As a neutral, beige and ivory are calming colours. It carries some of the same pureness, softness, and cleanliness of white but is a slightly richer warmer colour. The colour represents quiet, pleasantness with a touch of luster.
Both and ivory provide a calming effect; use it to set a relaxed tone of understated elegance. They can be seen as an elegant and expensive colour. Many precious stones including pearls and opals are beige and ivory in colour not forgetting the now rare ivory tusks of an elephant. Ivory is the traditional Fourteenth Wedding Anniversary gift.
Classic beige and ivory flowers will add calm and a classy look to your wedding day.
Popular Beige & Ivory Wedding Flowers.
Whether your flowers will be used for bridal bouquets, centrepieces on tables, or just decorations around the room, in general they are a great way to showcase your accent colour and create that beautiful ivory wedding theme.
Subtle Beige & Ivory Weddings
A subtle ivory accent colour can be achieved with lighter shades of ivory, pale ivory blush roses or candy pastel ivorys and of course the pretty baby ivory shades. You can also keep things light by adding only a few ivory flowers to each bouquet, floral arrangements at the ceremony and ivory flowers in your table centrepieces at wedding reception. The hint of colour will carry the theme through the wedding but not be overpowering.
Bold Beige & Ivory Weddings
For a more dominant or bold statement with ivory choose the brighter cerise, shocking ivory and hot ivorys. The stronger shades of ivory work well when combined with white and bright green foliage. Striking, dramatic flowers will also add to the impact so choose the ivory Gerbera Daisy for example and trails of matching satin ribbons. Accessorising with your flowers is one of the easiest and most dramatic ways to include your complimenting colour.
