Charming Yellow Wedding for Spring

Mar 23 2015

For a Warm & Charming Yellow Wedding

Even though there’s snow on the ground, there’s spring in the air! That said, we’re siding with the calendar and celebrating Pantone’s Custard yellow for today’s Color Monday. Our charming yellow wedding inspiration is a delicate fusion of warm and cool tones–perfect for an outdoor spring event. By pairing 3 other colors with Custard, there isn’t as much pressure on this warm yellow to carry the mood and spread the sunshine. Custard makes a charming accent color–looking ever so sweet on wedding signage, in the groom’s attire, on the wedding, cake and in today’s featured stationery–a Program designed with a patchwork of patterns and a vintage banner.

Country wedding anyone? … are you a fan of this mellow yellow for a spring outdoor wedding?
