It’s almost spring, and this means wedding season is almost here! If you just got engaged and are starting to plan your wedding, or if your wedding was bumped to 2021 due to the pandemic and you need to change up the plans because your date is now in a different season, you may be looking for some color inspiration. Here are new wedding color schemes that will certainly boost your mood and get you excited for brighter, warmer days ahead!
1. Chambray and Papaya Orange
We always see blue and peach, so why not update it a little? The shades of blue in your denim jeans or a variety of indigo hues paired with a deeper shade of peach and coral (just don’t go so far as burnt orange or rust) is the perfect palette for a spring wedding. Use these colors for boho or tropical, lively wedding themes in cool outfits, table linens, and floral décor.
2. Pantone Colors of the Year
Let’s not forget Pantone’s color of the year for 2021: PANTONE 17-5104 Ultimate Gray + PANTONE 13-0647 Illuminating. Yellow may seem intimidating because it naturally stands out, but with the right texture on décor, it’s very easy to match and gray is the perfect neutral to balance it out. Vibrant and sunny yellow plus casual gray makes the perfect palette for a brunch wedding, which is also becoming more popular nowadays.
3. White and Greenery
Neutrals have been a wedding trend for years now, and for good reason. They’re clean, refreshing, and can go perfectly with a minimalist wedding. Green and white are easy to find, from stationery and floral arrangements to other natural elements. Any shade of green pops best with white and its other hues—ivory, champagne, beige, cream—and creates a calm, and even dreamy atmosphere, which is what everyone needs in their wedding!
4. Soft Jewel Tones with Deep Accents
Jewel tones may seem deep and heavy for the season, but you can always go for their pastel-colored counterparts. Lilac, light pink, mint, and peach are a staple when it comes to spring weddings, but don’t be afraid to use dark hues to accent these pastels. Use a little plum, navy, or burgundy to break away from the traditional pastel palette and add a lavish touch to your wedding.
5. Lights and Brights
Couples nowadays are embracing bold and bright colors, like fuchsia, yellow, turquoise, and cobalt blue—and not separately! Collectively, these bright colors will create a beautiful, fun, and modern wedding. Use neon signs that will accent areas around your venue and create statement backdrops and seating charts. You can even request your bartender to concoct a brightly-colored specialty drink. Bright colors induce celebratory moods, and you’ll create excitement for your guests from the time they see your invite!
Wedding colors go beyond the bridesmaid dresses and floral arrangements. These colors will be seen throughout the wedding, from paper goods to plates and other specialty décor. Make sure you choose the colors that blend well with your venue and reflect your personality.
