I really need your help! I can’t seem to find ANY champagne colored…….favor boxes, personalized ribbons, tags, personalized napkins! I have looked everywhere. I was wondering if there was any bride out there that use champagne as an accent color. My other color is serene (david’s bridal) and chocolate. Serene is impossible to find so I thought champagne would be easy, but I was wrong. I haven’t used any chocolate yet and I really don’t know how to tie that in either. I wasn’t really planning, I guess, on using chocolate, but I don’t know.
Any advise or help.
Thanks so much,

You should be able to find some champagne colored things here http://www.myownlabels.com– I know, it is quite difficult, it is one of our colors too and it’s mostly going to be coming out in the linens I think…

Yea champagne is most definatley hard to find, its one of my colors too, but i also have Chocolate and Ivory too. Chocolate is a lot easier to find and you can add in to pretty much anything. As for champagne, if you are going to DIY, you could get champange colored paint at your local craft store and work it in that way. . . just a suggestion 🙂

I’m using a fuchsia/champagne combination with chocolate as an accent.
You might want to check out the napkins and ribbons at For Your Party. They have several shades of blue; one is bound to might match Serene. They also have foil imprint in champagne. BellaTerra has favor boxes in "sand/sea port" that might go well, though they’re a bit pricey. MyWeddingLabels is another option for labels and tags.
In your search, remember that champagne can also be described as taupe, sand, almond, and a handful of other names.
Hope this helps! :o)

I happened to find some champagne colored card boxes and albums and guest books at Big Lots! The only thing is a store near you may or may not have the same thing… but sometimes it’s good to look in the most unlikely places!
(I didn’t end up buying them only because I was looking for white! But they were very pretty!)

I got married last October and our colors were chocolate and champagne. It was really quite easy to do but you may have to use ivory in some places instead. Your table linens can certainly by the champagne. I found champagne favor boxes and things at Michael’s craft store and online. Some of the major wedding invitation catalogues also have the champagne colored items. Hang in there. It can be done. 🙂

I was champagne and marine… we had a harder time finding stuff to match marine than champagne.

I am getting all my overlays, runners, sashes from http://www.weddinglinensdirect.com/index.html. They have a beautiful champagne AND cappachino color that is champagne-ish.
I got “opal” Stardream paper from PaperWorks and it is a really beautiful faint gold paper. Like a pearl.
After Christmas sales should have some champange stuff but I agree, not the easiest color but it is becoming more popular.
I’d reccomend trying the taupes, ecrus, cappachino, latte and sandy colors that are shimmery bc they tend to have that look.
