Junebug’s Best Wedding Color Ideas – Coral Wedding Color Palettes!

July 21, 2011 | editorial team

First featured on February 22, 2008, these coral wedding color ideas really caught readers’ imaginations and became some of our most popular color palettes…

Yesterday I got a fun note from Jennifer in San Francisco who is love with her bold coral color palette for her upcoming August wedding. She’s using rich coral colors in her save-the-dates, invitations, menus and thank you notes, all designed by the fabulous designer Cat Seto, and wanted some inspiration for other wedding details to go along with her coral wedding colors. Here you go Jennifer!

I love the organic way that coral, cream and pink go hand in hand. Throw in a little gold and you’ve got a seriously elegant wedding color scheme!

A coral color palette can also be big and bold when you include colors like bright orange and yellow, and add small pops of contrasting color for excitement and depth. Try splashes of lime green or ocean blue in your table settings, favors or jewelry.
