5 Rustic Wedding Color Palettes

Rustic Wedding Palettes Inspired by Nature

As I mentioned in my introductory post – I have no vision for my wedding. Okay, so that’s not entirely accurate. I know I want a woodsy, rustic, Rivendell feel to the event, but that’s about it. As you can imagine, that’s not very helpful for someone who’s trying to determine what her dream wedding looks like.

So, in the interest of making planning my future wedding just a little bit easier, I thought I’d crack open Adobe Illustrator, and make some palettes out of bouquets that I really liked. Maybe this will help me decide just what look I might be going for…right?

I decided to limit each palette to four colors – any fewer seemed like there’s always be left something missing, and any more seemed a little overwhelming. Naturally, not all colors will be dominant in an actual wedding color scheme, but one or two can be the main colors, with the others providing little pops here and there.

I actually had a lot of fun putting these rustic wedding color palettes together, and hope they can serve as inspiration!

Dusty Pinks and Gold


I just loved how the craspedia and roses looked next to each other here and really wanted to capture that in the palette.

Sea of Green


That pop of blue really stood out in this sea of green, though I love the idea of a mostly green wedding.

Woodland Tones


Pinecones and the lichen-like colors in this bouquet are a perfect base for a color palette that feels like it was chosen by woodland elves.

Succulent Chic


The purple succulent takes center stage in this palette, and is nicely accompanied by softer shades of green. This is a beautiful way to make purple your main color, without it being too overwhelming.

Wildflower Prep


The tones of these wildflowers seem kind of preppy when styled like this! This palette consists of four bold and strong colors, but they all work together perfectly.
