The wedding color palette you choose plays an important role in your big day, from indicating the mood of your wedding (formal, relaxed, upbeat, etc.) to reflecting your own personal style. Whether you already have your heart set on the perfect colors and are looking for some visual inspo to match, or you need a little help finding the right combination for your style, we (and the WeddingWire Color Palette Generator) are here to help.
The Perfect Wedding Color Palette for Every Style
The colors: Lavender, plum and sage green
Going for a boho look? Earthy colors, like green or brown, are good starting points. Add an accent color or two, such as lavender and plum purple, to keep your wedding color palette from becoming too monochromatic.
A greenery-filled bouquet is a boho wedding staple. Even with minimal flowers, fresh greens like eucalyptus look gorgeous and romantic.
An ethereal backless dress will totally wow the crowd at your bohemian wedding. Wear your hair loose and slightly undone, and carry a bouquet of dried lavender and wildflowers to complement the enchanted woodland wedding vibe.
Treat your guests to wedding favors that won't go to waste. We love these miniature bottles of gourmet olive oil. Look for a locally-made option to give out at your wedding, or create your own infused blend for a truly personal touch!
The colors: White, black and light blue
Black and white are always a stylish duo, but this wedding color palette feels especially chic when you add cool blue as an accent color. While navy blue is typically associated with formal or nautical styles, lighter shades of this primary color feel airy, fresh and modern.
Decorate a white stationery suite with an abstract blue watercolor wash. Each invitation and reply card will look like a unique piece of art.
Traditional with a twist: this white tuxedo jacket and black bow tie. Keep the look from feeling too formal by optiong for a slimmer fit and trendy accessories, like a greenery boutonniere or oversized watch.
The colors: Champagne, black and white
If a classic, formal affair is what you're after, then you can't go wrong with neutral colors. Black and white create the perfect base for a touch of sparkle: metallic champagne and gold.
Your guests will feel like royalty with detailed place settings that feature opulent gold accents and individual laser-cut menu cards.
Classic wedding centerpieces don't have to be perfectly shaped or symmetrical. This gorgeous garden-inspired arrangement feels totally elegant and sophisticated, thanks to the simple green, white and gold color palette.
Dress your 'maids in sequined gold gowns for an ultra-formal look. Not a fan of sparkles? Dresses in a matte, champagne-colored fabric, like chiffon or tulle, are equally chic.
Lastly, what would a classic wedding be without the classiest drink of all? Keep the champagne flowing during your cocktail hour, or knock tradition and treat your guests to pre-ceremony drinks (like Lauren Conrad did at her wedding) to start celebrating even sooner.
The colors: Navy, mint and coral
Whether you're hosting a relaxed beachfront wedding or a preppy country club reception, nautical wedding style is versatile, classic and fun. Our favorite wedding color palette for this style includes navy blue (a must-have for any nautical wedding), mint green, and coral.
A hand-illustrated map, wax seal and gold calligraphy all bring a nautical, seafaring vibe to this invitation suite.
Looking to switch things up from the oh-so popular blush or navy blue bridesmaid dresses? Mint green (or "seafoam" if we're keeping things nautical) is a lovely option. It's elegant and whimsical at the same time.
We're loving the bright, crisp combination of blue, coral and white on this tablescape. The mix-and-match china is great if you're going for a "vintage beach" theme, or you can opt for matching chargers instead to create a more traditional look.
The colors: Turquoise, yellow and white
This classically rustic trio is cheerful and inviting. If you're going for "modern rustic" style, use muted versions of these hues for your wedding color palette, and add earthy tones, like cream or tan to balance everything out.
A self-serve refreshment station is a welcome sight for thirsty guests, especially during the summer months. Offer your favorite cold drinks, like Southern sweet tea or lemonade, as guests are taking their seats before the ceremony or mingling during cocktail hour.
The colors: Blush, gold and turquoise
This vintage wedding color palette is all about soft pastel tones to inspire a romantic setting. Blush pink is still going strong when it comes to vintage weddings — accent it with gold and a hint of turquoise for a totally dreamy vibe.
We can't imagine this type of cake ever going out of style. A simple white buttercream wedding cake is easily transformed when fresh flowers and succulents are added into the mix. Those roses = swoon!
This tone-on-tone bouquet is the stuff that our vintage wedding dreams are made of. Fluffy light pink peonies, garden roses, astilbe, ranunculus, and eucalyptus were all tied together with raw edge ribbons to create this pastel beauty. We can totally envision this arrangement at a springtime garden wedding.
Bring a touch of shimmer to a loose updo by accessorizing with a floral gold hair comb.
Dine in style by renting a pair of vintage chairs for your sweetheart or head table. The chairs are a special way to differentiate you and your spouse's seats from everyone else at the reception (you are the VIPs, after all). Personalize them even more by adding signage or greenery.
