Bright and bold wedding colors are back! Here in 2023, we're expecting to see a slight shift away from the neutrals, blushes and popular pastels that have dominated weddings in recent years. And we should see more eye-popping shades, like fuchsia, teal, cherry red and violet. Jewel tones are back in a big way, too, so we'll watch for an increase in rich hues such as emerald green, sapphire blue and amethyst in color palettes. And bright apricot, sunny yellow and coral are predicted to be hot in weddings this year, especially in spring and summer.
All of these radiant, eye-catching colors will pop within event florals, linens and décor. Certainly, grooms and groomsmen have already been adding a myriad of bright colors and fun patterns in their wedding ties and socks for years! But most of us are excited to see this color trend celebrated in the bridal party's dresses this year as well. And it would be so fun to see brides and event fashion designers pair these adventurous shades with mismatched bridal party gown lengths and styles!
We're so thrilled when the couples we film choose bright and bold colors for their weddings! One recent beautiful example is Marissa and Dan's wedding at Ryland Inn in Whitehouse Station, NJ. Their event was overflowing with a gorgeous palette of fuchsia, pink and navy, with Marissa's matron of honor in sparkling cobalt blue. This striking color scheme unquestionably matched the vibrant personalities of this cheerful and super sweet couple!
We'll dive back into the archives to remember Priscilla and Steven's very personalized Bear Creek Mountain Resort wedding in Macungie, PA, too! They filled their fun event with eye-popping shades of deep purple, lavender and a bit of teal. But that purple was definitely the star of the show! Priscilla's bridal party wore dresses in this bright color, and lots of purple décor was found all throughout their reception.
And we also loved Nancy and Matt's wedding event at St. Paul's Roman Catholic Church in Clifton and Naninas in the Park in Belleville, NJ. The multitude of poinsettias that filled the church naturally provided a bright red backdrop at their ceremony. And they continued the same red into their reception, coordinating it with bold violet-blue accents.
So, couples getting married this year... did you choose bold and bright colors for your big day?
