An Olive Green and Grey Wedding Colour Scheme

Today is all about an olive green and chic grey wedding colour scheme. This heavenly duo is perfect for that in-between season time, when it’s no longer Winter but not yet Spring. Teamed with lots of country-style wooden details this is the perfect ‘botanical meets rustic’ wedding theme. olive green and grey wedding decorations and ideas

An Olive Green and Grey Wedding Colour Scheme

Kick-start your wedding planning off by deciding on your wedding stationery designs. We suggest keeping the same (or a similar) design throughout your day – from the save the dates to the table plan! This almost creates a ‘brand’ for your wedding day, and it’ll reflect your wedding style as a couple. White and grey stationery with olive green envelopes will start your wedding off wonderfully. I am a huge fan of watercolour grey wedding gowns and they’re perfect for a modern, fashion-forward bride. They’re delicate and beautiful, yet despite the colour they’re still incredibly bridal. Team with silver wedding accessories and jewellery for a truly striking look. A slate grey suit is an obvious option for this modern colour scheme, but navy shouldn’t be overlooked. Both grey and navy look handsome paired with olive green, so the choice is completely down to the groom’s individual style. Grey bridesmaid dresses are always going to look elegant on your ladies. Olive green gowns will look gorgeous on the right girl, but they may not suit everyone in your group! It’s best to try both colours on but make sure your bridesmaids feel 100% comfortable – if they don’t feel confident, it will show in the wedding photographs. I think this theme is particularly perfect for an outdoor wedding venue, and it’s best to incorporate a lot of nature elements into your decorations and the smaller details. Add sprigs of olive leaves to your place settings or even tie them around dark grey napkins. Wooden chairs and tables will add to the rustic feel of your big day, and they will add an Italian touch to your venue. Enhance this by using wooden tree slices as part of your table centrepieces and fill wooden crates with your favourite flowers. Wooden frames hanging from trees outside will create a fun space for photograph opportunities – you could use some DIY skills and create homemade photo props too. This could be a fun job for you and your bridesmaids to do! Style your reception tables with grey linen table runners and cloths. Use lots of grey linen ribbon throughout the little details too: tie around your wedding chairs or even your wedding bouquet. Olive scented candles will give your reception a lovely fragrance and how about olive scented soap for your wedding favours. Why not have an olive-flavoured wedding cake too? This unusual flavour is actually delicious, and you can guarantee your guests won’t have had it before… An olive green and grey wedding colour palette is understated, chic and modern – with a few rustic details thrown in! pin these images on pinterest olive green and grey wedding decorations and ideas olive green and grey wedding decorations and ideas olive green and grey wedding decorations and ideas olive green and grey wedding decorations and ideas olive green and grey wedding decorations and ideas olive green and grey wedding decorations and ideas olive green and grey wedding decorations and ideas olive green and grey wedding decorations and ideas olive green and grey wedding decorations and ideas olive green and grey wedding decorations and ideas olive green and grey wedding decorations and ideas olive green and grey wedding decorations and ideas olive green and grey wedding decorations and ideas   olive green and grey wedding decorations and ideas olive green and grey wedding decorations and ideas Photography Credits Image 1: SourcePhotographer / Image 2: Source Photographer / Image 3: SourcePhotographer / Image 4: Source Photographer / Image 5: SourcePhotographer / Image 6: SourcePhotographer / Image 7: SourcePhotographer / Image 8: SourcePhotographer / Image 9: SourcePhotographer / Image 10: SourcePhotographer / Image 11: SourcePhotographer / Image 12: Source - Photographer

Five Fab Ideas – Cute Confetti Bags 

I love throwing confetti at weddings and I think it’s one of the most exciting parts of the day. I also adore the ‘confetti shot’ and how it beautifully reflects the happiness of the newlyweds and guests. There are tons of fabulous ways of presenting your wedding confetti, so let’s take a look at some cute ideas for confetti bags! cute ideas for wedding confetti bags Image 1 - Source, Image 2 - Source

Throw Me Confetti Bags

Our ‘Throw Me’ cotton confetti bags (pictured above) are a popular choice for brides and grooms, and they look particularly fab displayed in a basket. Keep at the front of the church or ceremony room so that your guests can each pick up a bag on their way out. You can order the bags empty, or already filled with colourful confetti – or lavender grain!

