What a lovely balance: the luscious golden yellow of Freesia blooms paired with the muted greys of a dove (Paloma)! This color tandem has been trending for a while now, and we can certainly see why. Just look how it brings instant sunny cheer to the entire bridal entourage (1), contrasts ruffly florals and preppy argyle in a wedding cake (2), combines rich yellow blooms with soft dusty miller leaves in a charming bouquet (3), and plays around with trendy patterns for a fun escort card display (4)!

Dazzling Blue and Cayenne Color Palette

Looking to ‘spice up’ the normally sweet spring air? Then, do consider blending Dazzling Blue with a dash of hot Cayenne! We love how this color duo makes a bold statement on this mod-romantic table setting (1), a pair of vintage-style blue suede shoes (2) paired with a sizzling ruffled wedding dress (3), and an eye-catching set up for escort cards. This beautiful cobalt blue and coral combo would certainly be great for a summer wedding by the beach!

This palette of minty green and pinkish purple hues has us absolutely smitten by its air of Old World romance! Imagine the lushness of Radiant Orchid set against the serene softness of Hemlock. The effect is captivating, as shown by these boutonnieres made with succulents (1), wedding wish cards for the couple (2), and a dreamy vintage bridal gown (3) to be paired with wedding pumps with flouncy bows (4)!

Violet Tulip and Celosia Orange Palette

Another delightfully unexpected color match-up: refined, romantic Violet Tulip and vibrant Celosia Orange (from the showy flower by that name)! See what a chic and stylish surprise this brings to pom pom-style floral arrangements (1), a wildflower-trimmed wedding cake (2), fab bridesmaids’ accessories like these teardrop chandelier earrings (3), and fun decorative touches like these ‘love letters’ that would make pretty cake toppers (4)!

What a showcase, wouldn’t you say? We’re finding it next to impossible to choose a favorite among these gorgeous spring wedding palettes! Which one has won your heart?


  1. Love the first two boards–very dramatic!

  2. would a coral and aqua color combo look nice?

  3. Rachel - bride 2014 summer

    I am going with cobalt blue and yellow with bridesmaids wearing all blue dresses. Just worried blue might be too strong in the pictures. Any thoughts?

  4. Hello Helen. Coral and aqua are a gorgeous combo. Adding tones of peach with pretty flowers like roses, dahlias, and daisies would be beautiful. The bridesmaids can wear either aqua or peach! Apply aqua in the table decor as accent colors!

    Hi Rachel. You may be right! Cobalt blue may come as too strong so choosing yellow may be a better option. Consider light shades of yellow or even yellow bridesmaid dresses with a blue sash!
