Palette Perfection: Chocolate and Taupe

Pin It A candy-infused wedding without cotton candy pink? We'll take it. The FG's are so ready for fall weather and fall colors we can almost taste it ... well, maybe we just want to. This week's palette du jour is all about chocolate and cappuccino shades of brown.

If you're a bride who dreams of a cozy and inviting wedding, this is your color combo. Keep scrolling for our tips on getting the look.


Five tips for pulling off this sweet color palette:
1.) Create a perfect fall table by incorporating some unexpected textures like woodgrain and burlap.
2.) For the food, go comfort to match the mood. Our favorite pastry chef, Summer Pruett of Stardust Pastry, whipped up this dessert bar.  
3.) Create comfy lounges like Austin's Townsley Designs did in our inspiration board. 
4.) And for the bridesmaids? Go with a neutral sheath to make all your girls look chic.  It's a dress that they could actually wear again, which could score big brownie points for you!
5.) One final piece of FG advice for acing the chocolate brown and taupe combo is to be a blushing bride. As in, remember to add some color to your lips and cheeks (and reapply). Nobody wants to see a washed out bride.
