Behind The Card | Wedding Color Palettes Inspired by Papyrus

July 6, 2015

A vintage photo. A breathtaking sunset. A charming piece of stationery. Your wedding palette muse can come from anywhere.

Whether you need some last minute ideas for your own nuptials or a flawless finishing touch to coordinate that oh-so-special gift, Papyrus has the picture perfect color palette for you this season. Here are three of our favorites:


A Perennial Pleaser – Black & White

This graphic duo makes for a timeless wedding year after year. Inspired by the happy couple’s impeccable ensemble, all it takes are the right finishes to make this palette more sophisticated than simple.

That’s why we love our couture Papyrus card adorned with a handmade tux and intricate lace gown – the drama is in the details. White is the perfect backdrop for delicate touches and the contrast will create striking photos of your treasured memories.


The Glam Gala – Silver & Gold

Make the whole night shimmer with a combination that’s anything but understated. Nothing says glamour like tiers of a soaring cake dripping in sparkling gems and dramatic brooches. 

Imbue your evening with a vintage flair inspired by the gold lace and bejeweled butterflies on our Forever Love collection. Blending modern metallics with antique lace will put a fresh twist on these contrasting textures and bring a touch of luxury to an evening of romance.


Something Sassy – Patterns & Prints

Prints are perfect for the bride and groom with a little more daring. Go stylish and stunning with chevron in pale blue and gold (we also adore playful streamers for a summer soiree). Or liven things up with a bold paisley in modern shades of turquoise and grey.

If you absolutely love a busy pattern, but are worried it might steal the show, keep things understated yet interesting with tone on tone designs. Temper a vibrant color scheme by picking one focal point, like the cake or a few judicious accents, like the groomsmen’s socks, for a pop of pattern.


Whether you go classic chic, gorgeous glam or a modern motif, it all comes down to the look you love. Browse more Papyrus wedding designs, get inspired with our Pinterest boards, or customize your stationery and invites with Papyrus Online
