Wedding Colors 2013: Poppy Red!

Choosing your wedding colors can be tricky so it’s nice to have a little inspiration and advice on which colors are hot for the upcoming season.  Every year, Pantone Color Report comes out with the top ten colors for Spring and in 2013 two shades of blue are the top choices.

One of the colors that stood out to me is Poppy Red.   For the most part, the top ten colors are very conservative. Poppy Red is not too bold or bright making it a perfect choice for a Spring wedding.

One of the great things about Poppy Red is that it looks fabulous by itself.  There are not many colors that can stand alone but Poppy Red is one of them.  Look how striking and classically beautiful this color looks with a staple color like cream or black?

It also makes a great compliment to many other colors.  In fact, many colors on Pantone’s top ten list can be paired with Poppy Red.  The #1 color is Monaco Blue and this color is a great compliment with Poppy Red.

Also, look at pairing Poppy Red with Lemon Zest or African Violet.  Depending on the color you choose will totally change the look of the wedding.

One of my favorite color combination with Poppy Red is to pair it with Mint.  The mint and the poppy red is modern and has a wonderful vintage feel.
