The charm of a true southern wedding can be felt through the warm hospitality, gathering of family, and inviting decor. Whether you’re from the south or not, you too can enjoy planning a wedding that captures the same southern charm. For starters, it’s important to remember that simplicity is key. You don’t need to be too formal with your wedding when Southern decor is all about incorporating traditional with relaxed elements.
Speaking of traditions, you can also carry on the custom of mixing the old with the new. Think mason jar floral arrangements, weathered wood signage, and burlap ribbons - essentially rustic vintage with a modern flair.

The striking combination of dusty rose and navy blue for a southern wedding creates a soft yet rich palette to compliment your vintage decor.
To further appreciate the beauty of these colors in a true southern wedding, let’s take a closer look at Megan and Mark blissful wedding day!
