02 Nov The Most Popular Color Schemes from 2020 Weddings
The first steps in wedding planning right after an engagement is securing a wedding venue and finalizing the date. Next comes the fun part, the designing, and selecting your color scheme up front is key for a cohesive theme. In fact, The Knot 2019 Real Weddings Survey discovered that 82% of couples chose to incorporate specific color schemes into their celebration.
Choosing color schemes with one or two stand out colors and a few accents gives you and your vendors a ton of options when it comes to planning. Everyone from the florist and wedding planner to the calligrapher and caterer rely on this color scheme to plan ahead. While deep red and navy blue have always been classic, there are some new colors rising in popularity.
One of the most surprising color schemes we’re seeing everywhere is light grey
We’ve noticed grey making a huge comeback recently in the wedding world. What’s great about it is that the color is neutral and gives a clean backdrop for dramatic textures and decorations. Light and airy weddings are great with a light grey and deep ocean blues pop against the neutral color. Light gray is equally elegant and dainty making it both fun and easy to design décor around.
Another color that has come back this year is slate blue
Royal blue may always be a classic, but slate blue is making a name for itself in the world of weddings. This gorgeous hue of blue pairs beautifully with deep greenery for a rustic look. Alternatively, pair it with tan and blush colors for a subtle pop. Often couples come across slate blue when designing wedding invitations because dark gray pops beautifully off the page. They are then inspired to incorporate the color into their wedding design. If you’re looking to use slate blue in your wedding, there’s an easy rule of thumb to follow. Pair it with light colors for a delicate event or dark colors for a dramatic event.
Last, but certainly not least is pale pink
Pale pink is a classic feminine color on its own, but it also pairs beautifully with a range of colors. If you combine pale pink with a clover green you can enjoy a warm tropical feeling. Pale pink paired with bright yellow can give you a fun and cheery event. For a more subtle vibe, specifically beautiful in the winter, pale pink goes great with shimmery golds or silver. Pink has always been a classic color for weddings and the palest shades offer a gorgeous touch of femininity to any wedding theme.
While these color schemes are popular in 2020, we expect they’ll stay around for a few years to come. Once you select your ideal color palette, the planning can really begin. Whether you love pale pinks or navy blues these colors will play a part in almost every element of your big day. From the bridesmaid dresses to the bouquet, your wedding will feel like a beautiful cohesive event and the small touches of color you string throughout will add an extra special touch.
