Those lucky enough to be tying the knot this summer are probably already well on their way to having most of the formalities of the day sorted, but might still be a bit up in the air when it comes to wedding colours! For a lot of people a pretty colour scheme just comes about naturally, and sometimes a theme will influence your palette (i.e. vintage yields pastels, a festival theme will usually be quite colourful etc…) but sometimes you need a little inspiration to help you along the way with it. And it’s for that very reason that we created today’s beautifully bright coral palette. Contrary to what you might have gleaned from Pinterest however, coral is not an easy colour to pull off for a wedding. Depending on skin tones it can make your maids look washed out (try peach or pastel pink instead), and can be a little overpowering when overused in decor – that is why the trick is to ground it in shades of pink and earthy greens and let the coral pop where it is most natural. Stationery and flowers are the key here as they can carry off coral without looking too harsh, and of course accessorising with a pair of coral toned earrings or socks for the groom is always going to look cool. Check out our take on a coral palette below for more ideas!
