Wedding Color Inspiration!

It is about time I finalized our wedding colors so I can start thinking about decor!

Our wedding is September 20th. It is right on the cusp of Fall, yet summer doesn't feel quite over yet. Knowing this, I wanted my wedding to feel like a mix of my two favorite seasons!

Parker and I love the color yellow so we knew we wanted to incorporate it in some way! It is the color of my engagement ring after all!

After yellow, I knew I wanted coral and orange. I also knew that although it is a Fall(ish) wedding, I didn't want my yellows and oranges to be the deep, dark, true Fall colors. I wanted brighter and cheerier yellows and oranges. Lastly, we had to pick a base color which would also be used for my bridesmaids dresses. My 4 bridesmaids are all sorts of different in terms of shapes, colors, and sizes so I wanted a color that would flatter all of them. In comes navy! It was the perfect neutral and flatters all my best ladies!

To help visualize these colors I decided to make my own color inspiration board:

Wedding Party, Dahlias, Candy Table, Drinks, Bouquet

I think it'll do just fine!

What do you think?!


  1. So beautiful! Yellow is my FAVORITE color!!! That color combo is darling. I can't wait to see it all. xoxo

  5. I love your color choices! I'm getting married next June and am SO on the fence about the colors. So many people have told me they knew their colors since they were little...definitely not me. Just wanted to say that yours look great, that is something I never would have thought of. Congrats and good work!


  6. Gratitude for sharing these wedding color inspirations here. Keep posting such details here. We also would be marrying in next year at some destination NYC wedding venues and would like to use pink and white theme for our day. If you have any inspirations for that color scheme, please let me know.
