We are making big efforts to implement this color trends int our newest designs and You can find accessories in our online store that will match this fantastic color trends.
Wedding Color Trend 1 / Mint & forest green
A recent king of the design world is neo-mint. This pastel shade of green is going to be a dominant influence in fashion and interiors in 2020. Gender-neutral but still soft and romantic, it will be a clear winner for the wedding color schemes – not only it’s versatile yet elegant, but it offers lots of options on foliage (which is budget-friendly) for fabulous natural arrangements, including succulent plants which have seen a huge comeback in the last 12 months.
Green is obviously the color most aligned with nature, representing growth and new beginnings, a nice significance for any wedding day. Add darker and richer shades like hunter green and forest green, which complement the neo-mint palette really well. Rich brown elements, dusty rose flowers and optional rose gold accents finish the look for a refined but still natural and relaxed color scheme.
Wedding Color Trend 2 / Caramel and Lilac – Copper
Earthy tones have been very popular in both fashion and design lately. They remind me of the terracotta colors of Italian countryside villas. Orange shades are very vibrant and energetic, so perfect for spring and summer, but in muted forms they can work wonders for an autumnal wedding scheme. Leaves take on the prettiest shades of amber from October, which is why orange can also be a meaningful color representing change and movement. It is also associated with creativity, like purple, making these two a perfect match.
Purple is a a color recalling royalty and nobility, due to the prohibitive cost of the sea snails from which it used to be made when it was discovered in Victorian times. For this reason, it often represents luxury and opulence, and can have spiritual and meditative associations (in Christianity, Hinduism and Buddhism). In lighter shades like lilac and lavender it gives a romantic and feminine look, and becomes an all-round color for spring as well.
Be inspired by this wedding color trend: used as accents to the warm base undertones of this palette, you will have a wide variety of choice on the best purple flowers to use in your wedding bouquet.
Wedding Color Trend 3 / Champagne and Mustard
Recently the high street has seen a big comeback of yellow in all its shades, from subtle mustard to bright canary or pineapple. We see it not only in a lot of accessories but also as main showstopper. Yellow is a perfect color all year round; it equally recalls spring daffodils, summer sunflowers, and autumnal leaves.
Earlier this year IB explored the boom of yellow on the interior decorating scene, suggesting this has now become the “new millennial pink”. Taking this color trend to wedding decor, your weddings can benefit from a carefully chosen scheme with yellow tones: pale lemon shades add instantly vitality and positive energy, plus complemented with neutral tones they express poetic and long-lasting elegance.
Yellow is the brightest and most energizing among warm colors, and it brings to mind happiness and sunshine (hands up who needs a bit of yellow in their lives). It can also symbolize mental clarity and intellect, and it’s a lucky color for those born on a Monday like me (wear your birth day colors for an instant boost!). Lighter yellow shades have a calming and content feel, and with gold and mustard tones a design scheme can achieve an almost “antique” look, perfect for an occasion where photography wants to stand the test of memory and permanence.
Champagne or ivory colors are your perfect neutral companions in this color scheme inspired by the latest color trends. They often evoke a sense of historical charm, and are more warming than pure white. They infuse the overall feel of the scheme with earthy tones, perfect for summer and autumn, and for a look aimed at rustic sophistication.
Wedding Color Trend 4 / Powder blue and aqua
The Pantone Color Institute is very important in driving color trends in fashion and design when it announces its color winner for the upcoming year. Despite making a prediction is extremely difficult, its Vice President Laurie Pressman hinted at a Vegas trade show that the Pantone Colors of the Year for 2020 are inspired by the sea.
Blue has been always a popular and timeless choice in wedding colour schemes and of course works very well with white. But to give it an extra edge consider “glitter” grey (a very light shade of grey) or alabaster for your neutrals; add contrast with some darker aqua and steel grey tones for a contemporary effect.
Wedding Color Trend 5 / Teal, orange, gold
As a different variation to the blue trend, teal is your best friend if you are looking for an alternative to classic Burgundy in the October to March wedding scene.
You might not think of teal as a very “natural” color, but nature plays a great part in this popular color combination. It’s actually a duck, the Eurasian Teal, that lends the name to this hue of greeny-blue, and the plumage of this bird also displays dark orange shades and greys, which go really well in this wedding palette.
Teal marries the calm of blues with the regenerative qualities of greens. It is a color of rejuvenation and represents open communication and clarity – a great essence in all marriages, so why not start with this nice symbolism on your wedding day!
It is a sophisticated and elegant color for brides looking for something different to stand out. In this palette inspired by the latest color trends, I have paired it with Persian orange and almond (a warm rose white), and it works beautifully with hints of gold, whether on a cake or for the tableware
Wedding Color Trend 6 / Red, coral, black
A final trend explored by IB is the return of the primary colors (red + blue in particular). A great winter wedding adaptation to this palette takes the punchy red and coral shades, with dark backgrounds and white elements.
Dark stationery has been a lasting trend of the past year, whether full black or charcoal grey, and I love white ink calligraphy for a classy contrast. This color scheme recalls the opulence of Dutch masters paintings.
Red shades are the perfect accent color, and they are very versatile – use lighter shades including coral (Pantone Living Coral is 2019 Color of the Year) for passion and energy, darker ones for power and elegance. Symbolizing the color of love, in eastern cultures, red is often worn by brides, and is thought to bring prosperity and good luck.
Black is a strong ally to this trend for its sophistication and mystery, and definitely adds an edge to any design. Which is why this scheme can work well for both traditional and modern weddings. Finally, little accents of white keep the scheme clean and simple, therefore adapting to both winter or summer (choose lighter red shades for warmer months – including burnt sienna and salmon).
