Coral Bridesmaid Dresses Are Easy to Mix and Match with Other Colors
One of the many reasons to love coral bridesmaid dresses is that they’re super easy to mix and match with a variety of other colors.
If you plan to dress your wedding party in different colors or want to incorporate two or more hues into your wedding décor color scheme, here are some color palettes that always work:
-Coral, blush, natural, and shades of light pink
-Coral, teal, and aqua
-Coral, peach, and sage (or olive)
-Coral, light blue, and yellow
Coral is an orange-pink hue, and just like light pink bridesmaid dresses, it pairs beautifully with all sorts of neutral tones.
It’s a gorgeous contrast against light gray, dark gray, and brown, all of which are great options for groomsmen suits and mother of the bride dresses!
Simply put, coral is a stunning color for any long, tea-length, or short bridesmaid dress!
Coral Flowers Are Gorgeous!
Many variations of the color coral exist in nature, which means coral flowers are easy to find.
From roses to snapdragons to zinnias, coral flowers are gorgeous.
No matter how casual or glam your wedding will be, coral flowers look amazing with these other types of flowers:
-Pale pink and yellow blossoms
-Burgundy and blush rosettes
-Fresh greenery and white flowers
Whether you wear a modest high-neck wedding dress, a figure-flaunting mermaid gown, or a long-sleeve beaded ball gown with sequins, a coral wedding bouquet will be a beautiful contrast to your white or ivory dress!
How to Incorporate Coral into Your Wedding Reception Décor
If you decide to make coral a part of your wedding color palette, you’re in luck; there are LOTS of ways to incorporate the color into your wedding décor.
You can use coral table linens, such as napkins and table runners, to add pops of color to your dining tables.
You can decorate your reception chairs with coral floral swags or coral bows draped across the back of each seat.
You can even have your bartender serve up coral cocktails or mocktails. With a little Campari or ruby red grapefruit juice, you can create a tasty drink with a pretty coral hue!
The Best Venues for a Coral Wedding Palette
Because coral is such a bold and vibrant color, we love it for spring and summer weddings.
Coral works for any theme or style, but we think it’s fabulous for a country wedding in a rustic barn or on a ranch.
It’s also a perfect option for a beach wedding, as coral looks gorgeous against a backdrop of blue water and beige sand.
Coral is a powerful color, and it’s easy to incorporate into any type of wedding celebration.
As your main color or in combination with other tones, it can help make your wedding reception a truly spectacular one!
