Wedding Colors – Wedding Color Scheme Ideas

When it comes to selecting your wedding color scheme, you’re limited only by your creativity. There are many factors that come into play, such as your favorite colors, the time of year your wedding will be held, whether your wedding is outdoors or indoors, and the theme your wedding is centered around. Here are some ideas to get you thinking about the colors you want incorporated into your special day!

White Wedding Colors

White is the most classic of all color combinations for a wedding and is suited to any location – indoor or outdoors. White table linen, napkins and decorations complement the bride’s dress. The groom can choose to wear white himself or stick to black. Sheer white curtains hiding twinkling white lights and the use of broad white ribbon are some of the most beautiful ways to decorate for a white wedding. A little color mixed in with white also produces beautiful results.

Pink and Green

Pink and green is perfect for a spring or summer wedding. Think vibrant, plentiful greenery and soft pink roses. Pastels are perfect for this color scheme. Try pink and green balloons and streamers, as well as table centerpieces that feature lots of green foliage and pink blossoms. Carry the color scheme into the bridal bouquet with rich greenery and preferably, pink roses. The result is soft, natural and romantic!

All Pink

An all pink color scheme screams femininity and romance. You can use the same shade of pink for all your decorations and accessories, or add interest with all different shades of pink.

Light Pink

Burgundy and Emerald

Rich jewel tones such as burgundy and emerald are contrasting colors that work especially well for a winter wedding. This color scheme is ideal for a Christmas themed wedding and can be echoed with floral arrangements like red roses, holly berries, poinsettia and more.

Navy and Silver This is another winter color scheme that invokes a frosty, luxurious feeling. Try a navy tablecloth accented with silver snowflakes for a winter wonderland look. Use navy and silver balloons and streamers, and accent tables with floating candle bowls featuring navy and silver candles.

Shades of Purple Purple, especially lighter shades, is perfect for spring. Try lilacs and lavender in your floral arrangements, and go with balloons and streamers in a variety of shades from pale to dark.

Red and Black If you’re looking for a striking gothic look, try red and black. This is a good color scheme for winter and perfect for an unconventional couple seeking something a little different. Go with deep red roses and lots of black lace adornments for a romantic sophistication.

Sunny Yellow On the other end of the spectrum lies yellow. An excellent choice for spring, yellow can add a beautiful sunny touch to any celebration.

Ocean Tones Shades of turquoise accented with sandy tones is the perfect choice for a beach themed wedding.  Accent tables with bowls filled with sand, shells, and turquoise candles. Use turquoise and beige streamers and balloons to invoke a beachy feeling.
