Preppy in Poppy – Seaside Summer Wedding Inspiration

Spring is the perfect time for some preppy in poppy wedding inspiration – a sweet, retro chic shade! The ever popular coral is an ideal fit for summer – the bright and sassy tone is fabulous for the warmer months – but now is the time for a more delicate color. That’s exactly where poppy comes in! On its own, poppy is flirty and feminine, making it a natural match for a light, airy palette of white and gold. The classically inspired combination lends itself well to a preppy chic event design – think bridesmaids in A-line silhouettes, broad stripes, and men in patterned salmon suits!Preppy in Poppy Summer Wedding Inspiration with Adorable Retro Chic Style | See More!

Unlike it’s brighter sibling coral, poppy is light and soothing enough to be used as a primary color for an event design, meaning it can take center stage when it comes to decorations that take up the most ‘visual real estate’ at a wedding. Clothes, backdrops, and table linens are the most prominent decorations that a couple can personalize (Ballroom carpets come as they are!) so it’s important to pick a main color that won’t overwhelm when it comes to the overall look and feel of a reception. Poppy is gentle enough to dominate square footage at a wedding, especially when paired with accent decor – think chairs, place settings, and flowers – in complementary shades of white and gold. Incorporate a visual punch with pops of vivid cobalt blue or fresh, spring green to add a modern touch!
