Planning a Brown and Tan Wedding – Brown and Tan Details

Brown and Tan Wedding Attire

As always, the bride and groom can work any color into their attire with sashes and piping for the bride and vests and pocket squares for the groom.  Neutral tan bridesmaid dresses look good on almost anyone in the right cuts and flowers and accessories can be used to add a pop of color that completes your brown wedding color scheme.  Try placing the groomsmen in tan linen suits for your summer wedding or darker chocolate suits for your winter wedding instead of tuxes.  Match the color of the bridesmaids’ dresses to the groomsmen’s suits and use a contrasting color for flowers and accessories for a seamless and beautiful look that will have you keeping your wedding album on the coffee table.

Wedding Invitations and Paper for Your Brown and Tan Wedding

Most of our wedding invitations can be customized to include brown or tan.  Some of the most popular invitations to use in a brown wedding color scheme include the Amber Folio Pocket Wedding Invitation and the Hannah Wedding Invitation.  Folio wedding invitations like the 5 x 7 V-Flap Folio Pocket Invitation allow you to include as many colors as you’d like with a brown folio to really showcase your brown wedding color scheme and the colors you have chosen to complement the brown.  Plus they are a great way for your guests to keep all of your wedding information organized which is especially useful for out of town guests.

Flowers to Consider for Your Brown and Tan Color Scheme

A unique option for working brown into your bouquet is using cotton (the plant of course not cotton balls) for a memorable bouquet.  The brown branches make a pretty contrast to the fluffy white contrast.  You can use brown ribbon, feathers and branches in any centerpiece or bouquet to pull brown into your floral arrangements. A bouquet of wheat tied in a rich brown ribbon would make a nice touch.  Mix just a few blooms into the bride’s bouquet to make it stand out or just use a brooch pinned to the ribbon to add a little sparkle to this simple and symbolic bouquet. Dried bunny tails, wheat, and chocolate cosmos are other choices you have if you want actual brown floral elements rather than just ribbons, lace, vases and other brown accompaniments. Brown and tan can be used with nearly any color so they can create a variety of moods and looks.  Get creative and create a timeless color palette and photographs to remember.
