Im leaning towards a jewel toned theme. Our wedding wont be until 2013 (just engaged!) but it will be in late Fall/Winter. I really want to use plums, deep red, evergreen, sapphire, and metallics. So I love the idea! I plan on just using the colors in different areas of the wedding. IE: the sapphire on bridesmaids and plum, red, evergreen in bouquets. I dont want it to be too matchy matchy but I really love the dark jewel tones!

@cgraceh: Hi I saw your post about a Bling Wedding and LOVE it.  I’m having a winter wedding and love the idea of jewels being incorporated.  I found a great site on Etsy: http://www.etsy.com/shop/CoutureWeddingHankie if you are looking to incorporate some handkerchief bling into your wedding.

@cgraceh: I wish I did. I’m thinking if you did a google or yahoo search for DIY brooch bouquet something would pop up.  Good luck.  I think I’m going more traditional.

Glad I found this! I’m also doing a vintage themed jewel tone wedding! I was starting to feel crazy esp when people ask “what are your colors?” lol. Ruby Red, Emerald Green, Sapphire Blue, and Amethyst Purple. I was trying to do a lot on my own but since I’ve found a very reasonable planner, we will begin collaborating next week. I love the diamond confetti in the different colors, which is something I will be doing to scatter on the tables, as well as line the bottom of the centerpiece vases and birdcage card holders. My dress has a sash and I’ll be adding a bejeweled brooch to it to give it a pop of color. Still figuring out ways to make it work for the decor.

 

@cgraceh: I’m also in the process of making a brooch bouquet and I’m so excited! To keep costs down, I’m asking friends, coworkers and family members to donate any brooches they have that fit my color scheme and theme. It has more sentimental value that way, liek you have a little piece of each of them on your special day Smile. I’ve also ben going to local thrift stores and buying multiples(I can usually get a discount that way) and asking for any single earrings they have, which can also fit nicely in the bouquet. I bought some brooches from Ebay where people sell a lot of 10 or more of them (just type in “vintage brooch lot” and you’ll see that people are selling large amounts of them you can buy all at once).

 

I’m still trying to figure out what to do for bridesmaids dresses though to go along with this theme. Any thoughts?

I’m doing a jewel themed wedding as well (Sapphire, Ruby, and Emerald). I was nervous about making it all work also. My caterer told me about the 60 30 10 rule. Have a base color (mine’s sapphire) and keep most of your decor that color, like the table linens. Then your “30” color will be your centerpieces. Mine are going to be ruby with sapphire and emerald accents. Then “10” is your last color, for me it’s emerald. I’m sure you can incorporate a fourth or fifth color in there. Good luck! Smile
