Blue, lavender, fuchsia, red, AND pink sounds like a lot of colors in one palette, but as soft, transparent washes of color, they all come together beautifully. For Spring and Summer weddings, take a leaf out of nature’s book and incorporate the use of brilliant floral designs and pastel colors. For the board above, we used Soft Bougainvillea as a reference point for the painterly floral details:

Infusing Watercolor Details into Your Wedding

For an elegant look, pick a side — warm or cool — for your watercolor detail, then tie the look together by adding a solid color as a base. In our inspiration board, we used the cobalt blue from Deep Romance.

Blooming Together, shown below, is a beautiful example of a vibrant watercolor design using warm tones:

For casual wedding affairs, you can have a bit of fun and mix it up. Aqua and sea foam green are reminiscent of the sky or the sea and are great for outdoors/beach weddings. When paired with warmer colors, the effect is light and whimsical:

Remember, watercolor invitations do not have to center around flowers or illustrations! Here are more gorgeous examples ranging from the modern to the romantic:
