Terracotta wedding colors are having a moment and we are here for it. This leading wheel color has been around for a few years and we love its warm hue and versatility. One of the most popular hues is the medium terracotta, but it goes all the way from dusty to bright terracotta. To create a sense of balance, you must pair medium and brighter shades of hues. And for romance, add some blush, marigold, and mauve. To blend these colors, we have curated the methods from venue decor to bouquets, centerpieces, attires, and more. Need ideas?
