Lavender & Lilac

As gouache shades of purple, lavender and lilac are two hues that have been in trend off-late. Not only has this colour emerged as wedding decor recently, but we've also seen brides embrace it for their attire. Symbolising purity and love, lavender and lilac are unsurprisingly going to be all the rage in 2021, with brides choosing them over more traditional colours. And we're game!


Be it champagne or foil gold, gold is a legendary colour that's a classic for weddings. Gold has been a part of wedding aesthetics since the beginning of time. And after taking the backseat for a while, gold has come back into the wedding aesthetics, we're glad to let you all know that gold will be a major part of all the trending wedding colours of 2021. Be it decor, or a bride's or groom's outfit, gold is a gorgeous colour that can be rocked in both traditional and modern silhouettes. 

Earthy Green

Evergreen, lush and brilliant in every way, green is a colour that has been a part of weddings for a long time and we're rooting for it to stay and make 2021 weddings lively. Be it light or deep shades of green, they can be styled gorgeously in every way possible. We love a good green lehenga on brides, and it, in general, is a major part of a bride's wardrobe. So, if 2021 weddings rock a major green vibe, we're all in!

Ivorys & Off-Whites

With people slowly and steadily mastering the art of minimalism, colours like ivory and off-white are sure to entice anyone who loves a modest and aesthetic vibe. The subtleness and calm tones of neutral colours like ivory and off-white have a very trendy and regal appeal to them. When you're a fan of less is more, then these neutral colours are bound to appease your minimalist mind. 

Papaya Orange

A very off-beat choice for any wedding, papaya orange as a wedding colour for 2021 is a choice we'd love to see. The colour is vibrant and happy in every way possible! Plus, if you're not up for the yellow decor vibe, then you can always play around with this shade that can look super chic and give a pop of colour to a pre-wedding function!
