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?

Happy Planning!

Summer Wedding Colors: Yellow!

Yellow is the new favorite color for summer weddings.  Yellow is such a happy color and what couldn’t be a more happy occasion than a wedding?  Yellow is great by itself but also a wonderful complimentary color.  Pair it with almost any other color in the color spectrum and you have the perfect wedding colors  for summer.  I have listed some of the hottest color combinations that include yellow for summer 2012.

Yellow and teal is one of the newest pairings and it so surprisingly beautiful together.  It reminds me of a nautical themed wedding but with a new modern twist by using teal instead of navy.

Another beautiful color combination is yellow and gray.  Using gray and yellow as your wedding colors gives off a modern and sophisticated feel. Many brides only want to use yellow for an afternoon wedding but pairing it with gray is a perfect color pairing for an evening wedding as well as an afternoon wedding.

If you like yellow and gray for an evening wedding, you may love yellow and black.   Done correctly black at a wedding will always give a formal feel but pairing it with yellow softens the black and gives it a lighter summer feel.  If you decide to use yellow and black I would suggest pairing it with a patterned black damask or print to give it some texture and depth.

I can not forget to include yellow and green. This is such a classic pairing and is a beautiful match for an outside wedding.  Using yellow and green will give off a very organic and earthy feel to the event. Using fruit like lemons and limes to decorate your guest tables is also a great way to save a little money on centerpieces…especially if you create the centerpieces yourself!

I hope you have like all the yellow inspired weddings!  Are you having a yellow wedding?  We would love to hear what you think of these color combinations!

Happy Planning!
