To help visualize the colours, we’ve picked our top 6 favorite shades that we’re looking forward to the most in 2016!
Pink dust, crimson, & electric purple.
The first three colours include pink dust, crimson, and electric purple. The light pink palette offers a soft elegant look and is best used for that modern-vintage wedding you’ve always wanted. If you’d rather show off your flair, then you might want to pick crimson! This vibrant hue is the perfect shade for that summer-fall transformation. It offers that perfect balance between the blossoming colours of summer and the warm crisp colours of autumn. Finally, the electric purple speaks volumes to personality! This free-spirited palette is the perfect primary for an outdoor spring wedding and is best paired with pastel green.
Saffron, coral, & bubble-gum pink.
Our last three favorite picks are saffron, coral, and bubble-gum pink. Saffron orange is the perfect colour for that spring, summer, or fall wedding! This versatile and playful palette is best complemented with a light blue or green accent. If you’re having a mid-summer wedding, then our personal favorite is the coral. Packed full of energy, this bold color stands well on it’s own when it’s paired with neutral shades. If you’re wanting more of a fairy-tale wedding, then bubble-gum pink is the best fit! This romantic and sunshiny hue is the perfect colour for that extravagant spring wedding! Have fun with this palette and pair it with other shades of pink! This is one of the few primary colors you can mix and match with similar shades to get that full blossoming look.
If you already have a colour in mind and it’s not in the top trending colours for 2016, don’t sweat it! This is just a fun base to start from if you’re having problems deciding. Ultimately, you can never go wrong when it comes to picking that primary colour. Just be sure to consider what best represents you as a couple, always be mindful of the season, and have fun with it!
