  6. Lilac + Butter Yellow + Mauve

    Good for: Vintage garden weddings

  7. Khaki + Blush

    Good for: Romantic, classic weddings


    Tips for pulling it off: It's hard to beat the softness of blush when your goal is romance, and khaki keeps the pink from seeming too sweet. A few pops of a deeper pink, like fuchsia, in the centerpieces can add depth and sophistication.

  8. Maroon + Apple Green

    Good for: Lush outdoor weddings

    Tips for pulling it off: Deep red and bright, crisp green complement each other naturally, but be careful to avoid an unintentional Christmas theme. Choose one as the dominant hue, and use the other as an accent.

  9. Gray + Sage

    Good for: Earthy outdoor weddings

    Tips for pulling it off: Pairing mossy green with neutral gray is seriously grown-up and sophisticated. Add touches of silver -- in the guys' ties or the table runners, for example -- to give this quiet palette some sparkle.

  10. Gold + Light Blue

    Good for: Formal daytime weddings

    Tips for pulling it off: These two lights make an unexpected pairing that's oh-so-chic and totally of-the-moment while still having a vintage vibe. Keep gold accents simple to avoid any hints of gaudiness.

  11. Chocolate + Mocha + Cream

    Good for: Outdoor fall weddings

    Tips for pulling it off: Deep and rich, this sumptuous trio works in laid-back settings as well as formal affairs, and what it lacks in brightness it makes up for in sophistication. Layering decor elements -- a chocolate tablecloth with a mocha runner topped with cream flowers, for example -- will bring out the palette's complexity.

  12. Turquoise + Moss + Apricot

    Good for: Rustic outdoor weddings

    Tips for pulling it off: Turquoise and moss read totally rustic, but apricot adds a splash of vibrancy and interest. Choose an earthy setting at sunset to show off these hues best.

  13. Cantaloupe + Honeydew + Pistachio

    Good for: Rustic fall weddings

    Tips for pulling it off: This brighter take on the typical fall colors of red, orange and moss green adds instant energy. Choose neutrals thoughtfully -- these colors pair better with natural tans and browns than stark black and white.

  20. Navy + Olive + Peach

    Good for: Rustic outdoor weddings

    Tips for pulling it off: Choose a woodsy venue and you'll have the advantage of a space that complements this palette perfectly. For your reception, pitch a tent with open sides for a rain plan that doesn't block the view.
