Choosing a wedding color palette is often one of the first (and most exciting!) decisions you make when planning your wedding! Yes, you need to have your logistical elements down (a wedding planner, a guest list, a budget, etc), but once you have those fundamentals in place, designing your wedding can be really exciting. At least, it is over here at Write Pretty for Me!
In case we haven’t officially met yet, I’m Alane, a Hoboken wedding calligrapher, and I help couples choose and design their wedding day signage, seating charts, day of stationery and so much more. Today, I’m going to share the 4 wedding color palettes I’m seeing couples’ gravitate toward in 2022 and 2023. More than that, I’m going to tell you exactly how to make it your own. If you are in love with all the wedding day details as much as I am, learn more about working with me by clicking the button below!
While boho is hardly a new concept in 2022 (the style has captured couples’ hearts everywhere for the past several years!), in 2022 and 2023 couples are taking it up a notch and making this trending style extra personal. If you want the look, start with warm neutrals (brown tones, pampas grass, etc) and add a pop of color. The only question is: do you prefer a warm, muted tone like terracotta or a brighter shade of the red/orange color family.
Don’t be afraid to go dark! Boho has always had my heart, but I have to admit, moody and romantic wedding color palettes have risen in popularity and I am here for it! If you are dreaming of a moody and romantic wedding, I recommend starting with a darker color (black, burgundy, navy) and adding a complementary color lighter hue.
If you favor the bright and bold, I’m right there with you! I’ve had a lot of fun designing weddings for 2022 (and 2023 already – if you can believe it!) and bright wedding color palettes are coming back! Neutrals like white, black, and metallics are still making an appearance and to be honest, they are making the bright colors couples are choosing this year pop even more. Pink and Blue Tones are what I’m seeing the most of but whatever color catches your eye, round it out with a few neutrals, some greenery and/or pampas grass and you have yourself a stunning unique wedding design.
All white weddings have made a serious comeback. One of the great things about an all white color palette is that it lends to both a modern and classic style. It’s also a very forgiving color palette if you aren’t working with a professional wedding designer and don’t want to stress. I share a lot of tips for making your wedding day design here, but it’s even easier with an all white color palette!
Not a fan of white? Monochromatic wedding color palettes can be colorful too – just choose one color and include as many variations as possible for a well-rounded look. Ombre can be an especially fun option for bridesmaids’ dresses and wedding bouquets!
At the end of the day, I will always be your biggest cheerleader if you want to skip the trends and do something completely unique to you. I’m also a big fan of mixing and matching styles and trends if that’s more your style. Take what you like, and leave the rest. I’m here to support you every step of the way. If you are ready to start planning your own day-of details, I have very limited availability for 2022 and am actively booking for 2023.
