BLENDED WEDDING STYLES BY COLOR
In reality, a wedding style is often not totally pure and precise. As you plan the must-have elements for your own ceremony and reception, it’s likely that you will end up with a “blended style.” No worries! Such combinations can be quite lovely, as the following examples show – along with the color palette we used to bring each pairing to life!

Color option: Blue + Purple
Color option: Gray + Pink
Color option: Taupe
Color option: Shades of blue
Color option: Red + Peach
SEASONAL WEDDING STYLES BY COLOR
Aside from blended styles for weddings, there is also the factor of the season to consider. And most often, this is where color choice is influenced by what time of year your wedding will be held. You can go with the typical hues for the season, or pull a surprise and opt for an unexpected color palette! We illustrate both color approaches in the examples that follow.
SPRING WEDDING STYLE BY COLOR COMBINATIONS
Fresh, new, flower-filled – that’s the vibe you want to capture for a spring wedding. So the colors that are springtime favorites tend to be floral-inspired, like pink, violet, and yellow, complemented by the lush green of new leaves.
Color option 1: Violet (Pantone Color for 2018)
Color option 2: Pink + Green
SUMMER WEDDING STYLE BY COLOR COMBINATIONS
For a wedding held during the balmy days of summer, there are fabulous color combos to choose from. There are those inspired by the exotic foliage and brilliant blooms of the tropics, by the sun, sand, and waves, or by refreshing sorbets and pastel sweets.
Color option 1: Berries and Dusty Blue
Color option 2: Aqua and Yellow
FALL WEDDING STYLE BY COLOR COMBINATIONS
Hugely popular for weddings is the glorious season of fall. The rich colors and textures of nature at this time lend themselves to styling a stunningly beautiful setting with a warm, cozy ambiance. The hues of jewels, wines, and metals also add depth and drama.
Color option 1: Purple, Magenta, Royal Blue
Color option 2: Marsala and Teal

WINTER WEDDING STYLE BY COLOR COMBINATIONS
This season has so many style pluses going for it. Winter wedding colors can capture the magic of a snow-covered landscape, the festiveness of the holidays, the scrumptiousness of Christmas treats, and the splendor of a starry winter night. Take your pick!

Color option 2: Midnight Blue + Gold
WEDDING STYLES WITH MONOCHROMATIC COLORS
Finally, there is the striking effect of a single-color setting for a wedding. Everything looks unified, polished, and chosen with care. But don’t mistake a monochromatic palette as being boring. Depending on which single color you decide on, the result can be sophisticated, bold, muted, charming, vibrant, and so much more!
We hope that, by showcasing actual wedding styles and color options from our own sets, we’ve sparked your excitement for making that all-important choice for the most treasured occasion of your lives!
