I’m woman enough to admit it – I’m a latecomer to the khaki love train. When the color first started appearing on wedding blogs and on the glossy pages of magazines I was quick to admit the color had appeal but, I was just as quick to say: “Not for me.” Thanks to some of our lovely brides who had more sense about Khaki than I, we were able to work on beautiful, classic designs that have swayed my feelings about the color. I’m eternally grateful for discovering a new color crush! Khaki color schemes are quickly becoming some of my favorites.
Khaki + Blush
Paired with Blush, Khaki feels soft and romantic. I see visions of a delicate pink blooms, endless ruffles, and khaki suits coming together for a vintage, spring-y wedding. The soft pink compliments khaki well keeping the overall feel current. This isn’t the dated khaki uniforms are made of, this is a soft palette dreams are made of! Consider paring pink and khaki with the soft, sage green of succulents to keep things feeling up-to-date but still romantic and delicate.

Khaki + Navy
If you’re looking for something more tailored, refined, and classic to pair with khaki, then look no further than navy. Deep, slightly de-saturated navy looks stunningly chic paired with warm khaki. This color combination is also incredibly versatile Whether you’re planning a seaside soiree or a vineyard gala these colors will look smashing! Add a splash of kelly green to brighten the scheme or, add the blush from the above palette and bring a touch of romance to your wedding day.

When choosing your color palette don’t forget about the khaki. Not quite brown, not quite yellow, not quite grey, khaki can feel cool or warm depending on what it’s paired with. Give it another glance and maybe you’ll start to feel like I have, that this color is the best of both worlds.
