Things to Consider When Choosing Your Wedding Colors

Updated: Feb 7

Choosing your wedding colors isn't as easy as telling someone your favorite color. There are a lot of things to think about before you officially decide. Take these things in to consideration before you officially decide on your color palette.

Take a Look at Your Venue

When you start your search for the perfect wedding venue, try to nail down your colors before walking in. If you are set on a certain venue and you feel like your colors do not match, you might want to consider changing your colors a bit. In a way you will have to decide if finding the perfect venue or having the color palette is more important if they do not go well together.

What Season is Your Wedding In

Similar to how we wear more subtle colors in the winter and fall and more bold colors in spring and summer is similar to picking which colors you want for your wedding depending on which season it is going to be in. Fuchsia pink is a common spring color and lighter pastels are more typical for a winter wedding. After all, you can really use any color you would like to use no matter the season. In this case you may just want to think about which textures you would like to use.

The Mood

If you want your wedding to have a more dramatic feel, colors like ruby red, gold, black, or emerald green may do the trick. A more laid back wedding may have lighter pastel colors instead.

Choose Colors You Love

Ultimately, you want to choose a wedding color that you absolutely love. You probably don't want to pick colors that you have never loved in your life. This way you can use leftover decorations and still love the colors after the wedding.

Look at the Color Wheel

If you have one color in mind but can't decide which color you should pair with it you may want to take a look at a color wheel. Typically, colors on opposite sides of the color wheel go well together. For example coral and turquoise pair well together and they are on opposite sides of the color wheel. One way to decide on two different colors is to pick your bold color and then pair it with more of a neutral color.

No matter what colors you decide, make sure it fits you and your spouse. Be sure it is something you two are going to look back on and love forever. After all, this day is all about the two of you!
