Dusty rose and green
This combination is a little subtle and can be dressed up or down as you see fit. It's a great alternative to a really vibrant pink while still being feminine and gives you plenty of options for complimentary colours and decor too. The dusty rose pairs well with a light sage green and other earth tones - stone, wood and metals make great table pieces or decoration for your venue if you wanted.
Lavender and lilac
Although at first glance these seem quite similar, and at their core are mere shades of purple, but the two tones offer a great complimentary look that can be used to great effect. With lavender offering a light and dusty feel while the lilac gives a fresh twist to your decor and look. Merging the two and including some blue hues can give your wedding a beautiful summer feel.
Blue and deep red
For most people these colours are more suited to a wedding in the autumn but they can be used to great effect at any time of the year. The deep rich reds and tones of blue go beautifully together and create a strong visual interest which lends itself to a really elegant and classy wedding. Mixed in with some earth tones and natural textures such as woods and you have the recipe to a real high end affair.
Black, white and gold
Black and white is a truly classic combination and can be mixed up with different textures like stripes on accessories and table decor. Mixing in a touch of gold adds a real elegance and sparkle to everything that the black and white can't provide alone. All of a sudden everything seems more dressy and will no doubt be a point of conversation for your guests.
Shades of blue
The great thing about this colour choice is you don't have to just pick one shade! It works great in spring and summer but really you can adopt it to be perfect in autumn and winter too. As blue isn't an abundant floral colour you are relying on other accessories and elements to bring in the colour, and you can easily dress it up or down to suit.
Vintage red and peach
This combination has the option of being really striking and vibrant, or you can choose more subtle tones for something cool and fun. You have a huge variety of blooms to choose from to compliment the colours and can easily incorporate the scheme into other elements and decor too. There is such versatility with these tones.
Dark blue and mauve
Another great combination that really lends itself to long summer nights right through to winter weddings. The lighter earth tones offer a pleasing contrast and the whole scheme can be complimented by silver or gold accents too for a touch of sparkle and elegance.
Champagne and wine
Mixing elegant champagne gold with a deep wine red gives a gorgeous scheme for weddings later in the year, particularly into autumn and winter. The two main colours contract each other perfectly and can be complimented with hints of gold in accessories and table decor, or you can add to the theme with dark greys and charcoal.
Off white and greenery
Simple, classy and elegant, this scheme works well in the brighter times of the year, particularly spring through to late summer, when the vibrant greens are at their best and the while reflects back that gorgeous sunlight late into the evenings. Think flowing dresses, floral crowns, drapes and nude wedding cakes. Sometimes it's best to keep things clean and simple.
Whatever your wedding ideas and colour schemes, be sure that all your hard work and preparation is photographed beautifully on the day.
