Color Monday: Coral & Turquoise Wedding

Feb 25 2013

Is it possible to ever tire of coral + turquoise? Probably not. It’s a wildly popular combo, and for good reason … it’s effortless for spring and summer weddings and divine for a destination in the sun. Let’s see how it translates in a few designs!

Welcome to Color Monday!

Why do we love Coral? It can work as a bold hue when it relies on it’s orange traits. But coral is essentially a pastel and is a delicate tone. It is a wonderfully feminine hue without being too “girly” and a wonderful substitution for bright pink. Coral can go vintage, be modern or just simply sweet.

Why do we love Turquoise? This shade automatically suggests a beautiful tropical setting. It creates visions of paradise and is associated with sky, sea, and healing. It has come to be associated with high-quality items wrapped inside cute turquoise boxes. Turquoise plays well with all sorts of hues and works wonderfully with warm tones like coral.

First off, Coral takes center stage in a bouquet.  The delicate texture of the petals increase the feminine nature of the color. The Love and Gratitude Wedding Invitations showcase a floral sketch–perfect for introducing your color choice in a very simple but modern way.

Using Turquoise as the background in the Slide Show Save the Date is a brilliant use of  the color. It allows the Coral to pop right off the background and create a dynamic combination. Here, both colors are showing how bold and powerful they can be. Using large doses of these colors in your wedding would be very impressive. Consider turquoise bridesmaid dresses with bright coral bouquets or flip it around and use coral dresses with bold turquoise necklaces and perhaps white bouquets. Or dramatic uses of turquoise fabric to line the walls of the reception.

Turquoise and Coral is a particularly sweet combination–bringing to mind the colors you might find in a sweet shop filled with treats. Using a large dose of white is the secret to creating that impression. Consider a dessert table adorned with these pastels and sweet cookies and candies as edible art. Charming Lavender Wedding Invitation design suggests a french twist on this as well. Think about Marie Antoinette and the colors of her court. Now you get to be the one to let them eat cake!

  1. Coral and Turquoise…a match made in heaven! They complement each other really well. What a beautiful color combo. I esp. like it on the first design. 🙂

  2. I love the way you show the before and after versions Lindsay. Love those macaroons as well! Coral and Turquoise are such great bedfellows that they remain a constant favorite for me.

    Have great week ladies!

  3. How can I get the coral flower invitation..I really love the design but I only see rye gray and yellow…?

  4. No problem Shanelle–all you need to do is click personalize to open up the editing tool. Then, click the grey box = floral outline. The palette will open up and if you hover, you’ll find coral. Click and it will change. 🙂 You can then play with the floral background color {I like peach!}
