How Do I Pick Colors for My Wedding?


What season are you having your wedding in? Are you having a summer wedding or a winter wedding? Or, are you have a fall wedding or a spring wedding? Each season has its own color palette, with a variety of vibrant colors. As seasons change, the colors start to change with them.

In the winter months, darker shades of blues, reds, and greens are the most popular and fit in the best.

In the spring, pastel colors go perfectly with the season. These colors include light pinks, purples, and yellows. All of the lighter colors accent the season perfectly. They say spring showers bring May flowers, but it also brings so many beautiful spring wedding colors as well!

In the hottest months of all, during the summer, bright vibrant colors are the best shades to include in your wedding. These colors include pinks, blues, and greens as well.

Fall wedding colors are endless and range from colors like orange, red, bronze-green, and purple. All of these colors help to create a stunning natural background for outdoor weddings.

While the different seasons are just a guide and offer color inspiration in helping you choose your wedding colors. However, it can be fun to design your wedding color scheme around seasons!

What Colors Look Good Together

It is important to think about the colors that complement each other. It is almost like making sure things match and color coordinate. Color coordinating can be really fun, but also overwhelming. While the colors do not have to match exactly, it is a good idea to find a happy medium.

Venue Colors & Style

Every venue has its own color and style, so keep this in mind. There are so many different venue styles, and adding your own flare to it can be exciting. We suggest thinking about the indoor and outdoor colors of your wedding venue. If the venue is all-white, you can stick with a classic all-white theme, or add pops of colors to enhance how beautiful the venue is.

Moods of the Colors
