Color Palettes for a Coral and Peach Wedding
For a wedding theme that has coral and peach in the title, the main constituent parts of the color palette are pretty cut and dry. Realistically, you’re going to be working with a lot of colors in the orange and pink families, so the overall theme will be inspired by springtime, warmer weather and more feminine aspects.
To balance these colors out and stop your wedding from seeming too sweet, make sure that you compliment the oranges and pinks with plenty of natural greens and lighter whites and ivories to bring some space into your coral and peach wedding color palette.

Details for a Coral and Peach Wedding
With both coral and peach being quite natural and fun elements, the inspiration for your wedding details should follow this kind of vibe. Think about details like colored ribbons and floral arrangements that have a lot of movement and color involved that you can spread throughout your ceremony and reception decor to tie them together.
You can also add in some vintage pieces, for example, with your table setting, centerpieces and altar decoration by using items like heavy gilded cutlery, ornate chairs that you can drape flowers around, and candelabras. This will add some depth and texture to your wedding, rather than everything being light and bright.
Wedding Cake for a Coral and Peach Wedding
Possibly everyone’s favorite part of a wedding – it’s the cake! Now with a coral and peach wedding theme, there are a couple of avenues that you can go down with your wedding cake design and flavors.
To be on the nose with your cake flavor, you can infuse some peach into it either with jam or by going with a sort of southern style peach and bourbon dessert instead of a cake altogether. In terms of design, it’s always good to use the coral tones and peaches, cascading and blurring them together in a spectrum as you go down the wedding cake tiers.
Table Setting Style for a Coral and Peach Wedding
This kind of coral and peach wedding tends to be fairly informal, however, there are still some cool details that you can bring into your table setting style that will really bring this theme to life for your wedding guests.
Although primarily the table setting centerpieces for this theme will consist of floral arrangements, you can highlight these with nature-inspired candlesticks, cutlery and place cards, that offer a visual point of difference and add some opulence to your wedding reception table setting displays. For your crockery, stay with light neutrals and bring in peach or coral colored linens to tie everything together.
Budget for a Coral and Peach Wedding
As with a lot of different weddings, there are many ways to either save money on your big day or majorly blow the budget depending on your situation, your vision, and the level of detail that you’re wanting to go into.
Because this particular coral and peach wedding is quite heavy on the floral elements, this could add up in price really quickly – as we know, fresh flowers and bouquets can be surprisingly expensive. Apart from the florals, the rest of this coral and peach wedding is fairly affordable with a small, intimate vibe and an informal attitude to the wedding venue.
Wedding Dresses & Accessories for a Coral and Peach Wedding
Now, traditionally the bride is in some kind of shade of white or ivory – for this coral and peach wedding that’s not necessarily the case. With an informal, non-princess dress atmosphere, you can have a peach or coral flowing wedding dress and have your bridesmaids in contrasting short, white dresses for a cool backyard wedding vibe.
If you want to stay a little bit more traditional then you can add in coral and peach accessories and keep your white dress simple and romantic with lace elements for texture which will keep the softness of your overall theme going throughout your outfit.
Bouquets & Boutonnieres for a Coral and Peach Wedding
With this particular coral and peach wedding, there are a ton of floral arrangements to consider. There are many flowers that come in the coral and peach shades, but try and stick to those that have bigger faces with multiple petals to give some texture to your bouquets.
To keep both sides of the theme featured, make sure to include different shades of pinks and oranges throughout your floral arrangements, and have enough greenery and foliage surround the flowers to give depth to the bouquet. This way you don’t have just a load of pinks and oranges as a theme without any break.
Wedding Invitations for a Coral and Peach Wedding
Although wedding invitations are one of the first things that your guests will see, a lot of couples don’t pay a whole lot of attention to their design. However, when you have a themed wedding or you’re having an informal or outdoorsy wedding, it’s important to convey these elements so that your guests can dress accordingly.
With a coral and peach wedding, you can use white cards with coral, watercolor painted script to portray the soft romanticism, and use little painted images of peaches for whimsy and to give a nod to the other side of your theme. Think Wes Anderson colored magic.
Ceremony Decor for a Coral and Peach Wedding
For your beautifully whimsical coral and peach wedding, you’re going to want to bring that brightness, lightness and softness into your wedding ceremony decor, without it looking like these two colors just exploded all over your wedding venue.
The best way to do this is to have a fairly plain venue or backdrop and bring in elements like colored chair covers and linen to drape over the altar. Dot floral arrangements at the end of the rows of chairs for your guests. You can also leave peaches on your altar as a sweet nod to your coral and peach wedding theme.
Outdoor Wedding Ideas for a Coral and Peach Wedding
With such a nature inspired wedding theme like a coral and peach wedding, it really lends itself well to an outdoor wedding. The lush green aspect, as we see in the images, breaks up the pinks and oranges that come with the floral arrangements and other coral and peach wedding details.
Also with the springtime color palette and informal vibe, there is a whimsical, bohemian aspect that follows this kind of coral and peach wedding. This means that you can add in more lace and colored ribbon details that highlight the softness that you’re looking to portray with a coral and peach wedding.

I just love workshop shoots because they provide so much inspiration all at once! Today’s stunner from Claire Graham Photography was shot at the Illuminated Collective, the first ever fine art wedding photography workshop held in England and oh my gosh is it pretty.
