There are so many gorgeous palettes for beach weddings which makes it super easy to find one which suits your style perfectly. Here are a few that I like:
The bold, bright array of colours and patterns reflects a fresh, boho chic style for the fun-loving bride. Mixing patterns can scare some people off but I think it’s great to experiment and explore different possibilities. The end result will be very personal and unique.

Oh my, I so love earth tones! I don’t know- maybe it’s the island girl in me but seeing these colours makes me feel relaxed and at peace. The beach or outdoors environment will naturally complement this theme resulting in an almost effortless beauty.

For the bride who is looking for a light, romantic palette, a combination of blush, pink and blue tones might be just the thing to reflect a soft, beachy look.

You know, I never used to be a big fan of yellow but a few years ago I was browsing through some wedding blogs and saw a gorgeous, modern, yellow and grey poolside wedding. I was blown away by all of the stylishly chic details and it really forced some perspective.
To that end, I think a combination of yellow, grey and white is utterly sophisticated. Incorporating a chevron or striped or any kind of pattern into your details adds even more flair.

Nautical preppy is a term I only learned of while making this board though I’ve always been familiar with the look itself. The more traditional colours are navy, white and green which is gorgeous in itself but I decided to add in the aqua because that’s the colour staring back at me when I go to the beach- seriously, our waters are that clear! Don’t take my word for it- here’s proof :-)
For the vintage lovers, here’s a neutral colour palette with just a few soft brushes of colour here and there. Laid-back charm and rustic elements are perfect for a vintage beach wedding.
