How to Choose your wedding colours is quite often the first and most important decision when planning your wedding.
The colour you choose can often determine the theme for the whole wedding
There are a number of things you can consider when choosing your wedding colour
The seasons is one of the easiest ways to choose your wedding colours and can often make choosing decor e.g. flowers easier as these colours are easily accessible this time of year
Spring – pale pink, mint green, lavendar,
Summer – yellow, orange, fuschia,
Autumn – brown, orange, burgundy,
Winter – sky blue, red, green, gold, silver,
Some couples choose to go with something as simple as their favourite colour for their wedding theme. (this is exactly what I did)
Things to consider
1: Are you going to be able to match everything to your colour? I often have couples who want their wedding stationery to match their colour exactly. This is often very difficult if it is a very specific shade of a colour. They sometimes bring a colour swatch of their bridesmaid dresses to me but we often have to go with best fit, as card and ribbon are only available in certain colours
2: Bridesmaids. What are your bridesmaids going to look like wearing that colour.
3: Groom and groomsmen – Are your men willing to wear pink for example
