Palette Patch: Red As A Poppy, Blue Like Robin Eggs

Poppy red isn’t usually one to make an appearance during wedding season – especially not during the summertime. Being so close in color tone with primary red, it would often be paired with colors to reflect specific themes and reasons of celebration. For instance, when paired with green or white, people think Christmas; when paired with blue, people think America. Imagine our surprise as we discovered another color-combo fit for our current sun-kissed season! Poppy red, paired with lighter hues of blue or aqua – “robin egg blue”, as we would like to call it. This juxtaposed pairing not only successfully steers clear of both Christmastime and American themes, but it manages also to exert its own quality and ambience! Keep scrolling to check for more inspirations!

Palette Patch: Bright Yellows With a Chance of Grey

Within the wedding industry, yellow typically presents as a color for Spring marriages, but who’s to say it can’t be a color for summertime ceremonies too? Yellow can mean hope, cheerfulness, positivity, energy. Bright yellows remind us of the summer sun and DIY lemonade stands from elementary school. In order to post accordingly with the current season, we’ve paired our bright yellows with grey. Check out some of the ways people have incorporated this sunny palette into their dream wedding!

A Pantone-Inspired Wedding

Pantone’s 2016 color of the year is a soft blend of two colors, Rose Quartz and Serenity! Pantone Color Institute’s Executive Director, Leatrice Eiseman, says “joined together, Rose Quartz and Serenity demonstrate an inherent balance between a warmer embracing rose tone and the cooler tranquil blue, reflecting connection and wellness as well as a soothing sense of order and peace.” 

We think these colors make the perfect palette for a spring 2016 wedding!
