Color schemes are often by the season (think pumpkin orange, brown and green for fall) or location of the wedding, such as a starfish for a beachfront wedding, a floral pattern for a romantic garden ceremony, or even a symbol associated with the location of the ceremony (the fleur di lis for Louisville, Kentucky, for example).

There are some common color pairs that are great options to show off your capabilities to any bride-to-be. Here are the five common color pairings and one color set inspired by the Pantone colors of 2015 found in current wedding trends:

  1. Peach and navy
  2. Aqua/light blue and light grey
  3. Gold (or gold foil) and purple
  4. Pink and green
  5. Lavender and mint
