Perfect Palette: Color-Coordinating Details in Varying Shades
by Brides of Oklahoma February 4
Looking for just the right shade to set the tone for your wedding day? Find your signature color among these ideas for the perfect palette! From cool blues and whites to whimsical lilac and plum, or warm terra cotta and fuchsia – these six shades can be carried throughout your wedding day in a myriad of ways. We love that these shades don’t necessarily have to be overpowering. Let them take the reins in subtle ways to make your wedding details POP!
Although plum is traditionally a fall and winter shade, don’t be afraid to use it in other seasons as it pairs beautifully with both neutrals and complementing hues alike. Not to mention, plum and gold (or rose gold) is a match made in heaven! Sophisticated and bold, this hue makes quite a statement!
Crisp, soft and sultry all at the same time, we can hardly think of a shade more classic and awe-inspiring than a timeless winter white. When you take white beyond just the dress, it can transform the entire feel of a wedding day. Pair with simple greenery and a warmer ivory to bring dimension – you won’t be disappointed with this stunning neutral!
Step out of the box and embrace an incredible earthy tone with terra cotta. As you can see, terra cotta is a hue that can breathe life into any scene whether you go darker or lighter. The perfect choice for a boho bride, terra cotta is one of our absolute favorite tones to see!
It doesn’t get much punchier than a fun, cheerful fuchsia hue. Don’t be scared of going BOLD with this shade, as it pairs beautifully with lighter, warmer hues like ivory, peach and even a soft green. One way we love to see fuchsia incorporated? A pretty pink pout, of course!
Soothing and serene, lilac is an often-overlooked shade but when it’s used throughout different wedding vignettes – wow! What a stunner. From lilac hues in a makeup palette to of course, florals and cake, lilac is the perfect unexpected springtime shade for a whimsical, classy affair.
Out of the Blue
Something borrowed, something blue – oh, how we love this hue! We’re fairly certain blue can do no wrong, especially in this more unique lighter azure shade that reminds us of a cloudless afternoon sky or tropical ocean waters. Take it from winter to spring to summer – you’ll find endless uses for the prettiest blue, and we think you’ll end up in love!
