rust-inspired urban wedding

It’s sort of amazing how the weather can affect the outcome of an inspiration board that I’m working on. This rust-inspired urban wedding inspiration board was pulled together on a rainy day and even has some grey sky in it!

Rust-inspired urban wedding inspiration board

Rust isn’t the first color you think of when you think wedding, but it is such a pretty and unique compliment to a color palette. The rust chair with the bridal bouquet on it was the catalyst for this inspiration board and the olive-green ribbons are a beautiful color compliment to brick-red and rust.

The mint green of the succulents on the wedding cake are reflected in the place setting and the chic oversized bow wedding dress, vintage getaway car, and white tier on the wedding cake all bring it back to a glam, wedding-worthy affair!

Details to adore:

  1. LOVE that dress!

  2. I was just looking at rust colored nail polish thinking how unique it was. This is beautiful. I especially love the cake and those shoes.
