Spring is a gorgeous time of the year for a wedding in South Lake Tahoe! The incredible beauty of the crystal blue lake is complemented by grassy green hills, still dotted with snow and wildflowers popping up everywhere. Whether you plan to host your spring wedding in a natural, outdoor setting or at one of South Shore’s incredible wedding venues — like The Landing Resort & Spa or The Ridge Tahoe — your wedding will be an event to remember.
Spring color trends for weddings have taken a turn away from simple pinks and peaches, bringing in two, three or even more colors that play nicely together. We love the wedding color palettes for spring so much, we started a Pinterest board to share them all! Here are our favorite picks for spring colors for your Lake Tahoe wedding.
You may not think of the color green as being a focal point for wedding décor, bridesmaid’s dresses and flowers. But picture a mint green, paired with the faintest hint of peach and cream for accents — or even two different shades of mint that complement each other. Or go darker, with greens that are more pistachio-inspired. These darker shades pair nicely with light grays or shades of purple. Pistachio green paired with a soft rose is a striking combination for a spring wedding.
Often used as more of a summer shade, coral is having a spring moment when paired with grays, shades of cream or turquoise blue. In shades that range from soft to vibrant, you will find coral is an easy shade to incorporate into your tablescapes, invitations, flowers and wedding attire.
We’re not talking about a bright, royal purple. Softer hues of purple — such as wisteria or lavender — are gorgeous colors to use for a spring wedding. They work well with both pistachio and mint shades of green, with light to medium shades of gray or with pink or rose.
Peach or pink can be peachy
If peach seems too girly for you, think darker shades that look amazing with gray and cream, even some shades of coral and peach really pop together. To keep peaches and pinks from overpowering the whole wedding, bring in two or three other shades to tone it down.
Not baby blue or navy blue, but the softer blue hues that almost have a gray undertone are gorgeous for spring weddings. These shades work well with peach, cream and gray for complementary colors. Or keep it all in the blue family by using several shades of blue that coordinate with each other.
