Now that winter has all but disappeared, we’re dreaming of the freshly cut spring wedding colors that brides get to play with. This year it’s about unexpected combinations that are (surprisingly) perfect for one another. So if you’re newly engaged and looking for a little inspiration when it comes to spring wedding colors, consider these totally of-the-moment color combinations. From bright and bold to subtle and sweet, each of these spring wedding colors and combinations has a distinct personality that will help you to define the ambiance for your own wedding.
Periwinkle & Eucalyptus
Turn your something blue into everything blue. Choosing a periwinkle and eucalyptus color palette is an updated take on soft romantic tones. Periwinkle (pictured above and below) is fresh and modern and totally unique. When paired with eucalyptus, the combination is simply stunning. We’re loving incorporating this scheme into your place settings (pictured below) or as a standout feature at the altar (above).
Peach & Turquoise
Are you a bright and bold bride? Then we’ve got just the duo for you. Peach and turquoise mixed together give off a whimsical vibe with a seriously playful attitude. Guests will appreciate the punch of color when done right. Mix turquoise bud vases with delicate stems in peach hues. Additionally, the combo works really well with bouquets of peach floral against turquoise bridesmaid dresses.
Yellow & Pink
Planning a garden wedding? A bright yellow and pink color palette should be on your mind. These spring wedding colors will turn the happy factor up to 11 and put a smile on all your guests’ faces. Displaying the colors with a glass beverage dispenser filled with pink lemonade and lemon slices is adorable…or better yet, ask your florist to scatter petals of pink and golden yellow down the aisle.
Rose Quartz & Serenity
Though pink has long been a mainstay in spring (and let’s admit it, year-round) weddings, we’ll see it come together in both traditional and unique pairings this season. There’s no doubt rose quartz and serenity is a top color combo for spring weddings, especially when the colors were Pantone’s 2016 colors of the year. The combination is truly soft, romantic and timely irresistible. We love the idea of extending this trend to your shoes, too! Also on the must-have list? Rose-infused cocktails. Yum.
Lilac & Gray
One of our favorite combinations of spring wedding colors is a palette of lilac and gray, which is surprisingly neutral. This color combination will give your wedding a tasteful punch of color without going overboard on purple. Plus, the combination pairs beautifully with everything from your tables to your dessert. Using this color scheme within your table design is so simple and dainty. And when it’s topped with earl gray lavender ice cream for dessert? The result is simply magical.
Navy & Peach
Pairing navy and peach with accents of gold is boldly beautiful against the lush greens of spring. And guess what? Using navy doesn’t necessarily have to mean nautical. This trend can be incorporated pretty much everywhere, from your wedding invitations to the reception with navy table linens and draped peach curtains.
Red & Mint
Yes, we said red and green. And no, it’s not Christmas! We love the idea of bright red paired with subtle mint accents and lightly shaded greenery. The combination is more retro than vampy, and incorporating it correctly within your wedding can really make a serious statement. Guests can feast their eyes on a standout watermelon and mint cocktail – a surefire win at your cocktail hour. And later on? A mint cake decorated with large red floral (faux or real).
Tan & Sage
Is your wedding woodsy and rustic? If so, tan and sage are a win-win. If you’re having an outdoor wedding or your wedding venue has wood floors and cream walls, this mix is perfect for you. The color scheme is so neutral and elegant, and perfect for venues that don’t need much decorating. It’s simple and charmingly rustic, yet can go from black-tie to backyard in an instant.To organically integrate this trend, also consider long wood farmhouse tables adorned with gold candles and arrangements of soft greenery. P.S. Having a beach wedding? We love the modern look of a tan wedding dress for a seaside event, too.
