I recently had a bride tell me she wanted her bridesmaids in gray dresses and groomsmen in gray suits. While I believe there is a way to make any wedding colors or theme beautiful no matter how simple or understated, I knew this wasn’t right for them. The bride is an artist with a bright, bubbly and extremely sweet personality which she shares with her husband-to-be. They have a nearly four year old daughter who is equally boisterous, so a muted palette just wasn’t going to cut it.
This isn’t the first couple I’ve seen hesitate to make bold color choices. But why not? Remember brides and grooms — it’s your day and whatever you say goes! Everything about your wedding should reflect who you are as a couple or family. You don’t have to stick with basic colors if that’s not your style.
Be daring with this inspired palette of magenta, lime green and coral!
This palette is a great way to incorporate unique flowers and greenery like these tiny lime blooms with a bright magenta rose.
A coral runner adds a nice pop to table linens and still lets colorful centerpieces be the main attraction.
This gorgeous floral lace Nova gown by Tadashi Shoji for BLDN is playful, just like the color palette, yet still modern.
A coral lace flower girl dress could not be a better fit!
In lieu of even more lace, floral printed bridesmaids get a dress than can definitely wear again.
These colorful fortune teller invitations continue the playful theme and bold colors.
So there you go! Try this uniquely bold palette for a springtime garden wedding or summer soiree at the beach to show your personality and get guests in a lively mood for the event!
