5 Tips For Choosing Your Wedding Colour Theme

Do you need to inject a little colour into your wedding planning?  It’s time to choose your wedding hues.

According to Forbes, white and ivory are chosen by 47% of couples but why limit yourself to the traditional? Throw on your rose-tinted spectacles and take a look at our 5 top tips to find your perfect colour theme.

1. Get Inspiration From Your Location

Your location could serve up the perfect colour theme inspiration. Are you getting married in a dramatic landscape? Are there rolling valleys of emerald green? You could reflect the colour, enhance it or go wild and contrast it. Next, take a look at the colours inside the venue. The warmth of a converted barn might lead you to yellow and orange palettes. It works both ways though, check there isn’t a colour that’s a definite no. You don’t want your bridesmaids dresses to clash with the carpet.

2. Shake On Some Seasonality

Seasonality can add some great personality to your colours. If you’ve picked your favourite time of year then all the more reason to take note. Nature is your friend, think about what is happening at that time of year. Delicate pastel blooms in Spring. The warm oranges and golds in the Autumn trees. A seasonally-themed wedding creates a wonderfully natural feel.

3. Be True To Yourself

If you’ve got a favourite colour then why not incorporate it? Think about what your wedding colours say about you. Do they reflect your personality? You should love the colours at your wedding, and they should show your style. Are you modern, traditional or a little quirky? Do you like to stand out from the crowd or blend in? The colour palette will help set the mood for the day so make sure it’s true to who you are.

4. Do Your Homework

Once you’ve chosen some colours you like then make sure they’re going to work. Take a look at a colour wheel for complimentary colours. You can pair warm and cool opposites or choose similar colours that share the same undertones. Next, make sure you can you get what you need in your chosen colours? Think about bridesmaids dresses, flowers and decorations. No colour is impossible, but the less common could be trickier to find. Do your homework before you make your final decision.

5. Paint The Picture

There is nothing more fun than setting up a Pinterest board of wedding colours. Let your imagination run wild and pin until your heart’s content. What better way to group all those bridal magazine clippings and random images from internet searches. Remember to enjoy the process of choosing your colour theme. As long as you love your colours, anything goes. Whether you’re traditional or want to embrace Pantone's colour of the year for 2018 – Ultra Violet purple – we’re behind you.
