2023 Spring Wedding Color Combinations
The wedding color ideas you have for your big day may look good in your imagination, but they don’t always look good in real life. Or, you may think you need to avoid a certain color because it will look dated, when in reality, you just need to see it done right.
It could also be the case that you don’t have any color ideas at all!
No matter why you’re struggling to find the perfect wedding color palettes, we can help.
Here are our favorite 2023 spring wedding color combinations that will inspire you to choose the right colors for your wedding day.
Rose-Colored Cocktails With Sprigs of Grape Hyacinth: The Perfect Palette, Place Setting With a Light Blue Plate and Desert Rose Colored Floral Arrangement: Magnolia Rouge, Blushing Blue Color Palette: Pantone Connect
Desert rose is a lovely color for a spring wedding. When paired with blush and airy shades of blue, you get a romantic color palette that’s perfect for an English garden or country estate wedding.
Abundant florals really make this color palette come alive. Cover a wedding arch in pink roses, use irises in floral arrangements, and find unique ways to incorporate blooms. For example, you could place sprigs of grape hyacinth in cocktails or cover a wedding cake with pink and blue pansies.
Blue on Blue
Many brides and grooms love navy, but its dark hue can make it difficult to incorporate it into a spring wedding. Combining navy with another popular hue—Very Peri—along with even lighter shades of this tranquil color can provide you with the perfect spring-appropriate palette.
Incorporating different textures ensures an all-blue palette doesn’t fall flat. Think flowing chiffon draped from the ceremony arch and soft velvet table runners. You can even incorporate denim at a rustic wedding!
Champagne-Colored Wedding Stationery Displayed With Deep Golden Flowers: Style Me Pretty, Bride Holding a Bouquet of Yellow and White Flowers: From Britain With Love, Goldenrod Color Palette: Pantone Connect
Yellow is one of the best spring wedding colors, especially if you choose more dynamic shades of this vibrant hue and pair them with soft shades of champagne.
Yellow flowers, like tulips and irises, keep things cheerful, while garden spray roses with warm yellow centers mellow out your color palette. Things like rattan lanterns and pampas grass look lovely with the goldenrod color palette too.
All green weddings are rising in popularity. In 2023, we want to see weddings with a fresh take on the concept by going retro!
Plenty of leafy greens are a must with this 2023 wedding color palette, but you should incorporate green in other ways too. Set tables with green hobnail goblets and hang neon signs. A Palm Springs fête is the perfect setting for monstera tropical leaf charger plates, while limes and avocado are fun for a Mexican-inspired celebration.
Neutrals have been popular at weddings for a very long time. Timeless brides often turn to all-white color palettes, but in 2023, we want you to go neutral. And not just cream, ivory, and beige either.
Darker shades of brown are finding their way into wedding celebrations. When it comes to spring wedding colors, you’ll want to keep at least half of your color palette light and airy, but the other half can be filled with deeper shades of brown. Think mahogany suits, mango wood pillar candle holders, and chocolate desserts.
Faded Terracotta Candlesticks and a Unique Vessel for Dried Flowers: 100 Layer Cake, Cocktail Bar on Wheels Decorated With Balloons and Wicker Seating: Love Her Madly Weddings, Washed Out Terracotta Color Palette: Pantone Connect
Washed Out Terracotta
Terracotta has been a staple among wedding color palettes for a few years. If you love the idea of incorporating terracotta, but aren’t sure how to make it work for spring, look for lighter, more washed out shades of clay.
Terracotta vases and candle holders are a great place to start. Whitewashed terracotta pots filled with plants make great decorations that can double as favors. Keep the boho look going with hoop floral arrangements for your bridesmaids and hyacinth placemats at your reception.
Two Tier Wedding Cake Decorated With Slices of Citrus Fruit: The Southern California Bride, Bride Holding a Bouquet of Yellow, Orange, and Magenta Flowers: The Big Fat Indian Wedding, Orange and Lemon Color Palette: Pantone Connect
Viva Magenta, Orange, and Lemon
If you’re looking for wedding color help that goes beyond shades of brown, brighten things up with Pantone’s 2023 color of the year—Viva Magenta! When combined with orange and lemon, you get a cheerful color palette that’s perfect for a spring wedding.
Decorating with actual oranges and lemons can give your ceremony and reception an organic feel, while incorporating darker shades of red helps keep the color palette grounded.
Table Décor With Bright Pink Flowers and Decorative Orange Candle Holders: Wedding Forward, Bride Holding a Bouquet of Bright Pink Flowers Wearing a Pink Veil: Thursd, Vibrant Peachy Pinks Color Palette: Pantone Connect
Vibrant Peachy Pinks
Another color palette that’s perfect for brave, colorful couples is a combination of vibrant shades of peach and pink. It’s a take on the Barbiecore trend that’s all the rage in 2023, but it shies away from bubblegum pink and instead leans into the most vibrant shades of fuchsia.
This wedding color combination really comes alive when you aren’t afraid to play with fashion and décor. Daring grooms and groomsmen can wear hot pink suits, shirts, or ties, while brides might want to try a mini dress with go go boots and a pink veil.
Lavender and Mauve
Purple can be lovely in spring wedding color palettes. The trick is to avoid deep or overly vibrant shades of plum in favor of lighter, dustier shades of lavender and mauve.
Incorporate lavender into floral arrangements or into desserts and drinks. Mauve backdrop curtains can dress up a ceremony or reception space, while decorating with wisteria, water fountains, and a Rococo-style wedding cake can give your celebration Bridgerton vibes.
The Understated Rainbow
More brides and grooms than ever before are welcoming color into their wedding day palettes. And it doesn’t mean you have to go for a full, vibrant rainbow either. When it comes to spring wedding colors, you should use a combination of more understated shades.
Think purply reds, burnt orange, and dusty blues that almost look gray. Your bridesmaids would love the ability to choose a dress in the shade they like the best, but brides and grooms also appreciate the flexibility to choose flowers, linens, and other décor without worrying about whether or not it matches perfectly.
