I didn’t use coral – but I absolutely love it. I thought it might be too hard to match (since it’s that in-between color of orange and pink).

Here are some invitations – you may want to consider adding grey to your palette – just to make your invitations easier to read (if you have a darker color) and use yellow and coral to do decoration with since text may be too light to read in those colors.

Ahh I got so excited when I saw this post! my wedding is coral and a soft yellow!! I have yet to see another wedding that mixes these colours so it’s so hard to find inspiration!

Our wedding invitations are from weddingpaperdivas.com and we selected a pale yellow orchid invitation. I love that site though because you can customize the colours so if you wanted a coral invitation you could have one 🙂


I will agree with camrie though that coral is impossible to match anything to! The guys are wearing buttercup vests because the colour coral we are using (cantaloupe from morilee) for the bridesmaid dresses literally matches nothing. All our flowers are artificial real touch ones because it was way too hard to find real flowers that worked. So if you really want coral I would use it as an accent colour and use yellow as your main colour. It will make your life so much easier lol.

If you want any other ideas about how to use coral/yellow just ask because I’m 2 months out from my wedding so I have most decor figured out 🙂

I didn’t use coral but what you do about invitations should depend on the formality of your wedding. If you are having a formal wedding, your invites should be white or ecru with a sedate colored ink such as black (most traditional), charcoal, navy, eggplant, etc. If you are having a less formal wedding then you can incorporate more color (some of the above options are beautiful). If you are having a beachy wedding you could use a coral motif throughout (the animal, not just the color). Since corals can vary from more pink to more orange you might want to pick one coral element first and work to match that as best as possible throughout. For example you could pick your Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses and then bring that swatch when you pick your invitations, etc.

i used coral, peach, ivory,white and gold. i <3 coral, but also found it hard to match. my invitations were ivory and gold and though (but also wedding paper divas–i’m a fan!). i tried hard to find coral Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses, i ended up going w peach bc everything in my girl’s budget was too pink.

I’m using a very similar color called guava.  Ours are having big guava and yellow flowers with pale green leaves as a border (kinda hard to describe, and I don’t have a pic), then a border of green, then a border of guava, then yellow paper on which the invite is printed. Sorry if this post is more confusing than it is help :/
