With an entire rainbow of options to choose from, finding the right colors for your bouquet can feel overwhelming. That’s where trending wedding colors can help you find inspiration for your overall look. Discover 2023’s trending wedding color combos below, and learn 20 ways you can use them in your wedding bouquet.
What are the Newest Trending Wedding Colors in 2023?
Trends are flexible and can come and go like the four seasons — and there’s no shame in totally ignoring them and stepping to the beat of your own wedding march.
But if you’re not sure what direction to take for your color palette, trending wedding colors can provide an excellent starting place. After all — other couples have already done the hard work of choosing gorgeous colors for you. You just have to follow in their footsteps and put your spin on it.
2023 Wedding Color Trends
Pink is a timeless and romantic color choice for any season. But in 2023, expect to see shades of pink out in full force — like sophisticated dusty rose.
Warm and earthy colors, like brown, beige, or rust, are expected to thrive in 2023. You can use these trending wedding colors to bring depth and richness to your color palette or let them stand alone to capture rustic beauty.
Deep or Dramatic Colors
In 2023, wedding experts expect an uptick in more dramatic or bold colors — think rich red, blue, or purple. You’ll likely see pastel tones offset by brighter or bolder variations of the same color, like pairing soft dusty blue with rich navy.
Green is always a welcome support in floral arrangements. But this year, wedding experts expect to see it take center stage, either with green flowers or by pairing greenery with soft or neutral flowers to let them shine.

The exact trends you choose to follow could depend on a few different factors — like the overall vibe you want for your bridal bouquet or your wedding as a whole.
Let’s look at some of the ways you can use these unique trendy color palettes in your wedding bouquet during each season.
Spring Wedding Bouquet Colors
When flowers bloom and trees blossom to life, romance is in the air in the spring. Romantic and trendy color combos that could heighten your bridal look this season include:
The world becomes an emerald wonderland in the spring. Capture some of that verdant beauty and take advantage of a 2023 wedding color trend by choosing a bouquet with rich green tones.

If you want to feel like an elvish princess as you glide down the aisle, this ethereal bouquet is waiting for you.
Lilac and Gold
At your wedding, you become a princess for the day. If you want a bouquet fit for your very own royal wedding, consider using rich purple tones, like those in this cascading bridal bouquet in lilac and gold.
Soft lilac flowers, like roses and gardenias, help capture the whimsical spirit of springtime, while pops of rich purple flowers help provide a hint of bold color. Pairing rich purple together with its pastel counterpart helps take advantage of 2023’s bold color trends while still preserving springy vibes.
As a finishing touch, small golden leaves provide a delicate accent, like an elegant filigree. It’s a picture of regal charm fit for a princess bride.

Accents like cornflower and berries provide rich textural interest to the dusty rose blossoms, while the rich mauve flowers enhance the overall vintage effect. It’s a great way to take advantage of pink color trends without going full Barbie.
Dusty Rose and Cream
If you fancy a softer or sweeter take on pink color trends, consider pairing dusty rose with lighter pink florals and cream tones.
In this dusty rose & cream bridal bouquet, dusty rose flowers blend together with delicate baby pink roses and cream tones. The combination of subtle but stunning pink tones create a romantic and feminine design touch that’s perfect for new spring romance. Plus, the bountiful freeform design reminds us of flowers springing from the ground. It’s chic and trendy, yet timeless and sophisticated.
If you’re planning a wedding that takes place on the border of winter and spring, deep and rich marsala tones could help bridge the gap between seasons — and help you perfect the 2023 wedding color trend toward rich tones.
Consider carrying a romantic marsala bouquet like this one. Blushing roses in soft pink and white capture springtime romance, while unique silk marsala blossoms like ranunculus and dandelion, breathe passion into your bouquet. The greenery helps tie the look together with a fresh and verdant cascade that’s beautiful in a fresh new season.
Summer Wedding Bouquet Colors
A season of wild beauty in full bloom, summer is a time for beach weddings and adventures with your partner. Summery color combos that could elevate your bridal bouquet include:
If you’re staging your summer wedding by the ocean or a sparkling blue lake, navy tones could help capture the cool vibes of refreshing water. So, consider a bridal bouquet in noble navy blue.
Here, the navy flowers like poppies and roses add a bold and unique flare, perfect for summer, while the white supporting flowers offer an airiness that complements your dress. It’s a gorgeous finishing touch for waterside weddings that celebrates a bold, trendy palette.

Fall Wedding Bouquet Colors
As the world becomes an explosion of color, autumn provides a beautiful opportunity to experiment with warm and vibrant colors. Trendy color combinations to consider for a fall wedding bouquet include:
Sunflower and Burgundy
If you want to bridge the gap between a late summer and early fall wedding, using sunflowers in your bouquet could be a stylish way to do it.

Fond of the more dusky shades of late fall? In this rustic wedding bouquet, shades of rust and sepia work together to evoke a stunning color story that celebrates 2023’s affinity for neutral tones. Elegant sprigs of pampas grass add texture and height to the design, while a small string of delicate pearls heightens the vintage mood.
