Wedding Colors Trends: 32 Colorful Wedding Décor Ideas You’ll Love

A vibrant wedding in the form of bright colors and bold patterns will undoubtedly stand out – and in a good way! While we see many soft wedding color palettes and muted tones, another trend is at the complete opposite of the color spectrum: the bright, colorful wedding palette.

Throwing a colorful wedding allows you to express your style and creativity in the best possible way and can beautifully blend with any mood and theme, whether bohemian, rustic, vintage or elegant. However, manipulating and coordinating a bright, colorful wedding palette can be tricky, so always keep in mind these three rules:
– Be careful not to overdo it
– As a rule of thumb, stick to no more than 3 or 4 bright colors that you can complement with greenery, whites, natural elements, ribbons or muted tones
– Play with the contrasts between pastel colors and bright colors, or even darker ones with harmony and elegance.

We guarantee your wedding will be fresh, vibrant, and fun while remaining beautifully romantic. The best part? This colorful wedding palette can work for an elopement, a small or even a big wedding.

So if you are looking for elevated yet colorful wedding décor ideas, then you have landed in the right place. We are talking vibrant wedding colors, bright florals, and décor accents that will surely POP!
