Richmond Weddings: Color Palettes

November 6th, 2012

Wedding color combinations are endless and brides are finding inspiration everywhere and anywhere!  Now that we’ve shared some of our favorite patterns for the season, we thought it was high time we showed you what color combos are catching our eyes this season as well.

Pantone is the authority on the color of the year and typically, the colors they select trend quickly! They have recently announced their predictions with the Fashion Color Report for Spring 2013 so if you’re looking to stay ahead of the wedding planning curve, we suggest you check it out.  With ten colors featured, there are endless combinations and there is sure to be a little something for everyone. We are particular fond of Poppy Red, Nectarine, Lemon Zest and Linen. These would be perfect for an outdoor spring affair!

Neon has been all the rage in fashion and we are dying to see it come into weddings! We love it so much in fact that we created our own color palette for it. The chartreuse and hot pink would be perfect accents on neutral background of stark white and a metallic grey. This is perfection for a summer wedding!

With fall in full swing, we have also been eyeing autumn weddings, and quite frankly, we are in love! But what we love even more is a color palette that surprises us for the season. The mustard yellow and rich brown are a little expected for fall but with the touch of aquamarine, it is an exciting change! Accented with the grey and nude, it will tie everything together.
