Flowers are an important element that must be exploited in the spring months. They can help create gorgeous decor that impresses with elegance and sophistication. You can choose a main color to start from, and then you can decorate everything using secondary shades to complement the main one. Here are the most popular color combinations for 2023:
Blue + Orange
Although it may seem like a combination created from two very strong colors, you will see that they complement each other very well, if you know how to combine them. First of all, it’s good to know that you can select different shades of orange and blue. For example, you can opt for a sky blue, which you can enhance with a very bright orange. Also, a darker blue (like navy blue) will complement very well with a pale, peachy orange. If you want to add a little extra touch, you can opt for silver elements, which will give a fancy touch to the whole decoration. So, you don’t have to think only about the basic shades, but also about the entire color palette that they offer you.
Green + Pink
Green is on trend in 2023 and therefore it should not be missing from your decor. It can be of different types, but emerald green is at the top of preferences for this year. Emerald green can be easily combined with pink tones. Pink conveys well-being, happiness, and love, while green conveys freshness and rebirth. These tones help to create a romantic setting that combines tradition and modernism specially and harmoniously. They are a perfect combination as they are neither overpowering nor too washed out. Green helps to create a lively and fresh atmosphere, while pink adds the necessary amount of poetry, romance, and delicacy. You can opt for velvet tablecloths, which add extra elegance. Cutlery, plates, and napkins can also have these colors. In the spring you will often find this combination in nature, and surely you have noticed the special contrast that is usually created between the green leaves and the pink flowers. So, don’t hesitate to use this special combination, with which you can create a unique and original decoration.
Pale Pink + Purple + Grey

Pale pink and purple are specific shades of flowers that bloom during spring – so these shades will bring the magic and charm of spring to your wedding! But, if you want to add a color that gives a more classy look to the whole decoration, you can combine these two colors with shades of gray, which temper the chromatic range used, offering extra elegance.
Blue + Pink
Even though light blue (bleu ciel) and pink can be considered to be specific colors for christening parties, they can also be used for the wedding party. So, if you want to keep the spring atmosphere, but you don’t want to direct your attention to stronger shades, you can opt for this unique combination, which complements very well with the classic white elements (such as the wedding dress, the tablecloths, etc.).
Magenta + Navy blue
Magenta has been declared the color of the year 2023, so more and more couples want to include it in their wedding decor.

So, as strange as it may seem, you can combine magenta with navy blue, and the result will be really special! Of course, if you also want a third shade, you can opt for silver accents, which will enhance the main colors.
