Classic colours are classic for a reason. They stand the test of time and work with almost any wedding theme and venue. And there’s nothing wrong with sticking to classic colours and muted tones. There can be a lot of pressure to try and channel the latest looks and colours when it comes to wedding planning, but there’s a lot to be said for sticking to tried and tested colours that deliver every time.
And don’t think that just because you’ve chosen to stick with a muted colour palette, your décor will be boring. Far from it. As well as using shades of beige, ivory and whites, think about adding subtle hints of lighter grey, taupe, dusky pinks and sage to accent and highlight your décor. Metallics work really well alongside neutral colours too.
Also use contrasting textures like burlap, wood and lace to make things stand out for a stunning effect.

When you think of neutral colours, what comes to mind first tends to be muted tones of beige, cream, ivory, white. These are certainly the pillars of the trend, but think about branching out with some subtle hints of greige, taupe, tan, blush pink, sage and even pops of metallics.
Going for a muted colour palette means you can add extra drama with features around your venue. Draping is a wonderful example and can be used on entrances, ceilings and walls. Mix with fairylights and greenery for a stand out look. Also think about adding flourishes to your chairs, such as oversized pompoms, streamers or again draping can look stunning.
Contrasting textures will highlight your muted tones even more. Think about using accents of wood, burlap lace and metallics on your centrepieces. Stack candles on wooden bases, use burlap as your table runner or place settings, add touches of lace to your floral arrangements and candles or even on lanterns.
Carry on the theme with your cake. Naked cakes are a very on trend look at the moment, but it also fits in perfectly with this colour theme. Discuss the theme with your cake maker and talk about adding berries or glitter accents for a touch of subtle colour.
