Cream and Greige Color Palette

Autumn weddings don't have to be full of the typical fall colors of warm reds and oranges — in fact, choosing softer, more subtle hues for the months of September, October, and November can make your wedding style stand out even more. Our current color-combo obsession? Cream and greige. This color pairing is understated and inviting, and will set your nuptials apart from the bolder palettes of the season.

Inspiration for your wedding color palette doesn't just have to come from real weddings — although, that's certainly a great place to start! We were inspired by this stunning Farrow & Ball wallpaper, which perfectly combines the two hues with a more whimsical leaf and flower pattern. Adding a hint of whimsy with these hues, whether it be in your wedding stationery, centerpieces, or your cake, can add warmth to the look.

You can start incorporating this color palette into your wedding style with easy color-forward touches, like your bouquet! This BRRCH-created arrangement perfectly showcases the natural beauty of cream and greige with simple flattering greenery to offset the flowers.

To pair with these pretty arrangements, consider dressing your bridesmaids in a sparkling, light-gold, flowing dress like this Jenny Yoo gown. And, speaking of gold glamour, turn to a sparkling shoe when accessorizing your own wedding dress, like with these Alexandre Birman stilettos. Plus, the shoes will look ultra chic up against your perfectly painted toes — for a greige tone, we suggest Dior Vernis in Lili.

Finally, send guests home with a special wedding favor packaged neatly in these cream and gold boxes by Kate Aspen.