Rustic Hessian Bags

Planning a country wedding? Or maybe you’re having a rustic affair? If so, hessian bags will fit in with your theme perfectly. Display in a wooden crate by your wedding venue entrance for an organic feel. Hessian confetti bags are best suited to natural confetti, such as lavender or dried rose petals. Why not add a little wooden sign with ‘throw some love’ written in calligraphy – this way your guests know exactly where to find it! hessian wedding confetti bags Image Source - Photographer

Something Different

Looking for something completely original? Confetti bags don’t have to be small, you could simply have 4 or 5 large hessian bags or brown paper bags brimming with confetti, dried leaves or sprigs of lavender. I love the thought of filling bags with olive tree leaves – perfect for an Italian, Summer soiree. brown paper bags filled with olive leaves wedding confetti idea Italy Image Source - Photographer

Get Personal

Personalised confetti bags are always a wonderful option. Having your names, wedding date and a lovely message written on each bag makes for an extra special celebration.

Double Up

I’ve sometimes found at weddings that it’s not clear where the confetti is and you end up missing the part where you throw it! Avoid this issue by attaching your confetti bags to the order of service, or your wedding programs. Your guests will love this idea and it’s something they probably won’t have seen before! individual confetti envelopes with order of the day Image Source - Photographer It’s easy to match your choice of confetti to your wedding theme too. For instance, if you’ve got a particular colour scheme why not match your choice of confetti colour to it? If you’ve opted for a floral wedding theme, then pretty dried petals are a must-have! Planning a wedding on a budget? Why not use cut shapes out of coloured paper or old newspapers? It may be time-consuming but it is the perfect option for a DIY savvy bride and groom. brown paper bags for confetti Image Source - Photographer Whether you’ve gone for organza or hessian, real petals or artificial petals, confetti is a beautiful part of any wedding day.

Dusky Blue Wedding Ideas – Decorations & Details

We are seeing more and more couples adding a hint of dusky blue to their wedding colour palette and we love it. The soft dusky blue tone can be mixed with other shades of blue for an all blue wedding colour scheme, or perhaps mix it with other colours. We like dusky blue and grey, dusky blue and pink, dusky blue and gold or just keep to all colours in muted tones. There are lots of different areas you could bring the dusky blue colour into your wedding, how about for the bridal party outfits, dusky blue dresses for your bridesmaids and grey suits with dusky blue ties for the men, they could wear a button hole tied with dusky blue ribbon. For your decor, introducing colours in the table linen can be really effective, dusky blue table runners or table cloths would look beautiful. Or for a more subtle tone use dusky blue napkins, or ribbons on chair backs. Bring the dusky blue tones through in your choice of wedding favours, how about blue macarons, or tiny boxes tied with blue ribbon. Dusky blue candles in gold candle sticks look perfect for a blue and gold wedding and of course using blue tones in your florals and ribbons will continue the look.

Drinks Station Wedding Checklist

Are you hoping to set up a drinks station at your wedding? Wondering what exactly you need to make it happen, we have created a checklist showing what you will need. If you are just in the early planning stages of your wedding this is the perfect opportunity to pin it now, read it later!

First things first, choose a location

  • Outside - make sure it's in the shade.
  • Inside - choose somewhere easy for your guests to access.
  • Set up a table - either take a vintage dresser to your venue or use one of their tables.
  • Dress the table with a table cloth or table runner if desired.

Something to hold the drinks

  • We love drinks dispensers, easy to fill and for guests to help themselves and re-fill their glasses.
  • Depending on the number of guests and number of drinks you are offering you may need a few of these on your table.
  • Dispensers work best when raised up so guests can fit their glass under the tap, try a couple of tree slices for a rustic look or a pastel coloured cake stand.

Glasses and straws

  • You will need to supply guests with glasses to drink from, these could be supplied by your venue or caterers or you could opt for something a little different and use mason jars or bottles for your drinks.
  • Add a paper straw for a little fun.

Fresh Fruit

  • Depending on the drinks you are offering perhaps some fresh strawberries, blueberries or raspberries would be a nice touch, guests can add these themselves.
  • Or use fruit to introduce colour or a styling element for your drinks station as crate full of peaches or lemons and limes looks lovely.

Signs

  • How about making your own signs, these could label the drinks you have on offer or create a bar menu.
