Example Wedding Color Scheme & Color Palette Ideas

Choosing Your Wedding Color Scheme

The colors you choose for your wedding day set the tone and style for your entire wedding. You can use color in your bridesmaids’ dresses, decorations, cake, favors, flowers, accessories, table linens and even the invitations! Choose colors you like, but also consider the following:

  1. Where is the wedding and reception? Choose colors that complement the setting. Consider the carpeting, drapery and decor, etc.
  2. What mood do you want to create? Vibrant colors add drama, while soft colors evoke a more romantic atmosphere.
  3. What time of year will you marry? The season may influence your color scheme. Spring and summer colors tend to be lighter, while fall and winter colors are generally darker.

Three Tools To Help You Choose A Coordinated Color Scheme

1. Color Wheel – A color wheel helps you choose coordinating colors. It is made out of three primary colors: red, blue and yellow, plus a blend of in-between colors.

2. Color Scheme Designer to try out some color scheme ideas.

3. Color Palette Generator Tool – This handy (and fun!) tool allows you to upload your favorite photo and generate an instant color palette. You can then print and select your favorite colors from the chart. Here are some color charts we created using this tool.

​Tips: Try to limit your main colors to two or three so as not to look too jumbled and stay consistent with your colors throughout the wedding site. Use a few subdued colors for an elegant look.
