If you are a design-world follower, you know that turquoise is riding a wave of popularity that never seems to fade. And really, what’s not to love about this color? It’s extremely versatile- this color evokes feelings of  tranquility, relaxation and happiness; it also harken visions of the beach, a lush tropical setting or even a modern Hamptons- type of gathering. It’s just that good. And to say it works well for weddings is an understatement.

With turquoise as your wedding color choice, your options are endless!

Here’s the expert’s take on turquoise (from Pantone.com): Turquoise is a color that most people respond to positively. It is universally flattering, has appeal for men and women…With both warm and cool undertones, Turquoise pairs nicely with any other color in the spectrum. Turquoise adds a splash of excitement to neutrals and browns, complements reds and pinks, creates a classic maritime look with deep blues, livens up all other greens, and is especially trend-setting with yellow-greens. 

Turquoise plays nicely with brights:

 It’s also a great standout color when paired with white and silver:
