Dreaming about your wedding is one thing; planning it is another. From wedding dresses to cakes and tuxedos to flowers – every aspect of your wedding must be carefully planned to “fall in place” on the big day! If you’ve been to one wedding or several, you probably realise the importance of wedding colours. Everything about the wedding is planned according the colours the bride chooses. So, here’s a quick guide to help you plan your wedding colours.

Choose the Right Colours for Your Wedding Dresses

Many brides use their favourite colours for their wedding dresses – pink, red, fuchsia, burgundy, plum, mauve, purple, or blue. But before you choose colours, see if you can’t find some photos of various weddings from the past. Look at a variety of colour patterns and combinations before making your choice. You might find colours that you like much better than your usual favourites.

Consider how the colours of your wedding dresses will look with other colorful items once it is all put together for the big wedding day. The bridesmaid dresses will be matched with flowers, tuxedos, mother of the bride dresses, flower girl dresses, accessories, and even the reception decor.

Wedding Dresses with a Touch of Colour

A growing trend is to add a touch of colour to the bride’s wedding gown. This is perfect for the bride who wants more than the traditional wedding gown. Some brides have colour sprinkled throughout their wedding gown with embroidery. The gorgeous embroidery patterns come to life on the wedding dress when colour highlights are added. These are usually available in a variety of colours painted on an ivory white wedding gown.

Test Wedding Colour Combinations

Don’t be afraid to match unusual colours before making your choice. Some colour combinations might surprise you. For example, not many would choose bright peach, bright yellow and white, but these are actually beautiful when coordinated together in wedding flower arrangements with yellow dresses! Try out a variety of combinations to find the right wedding colours for you.

Choose Colours that Complement You

It’s your special day. Choose colours that complement your hair and skin tone. You’ll want colours that make you look wonderful on your wedding day. If you normally look great in red, then you’ll probably look fantastic amidst red decor and red bridesmaid dresses. Maybe you can even add some red embroidery colours to your wedding gown. Whatever colour suits you should work fine for the wedding.

Other Considerations

Other things to consider before choosing your wedding colours include the colours of the church or building where the wedding will be held as well as the reception hall, the types of flowers available for that time of year (if using real ones), and the availability of wedding dresses in those colours.

Once you choose colours for your wedding dresses and flowers, you’re ready to start planning the wedding. To save time, you can find a wide variety of wedding dresses, bridesmaid dresses, and even prom dresses online. Be sure to choose the colours you love. After all, it is your special day!
