Spring 2021 Wedding Colors
These bright and bubbly wedding colors are perfect for the months of March through May!
Bright Blue & Yellow Hues
Blue and yellow are a classic combo that are highly underrated. We’re expecting to see a huge uptick in this pairing, amongst brides who want a lively wedding look. For blues, we recommend the popular slate blue or a cornflower. For yellow, you can go as soft as champagne or as bright as mustard. When it comes to this palette, try to stray away from greenery, or you’ll end up with a slightly green cast.
Peachy Pinks & Oranges
Pink is easily one of the most popular spring wedding colors. But we’re proposing that you amp things up a notch by incorporating a mix of orange shades and hues. Orange will add a little fire to your palette, for a more fun and lively look. Try out shades like cream with a pale pink and brick, plus coral, salmon or peach.
Earthy Orange, Pink & White
Neutral tones can be difficult to pull off in the spring time, but we’re here to give you some helpful tips. The best color to start of with for this season is an earthy orange, like rust or terracota. We know what you’re thinking - those are fall colors! But when paired alongside a dusy pink and white, you’ll have a contemporary warm romantic color scheme. Versus the rough fall textures like pampas and wicker, opt for softer vibes provided by roses and ribbon.
Why pick a few colors when you can feature them all? A technicolor wedding palette is a no-brainer, especially for a bride who is planning a truly festive affair. Bold and bright colors are non-traditional, but oh so memorable. Combine a rainbow of colors, like mustard, crimson, cerulean, emerald, hot pink and tangerine.

For a dark and moody vibe you can add black to the mix, or to keep it airy a pale pink. We love this colorful combo for a bride with a big personality, especially when featured in a lush and open outdoor setting.

For a more feminine look you can add a pale pink to the mix, or for a more moody and formal vibe, a classic black.

While orange will complement the season, dark teal will lend some contrast. While sophisticated this palette is also ideal for a boho bride who likes color. If you want wa warmer scheme, you can add gold and crimson to the mix.

To lighten it up, add white or cream. Want a touch of glam? Make sure to incorporate some silver metallic accents.
A neutral palette consisting of warm tones is perfect for a retro or boho themed wedding. For this look, we recommend you go heavier on dark shades than light. This will lend a more edgy vibe, versus a traditional look. Stick to orange-red neutrals like rust, terracotta, tan, cream and even black. While you want a more monochromatic palette, don’t be afraid of adding in a little greenery.
