Color Crush: Turquoise and Coral

We're in love with this Caribbean-inspired palette with a playful vibe.

Why We Love It: Color, especially this tropical palette, shouts fun. A breezy mix of coral and turquoise are complemented with hits of a preppy pattern for a colorful but refined celebration. The sunshine and amazing location doesn't hurt either.

Why It Works: Turquoise and coral immediately set a relaxed vibe your guests will pick up on. Keep things casual with a comfortable dress code (let your girls lead the way with short bridesmaid dresses) and outdoor reception seating. Pull in bright hues in the food—especially desserts—and the paper (think: escort cards, menus and programs). To achieve a more formal look, pair these colors with neutral tones in other areas, like in the table settings.
