The best colour palettes and floral arrangement ideas for your dream wedding
Wondering what flowers go best with your desired colour palette? Maybe you’re about to plan your wedding or want some inspiration on what decisions to make? The following ideas provide some tasteful combinations you can pick for your ceremony.
There’s no doubt that one of the most important features of your wedding is your colour palette. It sets the mood of the room but also needs to be chosen according to the season. You can benefit from harmonious balances of colour by incorporating neutral, understated tones with bolder ones.
Read on for some of the best colour combos according to season and location:
Spring – keep it natural
Aim for a bohemian and earthy colour palette. Shades like oatmeal, blush, sea blue, sage green, and chocolate brown draw from your natural environment. Think wildflower bouquets, with soft tones overall, and added pops of colour such as blue.
Summer – pretty in pink
This combo is perfect for seaside weddings. Think raspberry and strawberry shades, adding in dusty pink, light grey, or a fern green to balance them out. The palette is inspired by the flowers of bougainvillaea (which looks stunning as a wedding arch) and hibiscus.
Autumn/fall – berry tones
Cream tones go well with colours reminiscent of fruits such as currant and peach. Add shades that feel seasonal such as chocolate and olive. For floral arrangements, keep it rustic by adding in some natural elements such as berries or leaves. Make it stand out with flowers like astilbe, purple orchids and carnations.
Winter – regal ballroom affair
Feel like royalty by balancing out delicate shades of cream, blush, and taupe with gold tones such as biscotti. Don’t be afraid to contrast them with beautiful dark red roses or dahlias, also adding other decorations which are brick coloured.
