8 Bold Colors We Want to See in Your Spring Wedding

It’s that time of year again! Wedding season has come upon us, and the pastel wedding palettes are quickly making their way back into our Pinterest feeds and favorite wedding blogs. We agree that the light blues, baby pinks, soft greens, and pastel yellows are perfect shades for the spring season. As a bride, you shouldn’t feel cornered into using these colors for your wedding, but you also shouldn’t be intimidated by vibrant colors! We’ve come up with a list of a few bright, bold colors that you should totally incorporate into your spring wedding:

Poppy Red. Let’s face it, we’re all busting out My Chihuahua Bites to brighten up our nails this time of year–why not add it to your wedding color palette! Red hues are a bold color for every season. However, it’s most commonly seen in the colder months, so throwing in a touch of this cherry red will give new life to your spring wedding! We believe it’s best accented with blush, peach, ivory, and leafy greens.

Magenta. Who says jewel tones are limited to fall weddings?! We like to think of magenta as poppy red’s flirtatious sister. Add a pop of magenta into your pastel color palette to create whimsy. This vibrant color can be perfectly paired with blush, tangerine, and deep purple.

Cobalt Blue. Something old, something new, something borrowed, something *cobalt* blue! There’s something about this color palette we just can’t get over. Blue is such a classic color, you’ll never tire of seeing in your wedding photos, and the rich tones of the cobalt add an elegance unlike any other to your special day.

Bright Yellow. Bright yellow peonies and daisies, shimmering gray table cloths, and some pops of sleek gray can modernize your spring wedding, AND it looks fabulous. It’s guaranteed to brighten any guest’s day! Despite what some may think, this color can be very versatile. We love it with lavender, dusty blue, or blush!

Tangerine. When tastefully done, the charm of this orange hue is simply irresistible. This is one bold color you’ll need to utilize in moderation. Depending on the amount used, it can either give off a youthful, summer vibe or a chic, modern feel. We love pairing it with peaches, blush, and dark greeneries. For the ultimate wow factor, pair it with hot pink and magenta!

Copper. Hop on over, silver and gold. There’s a new metallic in town. Rose gold and copper are becoming quite the staples in the wedding industry this year. There’s no reason you can’t make a metallic your main color–it makes a statement that will leave your guests stunned!

Lavender. Okay, so maybe lavender isn’t exactly the first ‘bold’ color that comes to mind, but we adore it too much to leave it off the list! For this color palette, think springtime tea party–throw in a few chandeliers and beautiful drapery, and you’ve got yourself a top-tier wedding.

Black. Black isn’t restricted to the winter months! Using black is the best way to incorporate formality into your wedding. Complement the bold, yet neutral color with ivory and sage greens to add a serene feel. The bonus to using this color – absolutely nothing clashes with it!
