How to Pick Your Wedding Colors

For better or worse, planning a wedding is all about the details. From the wording on your invitations to the kind of cake you serve, your personal style will be reflected through how you choose and orchestrate all these details.

One of the first places most brides get stuck is in picking out wedding colors. There are countless colors to choose from and it can be bewildering to narrow them all down to just two or three.

It doesn’t have to be excruciating, however, and can in fact be an exciting way to start planning your wedding. Here are some tips to help you get started:

  • Consider the season. Each season carries its own connotation, so this can often be an easy place to start. Winter is usually associated with bold, vibrant colors such as scarlet, black, and silver. Spring often goes along with soft pastels, in hues like pink, lavender, and butter yellow. Summer is known for bright lively colors and is a good season to experiment with vivacious shades such as purple, bright yellow, and green. Fall is often accompanied by more subdued colors, so think harvest colors such as orange, brown, and deep red.
  • Highlight your favorite color. A great way to help your favorite color stand out is to highlight it among neutrals. For example, you could have your bridesmaids wear dresses in neutral colors accentuated with a sash in your favorite color.
  • Be complementary. Colors that sit opposite each other on the color wheel usually make terrific pairings.
  • Pick three colors at most. One to two colors is ideal, but pick no more than three colors or you could risk having your wedding look uncoordinated. If you crave a little more variation, you can try using multiple shades of the same color family. For instance, if blue is one of your wedding colors, we can have your bridesmaids wear light blue and have dark blue tablecloths.
