From sharing your lasting promises to each other to dancing as lifelong partners to the tune of your favorite song, your wedding day is filled with unforgettable moments. So, why not make it an even more magical day? As we’ve previously shared in our article titled ‘How to Make Your Wedding Day Extra Colorful’, this can be achieved by adding more color to the affair with a stunning color palette. And this element shouldn’t be taken for granted, as it helps set the tone of the event whether it is determining the dress code or building the atmosphere.
To choose a palette that works best for you, the key is to choose colors that complement your skin tone, especially if you’re going for a non-traditional dress. PrettyMe recommends dark hues for fair-skinned individuals, avoiding greens or yellows for medium-skinned individuals, and pastels for a flattering look for dark-skinned individuals. Even if you’re sticking to the traditional white wedding dress, you don’t want to choose colors that won’t have you looking your best for your wedding photos.
That said, we’ve listed down some unique color palettes that are sure to make your wedding one of the most wonderful days of your life. After all, it’s the celebration of love between you and your partner, which is why you should pull out all the stops for this special occasion. Here’s what you need to know:
Dusty Rose + Gold
Although it’s a simple combination of two colors, this palette is perfect for whimsical weddings. The feminine shade of dusty rose is a lovely color for bridesmaid dresses. Or, the bride can channel her inner princess by wearing a dress in this hue like this organza number from David’s Bridal. Either way, this sweet subdued shade of pink will surely make the wedding more romantic. And blending it with gold will help create a fairytale-like atmosphere, as it adds a magical touch to the event. You can add delicate details by having gold-color plates and glassware or placing gold light fixtures in the reception area.
Sage Green + Beige + Ivory
When it comes to casual outdoor weddings, your color palette should be one that’s soft and relaxed, since they’ll need to match the natural elements of the venue. This is why these three colors work well together, as they’re not too intense, but still provide a charming rustic touch. You can incorporate this color combination by letting the neutral colors — beige and ivory — serve as a base for the sage green shade. For instance, the groom can wear a nice beige suit with an ivory dress shirt under a striking yet sophisticated sage green tie like this one featured in Town & Country.
Midnight Blue + Silver
If you have sights set on a formal and traditional wedding, you can trust the color partnership of midnight blue and silver. The former is a sophisticated shade that will never go out of style, which is why pairing it with a metallic color completes the refined theme. Since these colors are very elegant, you won’t have to exert too much effort to create a memorable event. You can let midnight blue be the background color of the wedding, and let touches of silver build a dazzling environment for your special day.
