luckily, peach and blush tones are pretty easy to find all year round; we love ranunculus for a punchy, papery effect, or the old reliable roses for a very romantic finish.
But don’t stop with flowers and dresses: think about peachy tablecloths with gold table-runners; gold-toned candelabras and vases; gold cutlery; gold and peach napkins (go for a very graphic design for a distinctly Gatsby feel); or gold calligraphy on your wedding stationery.
What’s great about this color scheme (are you getting the impression that we’re big fans?!) – is that it doesn’t tie you into any kind of décor theme or era; it could just as easily fit in with a 1920s theme as it could with a 1950s vibe. One caveat? If you’re having a 1990s rave-themed ‘do, this may not work – but we really wanna be guests at your wedding!
