Some color pairings showcase classic wedding day elegance, like royal blue and gold. Deep blue decor stands out by the ocean, in a garden wedding ceremony or a grand ballroom. Gold wedding decorations vary with the use of gold foil accents, jewelry, centerpiece accessories or even flower arrangement colors. Most importantly, both of these wedding colors pick up the natural light of an early evening wedding, creating a romantic glow throughout an indoor or outdoor venue.
