Wedding Colors 2013: Gold!

Gold is back to stay!  Over the past few years, the color gold was rarely used in weddings and silver was the accent color of choice.  In 2013, you will see a shift from silver to gold.  The trend this year is back to modern elegance with chandeliers, large blooming flowers and of course gold.  Gold pairs well with most colors and some of these color combinations are so chic and beautiful you may end up choosing gold for your wedding! Here are some of my favorite color combinations using gold.

The color of the year is emerald green and it is the perfect compliment to gold. These rich tones lend itself to an elegant, opulent and rich looking affair made for an evening wedding.

If you like emerald green but want a softer color palette for Spring/Summer try another on trend color, mint green.  I am in love with everything mint green and gold richens this color combination to give the right amount of contrast.

Another color that pairs well with gold is pink.  My favorite shade of pink with gold is a blush pink which is romantic and classic.

For a brighter color palette than pink, try coral and gold! Love!  For an extra layer of color you can even throw in a little mint green for a stunning Summer color combination.

Purple is an on trend color for 2013 and most brides think silver is the perfect compliment.  Try gold to switch up the look and deepen the color palette.

Of course you can always go for an all white wedding with gold accents.  So classic and chic!

Wedding Colors 2013: It’s “Mint” to Be

The color mint is sweeping the bridal scene for 2013! With the popularity of vintage fashion, mint has become a favorite among designers and brides. One of the reasons I love the color mint is that it coordinates perfectly with so many colors. You can pair mint with a soft or bold color to give a completely different look. It is a strong enough color to be used on its own, but not overpowering that you can’t use it with other bold colors.

One way to use mint is to use the color mint alone giving off a modern yet vintage look.

A great coordinating color for mint is peach especially if you enjoy a vintage wedding.

If you want to kick it up a notch try using coral instead of peach or a combination of both colors.

Another great color combination is mint and pink with touches of gold.

You can even add a splash of turquoise to deepen the color palette.

For a Spring or Summer wedding you can pair mint with yellow. This gives off a cheery, vibrant look and feel.

Winter is upon us, and one of my favorite color combinations is using mint and red. It is a beautiful, unique color palette for a Winter Wedding.
