Establishing an overall color palette for your big day is a great place to start! Have fun with your bridesmaids and find the perfect color! Today, I’m going to give you a head-start and inspire you with some ideas straight from the ocean itself. Coral, anyone?
Coral Reef Dreams
Beneath the ocean are simply breath-taking naturally created colors that seem almost too good to be true! Coral is the perfect color, as it’s not too bright as a vibrant red and not to obnoxiously orange. It’s a warm color that gives a nice pop to a beach wedding but it also reflects heat to keep the bridesmaids cool and comfortable in their dresses as well. Take it from a bridesmaid like me; it’s greatly appreciated! Coral is also a lovely accent color for your beach wedding reception décor and a great eye-catcher in the bouquets and invitations as well. Check out these wonderful suggestions to get you started!
