5 Stunning Wedding Colour Trends for 2016

It can be tricky to come up with the perfect wedding theme for your special day, but a great place to start is with the colour scheme. Once you have this, you’ll have inspiration for your wedding flowers, decorations and bridesmaids dresses. This year, both pale and bold colours are in: think soft pinks and deep purples; mint green and bright blue. We provide six stunning wedding colour trends for 2016 to help your choose your wedding reception flowers and wedding bouquets.

Rose Blush Coloured Wedding Flowers

This pale pink shade is perfect for weddings with a romantic, fairytale theme. It’s classy and understated and means creating a harmonious palette of pale pinks and peaches complemented by white. With such a classic look, the bride will wear traditional white while the bridesmaids can showcase blush and nude dresses. Wedding bouquets featuring this shade can be created with roses – either on their own or paired with green foliage or white flowers like baby’s breath or lilies. Blush coloured flowers can decorate the wedding cake and appear in decorations on chairs, wedding centrepieces and place settings.

Serene Blue Shade

Inspired by the skies of summer, this wedding colour shade is perfect for calm and spiritual summer weddings – especially if held outdoors. Wedding reception flowers and wedding bouquets can feature blue hydrangeas, cornflowers, pale blue anemones and forget-me-nots. The look is laid back and pretty, and blue flowers will look beautiful with soft peach and white flowers like roses, daisies and freesias. This colour will also work well with beach or sea-themed weddings, where shells and nautical touches feature in floral arrangements and decorations.

Mint Green Wedding Bouquets

This uber-fashionable shade will make your wedding edgy and modern without compromising on prettiness and style. It’s a gorgeous shade for bridesmaid dresses, wedding invitations and even the (literally!) icing on the cake. It pairs beautiful with pink and wedding bouquets featuring flowers in green and pink will really pop against the bride’s dress. Think roses, daisies, dahlias and trailing foliage like ferns and ivy to create an ethereal look alongside this striking green/blue shade.

Burning Orange

Another hip shade for bold brides wanting to make a real statement with their wedding. It’s a great choice for an autumn do, but can work beautifully for summer weddings too. It also juxtaposes strikingly with mint green and can feature on cakes and decorations and alternating bridesmaids dresses. To create wedding flower arrangements with this look, go for chrysanthemums, gerberas and lilies. To create balance, ask your wedding florist to add silvery foliage and paler blooms to the displays and wedding bouquets.

Purple Haze

This regal colour can be interpreted as paler shades like mauve, or dark berry shades – meaning it can be either pretty and understated or striking and sumptuous. Pastel purple flowers to feature in wedding reception flowers and wedding bouquets include hydrangeas, freesias, roses and irises. Heather and lavender can be incorporated into rustic arrangements with herbs like rosemary and woodland foliage. For the darker purple, berries can be added to floral displays alongside sweet peas, hyacinths, peonies or anemones.
