After a day of cloud and wind and rain
Sometimes the setting sun breaks out again,
And, touching all the darksome woods with light,
Smiles on the fields until they laugh and sing,
Then like a ruby from the horizon’s ring,
Drops down into the night.
There is just something about walking down the aisle at sunset that increases the romantic "wow" factor of a wedding. We allow the sunset to take center stage in this blog post to give you ideas for a sunset themed wedding. Allow the natural ombre of the sky at dusk to inspire your color palette. The palette may vary depending on if you are in an isolated tropical location with an ocean backdrop, or a busy urban area dotted with buildings and city lights. Either way, your silhouettes walking town the aisle will complement the colors created as the sun dips beneath the ground.
What better way to give your bridesmaids free reign on their gowns than to just give them the palette? Provide your 'maids with a color palette and let them pick the best style that complements them the most. The result? A (happy) sunset hued bridal party--make sure to give the grooms a bit more direction and select their bowties for them!
From the cake to the flowers and decor, the sunset continues to be a common theme. We never tire of an ombre floral aisle. Get creative with your cake. Do you like the color spectrum of rich golds and reds, or do you lean towards purples and blues? Whatever colors in the sunset inspire you most can provide direction in your color palette.
The best part about a sunset inspired wedding? Riding off into the sunset as a married couple!
