Saffron Sea Foam Wedding Color Scheme

Picking a color scheme for your wedding sets the tone for the whole affair. For example: Beach brides will often go for softer hues to reflect the outdoor setting, while glamour girls typically choose more dramatic, contrasting colors.

If you're a spring bride looking for something fun yet seasonal, saffron and sea foam is a smart choice. The two tones balance eachother out perfectly — it's a little bit sweet and a little bit sassy. The muted green hue grounds the theme in the pastel range, while the burnt orange adds spice to a sunny palette.

Find items in seafoam for your basic wedding elements (think: bridesmaid dresses, shoes, and jewelry). Then use saffron for the more standout décor pieces such as your invite, cake, and the ribbon on your bouquet, to make them pop.

The end result? An inviting and warm wedding style with just the right dash of personality.
