Real Wedding: Luxe Jewel Tones at the Fairmont Copley Plaza

This gorgeous wedding at the Fairmont Copley Plaza in Boston featured a rich & colorful palette with deep blues, vivid greens, and bright red tones. A mix of ivy and olive greens gave the bridal bouquet a loose and organic feel, with brightly succulent ranunculus, creamy dahlias, thistle, & roses. High centerpieces dripping with hanging amaranthus were a vibrant pop against the warm gold decor in the Fairmont reception space. Overall the day was filled with color & love!

Four Wedding Palettes for 2018

This year's palette inspirations are soft and subdued. A lot of natural tones are finding popularity over bright pops of color. Metallic decor is still highly desired and soft pinks, blues, and mauves are the perfect compliment to these lustrous silver and gold details. Lush greens like eucalyptus and dusty miller with their subtle almost smoky green color are a great choice to pair with the overall palettes. Below we've chosen 4 of our favorites for the 2018 season. Enjoy!

1. Dusty Rose


Elegant and understated, Dusty Rose is subtler than a true pink. Dusty rose transitions well and can suit sophisticated palettes or more laid back decor. This color pairs beautifully with creams, greens, and even navy. For our inspiration palette, we chose the soft pairing of Dusty Rose, Cream, & Sage.

2. Black & White

Black and white may be the boldest color pairing on our 2018 palette list (and that's saying something!). This classic never goes out of style and can be very sophisticated especially paired with metallic gold. For a black and white look, we recommend sleek details like an all-blossom bouquet for a striking touch.

3. Powder Blue

Powder Blue can be both sweet and elegant. This shade of blue is lovely with creams and whites as well as blush and chartreuse. Paired altogether powder, blush, and cream can be an especially beautiful mix. The subtlety of color is perfect for Spring and Summer weddings.

4. Greenery

Green heavy weddings are huge for 2018 and we love this look. A palette of all greens is fresh and can be utterly elegant. Pair with cream blossoms to compliment the greens themselves. We love mixing various kinds of greens for a richly textural look.

The Blushing Bride

Incorporating a Blush Palette into your Summer Wedding

Blush can be sweet and elegant, it can carry itself well in many themes from a rustic wedding to a classical bash. It is a very versatile color. Therefore blush is a great option to mix into your palette as a subtle, somewhat neutral foundation to your overall theme.

With Marsala as 2015’s Pantone color of the year, blush is a great compliment to its rich hue. Blush can also pair well on the other side of the color spectrum, warming up cool blues and greens too.

Blush mixed with peacock green and champagne gold make a really stunning combination as seen below. Blush blossoms include stock, garden roses, and astilbe.

This palette with powder blue and pink creates a summery-fresh look. The additional pink tones warm up the blush and illuminate the contrast with the cooler tones. Blush blossoms include peonies, sweet pea, and ranunculus.

This rich palette with wines, plums, and pinks gives a sultry look to the blush. The tonality transforms it from sweet to sophisticated. Blush blossoms include roses and stock.


Whatever your look or palette, finding colors that suit your vision and design will help to make your wedding or event a visual success!
