While this may not be an obvious color pairing, these two complementary hues work so well together – trust us. It’s a happy combo that’s perfect for a late-spring or summer celebration. The best part? This pairing has a wide variety of floral choices, no matter the season.
How To Use It: You can dress this edgy duo up as much as you like, or keep it casual and garden-fresh. For something more sophisticated, play up both colors equally, especially in your floral choices, and include a neutral such as ivory or taupe to help soften the bold shades. Try fuchsia taper candles on the tabletop, or accent it with poppy escort cards and napkins. If you want your wedding to feel more playful, incorporate a pattern like black-and-white stripes or a gray ikat design. A motif can also combat any fears of the combo leaning too feminine. Celebrating outdoors? Take a cue from nature and incorporate fresh fruit like pomegranates or strawberries into arrangements or as an escort card display. Add touches of the colors in your attire, like in a flower crown or bold pocket square, and in stylish details such as a berry bubbly bar with pink champagne. Opt for a multi-tier naked red velvet cake with fresh fuchsia peonies for the pièce de résistance.
