We love the anti-austerity aspect of this trending aesthetic, favoring comfort and freedom above uptight strictness of the past.
“It’s like you’re at home, maybe the home of your ancestors, grazing off a huge table,” says Rebecca, who suggests building out this look starting with our Elegant White Palette.

Rust was heralded into the wedding-neutrals-hall-of-fame several years ago, and it's here to stay. We’re in love with the versatility of rust – it's a color that pairs well with a wide range of hues, including blush, sage green, navy blue, and ivory, to name a few.
From bridesmaid dresses to table settings, boutonnieres, cocktails and arches, we’re seeing a rainbow of oranges, terracottas, burnt siennas and more.
"With flowers, we're still seeing the very dry and airy boho-style rust vibe," Rebecca explains. "But we're also seeing a more bounteous, fruit basket type of rust vibe, with deeper tones." Rust tones are perfect for fall and winter weddings, and they can also work well in spring and summer weddings when paired with lighter, brighter colors.
Arrangements incorporate not just dried bunny tails and preserved dried eucalyptus, for instance, but dyed baby's breath and chocolate ranunculus.
"It's a color trend that's sticking around, getting bolder and more sophisticated."
Since October 2022, over 10% of people who took our quiz have picked our earthtones palette as their preferred color option. We’re proud to bring the beauty of nature to their weddings, one warm and cozy color at a time.
