Blue. Yellow. Green. Blush. Beige. The list is endless. When planning your wedding, you want everything to be perfect. And that includes the colour palette.
Choosing the right colours for your wedding is a big deal. It’s the first thing people notice about your big day. It’s important to make sure you get it right if you want to leave an impression on your guests. There are many things to consider when choosing colours for your wedding, but don’t worry—it’s not as hard as it seems!
Here are some tips for choosing a colour palette that will suit your wedding:
Think about what colours mean to you and your partner.
What colours do you both love, or hate? What memories do they bring up when you see them? This is where you’ll want to get creative! For example, if one of you loves pink and purple (and hates green), then those colours should absolutely be included in your palette. But if you both love earth tones and browns, then maybe stick with those instead.
Consider The Location Of Your Wedding.
If you’re getting married in a place that has a distinct colour theme, then it makes sense to stick with those colours. But if you’re having an urban wedding, try incorporating different shades of grey or even using black and white as accents. It’s important to make sure that you select a palette that complements your venue. This will avoid too many colours fighting for attention and often means you can invest less in décor by making the most of what is already there.
Think About Your Theme.
You can choose colours based on the mood of your wedding. if you’re having an elegant affair with lots of floral decorations, consider using pinks and purples. if it’s going to be more casual and laid back, try oranges and yellows. if it’s going to be dark and moody then go with deep reds and blacks (but make sure they aren’t too dark). If there is no specific theme you can go with then just use whatever colour you want.
Let your Wedding Design Concept Guide You
It’s tempting to jump straight in and think about colours but the most natural palette will fall out of a solid design concept. As you search for inspiration, look for colours that you are consistently drawn to. Play around with different combinations and consider how they make you feel and whether they fit with your wedding day style.

Consider what will look good against your skin tone
No matter what colour scheme you choose, if it doesn’t look good against your skin tone then it won’t work well for you. Make sure that whatever colours you choose are flattering to both men and women so that everyone can feel comfortable wearing them on their big day!
Keep in mind that different shades can have different meanings.
For example, red symbolizes passion, orange is energetic and fun, yellow reminds us of sunshine and happiness, green can indicate nature-themed events like weddings outdoors under trees or grass (especially if there are pine needles involved), blue is calming and soothing… the list goes on! You might want to consider using these associations when putting together your colour palette: maybe pair red with yellow for a playful look that still conveys romance.
Choose one primary colours.
While it is very easy to get carried away with the array of options available, we get it. However, it is important to choose one colour as an accent colour. This colour ties all of the other ones together. It will be used sparingly throughout all parts of your wedding décor: table settings, bridesmaid dresses, flower arrangements, etcetera. This will help keep everything looking cohesive without being too matchy-match.
Well, there’s no one-size-fits-all approach when it comes to choosing colours for your wedding. Some people like bright, vibrant colours and others prefer softer pastels or earth tones. Either way works if it’s what makes sense for your relationship! The important thing is that you have some idea of what kind of colour scheme will work best with the theme and location of your ceremony or reception.
