When Fifty Shades of Grey Just Isn't Enough

Updated: Apr 18, 2023

Alright, all you soon-to-be newlyweds, gather 'round! Let's talk about the one thing that makes or breaks a wedding (aside from the vows, of course) - the color scheme. Because, let's face it, nobody wants their wedding photos to look like a hot mess of random hues.

So, get ready to unleash your inner Picasso, as we dive into the fabulous world of color palettes for your big day. And trust me, we're not just talking about the cliché "blushing bride" pink here, honey. Buckle up!

The Moody Hipster

Are you an edgy couple that scoffs at the idea of a traditional white wedding? Then this palette is for you. Think deep, moody hues like burgundy, navy, and forest green, with a touch of gold for that extra bit of sparkle. Pair this with some indie folk tunes, and you'll have a wedding that's more Insta-worthy than avocado toast.

The Retro Throwback

Feeling nostalgic for the days of scrunchies and cassette tapes? Let's take a trip back in time, babe! Embrace the neon colors of the '80s and '90s – hot pink, electric blue, and maybe even a splash of slime green. Your guests will be begging for a "Saved by the Bell" reboot by the end of the night.

The Eco Warrior

Are you the type of couple who met at a zero-waste workshop and bonded over reusable tote bags? Perfect! Your wedding colors should reflect your commitment to Mother Earth. Go for shades of sage green, earthy brown, and organic ivory. Throw in some recycled glass tableware and an upcycled wedding dress, and you'll be the talk of the eco-town.

The Unicorn Dream

You've spent your entire life dreaming of a fairy-tale wedding, and nothing says "fantasy" more than a unicorn-inspired color scheme. Embrace pastel shades like lavender, baby blue, and millennial pink, and don't be afraid to throw in some holographic accents. Remember, if you don't feel like you're drowning in a Lisa Frank trapper keeper, you're not doing it right.

The Minimalist Chic

Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication, darling. If you're a couple who believes that less is more, opt for a minimalist color scheme. Stick to classic black and white, with maybe a hint of metallic gold or silver. Just remember, you're not hosting a funeral, so don't forget to add some personality with pops of color in your floral arrangements or accessories.

The Tropical Paradise

Dreaming of a destination wedding without the hassle of airport security? Bring the tropics to your hometown with a color palette inspired by sun, sand, and fruity cocktails. Opt for vibrant shades of coral, turquoise, and sunny yellow. And hey, why not throw in a tiki bar while you're at it?

So there you have it, lovebirds. Six dazzling color schemes to make your big day the most memorable event since that time you accidentally set the kitchen on fire trying to make flambé. Whether you're a moody hipster or a tropical dreamer, remember to have fun and make your wedding truly your own. Lighten up and have a good time planning it!
