If you’re planning to introduce a jewel tone wedding theme, it’s important to decide on your shades. You might choose just one colour – perhaps a rich plum combined with a hint of metallic gold – or decide to embrace a selection of hues. We hope this colour palette will inspire.
While you might not choose a jewel coloured wedding dress, these tones are perfect for bridesmaids.
In deep shades of pink and purple, these bridesmaids rock their boho style.

If you’re feeling bold, why not choose a different colour of dress for each bridesmaid? So long as you remain within the jewel tones, the end result is stunning and each bridesmaid wears a gown that suits her skin tone.

Design and Décor
From table linen to stationery, bring colour in to your room. Often you need only a hint of these darker shades to make an impression.
Alongside flowers, mixed jewel tone jars and votives might be all the decoration you need.

... While this design suits the jewel tones but is a little more rustic – just the thing for a woodland style.
