10 happy-making Living Coral wedding hits

(This is not a paid for or sponsored post.)

It was crowned Pantone’s Colour of the Year – Living Coral – and I can’t think of a juicier way to inject bright flashes of colour into your Big Day. Here are my favourite ‘ok coral’ ways to work it into your wedding… Oh, and one of them is gin!

1. A coral wedding dress


Have you ever seen such a ‘WOW’ wedding dress? Cascading coral tulle create an insta-worthy gown combining a fitted bodice with a runaway-train skirt. I bet she felt amazing…

2. Coral pumps

Once the strappies start to hurt (and they will) imagine replacing them with these little crystal-studded beauties to recharge your dancing feet.
Intellexual Design Coral Swarovski Rhinestone Custom Converse, £142.18


3. A coral kimono

Getting ready with your bride tribe is the best way to begin the biggest day of your life. How about decking them out in matching coral coloured silky robes. These ones can be personalised too.
Maysilk Bridesmaid Robe, £15.79


4. A coral floral hair comb

Get your florist to create a hair comb using the same flowers as in your bouquet or opt for a fabulous fake like this one featuring silk hydrangeas and roses surrounded by green foliage and pink asparagus ferns. So pretty.

, £38


5. A coral lipstick

While orange is definitely a wear-if-you-dare colour, coral is a softer, much more flattering shade. You can forget about coral lip putting you in grab-a-granny territory too. Skip liner and paint it on using a slim brush or if you’d rather a more muted mouth, smudge it on with your fingers. What’s great about this lippy is it’s 10 hour-long lasting demi-matte formula.
Kiko Cosmetics Unlimited Stylo in Coral Red, £8.99


6. Coral confetti

Load up your flower girls and let them sprinkle you with coral confetti. This biodegradable mix is made from delphiniums and calendula so your vicar will bless you even more.
Shropshire Petals Orange Blossom Confetti, £12.75 for 1 litre


7. A coral mani

It’s the easiest way to weave living coral into your look, even if you just opt for your toes. If you’re honeymooning something sunny, this shade looks beyond amazing with a tan. Oh, and best of all it’ll stay put for around two weeks.
Sensationail Gel Nail Polish in Coral Sunset, £12.50


8. Coral ‘shoes’

Regular readers will know that I’m a sucker for a barefoot sandal. Obviously the time of year and location of your wedding determines whether you can go sans shoe. But if you’re getting married somewhere sunny, pleeeeeease get spliced in these beauties and send me a pic.
Fulyak Coral Hawaiian Flower Barefoot Sandals, £33.18


9. A coral bouquet

Such a simple bouquet but so, so beautiful. You could easily carry this arrangement through to button holes and centre pieces too.

10. Coral gin
This one’s gonna go down well with the whole wedding party. Fresh from the ceremony, forgo traditional bubbles for a coral coloured G&T instead. I personally recommend adding in Fever Tree Refreshingly Light Clementine Tonic Water along with ice. Cheers!
Aldi Seville Orange & Persian Lime Gin, £14.99

  • It’s such a sunny, happy colour. I love it but had never even considered it as a wedding shade. Now I’ve even googled where my H2B can get a coral tie. I love it!

  • The only thing orange about me is my skin tone after my tan trial! Add anything else and I’m a satsuma. But apart from skin, it’s a really flattering colour and one that I’ll wear a lot in Bali on my moon 😉

  • my absolute favourite colour for nails. and like you say, really really stunning on summer tanned skin. I’d definitely go for matching fingers and toes on my big day.

  • I love to introduce colour into the weddings that i help to organise. just a pop of pink, red or coral looks so pretty. I just styled bridesmaids in white dresses with coral coloured waist sashes and they looked great. i’ll keep an eye out for more ideas from you. i really like what i see on your site so far. Jo
