indigo and rust

rust and indigo wedding colors

A rust and indigo color combination is divine for an autumn wedding. This inspiration board feels like something your husband-to-be wouldn’t cringe at either… it’s beautiful, rustic, and has some old school gentlemanly charm to it (thinking of those fantastic whiskey bottles when I say that!). When using rust as a main color in your wedding add some clean whites like in the bridal bouquet above and clear crystal glassware to keep it from looking muddy. One detail that I’m particularly in love with in this inspiration board is that fantastic ring from… get ready for this… Rust! No joke. This British artisan company uses old world techniques and tools to create uniquely beautiful jewelry, and I’ll go ahead and admit it: the creative way they chose to photograph their products totally won me over!
