How to Choose Wedding Color Combination?

Reception, flowers, church, wedding dress, music, decorations, and wedding colour. All you need is a bit of organization to accomplish all of these. Start with wedding colour theme selection.

Choosing a wedding color is simple. Simply choose a primary color and secondary colors. Okay, if it’s still unclear – here’s what you should do to finally decide which color to choose.

Think of all the colours that appeal to you. List them down. You may probably have written several colours already.

Now, consider the time or season you are getting married. If it is winter, then dark colours such as burgundies and dark purples are perfect. For summer and spring wedding, bright colours such as yellow and orange are good. Pastel colors fit as well. For Christmas themed wedding – green, silver, white or red can be used. Browns, reds, yellows, and burnt oranges are for fall wedding as they are the colours of the harvest time.

Pick the colour from your list that matches the season of your wedding date.

Then, choose 2 secondary colours. It helps to look at the colour wheel to know which colours match.

Still Can’t Decide Your Wedding Colour?

If you still find it difficult to choose the colours of your wedding, then you have 2 places to go: the wedding boutique and the ramp. Look at flower arrangements to see which colours look great together. You can also ask for flower arrangers to suggest colour combinations. Or ask a clerk which colours go perfectly with the dress. The bridesmaids dress can also be a source of your wedding colour.

Ramp suggests designs and colours straight from the designers. Okay, you don’t have access to “fashion exhibitions”. Look at magazines. You can definitely find unique and elegant wedding colours there.

More Colourful Inspirations

Another place to find a good colour combination is the butterfly garden. Why? You can never find the most amazing and inspiring colour combinations anywhere in the world than from butterflies. Or, if there are no butterfly gardens near you – the encyclopedia will show you every single butterfly species known to man. Okay, no encyclopedia. Search the web. The point is, find inspiration from nature and you can surely pick one up instantly.

There are other ways to find a good colour for your wedding. One of these is watching sports. Now, grooms will love this part. Search for the different colour combinations of each team. Then, pick one that you are comfortable with.

There are also popular wedding colour combinations you want to adapt. These are: soft pink and brown, pink and green, hot pink and black, fuchsia and lime green, and fuchsia and orange.

Colour Tip

If you have already chosen your wedding color, avoid accenting too much black. Though black is elegant and very formal, too much of it may look like a funeral.
