If you’re familiar with our 2019 wedding trends, then you already know rust is having a huge moment right now! Up until this year, we’ve seen a lot of weddings with rust accents, but couples are proving that rust is the perfect color to base an entire palette around — especially if you want to add a retro twist to your special day. It pairs perfectly with neutral tones or vibrant accents and somehow simultaneously feels modern and vintage. If you’re wondering how to incorporate this trending color into your wedding, these rust-colored wedding palettes are just the inspiration you need!
