I am having a small, casual, backyard wedding, and I am thinking about not having colors at all. Did anyone else do this? Without colors, what did you do to tie things together so that it didn’t look completely haphazard and slapdash?

@crescentloon23: Are you saying that everything is going to be white? That can be very elegant but doesn’t say backyard to me.

@julies1949: Gotcha. That does sound elegant, but no, I was just thinking of not having a color scheme, like blue and yellow, or something like that. Instead, there wouldn’t be a guiding color or two, and I’m wondering what other things people did to make things look uniform even without using the same colors.

What about same… feel…? If that makes sense.. Since it’s backyard wedding, you could stick to neutrals and nature-y deails.. browns and beiges, wood and leaves..
Or have a common element bringing things together, such as the currently oh-so-popular burlap! You can do anything with burlap! Have something burlap in the centerpieces, or a burlap ribbon around chairs, or add burlap to other decor around the backyard… just to tie everything together.
Or another popular thing right now is chalkboards.. you could use chalkboards for signs throughout which could bring a cohesive feel to it all!
Or, use metal to bring things together! Bright silver or gold accents throughout.
I’m sure it will be beautiful whatever you decide! 🙂

@lovelove1028: Those are all great idea, thanks! I keep seeing burlap things, especially on Etsy, but I hadn’t realized it was a current trend!

You could pick a color family instead of specific colors. Neutrals, pastels, earth tones, jewel tones, bright/rainbow, etc. I actually think this looks better than having the same one or two colors for everything.
