When combined with other colors, you can create some gorgeous décor for nearly any kind of wedding, any time of the year!
Here are some of our favorite terracotta wedding colors, as well as terracotta wedding décor ideas that are perfect for spring garden weddings, summer beach weddings, and everything in between.
Terracotta and Mauve Table Setting: Ruffled Blog
If you’re going for a trendy terracotta wedding theme, try pairing this earthy tone with shades of mauve. Many desert brides love this combination, but when combined with other natural elements, it can be quite beautiful at a forest wedding too.
Put hyacinth placements on reception tables among mauve-colored flowers, have your bridesmaids wear different shades of mauve, and include this shade on your invites.
Copper Table Setting: Rosemary and Finch
Terracotta wedding colors combined with burnt orange is perfect for a fall wedding, whether your wedding is indoors or out. Incorporate pumpkins if you’re going for a fall festival vibe, while metal tealight candle holders and accessories in copper and brass strewn among terracotta pots can decorate a late summer or early winter wedding.
Rusty Barn Reception Table: Junebug Weddings
Rust is also a natural color to pair with terracotta. It works well with burnt orange and mauve as well, if you want to create a more diverse wedding color palette.
Rust and hues of terracotta are perfect for rustic barn weddings, especially if you take the term ‘rust’ literally. Terracotta wedding décor with rust can include place settings with rusty-looking napkin rings, old rusty containers to hold flowers in centerpieces, and rusty barns, windows, and anything else you can get your hands on that will make this color combo come to life.
Bride Walking in the Desert in a Mustard Yellow Dress: Green Wedding Shoes
If you want to inject a little bit of color into your terracotta wedding décor without going overboard, consider mustard. It’s an especially good hue to choose at the end of summer, as greenery often turns this shade in the heat before the leaves change in the fall.
Do something a little different and incorporate mustard yellow glasses at place settings, include spider mums in your bouquet, and gift spicy brown mustard to guests as wedding favors. You could even wear a mustard yellow wedding dress!
Floral Arrangement in Terracotta and Dusty Blue: Wedding Chicks
Terracotta wedding colors often look a little heavy and they are definitely earthy. If you want to lighten things up for a spring wedding, or you’re hoping to incorporate classic details with trendy ideas, try dusty blue.
Dusty blue can be incorporated with gauzy table runners, taper candles can adorn the ceremony space in shades of light blue, and groomsmen are sure to look dapper in blue bow ties.
Wedding Reception Table Featuring Terracotta and Sage Green: Pretty Little Vintage Co.
If you like the natural look of terracotta wedding décor, but want more than just shades of brown at your wedding, consider sage green.
It’s easiest to incorporate sage green by using the right kind of greenery. Think lambs ears, sage, and eucalyptus. It can be incorporated in bouquets, spread along reception tables, hung from the ceremony arch, and little potted plants can be handed out as favors.
Terracotta and Blush Floral Arrangement with Anthurium: Style Me Pretty
If you want a slightly feminine look at your wedding without going overboard, or if you’re planning a garden party or a beach wedding, blush might be the best choice to add to your terracotta wedding colors.
Blush is a classic wedding color. Use roses in this hue in your bouquet, choose a wedding dress with blush undertones, or try incorporating anthurium at a beach wedding.
Cream and Terracotta Arch Featuring Pampas Grass: Elegant Wedding Invites
Keep things classic with cream! This color plays well with any other, so it’s no surprise that it looks beautiful when paired with terracotta, especially if you use shades of cream and off-white in different hues.
It’s a great choice if you’re planning a boho wedding with terracotta wedding colors. Incorporate pampas grass, dried flowers, and macrame with potted plants to get the bohemian look you’re going for.
Bride Wearing a Dried Flower Crown: Rock My Wedding
Want to choose more than just one other hue to go with your terracotta theme? Try pairing it with desert neutrals!
Desert neutrals incorporate every sepia tone under the desert sun. Dried florals are a great way to incorporate these shades with your terracotta wedding centerpieces. Dried flowers can also be used as aisle decorations, they can be used to enhance a ceremony arch, and they can even be used to construct boho-chic flower crowns for your bridesmaids.
Colorful Flowers Hanging in Terracotta Pots: Green Wedding Shoes
If you love the look of terracotta, but you have a brighter personality that mustard yellow, desert neutrals, and sage green just can’t contain, go for brights instead!
Think pink peonies, fuchsia orchids, purple mums, and red roses hanging with other terracotta wedding flowers in pots, or create your own combination of bright colorful hues to include with the other terracotta details throughout your wedding. Guests are unlikely to have seen anything quite like your custom color combination before!
