Color & Décor

Festive Christmas Wedding

Although, you may feel tempted to drape everything in bright greens and rich reds, when it comes to traditional Christmas colors– think less-is-more!  For added elegance, choose white as the base for your palate with added reds and greens as subtle pops of color throughout your furnishing and décor.

Festive New Year’s Wedding

Champagne, confetti, gold, and silver- these ingredients along with a newly formed union and newly formed resolutions make New Year’s the perfect time to say, “I do!”!  Pops of glitter and glam should be the statement of your color palate and décor, here are some of our favorite inspirations from Brit + Co & BRIDES.
