Happy Color Monday, our recurring blog series devoted to how color can evoke a mood and reveal the wedding style. For this week, we find ourselves crushing on preppy green and cool blue for a sweet September wedding. If you’re still dreaming about colors for your late summer/early fall wedding, September Crush is a lovely antidote for inquiring minds. Perfect for the modern bride with rustic sensibilities, classic blue is eye candy as the highest hue while pops of kiwi green keeps it energetic and citrus-y fresh. Helping to bring the outdoors in, are those luxe neutrals of champagne and brown. What else to love? Oh my–how about those long sleeve, cobalt blue mini-bridesmaid dresses and a playful mix of patterns on the invitation design …
What are your favorite colors for a September wedding?

It might be 85 degrees out, but we’re thinking about fall weddings! Every season offers a unique combination of colors and textures from which to draw inspiration and fall is no exception–certainly in the Midwest.
Fall in love with warm, rustic elements that effortlessly support the natural beauty of an outdoor wedding and/or reception. Wooden centerpiece containers holding low cut flowers and aromatic herbs placed on long, narrow reception tables are perfect for encouraging conversation and creating an intimate atmosphere. The blending of warm neutrals in conjunction with the pops of purple in the shoes and save the date add a little whimsy and even a regal touch. And iconic of fall, are those handmade goodies of fresh honey and jams. Who wants to go to this wedding?

Although not a national holiday until 1941, Americans have been celebrating Independence Day with family and friends, at picnics and with fireworks, since the American Revolution in 1776. What better way to honor our soldiers and commemorate July 4th, than with a rustic military wedding shoot. Opposites definitely attract, don’t they? Maybe that’s why we love the look of mess dress in a rustic setting.
5 Rustic Military Wedding Ideas:
1. Memorable Moments: Imagine your first look photos taken on an open road under a canopy of trees and filtering light.
2. Viable Venues: Think historic farms and grand old barns.
3. Beautiful Blooms: Large eclectic bouquets and bunches i.e. roses, baby’s breath, peonies, craspedia/billy balls, gerbera daisies.
4. Vintage Decor: From burlap, lace and mason jars, to chalkboard signs, fabric flowers, bunting, flags and a non-traditional red, white and blue color scheme.
5. Wedding Stationery: Browse rustic save the dates and military-themed wedding invitations.

Meet Rachel–another talented graphic designer here at MagnetStreet. Rachel is the curator of Romantic Rose, one of our newest design suites. This soft and luxe inspiration board features a large photo Save the Date Card and a lovely rectangle invitation design with a contemporary layout that’s set on a floral background. Here’s Rachel–with the inspiration behind her design.
“I wanted the feel of this design to be soft, classic and very romantic. The subtle texture that is carried throughout, gives each stationery piece its delicate appearance. I picture a distinguished wedding with many elegant roses and bits of gold mixed in. There is something so timeless about roses that will never go out of style! Once I started with pink roses, I knew gray would be the perfect color to balance the look. Gray is a very popular wedding color this season and pairing it with a pale pink is so elegant. The best part of these colors is that you can mix up gray and pink as your main color and accent for completely different results.”
What do you think of Rachel’s Romantic Rose design? And what are your thoughts on soft combos like gray and pink?
