Say bye bye to blush tones, and hello to jewel tones because this season’s hottest color palettes are all about rich, sultry hues. Plummy purples, emerald greens, and deep dark reds are just a few of the shades taking over from the pretty pastels of the last few years. Creative couples everywhere are embracing this shift toward bolder colors and incorporating them into their wedding day, and you can too.

An easy way to incorporate jewel tones into your wedding look is through your make-up. Pair a dark fuschia lip with a green shadow on your eyelids for a striking effect.

A jewel tone color palette opens up your floral options considerably, especially if you’re having a fall or winter wedding. Consider using dahlias, anemones, and succulents.

As for your wedding cake, you can easily achieve a jewel toned look with fondant icing, but we love the simple idea of adding purple and red fruits to a rustic white cake.
