Bridal colour scheme ideas for your wedding

Red, blue, green, white, violet, black. What will you choose when you’re looking for your bridal colour scheme? Choosing the colour scheme for your wedding is one of the first things you’ll do when you start the planning process. It’s important because it will impact several other elements in your planning – the place settings, the flowers, decorations, your bridal party’s dresses.

What you choose for your bridal colour scheme may depend partly on the season you’re getting married. Although there are some universal colours that may work well in any season, there are definitely some shades that are more popular in spring/summer vs. fall/winter. For example, yellows, oranges or peach colours are great in summer weddings because they are bright and airy, but may look out of place in a winter wedding. And remember, if you’re looking to find flowers that match your dress colour, some of the bright flower options that are available in the summer may not be available in the wintertime. Winter colours tend to be darker shades of the summer colours. So, instead of light green or light blue, you might be looking for dark blue or forest green for a winter wedding. Here are some ideas to consider for the different seasons:
