Wedding Color Combinations: Sweet Lilac and Margarita

Pink and green is always a winning combo for weddings, but for 2012 and 2013, this combination has gotten a major overhaul. Instead of the bright pinks and greens of years past, we’re seeing more and more sweet lilac, a pale pinkish purple, paired with margarita, a muted lime green. Sweet lilac and margarita is a subtle combo – and one that works wonderfully with white as a backdrop or on its own.

Here, we have a hypothetical bride wearing a white trumpet gown from the Monique Lhuillier Spring 2012 collection. She accessorized this gorgeous dress with a pearl and crystal bridal jewelry set in green that will coordinate perfectly with her bridesmaids, who are wearing Lela Rose bridesmaids dresses in pink and clover.

And they will coordinate perfectly with everything else! The décor, for instance, features a color blocked table that puts the sweet lilac and margarita color palette at center stage. And as for the wedding cake, it’s all about cupcakes – margarita and subtle lavender flavors are sweet without being cloying.

We actually think that’s also a great way to describe this color palette. Sweet lilac and margarita are feminine and sweet without being overpoweringly girly. It works for springtime, but isn’t so springy you can’t make it the color scheme for your summer wedding or autumn wedding.
