Spring Wedding Colors: Unique Ideas for Texas Couples Who Love the Outdoors
When you say “yes!” to your now-fiancé(e), you enter a new chapter: planning your spring wedding. And once the flurry of celebrations settles, you can expect to face decision after decision on your way to the aisle. Selecting a color palette is often the most fun of all those choices. And while spring wedding colors are often associated with pretty pastels and garden-inspired florals, they don’t have to be!
So before you start scrolling through Pinterest or browsing paint chips at the hardware store, reflect on your and your partner’s goals for the wedding.
For instance, if sophisticated and classic are hallmarks of your shared style, an all-white wedding could be right up your alley. If you want a more unique, in-season theme for a spring wedding, a garden-inspired palette filled with soft pinks, purples, yellows, and greens may be in the cards.
Yet, many couples need help narrowing down the perfect color palette. For example, should you opt for a romantic blush pink and dusty blue combo? Or would you prefer moodier tones like a rich burgundy or deep amethyst? While you may want more time to mull over this significant choice, you can’t move forward with planning until you’ve nailed down your color palette.
Picking the right color palette for your wedding can get tricky. So we’re sharing tips for selecting your wedding theme and a few of our favorite spring wedding colors to inspire your planning.
Color Palette: Garden Romance
If you want to capture the season’s beauty for your spring wedding, look to the many in-season flowers that blossom in the spring. A lovely way to achieve this is by pairing soft pastels with foliage-inspired greens and yellows, as we did for our Garden Romance color palette!
While dreamy pinks and purples add a feminine touch to the mix, buttery yellow and sage green balance the floral tones with natural contrast. With this palette, we love how easy it is to mix and match spring flowers like peonies, ranunculus, roses, tulips, and—of course—plenty of lush greenery.
Together, these spring wedding colors blend to evoke the sweet romance of springtime. Try using this palette in these ways:
- Blush pink linens with greenery-heavy centerpieces
- Lavender bridesmaid dresses with cream-colored bouquets
- Booking a garden venue already filled with colorful blooms
Color Palette: Bold + Beautiful
For those who prefer a brighter take on spring wedding colors, look no further than our Bold + Beautiful color palette. Wildberry purple, fern green, bubblegum pink, canary yellow, and peacock blue come together for a vibrant design full of energy.
These spring wedding colors are sure to stun and, when combined, capture the liveliness and rebirth of the season. We love how each of these colors pops on their own, but together, they create a fun and cheeky mix.
Here are a few ways to play with these colors:
- Yellow linens with purple orchid centerpieces
- Teal bridesmaid dresses with coral charm peony bouquets
- Greenery-adorned ceremony arch with pink and yellow flowers
Want something a little more Texas? You can’t go wrong with a color palette that starts with burnt orange (Hook em’ Horns!). We created Springtime in Texas to pair romance—blush pink and dove gray—with moodier tones, like Longhorns orange, forest green, and deep marsala.
We love the versatility of this color palette, as you can play around on both ends of the spectrum: soft + dreamy or rich + moody. Or, you could meet in the middle, contrasting light shades with deeper tones.
Consider using these spring wedding colors by pairing:
- Dove gray suits with crisp white shirts and burnt orange ties
- Blush pink linens with forest green cloth napkins
- Greenery-rich bouquets with blush and marsala flowers
Why color palettes are important
Your color palette is integral to many aspects of the wedding planning process, so indecision over the perfect shade of blue can hold up a number of important decisions. Without a defined color palette, your bridesmaids can’t order dresses, your florist can’t design arrangements, your stationer can’t create invitations, and your baker can’t plan your cake style. Needless to say, your wedding colors are critical for tying everything together for a cohesive design.
But selecting your spring wedding colors doesn’t have to take forever — nor does it need to create a headache. Once you and your partner are clear on your shared vision and goals for the wedding, start searching for inspiration online and offline, taking note of the colors (and patterns!) that catch your eye. Here are a few places to start:
- Browsing through Pinterest (of course!)
- Walking through your favorite home décor store
- Matching colors with a palette generator like Coolors
- Shopping your go-to fashion sites
Selecting a color palette is one of your first wedding planning to-dos, but it’s not one you need to overthink. Start with one or two spring wedding colors you love, then add complementary tones to complete your palette.
