6 Wedding Color Themes You Didn’t Think About

Perhaps, you’d like to break from the traditional colors for wedding palettes and make your own statement. Making your own statement can transform an ordinary wedding into an extraordinary event. If you want your wedding to be of a different hue with colors that pop, we have a few suggestions for you.

Radiant Orchid

If purple is your favorite color, you are a gentle and free spirit. Purple has been used to symbolize magic and mystery, as well as royalty. Do you love purple? Why not go beyond the expected and to the unexpected. Radiant Orchid was Pantone Color Institute’s Color of the Year in 2014. This luscious color is an enchanting blend of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones. Radiant Orchid is a lovely wedding palette that combines well with other shades of purple and lavender.


Capture Cobalt! Cobalt is a very vibrant shade of blue, sometimes called Sapphire. Sapphire carries the blue symbolism of importance and confidence. It has something of a fresh, spring-like quality, hinting at playfulness. Cobalt has a connotation of wealth, elegance, beauty, and royalty. Traditionally, the color sapphire symbolizes truth and sincerity. This exciting color can stand alone or mixes well with cream or white and maybe a dash of black. Cobalt lends well to a sunny, outdoor wedding.


Aqua, a blue-green color, is a variation of the color cyan, and in Latin means water. Aqua symbolizes nurturing and playfulness. It is perfect for a beach wedding or Shabby Chic wedding. This lovely color can be paired with white or cream or stepped up a bit with another color like peach or pink. Imagine aqua in your future!


Emerald was Pantone Color of the Year in 2013. It is light and bright with a faint bluish cast. Emerald is the color of balance and harmony. From a color psychology perspective, it is the great balancer of the heart and the emotions. This enchanting green pairs well with silver, white or cream, but is such a gorgeous color it can easily stand alone or be complimented by other shades of green.


Being the lightest hue of the spectrum, the color psychology of yellow is uplifting and illuminating, offering hope, happiness, cheerfulness and fun. Yellow may not seem very unusual, but for a unique palette, choose this striking color as your main color. How you pair yellow defines your look…your personality…your statement. Yellow with Gray has a romantic, formal feel. Yellow with Pink is also a beautiful and different combination.


Another stunning look is Moss. Moss is a comfortable, outdoorsy feel. The color goes well with earthy accents such as sheet moss, grasses, branches, etc. and pairs beautifully with white, cream, gray and pale yellow. Moss can be a dark green with a tint of yellow, like that of the plant moss, or a pale grayish-green, like that of lichen.

You might not have considered these colors, but they are spectacular and can make your big day a singular visual experience for you and your guests. Dare to be different! Rethink color!
