Dark, moody color palettes are not something we’re used to, but darker shades are becoming more and more popular among brides and grooms, and it’s easy to see why! As the desire to have a unique wedding becomes a vital component of the planning process, the unusual, out of the ordinary details are sure to make yours standout from the rest.
I don’t know if it’s the mysterious undertones that have us hooked or if we are just sick of rustic, but I must say this is by far one of my favorite wedding trends. As Caroline Bingley said in Pride and Prejudice, “It’s positively medieval” — in a good way! Looking at the pictures, you can see that the details appear to be straight from the pages of a 15th century fairytale.
Perhaps we can credit my mom with the moody wedding, who boldly walked down the aisle in a flowing, black gown almost 30 years ago. Regardless of the originator, however, the brave brides and grooms who take a stand against the conventional wedding most certainly set the tone for trends we can’t get enough of, and the moody palette is no exception — thanks mom!
