This year’s couples are planning amazing affairs to bring their friends and families together again at last! If you’ve had time to research wedding inspiration on Pinterest, Tik Tok, or Instagram, then now is the time to select your favorite theme, get crafty, and knock out your wedding color palette.
Your wedding color palette can help you navigate through many future choices for the big day. Sharing your wedding colors with your cake caterer, florist, coordinator, or Rochester wedding party attire provider will help make their jobs easier to ensure they have the correct swatch or shade of colors you intended for!
New Wedding Colors to Consider
These wedding colors are some of the most popular (and easy to find matches for) or these palettes are trending up and are great wedding colors to consider for your upcoming day!
You may have never been to Morocco, (maybe the Morrocan Pavilion at Epcot in Disney World counts enough!), but the immense culture the North African country provides is captivating! In the Morrocan cities of Casablanca and Marrakesh, carpet weaving is a traditional craft, and if you’ve been shopping for any textiles lately, you may have noticed how prints from this area of the world are everywhere! (Morocco is close to Portugal and Spain which help inspire Target’s lively home brand, Opalhouse.) There are multiple colors of Morocco which will help you tie in many elements of your day to fit the lively theme. The main colors are blue, green, red, and yellow, and many of these color schemes mix in blends of these colors like turquoise and orange.
Maybe being green is your mission in life (reduce, reuse, recycle!), or you’re just all about plants, sage green is shining bright in 2021. This grey-green color of green is perfect for tying in bridesmaid dresses to florals to centerpieces while keeping your wedding day a muted garden of green and white. Floral arrangements in this color scheme often include all-white flowers with plenty of greenery like eucalyptus, Ruscus stems, olive leaf branches, dusty miller, or fern leaf stems
Vibrant may be a great theme for 2021 invoking energy and happiness into everyone at events! A color scheme of colors you’d see in a grand sunrise fits this description well. Since they’re all warm tones, reds, yellows, and oranges all work well together in tablescapes and bouquets. This color scheme reminds us of summertime and sunshine, and can help bring energy into an indoor space and complement the evening’s sunset.
Shades of Blue
What’s a wedding without something blue? We have plenty of blue hues to consider as a staple color for your day and to use a subtle accent throughout your wedding day elements. If you’re going blue, blue uplighting is a must for simple wedding reception decor.
Fun Fact: The 2020 Pantone Color of the Year was Classic Blue. We think it deserves another chance in 2021.
Being one of the most popular colors of suits, navy is a great alternative to black for your wedding day. It works great when paired with a warm color like maroon, pink, orange, or yellow-gold.
If you’re looking for the truest, bright blue, choose cobalt. This shade of blue pops in bridesmaid dresses and in decor, and would look great paired with other bold colors like indigo, purple or perhaps turquoise for a peacock-inspired look.
Turquoise has more green in it, making it a unique blue shade, but it sure is a popular one, especially among those getting married by the beach, or wanting that beachy vibe on their big day. Another option is to pair baby pink with turquoise to bring a whimsical wedding look to life.
Where to Include Your Wedding Colors
After nailing down your wedding colors, where should you incorporate them? The standard spots to bring your theme to life are in your wedding invitations, bouquets and floral arrangements, centerpieces, cake, linens, and perhaps your own bridal accessories like your shoes, nail color, or jewelry. The bridesmaid dresses and men’s tie, bow tie, or pocket square also help to add color to the day, if you so choose. Keep your colors in mind when considering any other decor elements at the ceremony or reception, from your card box, guest book, and gift or cake table.
