I think the most successful wedding color palettes take more than just the bride’s favorite hues into account: They include the wedding location itself—both the indoor décor and outdoor setting—as a starting point when color coding details like linens and flowers, which ultimately gives a greater sense of harmony to the whole event.
If you’re lucky enough to have a venue with a view of the outdoors, remember that taking inspiration from a natural landscape doesn’t mean you have to wear wildflowers in your hair or walk barefoot down the aisle. California brides are fortunate that they can simply look out the window for color ideas that are sure to make a statement, from the bright bottle blues found in the Pacific to the vibrant mossy greens of Muir Woods. We’ve created this Inspiration Board to show you an example. The palette is totally No Cal: sophisticated, sexy, and a little unexpected.
