Yes, planning a wedding can be overwhelming, but don’t let something as simple as choosing your wedding colour palette stress you out! Take a breather and let us guide you on how to choose your wedding colours.
Think about the season that you’re getting married in and let this be a guide for your wedding colour palette. Dramatic jewel tones such as emerald green, marsala red and deep purple work perfectly for weddings in colder months, whereas your brights and blush colours are generally considered for summer-time celebrations. With that said, there is no rule that says you can’t have a blush winter wedding!
Consider Your Venue
Visualize your wedding venue and its surroundings and let this guide you on how to choose your wedding colours. If your venue tends to be quite neutral in terms of wooden finishes or a beautiful blank canvas, consider yourself lucky! However, if your venue is already decorated, be sure to choose colours that won’t clash with it.
Do Your Research
Find inspiration everywhere! From magazines to Pinterest and even a trip to an art gallery, inspiration is at your fingertips. Research complimentary colours and don’t be shy to rely on your wedding planner, if you’re making use of one.
Always be true to yourself and your wedding day should be no exception. Choose colours that you love as a couple, not just because they’re trending at the moment or because it’s Pantone’s colour of the year. So, choose what you love (and what flatters you) and the rest will fall into place.
Don’t Overthink It
Yes, your wedding colours are important, but don’t let it turn you into a bridezilla! You really don’t need the same shade of pink in your flowers, table runners and bridesmaids dresses – trust us, no one will even notice. Use your colour palette as a guideline instead of a rule and remember to enjoy the process!
