Create Your Wedding Hue-niverse

Turn to the color wheel to evoke special feelings on your wedding day!

Picking a color palette for your big day is tantamount to deciding on the overall feel of your celebration. Once you’ve picked a color or palette, the rest will follow—your venue and table decorations, your cake design, your flowers, your invitation motif, and most importantly, your bridal entourage dresses. Some couples’ colors are inspired by the season of their wedding, while others pick hues that are close to their heart (one from the guy, the other from the girl). What most couples don’t realize is that the tints they choose reflect their personalities and ultimately set the tone for the entire wedding.

A few more color pointers to keep in mind:

  • Stick to a maximum of three colors to play with. Set one as the main color, and then use the other two as accent and supporting hues!
  • Go for opposites—cool and warm or saturated and neutral.
  • Build a palette in the same color family such as different shades of pink and red. You can assign the darker tints to the older members of your entourage, and go lighter for your flower girls and junior bridesmaids.
  • Pastel shades work best for morning or outdoor weddings.
  • Pick a dark or jewel tone palette if you’re going for something dramatic!
