How To Perfect Your Wedding’s Colour Scheme

Although some people might not find a colour scheme an important part of the wedding, it truly is. 

Having a perfected colour scheme will not only set the tone and the atmosphere, but it will also help your wedding stand out among the rest. While some weddings involve spontaneous and mismatched colours schemes, one that uses a strict and meaningful colour scheme will be more beautiful and romantic (which is exactly what a wedding should be). 

Here is how to perfect your wedding’s colour scheme, even down to the fine details.


Consider the setting

Every wedding party will desire a certain location for the big day. For some, it might be a traditional church in the winter. For others, it might be an intimate wedding on the beach. Either way, considering the setting will help you choose and perfect your colour scheme.

For instance, you might not consider dark reds and greens at a summer wedding on the beach. But, you would for a winter wedding.

Think about the location and what atmosphere you want to create that will help you choose a colour palette. From there, you can choose the specific colours and tones for the wedding.

Think about the fine details

Every single thing should be thought about if you want to perfect to colour scheme at a wedding. The finer details should complement the main colour scheme and enhance it. 

For example, if you are going with a muted purple and cream colour scheme, then you should consider getting wedding cravats that match the colour scheme as well as napkins for the table. These small details will stand out and perfect your colour scheme. 


Go for colours that you love

Although you might think you need to use certain colours for your wedding because they are ‘traditional’ and ‘conforming’, you should always choose colours that you love and make you feel good. At the end of the day, it is your day and it should be filled with things that you love.

No matter if you love vibrant blues or dark blacks, you should choose colours that represent you and your love for one another.

Don’t overthink it as it will make things messy

It is common to overthink every detail of a wedding. Wedding planning will be a lot more stressful if you overthink everything as it will cause you to try perfect every small detail. While it would be wonderful to get everything perfect, it just isn’t possible. If you want to perfect your details, then it is best to not overthink them, especially the colour scheme.


The more you think about the colour scheme, the more colours and tones you will want to add. The simpler it is, the more satisfied you will be when the big day comes around. Opting for two or three colours is plentiful. If you overthink the scheme, then you might end up choosing way too many colours and end up with a mismatched and clashing design.
