When designing the look and feel of a wedding, you can easily incorporate vibrant colors and avoid sticking to a too-safe two-toned theme. These vibrant color inspirations can be brought in through your floral arrangements and linens. You will especially want bright colors if your event is being held outdoors because the more open an area is, the better and more fun it is to design with bright colors that pull together the perimeter of the wedding’s most social area.

Colors like the ones in this bouquet are exciting and alluring.

Vibrant colors for your wedding design will make their way into centerpieces, bouquets, and certain linens. Rather than every table being covered in white linen only, you can choose to contrast with a cool tone like this one:

Perfectly plum table linens.

Notice how beautifully this sets off the simple white chairs. Rather than dressing up the chairs for this particular event, they appear simply elegant against the dark table linen. The dark and light colors take their turns appearing: white chairs, dark table linen, white plates, clear glasses, and centerpieces that bravely mix various flowers.

What makes this particular design style so special is that it lets you get away with big color in adequate quantities. The table linens occupy the most color space and are elegantly balanced by the simple white chairs. They add a sense of intimacy to each table, as if your guests will have a safe space to exchange secrets. The floral arrangements you see in the photos prove that colors you thought didn’t go together actually do, as if they symbolize the harmony of our most unexpected friendships.
