How to Choose Your Wedding Color Theme

Choosing your wedding color theme can be one of the most fun parts of your wedding planning, but it can also be overwhelming with all the options and ideas floating around out there. To make choosing your wedding color theme simple, you’ll need to first ask yourself some questions about the look and feel of the wedding day you’d like to achieve, like this one on how to choose your wedding color theme based on the color you want to stand out the most on your big day.

How to Choose Your Wedding Color Theme

The color of your wedding day can set the tone for an entire event. There’s a lot of pressure in choosing the perfect hue because it can affect everything from your stationery and clothes to the cake and flowers. Here are a few tips on how to choose your wedding color theme:

  1. Your wedding color theme should converge in harmony with the rest of the wedding venue

    Keep it simple – Don’t try to put too many colors together or you’ll end up with something that looks like a rainbow threw up all over it. Choosing one color and then playing with different shades and nuances is enough for most weddings.

  2. Consider what time of year it will be – If you’re getting married in summer, bright colors may not look good against the warm weather while earth tones might complement fall weddings beautifully.
  3. Pick a color that’s meaningful to both partners – It could be your favorite shade or the school you attended or the town you grew up in.
  4. Think about what you want to feel when you walk into each space – Is there anything calming? Something fun? An atmosphere of celebration?

Ways to Incorporate the Color as a Throughline for the Entire Wedding

The overall theme for a wedding can be complicated and sometimes costly. There are many ways to incorporate the color as a throughline for the entire wedding. The simplest way is by using flowers with your chosen colors, table settings, invitations, food, and cake. Just a touch of color can create a cohesive design from ceremony to reception. Another idea would be to have different color schemes throughout the day. One could have yellow at the ceremony, pink at dinner time, orange in between dinner and dancing time, etc. You could also use specific colors for different segments of the day such as gold for dinner or purple for dessert hour.
