How to choose the perfect colour palette for your wedding

When it comes to your special day, choosing the best colour palette is a very important decision.  You might be inclined to think that picking your wedding colour is a quick, easy decision, but it’s not one that you should take lightly, and it’s not one that is as easy as it sounds (just think about how long it takes us girls to decide on a colour for our nails, and times that by 1,000!)  So, where do you start choosing the perfect colour for your wedding? If you are feeling like you are in over your head with this whole topic, you have come to the right place! If it is some gentle guidance that you need then keep reading, as we point out tips on how to choose the best colour palette for your dream wedding day.

The first and most important decision in choosing your wedding colour palette is to decide on a base colour – this is the first step in finding the perfect match for your wedding.  The base colour should be something that is on-trend and in season.  If you are unsure of which colours are in season, a good tip would be to check out Pantone’s most popular colours for the current year. For example, the colour of the year for 2019, chosen by Pantone is coral.  Once you decide on a colour that is on-trend and compliments the style of the wedding the next step is to ensure that you incorporate these colours in the minor decorative details of your wedding. 

Choose a colour that is flattering to you. You want to make sure that you use colours that compliment your skin tone as well as the skin tone of the bridal party. There are just some colours that will work against the undertone of your skin and take away from your overall look – steer clear of these and make sure that you get a second and third opinion too!

Incorporate your colour palette with accessories, cakes and other decorative accents.  Making sure that you are coordinated with the different accents and accessories is so important to ensure that your wedding has a classy and cohesive flow.  Not everything has to match perfectly; pair colours that compliment each other; determine if changes need to be made, and adjust your colours as needed.

Consider the season that you are planning your wedding.  This could help you determine which colours to go with and which colours may be off limits if seasonality of fresh flowers don’t allow for it.  Personally I love silk flowers, which also helps open the door of seasonality restrictions! Your location is also another factor to consider; Cyprus is a Mediterranean gem, whites, blues and beach themes are popular so a lot of fun can be had with your chosen palette!

Don’t forget that your colour palette should also compliment the male members of your party. In this case I’d always advise to go neutral or toning colours for the grooms/best man attire; much more classy and tasteful.

Choosing the perfect colour palette for your wedding should be a fun and exciting task.  Remember that this is one of the most important days of your life and all eyes and cameras will be on you. Choose your colours wisely!
