Two Ways to Use Dusty Blue and Burgundy in Your Wedding: Rustic vs. Elegant

Dusty blue and burgundy are definitely hot colors for 2018! Hitch Studio decorated two back-to-back weddings with the same wedding colors, but two very different styles. Can’t decide which is for you? Let’s dive into all the elements of two weddings and how they used dusty blue and burgundy in their rustic and elegant weddings.

RUSTIC WEDDING: Lexi and Tyler’s dusty blue and burgundy style

Lexi and Tyler got married in the Catholic church in Brookings, SD and then held their down-home, fun-loving, low-key but beautiful reception at Egger’s Barn near Sinai, South Dakota. The dinner was held in a tent outside the barn and the dance was in the loft of Egger’s Barn! It was charming and you could feel all the cozy love in that tent.

Hitch Studio decorated the tables with dusty blue and burgundy, paired with wood boxes, wood slabs, deer antlers, lanterns, and a true rustic style. The tent had bistro lights strung around the perimeter and a ladder display of cupcakes with their wedding cake on a wooden spool. Hitch Studio decorated their head table with matching bistro lights and used flameless candles, which ensured that none of them would blow out in a partially outdoor/tent wedding reception. In the barn loft, guests were greeted with music, popcorn, and a full bar! It was simple and delightful, just like Lexi and Tyler.

Interested in having a barn wedding? Although Egger’s is no longer available, there are four other barn/outdoor venues near Brookings! Take a look at each of them highlighted here. Hitch Studio specializes in making sure you have everything you need for your outdoor wedding — even the things that seem to slip through the cracks. We have it all covered! (For example, we made sure the porta-potties were labeled for the ladies, we re-lit the propane heaters, we packed away the top tier of their cake, we made sure the ice didn’t melt, we refilled their popcorn bar, we packed up all their decorations from the tent reception, and we put out their cute bell favors! We are your go-to for anything on your wedding day [like guest books and can koozies]).  🙂

ELEGANT WEDDING: Ashley and Robert’s dusty blue and burgundy style

Ashley and Robert also chose an outdoor wedding venue — Sylvan Green on the campus of South Dakota State University! They met at SDSU and walk their dog on campus almost every summer night. It was a special venue for them and so Hitch Studio helped make it happen! We contacted all university contacts needed to have a wedding on campus, got the key to the Campanile, coordinated the set up of 250 chairs on Sylvan Green, and decorated the altar with an arbor and “In Memory/Unity” table for them! We decorated the wagon used to pull the CUTEST flowers girls and took it all down after the ceremony, so they could go enjoy the rest of their wedding day! No need for family and friends to stay and put everything way. That’s what Hitch is for.

They chose to use dusty blue and burgundy in a very elegant, sophisticated way at their reception. They held their appetizer social-style reception at McCrory Gardens and chose to have their head table in a King’s Table style! We loved it! Because it was a social-style reception, we decorated 10 cocktail tables and a few dinner tables, which encouraged much mingling from guests. We incorporated a gorgeous seating area and rented vintage furniture from Prairie Lane Vintage Rentals in Sioux Falls to accomplish that. Hitch Studio did the calligraphy handwriting on their menu board, and printed custom name cards for each place setting at the head table, so their wedding invitations, programs, name cards, and even thank you cards would match!

Robert is a fan of Ernest Hemingway, so to make the reception even more personal, we framed 10 Ernest Hemingway quotes around the room. The couple also had key bottle openers for favors and many other details that were special to them. That’s another Hitch Studio speciality — we love to make sure the personalities of the couple are evident at the wedding and reception. It makes it less Pinterest-y and more memorable and personal.
