Like dress styles and dessert options, wedding color trends change from year to year. Here are some color trends you’re likely to see if you attend a wedding in the next year.

Bright and Bold

Tangerine and hot pink … emerald green and aqua … red and pink – for some couples, the bolder the better! These color combinations are perfect for spring and summer weddings, especially if you’re planning something informal.

Going Green

Have you noticed how much mint green there is on wedding boards on Pinterest? Choose a color that fits your wedding season: Mint, lime, or Kelly green for spring or summer; dark forest green for fall and winter. You can’t go wrong with green!


Sunshine yellow is hot! The overlooked color is showing up at weddings from the beach to the barn. Yellow doesn’t good with every skin tone, so be careful if you’re choosing yellow bridesmaid dresses. Use as an accent color if yellow is too bright for you!


Gray is the new black! An interesting neutral, gray is lovely paired with soft shades of pink and purple. Choose silver gray, and put it with peach. Gray gives a vintage look to your wedding and is less harsh than black, especially for outdoor and garden weddings.
