Select Your Wedding Theme

Having a colour theme for your wedding can help bring together the various elements and create a unified look. If you’re trying to decide on a suitable colour theme for your wedding, then here are four practical tips to help you make your choice.

  1. Choose a wedding colour theme based on your favourite colour or flower.

    A good starting point for choosing a wedding colour theme is to look at whether you or your partner, have any favourite colours or flowers. If there’s a particular type of flower that you love, and would like to include in your bridal bouquet or in any other wedding flowers, then do check first that it’s in season when you’re getting married, otherwise, it could be tricky getting the flowers.

  2. Pick one main colour for your wedding theme.

    Don’t get carried away and pick too many colours for your theme. Ideally, it works best to have one main colour, such as blue, burgundy or pink, for the primary theme. If you want to have other shade tones too, then these can be combined, like pastel colours or red and pale pink, but too many strong colours can be confusing.

  3. Make sure your wedding colour theme will fit with the venues you’re using.

    Before you finalise your choice of colour theme for your wedding, make sure that it will work in the venues you’ve chosen for your ceremony or reception. For example, if the reception venue has curtains, carpets or wall colours that could clash with your chosen colour, it may not be a good choice.

  4. Choose a colour that will go well with the season in which you’re getting married.

    When you’re debating colour theme choices, don’t forget to think about the season in which you’re getting married. Although you don’t necessarily have to stick to this, many brides find that winter weddings work well with darker colour choices, such as purple, burgundy or deep green, whereas spring and summer weddings work well with brighter colours or pastel shades. If you want to use flowers that are in season, this is particularly important to consider, as yellow daffodils or red poinsettias are both seasonal flowers that aren’t available all year round.
