The natural elements of wood paired with the abstract, unique shape of the wood will help to give your wedding a unique look and feel.
Light blues, teals, tans and sea foams greens can all be used to give your wedding breath of salt air. Consider these colors when you look at dressing the groomsmen or the bridesmaids. Another clever way to include these colors is to place antique-style bottles in these colors to accent tables and other fixtures.
