The colour scheme for your wedding can have a huge impact on the entire atmosphere of the day, so it’s important to think carefully about the scheme, to ensure it fits with the day, the venue and your personality. Here are our top tips for selecting the right colour scheme for you.

Start With What You Know
If you’ve had the same favourite colour since you were a child, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t be able to incorporate it into your wedding. Sit down with your partner and discuss your favourite colours and come up with a shortlist which you both love.

Consider Your Venue
Having said that you will be able to incorporate your favourite colours, you mustn’t underestimate the importance of the venue. If you want your wedding photos to look their best, try to co-ordinate as much as possible. Whilst you can still be a little creative, if you’re in an ornate, rustic building, having a neon green colour scheme may not work. It’s also worth considering the church and reception location, and the option of having a different colour scheme for each.

How Many Colours?
The colour palette for a wedding can generally include between two and five colours. However, if you’re including five it is recommended to choose colours which are closely related, to avoid the wedding having a confused appearance. Having two colours, such as pink and brown, can be very attractive; use them in uneven amounts - one as a base with smaller touches of a second, brighter colour.

Consider Your Personality
Did you know that the colour you choose can say a lot about your personality? Red reflects passion and warmth whereas orange and yellow are optimistic and positive – which will surely put you in good stead for the years to come in your marriage. On the other hand, the colour green carries connotations of rebirth and growth, perfect for starting a new life together.
