Neutral wedding palettes are nothing new, but they are making a comeback. Neutral colors are easy to work with - nowhere near as intimidating as a rich red or deep blue. But don’t be mistaken! They are equally beautiful and will lend a timeless look to your day. You’ll be able to rest easy knowing that the details of your day will never look outdated. To help you come to a confident decision on your wedding palette, we’re sharing our favorite neutral wedding color palettes with some photos for inspiration.

Cream Wedding Palette

A classic pairing, the colors cream and white are a dreamy duo. These colors feature a yellow cast, for a soft sunshine-inspired palette that will lend a natural warmth to your wedding day. We find it to be a beautiful pair for brides who prefer a traditional wedding look with a modern spin. These colors work especially well with dried florals and bohemian-inspired textures. Alternatively, keep your day crisp and sleek with dainty stoneware and metallic accents.

Blue-Gray Wedding Palette

Bright and cool, blue-gray is a charming for a chic, modern wedding. This shade of gray features a cool undertone, delivering a light but steely look. Combined with other neutral shades, such as tan and cream, it will make for an especially elegant palette. It is a beautiful look for events indoors or out, with a charming blue hue that complements both greenery and a modern venue.

Orange Neutral Wedding Palette

An especially popular color choice, orange and brown palettes lend unrivaled warmth and comfort to a wedding. So much that your guests will have a difficult time leaving! When featuring orange-browns, try to balance out the light and dark shades. Or lean one way, for a more modern or moody look. Start with white, cream, and tan, then add a dark brown and bright orange or rust. If you prefer a more glam style, versus boho, opt for metallic copper accents.

Sage Green Wedding Palette

For our earth-loving brides, you’ll want to consider a green-hued neutral wedding palette. This color is refreshing and energizing, perfect for a bright modern wedding. It can be toned down when paired with light and dark shades of brown. Or for a more chic look, we recommend pink-brown shades, like copper! Stay away from yellow tones, which can cause your entire palette to look sickly. Instead, stick to crisp and bright whites.

Blush Neutral Wedding Palette

One of our personal favorites, blush and white palettes will lend a simple yet romantic wedding look. It’s a classic pairing that looks beautiful, regardless of your wedding style. For a neutral wedding palette, you will complement these colors with various shades of nude and/or tan. Brown tones will lend a little bit of warmth to your wedding, while white will ensure it remains modern. This palette is quite versatile, so opt for either silver or gold accents, depending on your preference.

Tan Wedding Palette

You can’t go wrong with a tan wedding palette! This color looks absolutely stunning on everyone, making it a popular choice for bridesmaid dresses. Aside from dresses, however, it is easy to pull off with the help of fluffy pampas grass and wood details. Tan wedding palettes are popular for both bohemian-themed and more chic affairs. You might complement tan with various shades of brown, light, or dark, or add a touch of blush.

Black Wedding Palette

A non-traditional wedding color, black is one way to make a statement on your big day. Although it is likely to surprise guests, it is also likely to wow them. Paired with a clean white, as well as greenery, it will make for a timeless neutral wedding palette. For a fun contemporary look, stick to solid black and white. Or for a slightly softer look, mix in a range of grey shades. You can even get away with some cool grey hues, like a blueish dove.
