Jewel-Toned Wedding at Private Estate
It’s not hard to see why Shannon and Sean wed at this private estate in Tennessee. Situated lake-side, this property was made for a wedding. The East Tennessee home nods to traditional aesthetics, and the mansion’s black and white exterior was just right to pop against the jewel-toned wedding colors selected.
My favorite part of the wedding was the use of cranberry, emerald green, plum, and burgundy in many elements of the wedding day. Margaret Claire’s Weddings and Events added these colors to the wedding bouquet and table-top reception decorations. I especially loved the multi-colored napkins! And let’s not forget about the different colors of the wedding party’s dresses and suit!
Beautiful Wedding Color Palette
The jewel-toned color palette is a hot trend. Rich and exotic colors flourish in the wedding world and create a dramatic look. Most think that a jewel-toned wedding is only meant for fall or winter events. But I am here to tell you that this color palette works for any season. Below are just a few color ideas to fit any wedding day.
Many think that the cranberry color is meant for just fall. But this hue is the perfect balance between deep red and playful pink. Add subtle color pops of this jewel-toned color and make it go a long way. Add it to ribbon in a wedding bouquet or shawls on bridesmaids. Pair cranberry with burgundy or black for plenty of moods. Or, or work it in as a splash of color with a neutral wedding color scheme.
Jewel-toned green is a popular request for wedding colors. Why? Because it feels so luxurious. Emerald green can play a role in so many wedding color palettes. Make it the primary color and pair it with white and gold for an expensive feel. Utilize it as an accent color in a deep, jewel-toned palette with purple and burgundy. Emerald green works great at wedding receptions too. Add it throughout or minimize it through simple decoration ideas in candle holders and ribbons.
Shades of purple can be tricky when it comes to weddings. If it’s light purple, it can give an ethereal feel. Dark purple reminds many wedding couples of Halloween or a holiday party. But plum might be the exception. Pair plum with dark flowers and tons of greenery. Add splashes of this shade in the small details in a bouquet, or larger elements such as table linens.
There is no end to the ways you can incorporate burgundy into your wedding color palette or wedding decorations. Burgundy can hold its own as the main color — think big, bold splashes in floral choices and reception decorations. It can also be incorporated as a secondary color as a detailed accent. It pairs perfectly with tones such as cranberry and peach to create a warm and inviting wedding.
