When it comes to planning a wedding, choosing the right color scheme is a crucial first step as it affects everything from the dresses to the decorations; every detail must fit together cohesively to create the desired atmosphere. There are several popular wedding flower color palettes to consider, but the most popular options I'm seeing for 2023/2024 weddings are: neutrals of blush and champagne, pastels of sunset colors, and the ever classic blue and white.
Clearly San Diego couples are pulling inspiration from our breathtaking coastlines and sunset filled skies!
Let's take a look at each of these:
Blush and Champagne
Blush and champagne is a timeless color combination that is perfect for a romantic wedding. This palette combines soft pink tones with warm gold hues to create an elegant and sophisticated atmosphere. When it comes to flowers, popular options include blush roses, peonies, and ranunculus, as well as champagne-colored lisianthus and garden roses.
To complement this color scheme, consider incorporating metallic accents, such as gold candlesticks or silverware. Soft, romantic lighting and delicate fabrics, such as a chiffon or silk table runner, can also enhance the overall ambiance.

For brides who want a more vibrant and playful color scheme, you need to look no further than one of our gorgeous San Diego sunsets, making it an excellent option for outdoor Spring and Summer weddings. This palette combines shades of pink, peach, corals, and yellow, reminiscent of a warm summer evening. Flowers that work well in this color scheme include dahlias, garden roses, ranunculus, cosmos, phlox, etc, in shades of pink, coral, peach, and yellow.
To complete this look, consider adding fun pops of color like brightly colored napkins, playful signage, a signature sunset inspired cocktail!

Ocean Inspired: Blue and White
For a classic, timeless look, blue and white is always a popular choice. This palette pairs crisp white with shades of blue, ranging from pale sky blue to deep navy. Popular flower options include light blue tweedia, hydrangeas, delphiniums, and forget me nots, as well as white roses, ranunculus, scabiosa, lisanthus, etc.
To enhance this color scheme, consider incorporating darker blues in your wedding parties attire, bouquet and boutonnière ribbons, or linens. Using blue and white china for your table settings with glass candle accents can also add a touch of elegance to this classic color combination.
