Stand Out in Style with these 10 Unique Wedding Color Combos

February 17, 2010 at 4:01 pm 12 comments

With so many colors to choose from, it’s easy to see how a bride can get lost when she tries to taste the rainbow… but fear not, young padawans (Star Wars reference, anyone???… No?  Too nerdy??  I knew it)… As I was saying, fear not… for I, the incredibly enlightening Mrs. Dietz and my fashionista warriors at Marilyn’s Keepsakes have come up with some delightfully unique color schemes that will surely leave you inspired!

Below are 10 of today’s most unique color combos, as well as sample displays of each!  Enjoy!  (Photos Courtesy of Google Images.  Merged by yours truly using the power of Photoshop)

Magenta + Orange + Yellow

It’s a regular springtime sorbet buffet!  Inspired by the hottest hues on the color wheel, this ultra vibrant palette mixes fresh-ta-def attitude with energetic appeal.  It will surely have all your guests saying, “Ooh la la!”

Royal Blue + Silver + White

Being that blue is 2010’s hottest color trend; it’s no surprise that it makes it on our list in several spots.  Seen here with crisp whites and shimmering silvers, this regal blue and pewter palette is the perfect combination of clean lines and courtly appeal.

Lime Green + Lilac

The difference between “ordinary” and extraordinary” is that bit of “extra.”  While Kelly green and royal purple have been considered complementary colors forevs, it’s always nice to turn it up of notch.  By choosing more energetic shades of each, you’ll create a look nothing short of incredible!

Champagne Pink & Chocolate

Creating a layout that looks as delicious as it sounds, this combination of baby doll pinks and deep shades of brown will surely give you an endless amount of ideas.  From delectable favors to feminine frock, this is one wedding look that will easily stand the test of time!

Daffodil + Gray

It’s retro chic at its finest!  While yellow and gray may not seem like a bridal favorite, when you put them together, you’ll create a look that is as one of a kind as your love!  From friendly flowers to beautiful brooches, these are two gorgeous hues that will leave them breathless!

Teal Blue + Cherry Red

Talk about having the va-va-voom factor!  This color combination is a sexy saturation of the coolest blue and hottest red and will look ahhh to the mazing no matter what season we’re in!

Honeydew Green + Sweet Pea Pink

If little girls are made of sugar and spice and everything nice, then there’s no doubt in my mind they’ll delight in this super modish wedding palette.  Gorgeous for a spring or summer hooplah, this honeydew / sweet pea scheme has all the right shades to turn any wedding decor from drab to FAB!

Scarlet Red + Burnt Orange + Chocolate

*Fall* in loaf with a wedding color scheme that brings regal style and luxurious luminescence together.  Ideal for the autumnal bride in all of us, this rich palette of deep red, dark orange and chocolate brown has standing ovation written all over it!

Emerald Green + Sapphire Blue + Gold

Inspired by one of today’s hottest wedding resources – the peacock – this eclectic palette of jewel tones is perhaps the most regal on the list!  Because jewel-toned hues have an oversaturated look, sometimes brides may be intimidated by their powerful punch… but don’t be!  If you choose this scheme, you’ll delight in having a look that is absolutely RICH with style!

Dusty Rose + Cornflower Blue + Latte

Say it with me… Vin(tage)tastic!!!  Okay, so maybe it doesn’t quite roll off the tongue, but this color scheme is still one of the most drool worthy looks of today’s modern bride.  It’s takes the past and has it shake hands with the future, and there’s nothing wrong with that!

    I love the red, orange and chocolate – it looks stunning! OMG you are amazing. Just wondering about the picture in the centre with the berries and flowers in vases surrounded by wood…where would I be able to buy those? Many thanks, Sandy

      Hey Sandy! First of all, you’re ahhhmazing! Thanks for all the kinds words :) You may be happy to know that the centerpieces you’re referring to are DIY! If you go to your local craft supply store (ie. Hobby Lobby, Michael’s, JoAnn Fabrics, etc.), you can find all the supplies you’ll need to create them!

    Let’s just say you had me at HELLO with Magenta + Orange + Yellow, then you grabbed my attention even more and I almost fell off my chair when I got to Lime Green + Lilac (MY FUTURE WEDDING COLORS….LOOOOOVE IT!!) I really like the idea of you going to the moon and back by putting together a collection of pictures for each color combination, it really helps the bride to picture her very own day!!!! KUDOS TO YOU MARY!!! AWESOME JOB!!! You amaze me with each and every post! I might just fall out of my chair next time :P
