10 Terracotta Wedding Color Palette Combinations
Here at Koyal Wholesale, we have fallen head over heels for terracotta weddings! We’ve talked about our favorite terracotta décor ideas, and we have even talked about our favorite terracotta color combinations before, but we feel like we have only scratched the surface.
There are a lot of colors we see paired with terracotta, but the same colors seem to come up in the same ways all the time. We’re tired of looking at terracotta color palettes that all look the same!
So, what other colors go with a terracotta wedding? Let’s get a little more creative with some color combinations you may not have considered.
Table Setting With Metallic Details: Elegant Wedding Invites, Bride Laughing With Bridesmaids Wearing Glittering Gold Dresses: Whimsical Wonderland Weddings, Metallics Color Palette: Pantone
A terracotta and copper wedding can be beautiful, but we encourage you to go beyond copper and include many different kinds of metallics when creating your color palette.
Incorporate gold, rose gold, and brass throughout your décor with gold silverware, rose gold charger plates, and brass taper candles, but you should also think outside the box. Consider dressing your bridesmaids in metallic dresses or incorporate gold leaf and glitter into your décor.
Bouquet Featuring Shades of Mustard Yellow, Burnt Orange, and Terracotta: Green Wedding Shoes, Table Setting With Burnt Orange Flowers Featuring Glossy Terracotta Details: Confetti Daydreams, Burnt Orange, Mustard, and Brown Color Palette: Pantone
Burnt Orange, Mustard, and Brown
Burnt orange is a popular terracotta wedding color. So is mustard, but we feel like you can create a dynamic and interesting color palette if you incorporate both, while throwing in some brown to ground these colors.
Because these colors can be strong, you should consider incorporating terracotta in the pots and vases that line the aisle at your ceremony and cover the tables at your reception. Leave the burnt orange, mustard, and brown to general elements, like fabric, ribbons, and flowers.
Geometric Rug in Shades of Blush, Mauve, and Terracotta: Rosemary and Finch, Small Reception Table With Blush, Mauve, and Terracotta: Wild Calligraphy, Blush and Mauve Color Palette: Pantone
Blush and Mauve
Blush and mauve are also among the top terracotta wedding ideas, but you don’t always see them combined together with terracotta details. We want to see more of this color combination!
You can set the tone by choosing terracotta details carefully. Old, worn terracotta vases can create a dusty look, while traditional terracotta pots can brighten things up. This combination is especially stunning when you incorporate terracotta colors in table linens and flowers.
Bride Carrying a Cascading Fern Bouquet: Martha Stewart, Green Floral Arrangement Among Terracotta Pots: Stay Gold Event Rentals, Rainbow of Green Color Palette: Pantone
Rainbow of Green
Sage and terracotta wedding colors are popular, but why stop at sage? If you’re in search of a down-to-earth design for your wedding, the earthy color palette of greens and terracotta is the perfect choice.
Tropical weddings can feature large monstera leaves, forest weddings can incorporate hanging tendrils of greenery, and boho weddings can incorporate dried palm fronds among terracotta ribbons, vases, and flowers.
Groom in a Gray Suit With Groomsmen in Leather Suspenders: Revelry, Cream, Tan, and Gray Color Palette: Pantone, Cream-Colored Cake With Gray and Terracotta Details: Deer Pearl Flowers
Cream, Tan, and Gray
Neutrals are popular, especially among boho weddings. We think incorporating gray with traditional neutrals and terracotta wedding colors is beautiful! It gives your groomsmen the chance to wear gray suits, which are always popular, but it can also make this color palette a little more industrial if you use concrete décor, or you can go more rustic, if you use zinc vases.
Bride and Groom Embracing With a Bouquet of Terracotta and Burgundy Flowers: Ruffled Blog, Blue-Gray Cake Dripping In Colorful Fruit: Fab Mood, Blue-Gray and Burgundy Color Palette: Pantone
Blue-Gray and Burgundy
Blue and burgundy are popular wedding colors. Adding terracotta hues is a great way to freshen up this color palette.
Find ways to incorporate these colors as organically as possible for a more natural wedding décor look. For example, decorate the cake with berries instead of ribbon and incorporate broken terracotta pieces into your decorations instead of using terracotta-colored fabric.
Teal and Terracotta Floral Table Garland: Kitty Wheeler Shaw, Table Decorated With Terracotta Pots and Black Tableware: Studio Oscar Lea, Teal and Black Color Palette: Pantone
Teal and Black
Terracotta isn’t just for boho weddings. If you love the idea of a terracotta wedding color scheme, but you have your heart set on a more formal affair, consider pairing this hue with teal and black.
The trick is to avoid using true teal, as it can make weddings look like they came from the dollar store. Instead, choose deep, rich hues, or let them lean towards the lighter end of the spectrum. Dress everyone in black and your wedding will feel like a black tie affair without too much pomp.
90’s Brights Color Palette: Pantone, Colorful Table Setting With Fruit and Iced Cookies: Rock My Wedding, Outdoor Reception Table With Terracotta Pots and Bright Flowers: Glamour and Grace
Brights from the 90’s are making a real comeback as brides look back fondly to the Lisa Frank designs of their childhood. Think bubblegum pink, canary yellow, and fuchsia. It’s also the perfect opportunity to incorporate Pantone’s 2022 color of the year.
This terracotta wedding color palette also lends itself well to cultural celebrations. Think cheerful Italian villas where terracotta vases pop against old stone and worn wood, as well as colorful Mexican callejoneadas that parade you from your ceremony to your reception on cobblestone streets.
Dusty Blue and Terracotta Stationary and Details: Inspired by This, Bride Holding a Bouquet of Dusty Blue and Coral-Colored Flowers: Hill City Bride, Dusty Blue, Coral, and Silver Color Palette: Pantone
Dusty Blue, Coral, and Silver
Pairing the expected with the unexpected is one of the best ways to make a terracotta wedding theme come alive. For example, dusty blue is a popular color to pair with terracotta, while coral is an unexpected hue. Silver can really make this color palette sparkle.
This color palette looks beautiful on the beach, but because terracotta hues ground this color combination, it can be brought further inland, making it perfect for garden and farm weddings too.
Sunset Pink Tablescape With Terracotta Details: Floressence Flowers, Bride and Groom Walking into the Sunset: Karen Willis Holmes, Sunset Colors Color Palette: Pantone
If your idea of the perfect nuptials takes place at sunset when the sky turns from blue to lavender to baby pink, the sunset color combination is perfect for your terracotta wedding.
The beauty of this color combination is the fact that you can choose to feature your favorite colors. If you love purple, choose a crushed velvet table runner in lavender. If you're into pink, try blush pink mismatched votive candle holders. Combine the colors and use iridescent charger plates to bring it all together.
