Beach Wedding Color Palettes We Love

Check out the hottest beach wedding color combos to inspire your seaside nuptials.
  1. Turquoise + Royal Blue + Electric Green

    Good for: Afternoon waterside weddings

    Tips for pulling it off: This one is virtually impossible to mess up. Subtly vary the shades of blue and green for a look that's relaxed without looking messy.

  2. Saffron + Camel + Dove

    Good for: Casual beach weddings

    Tips for pulling it off: Soft neutrals get a hit of energy from a bright like saffron. These colors look best against an ocean backdrop, so choose an open air venue or one with lots of full-length windows.

  3. Aqua + Coral

    Good for: Tropical destination weddings

    Tips for pulling it off: Stick with low-key details (like tissue pomanders and tricked-out cupcakes) and super-saturated hues for an island-inspired look that won't fade.

  4. Deep Red + Fuchsia + Apricot

    Good for: Tropical summer weddings

    Tips for pulling it off: Ask your florist to bring blooms in these hot hues, but keep the rest of your decor more neutral (too much of these colors could look overwhelming).

  5. Cerulean + Jade + Bisque

    Good for: Laidback natural weddings

    Tips for pulling it off: Perfect for mellow couples seeking a chilled-out vibe on their wedding day, this combo is unfussy, but still stylish. Keep stark white linens and dishware out of the equation -- softer neutrals like cream will gel better with these hues.

  6. Blush + Peach + Ocean

    Good for: Formal beach weddings

    Tips for pulling it off: Sophisticated ocean blue keeps the delicate blush and peach tones from seeming too innocent. Choose khaki or light gray for the guys' tuxes -- black will look harsh against this sea-inspired trio.

  7. Coral + Tangelo + Teal

    Good for: Casual summer weddings

    Tips for pulling it off: Bright and cheery coral and tangelo get a dose of sophistication from teal. Keep decor and stationery designs simple -- when these three come together to form busy patterns, the effect can be dizzying.

  8. Indigo + Teal + Saffron

    Good for: Summer waterfront weddings

    Tips for pulling it off: Think of this combo as your typical navy-and-white nautical palette, but kicked up a few notches in energy. Dress your wedding party in the more forgiving deep indigo, then deck out your reception tables in the other two party-ready colors.
