Monochromatics and Metallics

We're Into Them...


Many of the 2016 wedding trends are making our moods rise. From mixed tables to just picked and local flowers adorning the tops of them. From boho and open back dresses to marvelous websites, the list could go on and on. However, what makes us really melt are this years trending monochromatics and metallics! Mix them together to create moments and memories to last many more years.


We’ve got a few tips for you to become a Master of Mixing the Monos and Mets…



Make sure your color theme can be carried out through your ceremony and reception sites. In other words, don’t choose to showcase your green monochromatic theme in a venue with red carpet… that is, of course, unless your dream wedding is a Christmas themed celebration!

Don’t forget to match your food and beverage. Of course food of all one color can be boring and bland if not prepared carefully. Don’t focus on ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING matching. Feature some of your favorite items that fit your palate. Tray passing these items is a great way to ensure your master mixing skills are marveled by all.

Multiple shades of your chosen color is the best way to nail this. Light pink, magenta, rose, mauve… you get the point. All you need is one color in a variety of shades to create that beautiful wedding you’ve been dreaming of. Mixing other trends in is ok, trust us! Blush and cream are showing up a lot right now. As seen above mixing these trending colors with the monos and mets turned out gorg! Even complimenting this already super trendy decor with yet another trend doesn’t scare us… this fabulous ombre cake by Sarah’s Cake Shop is a sweet example!


Moral of the story…monos, mets, mixing, matching, magenta, mauve, modern, moments, and memories all make a magical marriage!
