Planning the details for your wedding day starts with your wedding colours. The colours you choose will help narrow down other elements in the wedding, such as decorations, props, bridesmaids dresses and even your very own wedding dress.
So what colour scheme do you want to go for? We’re exploring some popular colour scheme options for you (with matching wedding invitations free to download!), from monochromatic colours to neutrals and colourful combinations.
Purples and Greens
With purples as your primary wedding colour, this scheme creates a mood of extravagance, mystery and fantasy. Shades of purple are one of the most commonly seen colours in nature, so greens make the perfect secondary colour to this palette. As a prominent colour family, purple comes in many versatile shades, from pale to dark, such as eggplant, plum, orchid, lilac, etc.
The Bare Minimum
Neutrals look very elegant and romantic and fit into just about any wedding theme. From a rustic-style wedding to a classically themed wedding, tones like beiges, creams, browns and whites work perfectly well to help make the wedding stand out and not get too overwhelming.
Warm & Earthy Tones
If you opt for a minimalist look, this colour palette is an excellent choice. Browns and greens with a dash of pastel pink make any wedding feel warm, playful and welcoming. Not only are these earthy tones great for indoors, but they’re also beautiful for outdoor weddings as well. The pink undertone adds that pop to the overall scheme, making this palette best for dusk and rosy floral weddings.
The Colours of Spring
This colour scheme has been an ultra-trendy palette for weddings in the past years. With the endless choice of shades and versatility, these colours are easily blendable with one another and with most other shades. For example, pinks and greens look great when paired with yellow hues. This mix of vibrant and fresh colours is enough to be eye-catching and unique, yet it is not too striking of a difference to seem mismatched. These five colours create a gorgeous springtime wedding palette.
