If you’re looking for the hottest (or coolest) color combos for your wedding day, we’ve got you covered. Whether you want bold and bright or clean and crisp—here are some perfect pairs for you to consider for your big day.
We’re starting bold and bright with this summery color scheme. This color combo is perfect for a spicy fiesta or a hot vintage-glam wedding. Either way, these colors evoke romance. Bring the colors to life through poppies or anemones for your bouquet, colorful textured glassware for the table and mini bottles of hot sauce for a wedding favor.
We love this cool, relaxed color combo. It’s perfect for a lakeside or rustic outdoor wedding. The beauty of this color combination is that it looks great for bridesmaid dresses or ties on groomsmen. Although blue florals are limited, you can’t go wrong with delphiniums and globe thistle.
This color combo is great for a more upscale wedding affair and plays well with natural elements like greenery and birch. It also brings a sense of simplicity and class to your big day. If you’re wanting to add more texture, use bamboo or birch wood in your reception décor.
We like to dub this combo “The Vintage Grape”. While it’s typically used in the fall, it’s definitely making a name for itself for summer weddings. It’s an easy choice for the wine-loving couple getting married in a vineyard. Use blush pink for the bridesmaid dresses and to add a touch of softness to the florals. Keeping with the merlot theme, have empty wine bottles double as table décor or a flower vase.
Pops of purple are a must for an outdoor wedding. It pairs so well with softer colors like light grey and a faded green. Don’t be afraid to blend a variety of purples together to lighten up your color scheme. The obvious choice for florals is the wonderfully scented lavender, but Picasso calla lilies, orchids and hydrangeas are cool colors for a hot, summer wedding.
Want to show some U.S.A. pride on your wedding day? This patriotic-inspired color palette is perfect from Memorial Day to Labor Day. The trick is to use a mostly white and navy combo with subtle hints of the lighter dusty blue and deep red. To add extra Americana flair, serve barbeque for dinner and glass bottles of Coca-Cola for toasting! End the night with fireworks or sparklers for your grand exit.
This color combo is one of the sweeter palettes on our list. Play up the fruity colors by using real peaches for table décor with pops of gold for glamour. Dress the girls in short, airy bridesmaid dresses for your barn or garden wedding with yellow-gold florals in hand. For dessert, serve pretty pastel pink macaroons with your signature cocktail—the peach Bellini!
The classic combination of grey and navy is still a popular choice for fall. This perfect pairing creates a whimsical and enchanted evening atmosphere. A small pop of peach adds girlish charm to flower arrangements and bouquets, and it works wonderfully with navy and grey.
Although yellow is considered more of a summery color, mustard or ochre yellow gives you a dramatic, modern option. Pair it with another earthy color like sage green and you’ll have an awesome palette for your fall wedding. This combo is also perfect for an outdoor wedding where you can really play up the greenery.
Speaking of feminine florals, we love the combination of blush and evergreen. At first glance, it may look more like a spring or summer palette but add in some fall fabrics to elevate the pairing. Example: Use blush pink velvet table linens or dark green corduroy ribbon around the invitation.
We love the idea of pairing softer blue and pink hues with a jewel tone like boysenberry. It definitely adds softness to the darker, fall color. You’ll also find plenty of flower options with this diverse but complementary palette. Let your bridesmaids stand out with a regal hue and get the groom and groomsmen in on it too!
We are totally in love with these jewel-toned colors for a classy, fall wedding. Enhance the starry night vibes by complementing this deep, rich palette with a glistening gold. Mix and match the bridesmaid’s gowns for a glamourous and modern look.
Fall may be rich in color, but it’s also the season for more formal events—including your elegant nuptials. There’s nothing more timeless than a black and white wedding. Focus on mostly-white décor with pops of black to add understated romance. Looking to wow your guests? Add a black bow or headpiece to your all-white wedding gown.
Your wedding is totally your own, so don’t be afraid to go bold and bright with this eclectic palette. This color scheme is totally on trend and adds a fun quality to your fall wedding. If you’re wanting a more formal approach, use elegant patterned china and colored stemware. This brings more of a country club chic vibe and less of a boho vibe.
