If you are looking for a unique wedding design, consider basing your plan on a monochromatic color palette!
This calming and subtle color palette is not only aesthetically pleasing but is perfect for your wedding design or floral design palette. For a bonus to really make your design dynamic, pair the monochromatic colors with modern pops of black and white.
What is a monochromatic color palette?
A monochromatic color palette consists of various brighter and darker tints, tones, and shades of one monochromatic color. A monochromatic color consists of colors that are one singular hue and can include any of the twelve colors on the color wheel.
Monochromatic does not mean just black and white and can consist of 3-7 variations in darker or lighter shades of your original hue.
Designing an event with a monochromatic color palette
Start off by deciding your base hue for your monochromatic color palette. This hue will be the inspiration for your design and will be included in various aspects throughout.
For this event, we chose mustard yellow as our base hue. Not only was it a unique and bold color to work with it was readily available in the fall. We recommend choosing a color that pairs nicely with the season in which your event is taking place. This will help with sourcing the most suitable items for your design.
Monochromatic Colors & Your Event Design
It may be challenging to source the exact items desired for your event with a monochromatic color palette, so being innovative is essential.
For example, the yellow Baby’s Breath that was a key element in this design was actually ordered in its natural color of white. Our team then spray-painted each individual stem to the precise yellow color desired.
We also decided to use a lot of dried and preserved items, which was great as they not only added texture to the arrangements, but we could design them way in advance.
Elements that are a great area to insert this monochromatic palette include bridesmaid dresses, linens, florals, stationery, china, and event food!
This Wedding Industry Professionals Association event was a fun event to design and pushed the boundaries of standard event color palettes. We wanted to use a color that was not only bright but bold and made a statement, and we think the mustard yellow was the perfect choice for this event.
