If you are a bride-to-be you have undoubtedly started thinking of ideas for how you want your wedding day to look. Initially, it can feel overwhelming, particularly if you have started with a black canvas.

Picking your wedding palette isn’t exactly as easy as choosing your two favourite colours and making them the foundation for every wedding detail. You should start by nailing down your general weddings aesthetic and then follow the below tips to your perfect wedding.


  1. Get Inspired by Your Setting

Have a colour palette in mind as you start your venue search. Think about what colours you’d like to use, and use the space to help you come up with your colour scheme. The colours of your reception space and its surroundings can spark an idea.



  1. Find shades that match your favourite flowers

Flowers are the central decor feature of most weddings. From aisle decorations to wedding bouquets to table centrepieces, they’ll be surrounding you at both your ceremony and reception.

  1. Think Seasonally

Just like your wardrobe, your wedding colour scheme can be inspired by the time of year you’re saying “I do.” Rosy pink is perfect for spring, while a brighter coral is a summer staple. For fall, rich fuchsia pairs well with other jewel tones, and blush and silver are a pretty wintry combo.



  1. Set the Mood on your wedding day

Your wedding colours can also help create a vibe for your wedding day. If you’re going for a lot of drama, then a dark or jewel tone palette, like ruby red and black or emerald and gold, is a better choice than, say, light pastels. Think about the style and atmosphere you want to have, whether it’s relaxed or nostalgic, and what colors put you in that mindset.

  1. Look for colours you already love

The colours that inspire your home décor are ones you know you can live with for a long time. Open your closet. Use the colours you are drawn to as a starting point.
