Although pink can make for a beautiful wedding, not many grooms list it as their first choice for a wedding color theme. Enter coral. For brides hoping to achieve the sweet and sophisticated look of a pink color palette without annoying their spouse-to-be, coral is a versatile and romantic alternative. It’s classy, trendy and adds a refined look to a wedding fete that bubblegum pink simply cannot compete with.
For a spring wedding: Coral pairs very nicely with all shades of green, and what better way to enhance spring nuptials than by complimenting all the green hues in nature during this season of renewal? Groom Sold Separately shows a gorgeous idea board for pairing these fun and flirty colors. Since 2013 is the year of green accessories, it’s also easy to find jewelry to compliment this color palette. Stella & Dot offers the trendy and budget-friendly Julep Bangle in Green to deck out the bridal party, and brides can make a statement at the wedding or rehearsal dinner with this coveted Jolie Necklace.
For a summer wedding: It’s easy to imagine incorporating coral into a beach or beach-themed summer wedding. It pairs beautifully with turquoise, and truly pops against white sand. For the bridal bouquet, choose roses in various shades of coral, pale orange and blush. Brides can even add flowers in shades of turquoise using orchids, blue bells or blue irises. Finish the bouquet with a turquoise ribbon to complete the look as shown here by Amore Bride.
For a fall wedding: Coral pairs very nicely with muted yellows and rich browns, making for a stunning fall color combination that doesn’t overuse the more traditional reds and purples of the season. In this color pairing, use coral accents to soften the brown and bring out the bright and sunny tones of the yellow. Stella & Dot offers great coral jewelry accents to help you accomplish this look. Try the Carmen Necklace for a trendy statement piece for the bride, while the Coral Soiree Studs are a fantastic addition to any bridesmaid ensemble.
For a winter wedding: Brides tying the knot in harsh, cold winter climates in states like Ohio and New York can add energy and originality to a winter wedding palette by pairing muted coral tones with navy blue. Coral can also be a nice accent to a gray and white winter wedding, as shown by Sugar Couture.
