Etsy Wedding: Music & Neutrals

I was in Anthropologie the other day and overheard someone say "I don't like mixing my neutrals." And I thought, why? Black, gray, cream, brown... they can all be mixed together successfully if you pick the right shades. Today's Etsy Wedding does just that and adds an interesting theme of music. Yes, music. I saw this unbelievably gorgeous DIY project on Ruffled and was inspired to add a vintage style music twist to this palette.

Here I'm mixing vintage style with classical music elements. The bridal party can wear simple gray dresses and the men can wear tweed suits with a feather boutonniere. For the bride, a beautiful feather barrette like this one from Kirsten Kuehn Designs. Intersperse a few of these delicate sheet-music roses for an interesting bouquet element. The stunning fine art violin photos would make fitting backgrounds for table numbers. I love the music tea-light holders, especially if peaking out from behind vintage instrument cases overflowing with flowers. For stationery, Raspberry Creations' music inspired save-the-dates. Print your menus on faded vintage sheet music and provide a program turned favor CD holder with a disk of all your favorite love songs.
