This past winter I posted The 10 All-Time Most Popular Wedding Colors and the coral wedding color, of course, was on the list. This post will go in to a little more detail about coral, so you an see some of its possibilities. It is a classic wedding color and depending on what color it is paired it, it can work with a wedding of just about any style.
Coral, a pinkish orange, is one of those colors that seems to work best in spring and summer, since it has a warm-weather vibe to it. But I think the darker hue of the color can work quite well for fall weddings.
Coral can range from a deep, saturated color to a soft pastel as shown in the chart below.
Coral Wedding Color – Coral is shown here without being paired with another color except for white. White is a good choice to pair with coral (or any other color) if you want the color to stand out. When choosing coral bridesmaid dresses be sure and take each girl’s coloring in to consideration. The softer shades of coral can easily “wash” your girls out, so you may want to go with at least a mid-tone hue for their dresses, as shown in the collage below.
Coral and Gray Wedding Color – Coral and gray is a fabulous combination to use for wedding colors. It is perfect for fall for a totally unexpected palette. This combination is also “groom friendly” … what I mean by that is that it is not a particularly girly combination and it is likely to appeal to your groom.
Coral and Navy Wedding Colors – This combination is versatile and works with many wedding styles such as preppy, nautical, rustic and more! In this collage, the bridesmaids are wearing navy and bringing in the coral with their flowers. This can be a great choice, if the bridesmaids have darker complexions/hair as shown below.
Coral and Turquoise Wedding Colors – As they say, “What’s not to like”! This combination is gorgeous and brings out the very best in both colors. This combination is perfection for a beach wedding, yet it would also work for a rustic or garden wedding, too.
