Teal + Purple + Green

Beach wedding color scheme with teal, purple and green

Good for: Evening waterside weddings

Why the colors work: The blue and teal are both so complementary of the surrounding waters, that they create a seamless blend of scenery all on their own. The hints of purple enhance the tropical vibe, but add a hint of regal charm.

Silver + Ivory + Beige

Elegant white monochrome beach wedding theme

Good for: Elegant beach weddings

Tips for pulling it off: This neutral setting acts as the perfect backdrop to make even the most subtle silver accents pop, like mercury glass beach wedding centerpieces or antique mirrored serving trays.

Coral + Fuchsia + Navy

Nautical themed beach wedding with coral, fuchsia and navy colors

Good for: Nautical summer beach weddings

Why the colors work: Perfect for the boat house or yacht club wedding, a nautical color scheme allows for some casual fun to sneak in amongst the pink hues, and navy anchors the whole beach color palette with an air of masculinity.

Sea Glass Blue + Ivory + Green

Sea glass blue and green beach wedding colors

Good for: Formal or informal beach weddings

Tips for pulling it off: Because of the breezy ocean hues, this color palette can be played up into an elegant black tie event with the addition of chandeliers and tall centerpieces, or for a more casual feel, take less stock in the venue décor and encourage guests to spend time on the beach by installing a seaside cocktail bar.

Marigold + Gold + White

Late summer wedding color scheme of gold and marigold

Good for: Late summer beach weddings

Why the colors work: It might not seem like it, but this particular beach wedding color palette works just as well for glitz and glam wedding themes as it does for rustic chic—drape gold sequin table cloths over formal dining tables and the cocktail bar for glamor, and for the ladder, nix the table cloths completely and expose more natural wood elements.

Canary Yellow + Tangerine + Peach

Color palette for a vibrant summer beach wedding

Good for: Vibrant summer beach weddings

Why the colors work: A beach wedding color scheme like this not only pumps up the party vibe during the day, but it's also reminisce of the stunning pinks and oranges that fill the sky during an over-the-beach sunset.
