We welcome our newest guest blogger, Samantha Morris, with some of the latest trends for wedding colours for 2018.
Trends this wedding season are embracing the inspiration of spring. From shades of crisp green to florals that are freshly picked, if you’re attending a wedding this season (or planning one!) expect to see vibrant and muted color combinations. From colors that are endearing and captivating to others that are sophisticated and rustic, let these nature-inspired colors spring you into the wedding season.
Blush and Grey
Inviting and enchanted, blush is the perfect pastel for a spring wedding. Blush is the new red this wedding season and a great choice for conveying a feeling that is romantic and awakening. To pair with this pastel, think of a more muted and casual color, like grey. Relaxed but polished, grey is a stunning wedding attire color. Any of these blush colored bridesmaid dresses would pair lovely with a grey (or any color!) wedding suit rental from The Black Tux. Let your guests enjoy the romantic and casual atmosphere of your special day with this chic but relaxed color combination.
Slate and Moss
This spring wedding season, expect to see themes and colors that have an appearance that is rustic. Pairing with this rustic charm, we suggest touches and details that are sophisticated. Elizabeth Anne Designs suggests if you are looking for elegant and rustic wedding ideas think about incorporating details into attire, venue decor and guest favors that are small but standout. To bring this wedding theme to life, think about using the color combination slate and moss. The classic look of a black tuxedo on a wedding day will forever be timeless. But if you are looking for a twist on this elegant look, try the color slate. Slate is a great shade of grey that is sharp and crisp, making it a perfect choice for groomsmen attire. Moss’s deep and rich color has a look that is weathered and modern. Think of using moss-colored florals that are simple and eclectic. Rustic and charming but elegant and sophisticated, together this wedding combination sets a tone that is romantic and captivating.\
Lilac and Green
Let your wedding florals add the pop of color to your wedding. Muted greens will come to life when you incorporate soft and subtle colors like lilac. Fresh and effortless, lilac and green are a color combination that sparks spring’s feeling of new beginnings.
Lilac or green would look beautiful as a bridesmaid dress color, or blended in floral bouquets. For groomsmen, think about using these colors in bow ties, vests or in one of these fun and colorful groomsmen sock options from Bold Socks. Subtle but lively, lilac and green are a spring wedding color combination that will inspire the promise of your new beginning.
The wedding season is embracing ultraviolet, the Pantone Color of the Year, in both bold and subtle ways. A color described as complex and contemplative, ultraviolet is vivacious and stimulating. For a wedding, think about how prominiate you would like this color to be. Would you prefer to use this color in more minute ways, such as the small details of florals, invitation stationary or reception table decor? Or if you were thinking more boldly, think of using this color in wedding party attire and more prominent venue decor. Limitless and imaginative, ultraviolet has endless possibilities for inspiring the atmosphere of your wedding.
