2. Maroon
A maroon or dark red color is a beautiful color to wear to a wedding. It’s bright but not too bright and the color looks great on everyone. If you’re attending an evening wedding this color will go perfectly with the night sky. Try a dress that is off the shoulder and hits right above the knee.

3. Simple Pattern
A pattern is great to wear to a wedding if it’s not too loud. Choose a gorgeous summer dress with a nice pattern for a daytime wedding where the weather might be a little warmer. The light blue and pink mixture are perfect to wear to a wedding.

MY COUSIN, AKA MY BEST FRIEND IN THE WHOLE WORLD, GOT MARRIED!!! First of all, she was the most beautiful bride I’ve ever seen. Second of all, I have never seen a more beautiful couple than Chelsea and Ryan . Chelsea’s mom (my Aunt Gloria) passed away this past April after battling a stroke. Then last month, Ryan got diagnosed with brain cancer last month. In Chelsea’s words, “life has knocked them to the ground” a million times over. What I saw on September 21st, however, was that their love is stronger than all of that. THEY are stronger than that . The wedding was the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen (and it honestly made me reconsider if I even want to have an official wedding party). This day just made me re-believe in love (sorry Mikhail 🤣🤣), and my heart is so full of happiness and joy and love for Chelsea and Ryan. CONGRATS AGAIN 💛💛💛 . (PS… My photos can not compare to professional photography. I will be sharing more photos once the professional photos are available!) .

4. Bright with a Neutral
Bright colors are beautiful to wear at a wedding especially if you pair it with a neutral color like black. The neutral color helps minimize the shock of a bright and fun color, like this orange, but they still pair well together and create a gorgeous outfit.

5. Jewel Tones
Jewel tones are a color that never go out of style. Colors like a deep purple, navy, or emerald green make a bold statement at any wedding you attend but they won’t take attention away from the bride. Jewel tones are also the perfect color to wear to an evening wedding.

6. Gold
Gold is beautiful for a wedding color. Gold is a statement color and you will look gorgeous the entire night. Wearing a gold color also easily glams up your look with minimal effort.

7. Blush
Blush is a popular color to wear at weddings, especially since it is a prime wedding color today. The color is soft and pretty, and you can easily dress it up for an evening wedding or dress down for a more casual daytime wedding.

8. Pastel
If you’re attending a wedding in the springtime, then navigate towards pastel colors. Pastels are perfect for springtime since they aren’t overly bright but still a nice shade. Try out this pastel yellow for a gorgeous wedding day look.

9. Two Tone
Have a little fun with your wedding outfit and try this two-tone color mixture. Opt for two colors that mix well and are popular, like this blush and yellow option, and bask in your wedding day style.

10. Florals
Florals are extremely popular for any wedding and we can see why. The soft flowers mixed with pastel colors are perfect for any wedding, especially if it takes place during the day. Try a floral combination with dark and light pinks for a beautiful style.

11. Teal
Teal is a beautiful color but not too dark for a wedding. The mixture of green and blue will match perfectly to any wedding you attend and if you rock it in a romper.

12. Pink
Pink is a popular color for a wedding, and it is easy to see why. The color is fun and girlie, plus it can easily be dressed up with a jacket or jewelry or keep it minimal.

13. Blue
Blue is a great option when it comes to choosing a color to wear to a wedding. Blue is a universal color and looks stunning on everyone. Choose a long blue dress for an evening affair or something shorter and simpler for a daytime wedding.

14. Orange
If you’re attending a wedding in the fall, then go for a beautiful orange color. Orange isn’t overly bright, but it will pair perfectly with the season and the aesthetic of the wedding.

15. Neutrals
Choosing a wedding color can be tough and if you’re unsure, go for a neutral color. A beautiful like tan or brown goes perfectly with anything and you don’t have to worry about your outfit upstaging the bride.

When it comes to choosing a color for a wedding you just have to remember to not wear full white or black. Anything else you choose will be totally acceptable and you’ll look beautiful at whatever wedding you attend. Typically, couples will put a request on the invitation if their looking for a special look. Have fun with your wedding day outfits and don’t stress.
