If you are trying to decide on a color palette for your spring wedding in 2012, make sure to check out the Pantone Fashion Color Report. Look at mixing and matching these colors to pick your favorite combination.
The new trend is to take a neon color and mix with a pastel color. Pantone also suggests combining this with a more neutral color like Driftwood, or Starfish, to complete your perfect color combination.
Pantone Fashion Color Report Spring 2012
In 2011 many brides were incorporating one of my favorite colors in to their wedding….purple! I love the idea of picking a bold color like Cockatoo to compliment Sweet Lilac. It gives a great contrast and new color combination for 2012!
Or if you want to be bold mix Cockatoo with Tangerine Tango…almost makes you feel like you are at the beach enjoying the sunset!
Another favorite is the Sodalite Blue and Solar Power….classic color combination with a twist!
For all the brides that love pink try Caberet and Granita to give a soft romantic feel to your wedding….I think it’s just the right amount of pink!
I hope these color combinations have helped in your search for the perfect wedding colors for you! We would love to hear what new color combinations you have chosen!

If you are having (or thinking of having) a winter wedding in 2012, choosing wedding colors may be a hard decision. There is no rule that your wedding colors must be red and green to have a winter wedding. There are some really beautiful color schemes for winter that may surprise you.
One of my favorite color schemes is a simple all white/ivory wedding with hints of color to pull everything together. An all white or ivory wedding can make a big statement and I love the idea of using a light blue or pink to highlight everything. You can use branches, pinecones, and ornaments (which can double as favors) as accents in your décor.
If you are a girl that loves bling then a winter wedding might be perfect for you! Crystals and gems highlighted against a white or ivory backdrop is stunning.
Another untraditional color scheme for a winter wedding is teal, brown and silver. Using all white flowers give a modern winter feeling.
Of course you can’t go wrong with using burgundy or red but that doesn’t mean your décor has to scream Christmas. Small touches of red go long way and some brides are adding black for a modern, yet romantic feel. You can even add an aqua blue color to spice it up!
Just a tip… if you are planning a 2012 winter wedding wait until January to stock up on all of the leftover Christmas decorations. It is inexpensive and if you are crafty you have plenty of time to create some wonderful centerpieces to give you a perfect Winter Wedding!
