Here are a few of our favourite ideas for wedding colour schemes this year…
After almost a whole year of uncertainty for all of our wedding couples, we can’t wait to get back to doing what we love most! Helping you to create the most magical, memorable day of your lives. It’s a difficult time for so many of us and we hope that planning your wedding day is giving you something positive to focus on during the (seemingly endless!) lockdown we find ourselves in again.
Often a starting point for your plans, your colour scheme is one of the most important choices for your day, it will drip down into every other decision you make from the invitations to the table decorations. It can often be difficult to know where to start! Maybe you’re more of a minimalist whilst your partner loves vibrant colours… that’s why we’ve had a look into some beautiful new trends emerging for wedding colour palettes this year.
This is a great way to do bold colours without feeling over the top! These rich tones compliment each other beautifully to give a regal and modern feel. The rust colour offers itself beautifully to any copper accessories you might want to incorporate too. The dark but bold colours can suit the colder months however the brightness of the teal could also suit a spring/summer wedding. A great choice if you’re wanting to make a statement.
A neutral colour palette has always been a popular choice when it comes to simple but elegant wedding styling. Now we’re expecting the darker brown trends we’ve seen in fashion over the winter become hot wedding colour scheme trends for 2021. A more modern take on the neutrals, this chocolatey, warm palette is a perfect way to do classy but contemporary.
Classic pastels in a modern way. Incorporating lavender into your bouquets and centre pieces is a perfect place to start to hop onto the lilac trend this year. Colourful without being ‘in-your-face’, lilac will also be ultra-flattering for your bridesmaids’ dresses! This is a lovely spring/summer wedding palette that will look beautiful in the sunshine on your big day. You could opt to go with the brighter pastel shades or a more muted light mauve tone, both equally beautiful and elegant.
A more modern twist on a natural colour palette, earthy greens like olive and sage are a great choice. They lend themselves perfectly to those who want to incorporate a lot of nature into their day. If you’re thinking of using eucalyptus or even ivy for your wedding flowers then this could be a great choice for your colour scheme. Sage gives a minimal look with just a hint of colour, while Olive Green may be a nice deeper, richer choice for the colder months.
After some dark days in 2020, we’re hoping 2021 will be brighter! A bright, spring-time yellow is a unique choice which is expected to be a huge 2021 trend. Pantone named their shade ‘Illuminating’ the colour of the year, a pale daffodil yellow. This is a stunning, eye-catching shade which will bring joy to your day. It may seem intimidating to use such a bright colour but paired with natural greens or creams this will bring a peaceful, sunshine feel to your day!
Of course, wedding days are all about you as a couple, so creating the exact feel that suits you with your wedding theme is the most important thing! Whether you’re a trendsetter or you don’t know where to start, we hope this small selection provides some inspiration. Here’s to 2021 and happy wedding planning!
