Top 10 Bridesmaid Dresses & Wedding Colors Of 2013 (Part 1)
It's always difficult to decide which wedding colors you'd prefer for your big day. With the 2013 Spring & Summer wedding season just around the corner, now's a good time to look at some of the most popular colors this year.
It won't surprise you to hear that some of the classic 'favorites' like purples, grays and mints are still going to be hot wedding colors, but there are also some new, and perhaps surprising options to choose from too!
The good thing about 2013 is that there's something for everyone, regardless of if you prefer bright colors, or lighter hues. One surprise is that nude colors are starting to cross over from the catwalk and red carpet to our weddings, so expect to see muted browns and creams at a ceremony near you soon!
So brides, are you ready? Fasten your seatbelts, and let's get into our top 10 wedding colors of 2013:
Top 10 Wedding Colors In 2013
No wedding color list would be complete without purple! It's the color of royalty, elegance, and glamour. All elements that many brides would love at their wedding! As you may know, purple also goes really well with metallic colors, so there is an opportunity to match with silver, gold, and the like. It's also very common in wedding bouquets, so why not match your flowers and bridesmaid dresses for maximum impact?
Here's a purple inspiration board for you from our wedding colors Pinterest board:
Remember that purple bridesmaid dresses also look just great as you can see below:

Nude colors have been big on the red carpet and with designers, and with a vast choice of muted hues to choose from it's no surprise that this is becoming a popular wedding color choice for brides. Whether it's a mocha, dusky pink, or even beige; every bride can find a nude hue to suit her tastes. Beacuse these muted tones are masters of blending, it's a choice that'll never go out of style!
You know that OuterInner can make most of our bridesmaid dresses in many colors, so all you'll need to do is take a look to find a nude that you love too!
Spring and Summer are the most popular times for weddings, and so why not go with a bright, cheery yellow which is a great seasonal color, and guaranteed to put a smile on your guests' faces? Yellow adds a natural glow to the wearer, and looks great in wedding pictures. It's also one of the few wedding colors that really complements the natural Spring & Summer greens well.
See how great the yellow bridesmaid dresses look in this outdoor wedding:
4. Mint Green
Mint green alone is a beautiful fresh color, but who knew that it went so well with gold and indeed other colors like pink, blue, and beige? Because it lends itself so well to pairing with other colors it's also a great choice for many different elements of your wedding such as the invites, favors, and centerpieces.
Here are some examples of why mint is a great idea:
And of course you can find many green bridesmaid dresses at OuterInner, like this pretty style:

If you're Asian then red at weddings won't be strange at all, as it's a traditionally lucky and prestigious color. But for those from other parts of the world you may wonder how to integrate this vibrant color into your day. First of all, red pairs very well with white, and black; both wedding colors that we're sure to see at most weddings (suits, wedding gown etc). Look at this gorgeous picture where the red bridesmaid dresses really 'frame' the bride so well to see what I mean:
It's worth mentioning that of course red is commonly used for nails and lips, and why not? But you should also consider using this color for your bridesmaid dresses, and also in your wedding bouquets (after all, how romantic are red roses?).
