Etsy Wedding: Wasabi Green, Orange Peel, Smokey Gray and Black Onyx

It's been a little dreary around the country lately, even sunny LA is getting pelted with rain! So I figured I'd brighten up everyone's day a little with this Etsy Wedding's bold color palette. I've always been intrigued by an orange and green color palette, and I balanced this one with neutral gray and a smidgen of black. The bridal party attire is simple, like the adorable charcoal flower girl dress from FaithWorks4U, but accented with bold accessories. I love the use of pheasant and guinea feathers in weddings and found some fantastic vendors offering hair pieces, boutonnieres and bouquets incorporating them (in bright orange and wasabi green no less!).

The reception concept I designed leans towards a different part of nature- using branches and leaves in the decor to add rich texture to the simple bridal attire. The vintage instrument case would make a great backdrop for a cake display, or allow guests to write one-line wishes on tiny notecards to toss into it. And, to top it all off, the brittle pictured isn't any ordinary treat- it's Bon Bon Brittle's green tea brittle! Great color and a unique concept makes for a perfect favor!
