Inspired by Indigo & Our First Giveaway!

Posted By On 22 May 2014

We all know the colors of the rainbow — we learned them in kindergarten, after all, with many thanks to our dear friend ROY-G-BIV.  But now as you’re planning your wedding, it’s critical to re-think the normally taken for granted color scheme and explore the many options you have.  While some brides are drawn to the bright and eye-catching colors of the rainbow (Red, Orange, Yellow), others can’t stop drawing their wedding themes from the forgotten “I” of the rainbow—indigo.  What shade, exactly is indigo?  It’s a dark blue perfectly capable of complementing an array of: greys, purples, neutrals, pale pinks, pale greens, gold, and even your perfect white (or ivory!) dress.

This classic and embracing color is chic for every season and any possible in-between and unexpected weather scenario.  If you want to collide classical beauty with modern trends and style—have indigo chevron napkins for your guests dining.  Pair this beautifully with a menu printed in indigo ink—not quite as dark as black ink giving a hint of sparkle and unexpectedness at your table.  Indigo accents, such as vases, picture frames, table clothes, marbles, or even icing on your cake create great decorations with instant chic.

If you prefer to wear your colors—have your groom and groomsmen in indigo suits and ties and your bridesmaids in a dress with an indigo wrap.  If you want a more subtle look, try for indigo ribbons or flowers in your hair and an indigo flower on your men’s’ suits.  Create a playful look with indigo balloons or lanterns in your reception.  And don’t forget—indigo serves as a great base for a stunning ombre effect!

Whatever the style and tone of your wedding, there is no wrong way to incorporate a slight or extensive use of this trending color that will have you and your guests saying more, please!
