Monochromatic Weddings – The Beauty in the Simplicity

You know that you want your dress, your ceremony, and your new spouse to be the highlight of your wedding. And although a combination of colors makes for a beautiful palette, there is also beauty in the simplicity of one color. Here are a few ways to make one color work for your wedding.


Your bouquets, boutonnieres, and centerpieces are an integral part of the theme, style, and color for your wedding. If you are selecting a monochromatic approach, you have two options. You can choose many different types of flowers in the same color (carnations, orchids, hydrangeas, etc), or you can go with one type to further highlight the simplicity of one color. Whichever approach you take, you can accent the flowers with glass, rhinestones, or other metallics that do not add another color, but add flair and glitz.



Although centerpieces typically tie the theme together, you can add your chosen color in other ways as well. Specialty linens, including table runners, cloth napkins, chair covers, and sashes, can all can be incorporated with the monochromatic color scheme.



Lighting, an often understated element at weddings, can help to further carry out the monochromatic color scheme. Uplighting, flood lights, and string lights can bring your chosen color to the walls and floors of the reception or ceremony venue. This effect helps to add a more dramatic splash of your color in purposeful locations.


A single color scheme can really make the beauty of other things at the wedding stand out. The simplicity of a monochromatic approach might just be what you are looking for!
