Top Wedding Color Trends of 2017-2018

As the wedding and decor world gear up to launch a new year of dresses, decorations, and more, some standout wedding colors for the end of 2017 and the start of 2018 became clear. Take a look at them below and get some inspiration for an on trend wedding!

One of the standout trends from Spring’s 2018 Bridal Week was the stark contrast of white and black. Most notable was Vera Wang’s new collection, which featured bone white dresses with big, black flowers, capes, and ribbons.

A black and white wedding is great for the couple that wants to exude an air of formality and elegance. Black and white also pair well with a bright accent color. Gold, silver, red, purple, and blue are all popular colors to pair with a black and white wedding. If you’d like to soften the harsh contrast between black and white, go for some softer grays and silvers for a monochromatic look. You can also use softer fabrics and flowers (such as baby’s breath) to ramp up the romantic factor.

Designer Reem Acra went out of the box with this bold wedding dress that highlights some of the popular trends of the season, including colors, distinct embroidery, and patterns.

We loved the color of a soft French/Easter Egg blue with gold accents. While blue (especially navy) and gold has always been a popular wedding color combo, the soft French blue adds a gentler touch. It is also versatile. You can increase the elegance by focusing on gold mirrors and other elaborate accents, or you can play it rustic with blue and gold eggs or lots of fresh flowers with gold cutlery.


If there is a standout wedding accessory for 2018, it has to be pearls. From embellished necklaces to pearl encrusted dresses and veils, the creamy neutral colors of fresh water pearls made a big splash.

The pearl color scheme is varied. You can choose creamy whites and browns or focus on the natural pinks and blues found in freshwater pearls. It’s a great color palette to choose for the time in-between summer and fall.


Want something a little more bright and vivid for your wedding? Check out one of Pantone’s color schemes for 2018. This color scheme is perfect for a couple that wants something eclectic and fun. The jewel tones are vibrant and rich.


The softness of rose combines with the prickly green of cactuses in this color combo. If you’re a couple that loves flowers and nature with a bit of an edge, this theme is for you. You can combine natural elements with metallic rose gold and copper.

  • "One of the most beautiful, comforting doctrines of the Lord—one that brings immense peace, happiness, and unbounded joy—is that principle called eternal marriage. This doctrine means that a man and woman who love each other deeply, who have grown together through the trials, joys, sorrows, and happiness of a shared lifetime, can live beyond the veil together forever with their family who earn that blessing. That is not just an immensely satisfying dream; it is a reality." - Richard G. Scott

  • Dear Hate
I saw you on the news today
Like a shock that takes my breath away
You fall like rain, cover us in drops of pain
I'm afraid that we just might drown 
Dear Hate
You were smiling from that Selma bridge
In Dallas, when that bullet hit and Jackie cried
You pulled those towers from the sky
But even on our darkest nights
The world keeps spinning 'round

You were there in the garden, like a snake in the grass
I see you in the morning staring through the looking glass
You whisper down through history and echo through these halls
But I hate to tell you, love's gonna conquer all

Dear Love
Just when I think you've given up
You were there in the garden when I ran from your voice
I hear you every morning through the chaos and the noise
You still whisper down through history and echo through these halls
And tell me love's gonna conquer all
Gonna conquer all 
Song by Maren Morris
