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 Summer 2013: Pretty in Pink!!

The saying “Pink is my signature color” is one of my all time favorite movie lines and will ring true with many brides in 2013!  For my ultra feminine brides, pink is the perfect shade for almost any occasion and a wedding is no exception. In 2013 pink will be back with a vengeance being paired with many different colors to create a fresh new approach to using pink!

I have listed my top five fresh wedding color combinations that incorporate pink!

Pink and Green! This color combination has been around for a long time and still remains classic and beautiful.  If you are considering pink and green try changing the tone of pink from a deep or hot pink to a soft blush pink.  Or try pairing pink with a mint or even a deep moss green for a unique look!

Pink and Gray!  A new modern approach to pink is to pair it with gray.  Blush pink and gray give a soft, romantic color palette.

Deep pink mixed with a eclectic gray linen gives a cool modern look and feel to any decor.

Pink and Yellow!  Some brides are afraid of yellow.  Not many girls can wear yellow against their skin tones and if you are not careful it can wash out your bridesmaids in pictures.  That is why pink is a softer and more versatile color for the girls to wear.  Just pair their dresses with yellow bouquets for the perfect combination of pink and yellow!

Shades of Pink! My favorite pink color palette is to combine different shades of pink.  You can pair light and pink flowers together or use light flowers for the ceremony and gradually increase the deepness throughout the cocktail hour and reception!!

What is your favorite pink color combination?
