3 of Our Favourite Colour Palettes
A wedding day is a timeless moment that deserves to be celebrated with just the right combination of colours! From coastal cool blues to classic crisp whites, when it comes to choosing tones for your special day there are endless possibilities.
If you’re looking for ideas that won’t go out of style anytime soon, we’ve picked our top three favourites. Coastal colours, timeless white, and Tuscan themed for the perfect Autumn wedding! There are so many options out there, so we’ve given you an easy starting point.
Coastal colours bring an air of coastal sophistication thanks to their muted blues and greens.
White is always in fashion too, as a timeless classic – soft but alive with its subtle beauty. Last but not least, try a mixed palette inspired by the rolling hills and vineyards of Tuscany. Warm terracotta accents combine with a backdrop of olive green for a romantic yet vibrant atmosphere that’s sure to please. No matter what kind of look you’re going for on your wedding day, it’s easy to find something perfect with these three favourites.
Coastal Colour Scheme
A coastal colour scheme is perfect for any wedding day, providing soft, gentle tones like creamy whites, baby blues and soft yellows to create a romantic and tranquil atmosphere. Coastal colour schemes are the perfect blend of both rustic & romantic. We believe that the coastal colour scheme is also the best possible colour scheme for an outdoor wedding. This is because it really captures the beauty of nature, with a palette of whites, creams and natural wooden elements. Imagine the gentle lapping of the sea in the background while your guests are surrounded and absorbed in your beach-themed celebrations: dreamy! A classic tropical palette can be achieved easily with these easy-to-achieve soft hues. You can always add pops of colour throughout your ceremony or florals if you would like to add some more colour back. Or opt to just keeping it simple with just one or two soft shades blended means that you don’t have to worry about competing visuals. From here you can enjoy breezy stress-free beauty on your big day. We love the florals and overall colour scheme of Tara & Brad’s wedding day.
Timeless White Colour Scheme
Modern couples are still choosing the classic and traditional white wedding palette and for good reason! This colour scheme will never go out of style, as it is fills the atmosphere with a sense of sophistication. White allows you to focus on the details like beautiful florals and timeless decor pieces. Opting for white flowers to decorate both the ceremony and reception venues is always an incredible way to celebrate your wedding day. This timeless colour combination provides a romantic atmosphere and usually means that champagne is added to the menu as well! Using only these two colours can be surprisingly versatile, allowing you to create different looks depending on their combinations – but whatever your style, you’re sure to look stunning in a classic white wedding.
Hot tip! If classic white is too plain for you, try spicing it up by adding shades of pink or light blue to help elevate the look! Linked here is one of our favourite timeless white weddings we’ve shot.
Tuscan Colour Scheme
Tuscan-inspired orange tinges and subtle greens make for a stunning wedding colour palette. Imagine delicate orange blooms tinged with tawny tints, surrounded by fluttering foliage of sage and forest hues. Together, the blend of Tuscan oranges and shades of green evoke the autumn air amidst blooming romance, making it perfect for any special day. We love the cozy feeling that a warm tuscan palette can bring to a wedding day, it can really make your guests feel at ease! Whether you opt for Earthy accents or a sunlit ceremony, this Tuscan orange colour palette retains an elegant rustic charm that no other combination can emulate –– making your wedding feel extra special.
Take into account which season you’re in
When it comes to picking colours for your wedding, you should always take into account which season you’re in; seasonal coastal hues add vibrancy and life during the summer months, while timeless white never goes out of style no matter the time of year.
In autumn it’s worth considering a Tuscan colour palette, particularly if you want those gorgeous orange leaf vibes! Whichever tones you go for be sure that the colour scheme ties in well with the mood and emotions you want to elicit from your guests on your special day too. In 2023 we hope to attend lots of incredibly seasonally inspired weddings, the time of year your wedding is held can really help you further inspire your colour palette.
