Classic Wedding Color Palettes

One of the first things a bride-to be thinks of when planning for her wedding is the color palette. Nowadays some brides tend to be very experimental and bold with the colors and themes they choose, while others tend to lean towards muted, pastel colors. Either way, any color can really bring about a beautiful wedding when executed tastefully. And with the numerous weddings we’ve featured here at Bride and Breakfast, I’m sure you’ll be able to get inspiration from the different color schemes real brides chose for their special day. Here are a few of the classic color palettes that brides nowadays like to go for.

1. Blush Pink. I’m actually a fan of blush pink weddings because everything’s very light and classy. May it be in the gown, the florals, or other wedding details, blush pink really gives off this pure, effortlessly chic feel to the whole event, just like in Jops and Erika’s garden wedding.

2. Beige. Another color a lot of brides opt for is beige. In Buji and Nikki’s wedding, details like the shoes and invitations were beige, and so were the groom and his men! [Photo: Air Balloon Project]

3. Blue. This color can range from midnight, to navy, to a cute baby blue. Either way, all these shades work nicely for a refreshing take on a wedding. How about several shades of blue for the entourage and invitation, like in Wyatt and Lara’s wedding? [Photo: Bryan Venancio]

4. Gray. For another classic pastel color, we have gray, which some grooms like to use for their suit color like in Gino and Steph’s wedding. [Photo: Benjie Tiongco]

5. Mint. A touch of color to the invite can take it up a notch, just like how mint details were added to the invitations in this wedding. [Photo: J Lucas Reyes]

6. White. While others add some color to the entourage and reserve the all-white ensemble for the bride, others embrace all-white details for the wedding and still manage to stand out.

7. Red. For a real pop of color, some opt for red. A very strong and bright color, and if used tastefully, can really bring out a regal, chic look, just like in Bin and Boop’s wedding. [Photo: Pat Dy]
