taupe wedding inspiration and ideas

Monochromatic wedding color palettes like the one in this inspiration boards are rarely seen, but that’s what makes them so unique! They are unconventional, unexpected, and definitely provide a wow factor.

The key ingredient in a monochromatic (or nearly so) wedding is mixing textures. In this inspiration board the detailing on the dress mimics the texture on the cake and hair clip. The smoothness of the lamp, satin shoes, and ring bearer pillow are contrasts to that. Color accents for a monochromatic wedding (like blush and gold) should flow into each other, however if you do want a pop accent color somewhere in your wedding, be sure to choose a sophisticated and unique conversation piece and use it sparingly!
