While I’ve never considered brown a decent color for a wedding, I was wrong – brown can be exceptionally beautiful when done right! The following photographs might inspire you to rethink brown as a color scheme, too.
Who says a traditional white cake is the only way to go? Entice your guests taste buds with a scrumptious chocolate wedding cake like this one, decorated with white sugar flowers, pleats and coordinating chocolate ribbons for an elegant look that still tastes delicious. Brown definitely isn’t boring now!
Even something as simple as napkins can be made to look elegant! Roll up a few chocolate brown cloth napkins; tie with raffia ribbon, and add a customized name tag with the bride and grooms names and date of the ceremony for a touch of class to tableware. It’s simple, economical and really ties the whole look together!
Now HERE’S an interesting departure from the traditional bridal bouquet! Instead of carrying an armful of blooms, consider keeping in time with your brown color scheme by bundling up a cluster of wheat and finishing it off with a deep chocolate ribbon.
For a cheap way to let guests know where they’ll be sitting, buy some deep brown cardstock and cut out each name tag. Use a white pen to letter guests names on each place card so it will be easily readable. You can leave it at that, or embellish the cards any way you see fit.
Brown weddings may seem few and far between, but this often-overlooked color can really transform a wedding into something even more special. Would you ever consider a brown wedding?
