Spring Wedding Color Trend 2018

Spring is slowly, but surely on its way. There have been glimpses here and there with 70 degree days in February, but as wedding planners we are always one step ahead of even Mother Nature. Even on the coldest days, we are thinking spring colors and flowers as we prep for wedding season to begin. Blush pink has always been a favorite for spring brides, however I am currently loving lilac. Pantone choose ultraviolet as their 2018 color of the year but that bright pop of purple is not for everyone. I suggest incorporating purple in more subtle shades.

Brides can play up lilac is many ways especially with the variety of spring flowers available at their fingertips including my favorite hyacinth, fritillaria, muscari, and hellebore to name a few.

In addition to incorporating lilac in your centerpieces and bouquets, include your bridal party attire in the color palette. One of my favorite designers for bridesmaids’ dresses in Jenny Yoo. Their lilac shades include “raisin”, “sweet pea”, “lilac”, “cherry blossom”, and “fig”. I love how you can even use several of the purple shades to create a cohesive, yet contemporary look.

When you think spring you also think new growth and the Earth growing green again. Why not celebrate the awakening of spring by pairing green in your wedding color palette? Many brides are embracing greens as lush garlands on farm tables, simple succulents, growing vines on staircases and dripping smilax at every entrance. Green can also be quite show-stopping as attire whether it be an emerald shawl tuxedo, or an olive silk bowtie. The best part is that The Black Tux has many stylish tuxedo and suit rental options. Your best guys can rent suits and neckwear with a modern silhouette that fit your vision and easy to order (so you do not have to worry about the groomsmen!)

I am really looking forward to our spring weddings and the color combinations to come, but I have to say that this is one of my favorites.  It is so fresh and a nice departure from pink (although I will always love pink). What do you think? Could you see yourself incorporating lilac in your wedding design?
