Pink, Red & Black in the Country - Option 2

country wedding
Our next bride, Amanda, will be having her wedding in the beautiful state of Vermont. I love summer weddings in Vermont. So charming!

What will the groom, Thomas, wear to this low-key, casual affair? Check it out. The key design element was the numbered back drop. I bet you can't guess what they are! They're actually numbered coasters from Heather Lins Home! I'm totally loving its rustic quality. These would be perfect as framed table numbers (hmm...hint, hint.).

Using the background as inspiration, I decided to warm up Amanda's wedding palette (pink, red and black) with browns and other neutrals. The watch, belt and boots are a great example of this - mostly black with a bit of brown. The pieces are a bit rugged, yet clean at the same time. And, check out the unique buckle on the belt! It's totally amazing. I chose a black vest and pants option without a suit jacket. The vest alone gives off a casual, yet polished look. The red tie has a bit of a pink pattern, which is totally in line with the bride's wedding colors. Then, a pink pocket square to give the vest a hint of color. Finally, the whole look is topped off with a straw fedora!

I hope this inspires your country affair!
