The Potted Pansy's Favorite Color Palettes


No matter where your ceremony and reception will be or what style you choose, one of the first steps in piecing together your wedding-day vision is choosing a color palette. If you aren't sure where to start, here are some tips and ideas to inspire you!

How to Choose a Color Palette for Your Wedding

Even if you have always dreamed of a wedding with a specific look and feel in mind, the early steps in the planning process give you a chance to explore a range of ideas before settling on "the one"! 

You should first start by thinking about which wedding venue or location might provide the right ambiance you're looking for. For example, if you want an organic yet elegant feel, consider selecting an amazing outdoor wedding venue that suits your personality!

Once you have a place booked and a date selected, you can use the location and time of year to give you ideas. And if you're hoping to add a little spin to the style or theme, start looking in places like Pinterest, TV shows, books, restaurants and more to see what may make your wedding unique!

My Favorite Color Palettes

I have a deep passion for the colors of the natural world, and love seeing unique shades come together to create something that truly speaks to who my couples are. Here are a few I can never seem to get enough of: 

Whites to Ivories

For a soft and more classic color palette, I love using a range of whites and ivories together in a way that is non-traditional. 

Muted and Subdued

Although many florists out there love the bright and vibrant blooms (which have a beauty in their own way!), muted and subdued colors can give off such a romantic and organic vibe. It's also a great palette option for those who are planning a desert wedding!

Plum and Rust

These colors are just rich and warm -- especially together in bouquets and centerpieces. If you are wanting an autumn color palette that is a little outside the norm, this might be perfect for you!

Bold Burgundy, Mauve and Greens

And last, but definitely not least, I love seeing burgundy and mauve against green in really organic and garden-style floral arrangements.
