Turquoise and Lime Green Wedding Colors

April 30th, 2009

are bright and bold colors, but they are also surprisingly versatile as a wedding color scheme. Depending on the exact shades that you choose, these colors can be beachy, preppy, 1960s mod, or thoroughly contemporary. Not too many other color palettes can make that claim! One of the things that makes lime green and turquoise work so well together is that they have a similar intensity and depth of color. You can create some really interesting visual effects, especially with pattern.

If you love the idea of a 1960s look for your wedding, pick a great mod print to use in your décor. Big graphic flowers or pop art circles would be fantastic. You can use your favorite pattern on everything from table linens to the invitations. Just be sure that the bridesmaids don’t end up looking like they are wearing tablecloths – keep either the linens or the dresses more muted so that they do not blend together.

Turquoise and lime green can be used to design magnificent centerpieces. Fill tall cylinders will real limes, fill with water, and then top with a floral arrangement. There is a wider array of green flowers available than you may think, ranging from romantic green hydrangeas to exotic green orchids. These combine beautifully with white flowers, and the green and white centerpieces will really pop against turquoise linens in either a pattern or a solid.

The bride will certainly want to get in on the fun of such delightful colors. Your bridal accessories, such as shoes, jewelry, and wraps are great ways to add a touch of color to a white wedding gown. A small accent will really stand out against a white dress, so you don’t have to do too much to create a dramatic effect. A strand of white pearls with a scattering of turquoise and lime crystals would be fresh and pretty for a summer wedding. If you want to keep your dash of color under wraps, opt for a sassy pair of strappy sandals that will peek out when you are on the dance floor.

Great wedding designs begin with great color choices. Turquoise and lime green are definitely colors that say fun and festive, which makes them terrific for a summer wedding. Use them throughout your wedding to create an event that will be bold, eclectic, and original.
