Brown seems to be a popular color theme during the autumn season, echoing the transition of the surroundings’ hues from bright tones to something burnt or dark. Weddings done during this time incorporate this color to their motif and mix it with another for a bit of contrast. One example of this combination is brown and turquoise.
These colors make a good wedding motif: the richness of brown brings about a sense of solemnity and formality, while the soothing shade of turquoise evokes a gentle, breezy feeling. When used together, they exude a kind of down-to-earth and laid-back vibe; elegant yet cheery, perfect for intimate or outdoor weddings.
A brown and turquoise color motif need not be used just for autumn weddings. You can use this color combination for beach weddings, too. In fact, you can use it any time of the year. You can also add hints of white or ivory as accents. Here are some inspirations on how to incorporate brown and turquoise to your wedding details:
Country wedding-style – It’s easy to integrate the wedding motif with a country theme, especially if the venue is a in a barn or vineyard where wooden elements are present everywhere. Brown tables need not be covered in tablecloths; a turquoise-colored runner is just what these need. Complete the tablescape with champagne roses and votives. Tie turquoise ribbons on the back of brown-colored chairs. Meanwhile, brides can wear brown boots and embellish them with turquoise rhinestone appliqués that say “I Do”.
Urban elegance – Pair brown tablecloths with turquoise table napkins placed on fine white china. Put a tall vase with white roses or calla lilies as centerpiece. For stationery, go for letterpress invitations with brown and blue calligraphy fonts. Brides can wear chocolate brown peep-toe pumps for the ceremony. Her maids can don brown knee-length dresses accentuated with a turquoise sash.
Beach bum – Combine blue hydrangeas and delphiniums, chocolate cosmos, and white mums for the bouquet. Or use silk flowers in turquoise and white then tie them together with a brown ribbon. Flower girls can wear a floral headdress made of blue irises and baby’s breath. Brides can walk down the sandy beach for the ceremony wearing barefoot sandals in turquoise, embellished with brown beads.
Something blue (and brown) – The wedding garter worn by the bride is usually blue in color. You can have this made in turquoise, then add a little brown bow to it.
Grooming the groom – Of course, the man of the hour shouldn’t be left out. Let him wear a brown suit. Or make him wear white then cap off the look with a tie that matches your brown-and-turquoise wedding color motif.
