Hi, my name is Melissa Barrad the owner of I Do...Weddings! in San Diego, California. I'm here today to teach you how to mix white and off white in your wedding celebration. Now typically they don't match well. I find that most clients either pick white as their base color or off white. But there are ways to do it. So in thinking about mixing these colors what I thought about was what is naturally occurring that has both white and off white. And this perfect example is the sea coral sitting right here. You can see it has shades and of white and off white. So I think that by including a natural element such as this or perhaps grape wood, that you can really mix those colors well. I think that this would look absolutely gorgeous with an off white table cloth and perhaps a white napkin. And you can also do varying shades. The great thing about weddings today is that they're very unlike how prom used to be where everything would match. Where your dress would match the boutonniere which matched the corsage and the chair sash. All of those rules are out of the window. You can include anything you want. If you are a bride and you have an off white wedding dress that is not to say that you are going to be limited to off white linens. You can certainly have white linens. White makes colors pop where as off white makes things a little bit more subtle. And I think that once the sun sets on your wedding and it's the evening, especially if you're having an evening reception, and the majority of the candlelight is your actual light. You start to lose the differentiation between white and off white automatically. So I think it's definitely okay to match or mismatch depending on the style of your wedding. I'm Melissa Barrad with I Do...Weddings! and I just taught you how to mix white and off white in your wedding celebration.
