What colors go well with terracotta?

Terracotta is one of the most versatile wedding colors of all time. You can use light or dark shades to create a kaleidoscope of effects depending on your wedding aesthetic.

Saturated shades of terracotta can create bold statements. They mix well with other warm tones, like orange, red or sepia, and with neutral shades like cream, white, or green. On the other hand, more neutral or muted terracotta tones can act as a supporting shade for more vibrant colors. Think cool tones like blue and purple or even darker shades, like deep brown and black. 

In essence, terracotta can mix well with just about any member of the color wheel, provided that it’s the right shade.

What color season is terracotta?

We most often associate terracotta with the fall, since its warmth and richness remind us of falling leaves and colorful Autumn forests.

That said, Terracotta can easily warm up a winter wedding ceremony, evoke fiery passion in the summer, or bring sophistication to the spring. It can work as a main or supporting color in just about any seasonal palette. The following Terracotta wedding color palettes should provide all the proof you need.

The brown in the table and place settings provides a more neutral accent color that blends the warm tones together. We love how free-spirited and poetic this color palette looks and think it’s perfect for fall weddings!

Terracotta & Yellow

If you want a lighter and softer terracotta wedding palette, try combining it with yellow accents.

In this color scheme, the golden yellow accent flowers combine with terracotta and light cream for a sunny yet sophisticated look. Choosing a richer shade of yellow keeps the look from veering into pastel territory and reminds us of luxurious gold. Plus, using more cream as a supporting color in the candles, plates, and table runner helps the overall table display feel fresh and refined.
