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!
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.
This brighter blue shade reminds us of the sky or the ocean, and helps bring these outdoor elements indoors for your wedding. It’s great for a tropical wedding or will help brighten your wedding photos on overcast days. It has a bit of green in it, making it a more natural, less bold version of cobalt blue.
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.
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.
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.
Pantone Colors of the Year
Another color from the color experts! Illuminating, a bright yellow, and Ultimate Gray are the Pantone Colors of 2021. Pantone describes these two shades as “a marriage of color conveying a message of strength and hopefulness that is both enduring and uplifting”. We can’t disagree; these are great colors to use for an uplifting event and an inspiring wedding day.
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.
Think Pale Pink
If you were a young girl with all things pink, you probably dreamed about your grand wedding day with some elements of the color! This color has morphed to fit every couple’s wedding dreams, from rose to mauve, but pale pink (Pantone 691 U) is the real winner of right now. It’s easy to incorporate this color into your florals and decor, and looks great as a primary color or used subtly for a slight feminine touch.
