Adding color into your wedding palette can feel intimidating. White & blush weddings are the most popular for a reason – they are beautiful, serene, and classic. Lately, I’ve been seeing an uptick in colorful wedding palettes. I think some of this is because after COVID restrictions and postponements people are planning the weddings that they really want, not just what they have seen on Pinterest. If you’re a bride on the fence about how to incorporate color into your wedding, here are some ideas!
If you still want something understated, go for a neutral palette in beige, soft mauve, and ivory with a seasonal pop of color. For this winter wedding, we added a small amount of soft lavender, eggplant, jade, and grey to a soft palette for interest.
Love canary yellow & hot pink? Your florist will artfully combine those two colors, with mid tones/textures/and colors to make a cohesive palette.
For me, it is so important for flowers to feel appropriate for their place and time. I love florals that accent the venue, and feel true to the space. It is also very important to me as a designer to use locally sourced flowers as much as possible. Not only is it a better choice for the environment, but you’ll find your flowers to be fresher and more fragrant. Just as a tomato eaten in January isn’t nearly as delicious as an August grown fruit, March grown ranunculus have better form, color, and scent. Locally grown flowers will be different for each season and region, but here in Central & South Texas you can expect:
I believe that your favorite color palette will work for any season! So if you want deep, romantic jewel tones in spring, your florist and planner can bring that vision to life! Happy planning!
