Everybody Loves Chocolate

With autumn and winter weddings fast approaching, brides are turning towards richer tones such as purple, dark blue, and garnet. But surprisingly, the color brown is back again! First billed as a non-traditional choice a few years ago, it became apparent that brown was the perfect complement to wedding white, not to mention versatile and chic. Julie's bridesmaid dresses, which she blogged about before, were in Landa's Almond Satin, and I used a dark brown cardstock for my invitations and programs. Like gray, brown can be an alternative to black. It's also a great color if you're trying to incorporate more green-friendly aspects to your decor. And for all of you with a sweet tooth, it's the perfect reason to have a chocolate wedding cake!

There are many different shades in the brown color family to choose from, such as Dessy's Cappuccino or Espresso, Landa's Chocolate, and one of our top selling colors, Alfred Sung's Brownie, which is now available in both Dupioni and Peau de Soie fabrics.

Combine brown with orange, yellow, or other warm hues to evoke nature and the changing colors of autumn.

Another popular wedding color combination is brown and blue. We love the richness and elegance of of this classic pairing.
