At Little Wedding Extras, we're here to take "can't" out of your wedding planning vocabulary. In this case, "You can't use that color at that time of the year." Vibrant, yet tranquil, turquoise is a favorite color for wedding festivities, but more often than not it's relegated to a warm-weather wedding palette. It's more than OK to use whatever colors you want whenever you want to use them, but here are just a few ideas to create a seasonal color scheme regardless of your wedding date.
Turquoise, Forest, White and Silver
Reminiscent of snow dusted pine trees against a clear, blue sky, this palette feels just right for a ski lodge wedding trimmed in greenery garland and glittering candles.
Turquoise, Rose Gold, Cream and Blush
Delicate neutrals soften the striking combination. Consider fluffy ostrich plumes arranged in rose gold vases to bring this vision to life.
Turquoise, Ice Blue, Silver and Charcoal
This icicle-inspired scheme invites creative, nostalgic details. Try an old pair of figure skates next to your guest book or keepsake ornaments in the centerpieces to create a homey, personal feeling on your special day.
Turquoise, Winterberry, Bordeaux and Gold
Stunning, sophisticated and full of holiday sparkle, this one may have been inspired by our own website and favorite colors.

This inspiration board boasts a south of the border fiesta flair, but this punchy palette says party in any language.
Turquoise, Rose Gold, Flamingo and Navy
We're suckers for rose gold around here, and whether you use turquoise as a focal color or an accent to the popular pink and navy combination, this one says sophisticated AND fun.
Turquoise, Fuchsia, Royal and Plum
We'd call this mix of bright jewel tones gorgeous for any season, but the rich colors seem just right for a summer night soiree!
Turquoise, Sherbet, Copper and Jade
Turquoise isn't unexpected during the heat of summer, but the use of warm copper as a metallic accent makes this one look like a late summer beach sunset.
Turquoise, Plum, Rust and Gold
Borrowing from the traditional secondary triad of green-purple-orange, we've adjusted the typical colors to give you an idea that blends with all types of decorative feels.
Turquoise, Copper, Scarlet and Goldenrod
Blue and orange complement each other on the color wheel, and the less-expected use of copper in lieu of gold gives this pretty palette a fun twist on the traditional.
Turquoise, Teal, Midnight and Bronze
Don't get us wrong: We LOVE gold, but swapping it for bronze gives this monochromatic color scheme a rich and sophisticated feel.
Turquoise, Cognac, Camel and Khaki
The perfect palette for an equestrian or western vibe, try decorating with wood and leather elements, perhaps with some dried naturals instead of fresh flowers.
These are just a few of the ways to incorporate this scintillating shade at any time of the year. Of course, the best way to use any color is exactly how YOU want it.
