If you have seen any of our previous wedding blogs (if you haven’t, I would highly recommend them) for 2016 then you should know that bold colors are very trendy this year. Or as Mugatu would say “They are so hot right now”. But if you are complementing colors challenged like some you may not be able to choose the best colors to go along with your bold color of choice. No worries, it happens to the best of us, which is exactly why we wanted to share some of the best bold color palettes trending for 2016.
Purple and Green
Don’t scroll past just yet! Believe it or not it is one of the biggest growing color trends for weddings, and when done right it is absolutely stunning. I know the thought of purple and green may not scream elegant wedding to you, but let us show you some of the best ways to pull it off.
Deep purples and greens complemented by an almost gold tone give a very earthy and elegant feel.
Coral and Gold
This combination really jumps out at you, but not in a bad way. The bright coral alongside the shimmering gold create a bold and opulent look for your wedding. Gilded invitations, coral dresses with shimmering gold shoes, there are so many ways this color combination can work.
Blue and Green
Blues and greens have always gone well together, but you don’t have to be planning an ocean inspired wedding to use these colors. Matching the right tones of blue and green with an accenting neutral really make the colors pop.
Yellow with shades of pink and green
There isn’t a happier color on earth than yellow. And your wedding day is supposed to be one of the happiest days of your life, right? So putting the two together just makes sense. But you will want to throw in a few softer shades to help tone down the yellow and not let it take over. Soft pinks greens, and a stabilizing neutral color do this beautifully.
Pink and Green
Not big on yellow? That’s ok! Just stick to the pink and green. You can go soft for a romantic feel, but this year is all about the bold color. So don’t be afraid to go all in. You could even throw in a few other of your favorite bold colors, but I would recommend choosing a neutral to try and help bring them all together.
Of course these aren’t all of the color schemes you can choose from, they aren’t even all of the trendy ones, but you may have noticed a theme. Mix and match different shades and hues of your favorite colors and balance them with a neutral of your choice. There are several website that will help you create a color palette of your own! (Paletton.com is a good place to start) So set aside some time to sit down and play around with colors.
When choosing a color palette for your wedding, there are several parameters to keep in mind. The colors will set the mood for the entire event. For example, if you choose soft muted colors, you will convey elegance and sophistication, whereas bold bright hues will suggest a lighter, more fun mood for your event.
Summer 2014 color trends offer something for everyone. Blue seems to be the super color of the year. Navy blue especially is being paired with everything from traditional white to bolds like canary yellow and lime green. Other than blue, the major color trends for summer weddings are bright and fun or soft and serene.
If your venue is more casual and light, the bright and fun colors may be a great way to create the kind of atmosphere you're after. Teals, Fuchsias, Yellows and Oranges can be used in fabrics and florals to enhance the special day you have planned.
If your venue is more traditional and you have elegance in mind, then soft and serene may be the way to go. This palette uses creams and grays as a backdrop for mint greens and light pinks and peaches. Table linens and florals done in these soft tones will create a classic refined look that you'll cherish in photos for yours to come.
Whether you're bold and bright or soft and serene, 2014 has color trends to compliment your plans for a perfect day. Happy Planning
