Deciding on a colour scheme for your 2018 wedding? Here are a few of the latest colour trends to act as inspiration. From vibrant purples to muted pinks, lime green to dark blue there’s something for every season and every wedding style:

Dark Blue and Bordeaux

Darker colours are on trend. They’re moving in to replace the minimalism and lightness of previous years. A dark, dusky blue coupled with a deep red will create a sophisticated and dramatic look fit for any time of year.
Dusty Pink and Green
Understated and elegant. Romantic but not girly. Dusty pink and green are a match made in heaven. What’s more, this scheme offers plenty of scope for your décor and flower choices.

Ultra Violet and Gold

Ultra Violet is Pantone’s colour for 2018. As such, it’s sure to crop up in countless designs, interiors and weddings over the course of the year. This vibrant shade of purple is a great way to add energy and originality to your big day. And it looks beautiful when paired with gold.

Slate Blue, Grey and Beige Wedding Colour

This collection of blue tones and neutrals is another elegant combination. Pick out greys and blues with bridesmaid dresses and groomsmen suits. Then choose pale leaf foliage and barely pink petals for your flower arrangements.

Gold, Black and White

For old-style glamour with a contemporary edge, go for a gold, black and white colour scheme on your wedding day. Black and white give a classic feel. The gold gives shimmer and shine.

Lime Green, Grey and Cream

Bring a little fun to your big day with a splash of lime green. Let the lime green shine with ties, shoes, foliage and mojito cocktails! But big up the neutrals elsewhere to keep the vibrancy of this colour in check.

Olive Green and Tangerine

Muted colours like olive green look great when paired with something more daring like tangerine orange. You’ve got brightness and personality without it being garish. This scheme fits exceptionally well with an autumn wedding but you could make it work in spring or summer too.


Emerald Green and Cream

Last year was all about pared back colour schemes and tons of greenery. But why not up the glamour stakes in 2018 whilst sticking with an elegant look? Choose emerald green over a more natural tone to maintain the minimalism but add a touch of luxury.

Tomato Red, Green and White

For a real splash of colour – that looks as good in summer as in winter – opt for tomato red. It’s bold but not as brash as other tones. And it’s a perfect way to show guests that your wedding is all about the party!

We’re in love with every one of these beautiful 2018 wedding colour schemes. Just remember, don’t overdo the bolder tones if you want to keep things elegant. And always keep your colour swatches to hand when adding a new tone into the mix. Then have fun deciding when and where to include your colours throughout the day.
