Choose your wedding colors to best complement your vision


They are everywhere! Splashed across your cake, covering your flowers, clinging to your décor, and even covering your bridesmaids, your wedding colors will be a prominent feature of your big day. They play an important role in just about every aspect of your wedding. They complement your venue, adorn your bridal party, and even your flowers bring your colors to attention. Your colors will come together to complete your wedding vision.

So, what colors would be best for your big day? There are plenty to choose from, but only the perfect colors will be right for such an important day. Now all you must do is decide which colors are perfect for you and your partner’s visions.

Here at Rose Petal Events, we enjoy the experience of making a couple’s dream wedding come true. That is why we have put together a few tips to help you choose your wedding colors so that they best complement your vision. So, be sure to continue reading for some great insight:

  • Picking the perfect colors. There are so many shades of just one base color, and there are plenty of base colors. So, finding a good place to start can be difficult. Your location is a great place to begin. Where you will be holding your wedding, will determine a lot about your wedding colors. The difference between a woodsy wedding color palette will differ greatly from a beach wedding palette. Then, you can start putting colors together until you find your favorite combination. Remember, you are not just limited to two colors. You can create a stunning color palette for your wedding day with multiple colors.
  • How to implement your colors, and where. When you start planning your wedding, you can determine what kind of mood you would like to set. This will help you choose how you want to use your gorgeous color palette. If you are going for vibrant and happy with your summer wedding, you can use the beautiful yellow hues to brighten up the room and spread cheer, and then utilize a brown color to give your venue some contrast. This is reminiscent of a beautiful sunflower. If you have multiple areas to your venue, you can spread out your colors, such as one color per room. It all comes down to what emotions you want to draw out from your guests and what mood you want to influence them with.
  • New ways to put your colors to use. The last thing you may want on your wedding day is for it to look as though your color palette exploded on your venue. There is such a thing as too much color in one area. Of course, your flowers and likely your centerpieces will show off your gorgeous colors very well. However, you can take the venue planning in, and decide where you should splash a little color. Not everything has to be a solid color or a combination of colors. Accents of color are wonderful for wedding décor.

There are so many beautiful colors out there, and even more beautiful palettes. You can create the best color palette to complement your wedding venue by taking into account these helpful tips.
