Top Wedding Color Palettes for 2022 and 2023
Monochromatic Color Palette
Choose a monochromatic wedding palette for an elegant, contemporary, and surprising color theme. Examples we’ve seen include an array of champagne and rose gold tones, blush tones, warm peachy tones, and shades of blue that are sophisticated yet soft, romantic, and beautiful.
A variety of green tones in the form of fresh greenery has grown in popularity at weddings. Budget-friendly greenery works with weddings during any time of the year and with any color theme. Expect to see a lot of greenery in all weddings this year and next and green tones that carry over to linens, flowers, decor, and fabrics.
Terra Cotta and Rust
These warm colors were popular in 2021 and will continue to be strong in 2022 and 2023. The warm and friendly hues of burnt orange, terra cotta, rust, rose gold, and champagne are perfect for boho- and rustic-themed weddings.
Bold Jewel Tones
Usually seen in fall weddings, rich jewel tones have made their way into summer weddings. There are plenty of summer flowers with dark, vibrant hues and saturated colors suited for this theme, especially blues, ruby reds, vivid purples, and emerald green. These rich and romantic shades are perfect for brides who are into high style and fashion.
Earth Tones & Neutral Colors
For a peaceful, natural, and soft vibe at your wedding, choose classic neutrals in shades such as ivory, champagne, and dusty rose. Or, choose a similar wedding color palette of earth tones such as nude, beige, and soft white, paired with darker rust and olive green accents. These lovely, natural hues are perfect for nature-inspired backyard, garden, boho, or beachside weddings.
Sea Glass and Sage
For a serene, calm, and refreshing color, select sage and sea glass. These offbeat yet ethereal green hues are becoming one of the most popular color trends of 2022. Greens are universally flattering and complement other colors. Try bridesmaids’ dresses in sage green or table linens in sea glass for a lovely, cool, yet exciting wedding palette.
Light Blue & Very Peri
A classic wedding color, we’re used to seeing blue in darker shades of navy, royal, and sapphire. In 2022 and 2023, expect to see lighter shades of blue tones such as porcelain blue and Very Peri – Pantone’s 2022 Color of the Year, which is a lovely shade of periwinkle blue. From wedding invitations to bridesmaids’ dresses and table linens to accent florals, Veri Peri and porcelain blue are colors leading the 2022 wedding trend.
Replacing the pale pinks of the past, peachy and light orange tones will be in more demand. A striking, fresh, and modern look is to pair peachy tones with contrasting hues such as Very Peri or Mint Green.
Lavender & Gray
Shades of soft dark and light lavender combined with cool greys is an elegant and serene color combo perfect for fans of Bridgerton. Accented with greenery, the lavender and gray hues offer charming sensuality with an elegant flair.
Green & Mauve
Another color combination that evokes soft passion with a touch of boho-chic and Victorian style, is the wedding color combination of neutral, pale greens and dusty mauve. Paired together in bouquets, bridesmaid’s dresses, table linens, and other decor, this wedding color palette evokes natural beauty, femininity, and romanticism.
Hopefully one of the above color palettes has inspired you in your choice of wedding colors.
