Choosing wedding decorations and details can be a lot of fun, and for many brides that process starts by selecting the perfect color scheme! If you’re stumped about what those colors should be, the 2016 trends in design might be able to help. From subtle updates to traditional color schemes, to out-of-the-box ideas, here are what top wedding experts are projecting as the best colors for this year’s weddings!
Neutrals with Flair!
From slate gray to creams and other shades of ivory, many brides and grooms are choosing to go with a neutral basic as the base for their color scheme. These allow for a variety of colors to be used as accents, from the flowers to the bowties, and they also pair well with all kinds of metallics, which continue to be popular, year-after-year.
Perhaps best of all, these are timeless shades that will never go out of style, and will look good on anyone and at any wedding venue!
From emerald to moss, and even bright chartreuse, greens make lovely wedding colors when paired with neutrals, like the above, or many shades of pink. If you’re hosting an outdoor wedding, choose shades that will compliment the foliage around you, whether that calls for rich jewel tones or a brighter, more springtime shade.
Blush Is Back
While various hues of pink have always been popular wedding shades, blush is continuing to have a big moment. This subtle and chic pink is a grown-up, and slightly more gender-neutral way to honor your favorite color than going with a bolder hue that might scream Barbie dream house, or bubble gum. Plus, it pairs incredibly well with rose gold, and who doesn’t love that?
Marsala, plum, and other rich shades of both red and purple are beautiful for fall weddings, especially, and they pair well with a variety of neutrals, including rich greens, navy blues and chocolate browns.
Plus, it’s easy to find a variety of flowers in these shades, regardless of the season.
