Color Your Style

You've found some great colors, but what goes with what? Should it be a main color or an accent color? Can it be use it in the bridesmaid dresses or just a part of their bouquet? Do I match everything?!?! 

There are so many ways to marry up (no pun intended) great color combos, you may be surprised when and where these brides used their wedding palette.

Jewel-tone Reds …

In this palette, the main color is a beautiful garnet, offset with very light creams, even a touch of brighter pink here and there. Just because you picked your ONE favorite color doesn't mean you can't accent it with tones of that color. It keeps a single color from looking like too much.

… and Purples.

We start to see jewel tones as the weather cools and people want to feel warm, cozy and FABULOUS. Jewel tones are trending away from cool tones like teal into warm reds and deep purples.

Bright …

It's hard to imagine, but adding one color vs. another can totally change the color palette. Adding a bright pop of yellow can take these colors to the playful side, where adding a few muted neutrals make the navy the subtle but sophisticated hero. Either way we adore them.

… to Light

When using florals in your wedding design, sometimes it's hard to decide if green is another color or not. Good news! It can go either way. Green always brings in a natural, neutral tone, but you can easily elevate by using more greenery or bright vibrant leaves.

Sunny …

The shade of color can make a difference for sure, but that doesn't mean you can't use more than one bright color in your wedding. If you use your punches sparingly, they really shine. Why not mix things up and give each bridesmaid a different and gorgeous color dress. It makes each girl unique in her own way. Here it's all tied together with the navy and blush, two neutral-ish colors that offset the vibrancy of the yellows and reds.

… to Sorbet

Are you starting to see it? All these palettes can go so many ways, bright and sassy or
calm and serene. If it helps put your mind at ease, use some of the techniques that these brides are using and you can't go wrong!

Coral Surprise

We were surprised and delighted when we found this wedding. The main color being
a lovely shade of lavender, but then the bride brings in unexpected pops of blush,
salmon and coral that look amazing together! It's so great seeing palettes that try something new and different. This combo turned out stunning.

Lovely Lavender

Keeping expensive florals to a minimum and utilizing more greenery really helps your budget. Use things like rose and sprigs of lavender in bouquets, but then use greenery up and down your tables. We're seeing this trend more and more.

And Pretty Pastels

We couldn't help but show you one more beautiful palette, this one with great pastels. It doesn't have to be how you use your colors, but how the photographer take the photographs. A light and breezy wedding deserves light and breezy photography with lots of light.

All of these weddings have found their special spark and used colors that feel like their season and personality. We hope it's inspired you to take a chance with your color palette and find the right colors for you.
