Choosing wedding colours seem quite simple when brides and grooms already know what
colours they want. However, it can still be a little daunting, as these wedding colours will set the
mood and stage for the entire look and feel. Not to mention, they will be forever documented in
your wedding album, site and photos. No pressure!
But here are a few tips and brainstorming ideas to help you push through those obstacles and to
narrow down the colour or colours of your dream wedding.
1. Consider your wedding date
Your wedding day may have a huge impact on your colour choices. Living in Canada, we are
blessed with four seasons, and these seasons have their specific seasonal colour palettes. Select a
season and you may narrow down to a few colour options you like in that seasonal palette.
The venue of your choice will also guide you to choosing your wedding colours. The general
look and feel of the building and its interior and exterior environments such as the walls, carpets
or flooring, decorations, and landscape will help to inspire your colour choices or compete with
your colour choices. If that happens, there is nothing wrong having slightly different colour
schemes for your different venues. Use the same colour to tie in both venues.
Here is an example from our spring wedding featuring Roselie and Michael. The colours were
the warm neutral whites, pink and coral pastels along with soft blues. These colours went very
well with the venue’s interior space and exterior environment.
