Your wedding color scheme will set the tone for the entire day. Darker hues are more formal and can be considered more refined and stylish, while lighter tones are more playful and romantic. By mixing and matching different shades of the rainbow, you can achieve all sorts of different tones and settings to help set the mood for your wedding. Here are eight gorgeous color combinations that are sure to fit any wedding style and personality.

1. Mint, gold and peach

Mint green has been an ultra trendy color for the past few years, and with its versatility as a pastel cool color, it is easily paired with most other shades of the rainbow. It looks particularly nice when paired with gold, both matte and sparkly, as well as warmer pastel tones such as peach. This contrast of warm versus cool colors in pastel tones is enough to be eye-catching and unique, yet it is not too striking of a difference to seem mismatched. These three colors create a gorgeous rustic springtime wedding palette.

2. Pink, grey and ivory

Another fabulous combination of pastel and neutral hues is pink, grey and ivory. Pink and grey have long been coupled together as a beautiful contrast of light and dark, and the added neutral shade of ivory completes the palette. The best part about pink and grey is that no matter what shade you choose to go with for either color, the pair will still look great together. Baby pink and charcoal grey go hand-in-hand just as well as dark pink and light grey, and every combination in between. This palette is perfect for a soft, romantic look at your wedding.

3. Navy, yellow and white

If you’d like to channel a nautical theme in your wedding, navy and white is the typical color scheme you’ll want to go with. Adding in yellow for a pop of brightness can both enhance and diminish the nautical effect; use a pale yellow to maintain the nautical theme, or use a bright or dark yellow for a totally different feel. Regardless of whether or not you are trying to achieve a certain theme, there is no question that navy, yellow and white are gorgeous colors that go perfectly together.

4. Coral, teal and light grey

Two very popular colors for 2014 are coral and teal, and they just happen to pair amazingly together. These two bright hues are fun and coordinate well with a light grey to balance out the palette. Perfect for a spring or summer outdoor wedding, these shades are sure to create a fun and happy atmosphere for any ceremony or reception. The contrast between coral and teal added with the basic neutral of light grey is a beautiful color scheme for those who love bright colors.

5. Purple, silver and blue

If you’re looking for the perfect cool color scheme for your wedding, purple and blue are great colors due to their many tints and versatility of mixing and matching. Choose from light shades of purple, such as lavender and lilac, or darker shades of purple, such as violet and royal purple. Select a shade of blue, ranging from periwinkle blue to bright dazzling blue or dark navy blue. Throw in silver in either matte or sparkly as your neutral and you’ve got a winning combination. Both purple and blue are very popular choices for uplighting your reception as well.

6. Orange, white and goldenrod

Celosia orange is one of the trendiest colors for 2014 and this gorgeous color adds a splash of color and warmth to your wedding. Combine with goldenrod yellow and white to make the perfect blend of warm, sunny colors. If you’re not convinced that bright orange is for you, burnt orange and a deep orange red also look great with this lovely shade of golden yellow. White is the perfect neutral color to incorporate into this wedding scheme to add a touch of freshness and lightness. These citrus colors are perfect for spring, summer and fall.

7. Emerald, jade and charcoal

Emerald and jade are two beautiful gemstones, each a stunning shade of green. Emerald is a richer, darker green while jade is a lighter, more muted green. The two perfectly complement one another and are both flattering colors on people of all shapes and sizes. Use alongside a charcoal grey color to accentuate the lively, radiant emerald as well as the serene, softer jade greens. This color scheme is perfect if you’re planning a rustic, nature themed wedding.

8. Red, black and taupe

Red and black are two very dramatic colors that achieve a sense of romance and emotional power. They are the ideal colors to use in your wedding if you are planning a modern, formal affair that is centered around the energy of your love for one another. To balance out the darker tones, use a creamy or smoky taupe color to lighten up the theme and create a beautiful contrast in colors. This combination of red, black and taupe is ideal for winter weddings, though the colors would look great year round.

  3. nelo says:

    My wedding is this September2015. I need Ur help urgently! I’m confused if the colour I’ve chosen is good or too serious. I chose emerald green,turquoise blue,purple and white. I don’t know if they rhyme. Green is my best colour so as my late Mum’s sad she is not alive to help me plan. Coral is also a nice colour but not sure how to blend it in.please I need Ur help urgently! It’s better to receive Ur message through mail. Humbly waiting for Ur reply. Thanks Nelo

  4. Hope says:

    Nelo, I’m sorry about your Mum’s physical absence at such time as this. My daughter is also getting married, just before yours. And like you, we both share a liking for Green and Gold. She has chosen Emerald Green, Rose Gold and Ivory.

    I think your choice of Emerald Green, Turquoise Blue and White will blend nicely, better than an addition of Purple. Or if you must have Purple, it may be better to leave the blue shade out, otherwise you’ll end up with three strong colours.

    You can try to compare your choice of colours by visiting fabric stores with a friend and checking the combinations of various colours, also asking the opinions of people around, especially the store staff.
