September 15, 2022

Spring weddings are an excellent way to celebrate the arrival of warmer weather, beautiful blooms, and a new last name! With so many vibrant color options available, couples can easily create a stunning look for their special day that reflects their personal style and taste. Whether you choose soft pastel shades, bold and bright hues, or something in between, there are endless options for your perfect color palette for your spring nuptials. From traditional florals to unexpected combinations, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite colors and palettes that are sure to provide plenty of inspiration for your 2023 or 2024 wedding.

Soft Pastel Wedding Color Palettes

Soft pastel wedding color palettes are a timeless choice for spring weddings, offering a romantic and elegant look that is perfect for the season. These delicate hues, such as blush pink, pale blue, mint green, and lavender, are reminiscent of blooming flowers and create a serene, tranquil, and fresh atmosphere. These colors work beautifully with a variety of wedding styles, from traditional to modern, and can be easily incorporated into various wedding elements such as flowers, bridesmaid dresses, table settings, invitations, and beyond! Overall, a soft pastel wedding color palette is a classic and gorgeous option that will never go out of style.

We fully anticipate this color palette trend to stick around weddings in 2023, weddings in 2024, and beyond!

Bright and Bold Wedding Color Palettes

For couples who want to add a pop of energy and excitement to their spring wedding, a bright and bold color palette is a perfect choice! These vivid colors, such as coral, fuchsia, turquoise, and yellow, can create a festive and playful atmosphere that will exude cheerful and upbeat energy for you and your guests. We love a bold color palette for an outdoor wedding, as bright colors both complement and pop in natural surroundings, and create a sense of fun and adventure.

When selecting a bright and bold color palette for your wedding day, it's key to balance the beautiful vivid colors with some neutral or subdued elements. For example, a statement yellow wedding dress may be overwhelming on its own, but paired with white or cream bridesmaid dresses and simple floral arrangements, it can create a cohesive and truly stunning look. Similarly, using bright colors in small doses, such as in the groom's tie or in the centerpieces, can create a playful and exciting vibe without overwhelming you and your guests!

Bright and bold color palettes are the biggest trend in 2023 so far and we are absolutely loving it. These playful palettes add a touch of whimsy and joy to weddings year round and are sure to be one of the many reasons why your wedding day will be the best day to remember.

Fall 2023 Bold Wedding Color Palettes

Bold color palettes are a great way to make a statement and create a cozy atmosphere for fall weddings in 2023! Rich colors like burgundy, navy blue, emerald green, and burnt orange are truly perfect for autumn nuptials. These vibrant hues are inspired by the changing colors of the leaves and create a warm and inviting atmosphere for the wedding celebration. Metallic accents like gold or copper can also add a touch of glamor and sophistication to a bold and rich autumnal color palette.

Neutral Color Palette for Weddings

Neutral color palettes are a sophisticated and elegant option for spring weddings in 2023, 2024, and beyond! These understated hues, such as ivory, beige, and taupe, create a timeless and classic look that can be easily paired with any accent color. While this dreamy color palette is truly suited for weddings of all types, they are particularly suitable for couples looking for a minimalist and chic wedding style! Color palettes such as this create the most gorgeous, clean, and sophisticated atmosphere on your wedding day. As you reflect on your wedding album in the years to come, you'll forever be in love with your neutral wedding color palette.

To make a neutral color palette truly shine, pay close attention to the texture and materials of the wedding decorative elements! For example, a white silk wedding dress paired with ivory lace bridesmaid dresses and ivory linen tablecloths can create a stunning monochromatic look. On the flip side, incorporating different textures, such as velvet, lace, and satin, can add depth and dimension to a neutral color palette! If you're looking to add a pop while sticking close to your neutral palette, try adding metallic gold accents to add a touch of glamor to your natural wedding color scheme!

We fully anticipate neutral wedding color palettes to thrive in 2023 spring weddings and continue to be a popular choice for future brides. This color palette is truly timeless and is sure to not "date" your wedding day. By following heavy trends, you do run the chance of somewhat dating your wedding photos in the years to come. A prime example of a dated trend would be the puffy wedding dress sleeves from the 80's! (Confession, we love reflecting on 80’s wedding albums!)

2023 & 2024 Wedding Color Palettes

The trend of bold, vibrant color palettes is a stunning way to make a statement and bring extra joy to weddings in 2023. Rich and warm autumnal hues such as burgundy, navy blue, emerald green, and burnt orange are perfect for nuptials this fall, while bright and cheerful shades can add a touch of fun and playfulness to 2023 summer weddings. On the other hand, neutral color palettes are a timeless choice for spring weddings in 2023 and beyond! These subtle hues such as ivory, beige, and taupe create an elegant atmosphere for your special day. Whether you decide to go big or stick with a classic look, there is no doubt that you'll have a stunning wedding day that is sure to be remembered for years to come!
