Spring Wedding Ideas: Color Schemes


Spring is a magical season for color schemes, and spring wedding ideas can span everything from intimate Victorian garden celebrations, to ritzy, well-lit indoor banquet halls for a spring wedding reception.

Here are a few ideas for color schemes:

Pink: Pink is a fabulous wedding color because it is so lighthearted, yet elegant. Some combinations are soft, some are earthy, and some are more dramatic. Here are a few examples: pink and green (optional blue accents); blues and whites (with accents of a lighter pink), pink and blue; pink, ivory, and sage; or pink, white and chocolate brown.

Lavender: Lavender, like pink, is also elegant, but adds a coolness that can be the perfect match for another warmer color. Consider: Lavender and pale yellow; lavender and chocolate brown; ivory, lavender, and pastel green; ivory, lavender and sage; lavender and blue (with an accent shade of berry); lavender and a darker purple (with a warmer accent color such as coral), or lavender and pink.

Gray: If you are looking for spring wedding ideas that are more unique, incorporate a shade of metallic gray or silver into your color combination as an accent. Here are some combos: plum, gray and mauve; gray and cherry red (with an accent of yellow), orange and gray, or lavender, gray and coral. (Hint: gray or silver also makes a wedding appear more vintage, if you are going for that look).
