Set the mood with these inspirations for RUST- a burnt orange or terracotta themed-wedding. What we love about this colour scheme is how it’s flexible depending on combinations, the centerpieces paired with gold accents are a great example to set a more luxurious and lively mood, whilst beige and wood textures give it a more rustic and dramatic vibe. What accents would you use to set the ‘rust’ mood?
