Green in all the hues

We’re seeing a beautiful trend toward gently green-shaded weddings this year. In fact, green is the leading color of 2022 in its many muted shades. Leading the pack are hunter green, olive green, and lighter greens such as sea glass. Among the top designs are weddings featuring moss green with dark, moody accents as well as lighter greens like sea glass paired with neutral colors.

Neutrals will always be in style

Neutral colors will always be a wedding favorite due it’s versatility to combine with other colors and it’s timeless feel. When paired with other muted colors, neutrals allow you to break the mold of whatever season you are getting married in. Whites and creams top the list, but we’ve seen a large trend of soft grays and blacks in this year’s weddings as well.

Monochromatic tones

Various combinations of monochromatic tones are all the rage for upcoming weddings! Blush pink, dusty rose, and champagne is a great example of current and upcoming monochromatic combinations. These lovely soft-themed shades combine a gentle faded quality with normally vivid colors. Blush pink is always elegant and timeless and this year is being combined with champagne and other muted colors to create a soft monochrome-esque palette for a classic glowing wedding look.

Vivid jewel toned colors with dark finishes

In the opposite direction from the light pinks is the trend for vivid jewel-tone weddings. Emerald, sapphire, ruby, and turquoise top the list of favorite jeweled wedding colors. Combining these with dark wood finishes or accents is an easy way to give your wedding a luscious, elegant vibe. Your guests will step into a dramatic high-contrast and richly-hued visual delight of colors.

Warm terracotta

In the warmer tones, this will be a great year for a terracotta wedding. The incredible hues of orange, red, brick, and brown make for a vivid and joyful wedding color choice. Your bridesmaids will look stunning in a terracotta and mustard palette and your table centerpieces will boast an elegant, earthy feel. If you’re planning a wedding bursting with warmth and happiness, the warm tones of terracotta will help to create the event you’ve always wanted.
