Blush and burgundy has been a popular color palette for weddings for several years. The two colors are beautiful on their own but make an even better pairing. While many brides are drawn to this color palette, it is always a great idea to recreate the way the colors are mixed.
For Lesley and Chris’s wedding, we did that two ways. The first was the addition of peach to the palette. I have felt a push towards peach lately with many trendsetting designers using the warmer peach and yellow tones.
The other change was through using seasonal items. The focal flower for the bouquets was ‘Autumn Joy’ Sedum. It has a fantastic texture and is a bridge between blush and burgundy. It added a fall characteristic without being stereotypically fall.
The ceremony and reception were both held at the Old Post Office Place in downtown Evansville.
We added two centerpiece designs to the tables.
The floral centerpiece was filled with greenery as well as burgundy, blush, peach, and white floral accents in a gold brass compote container.
The second centerpiece featured pillar candles with simple greenery accents.
The sweetheart table had a vase for the bride’s bouquet but I was also able to add candles, flowers, and foliage.
Simple flowers and foliage at the entry rounded out the design.
What are your thoughts on peach? Do you like the addition to this color palette? What do you think of those fuzzy sedum flower cushions?
Congratulations Lesley and Chris and best wishes to the both of you!
