Choosing the perfect quince color scheme for your party is going to be one of the top three planning decisions you will make. The quinceanera color palette will need to compliment with both the theme and the dress. Then you have to consider the colors that you are drawn to in the decision. Perhaps you you love how purple and black look together, or maybe you have this special connection with hot pink and yellow. Or you might be drawn to a more traditional white and soft pink princess inspired combination.
Combining Colors With Your Quinceanera Theme
A quinceanera color scheme usually combines 2-3 colors to coordinate with your overall theme (get our Top 30 Theme Ideas here). There are some themes that would require you to be extremely more colorful, often making use of 4, 5, or possibly more colors. Take the Hacienda, Fiesta, Candyland, or Alice In Wonderland themes for example, which all require several colors to make the theme come to life.
If you prefer to go with a very simple and elegant scheme, simply pair your main color idea with white. If you are looking for a more dramatic scheme, then pair up your favorite color with black instead. Gold and silver colors complement main color choices very well. White and yellow look great paired together with a hint of gold, while salmon and grey colors tend to stand out more with some touches of silver in the scheme.
When it comes to the quince colors, the only rule is there are no rules when it comes to designing the color combination. Perhaps you prefer neutral colors like cream, brown, or tan. Although not considered traditional quinceanera colors, if you like them, you can make it into an elegant color scheme. This is your party and a chance to really let your inner creative side shine.
The Monochromatic or Single Color Quinceanera
There are times that you may want just a single color for your quince theme. For traditional all-white parties, invite guests to wear only white to help contribute to the theme. A Red Roses theme calls for an abundance of red, so it is perfectly fine if you decide to just make everything at the party a single color. Using various shades of the selected color for a monochromatic color scheme is another option.
One challenge in using just one color is coordinating the dresses, party supplies, and decorations to match. You might then decide to bring in a second color to complement or contrast for variety.
Two Color Quince Schemes
For more variety, go for a quinceanera color scheme that utilizes two colors. The traditional black and white scheme is extremely popular and very classy when carried through in the dresses, suits, decorations, and favors. For more vibrancy, focus on on any of these two color combinations:
- baby blue/white
- lime green/turquoise
Three Color Quinceanera Palettes
Themes with three different colors opens up so many unique possibilities. Now you can mix and match unique colors and make the theme really your own. Many times it is that third color that really ties in the entire theme and makes everything work.
Black, Gold, and Ivory
Add gold to black and ivory and you are transferred to the roaring 20s for an art deco or Great Gatsby party theme. Don’t forget the pearls, lace and of course feathers!
Blue, Silver, and White
This traditional color combination works for the Fairy Tail, Polka Dot, or Under the Stars themes. One way you could go is to choose a pretty white dress, grey chambelanes suits, and blue damas dresses.
Robin’s Egg Blue, White, and Silver
Change the shade of blue and you now have the perfect combination for a Breakfast at Tiffany’s theme or elegant Paris theme.
Deep Purple, Green, and Gold

Coral, Gold, and White
This versatile color combination is used for many popular themes like Miami Nights, Cancun, Beach, and Old Hollywood. The reason this palette works so well is the coral color contrasts white, and the gold adds that perfect amount of sparkle.
Light Purple, Bright Purple, and Deep Purple
Different shades of the same color are a great way to make up your own unique color scheme. This is true of any color – not just purple. For the Royalty theme, the shades of purple work perfectly.
Sea Green, Peach, and Turquoise
A great color combination for a Beach or Under The Sea theme. The blues and the greens represents the water of the ocean, the peach is the sand. You can also add in the color white or little touches of silver.
