Choosing your wedding colors should be done as early as possible. Everything will fall into place once the color for the big event has already been decided. Remember that you can only discussed about the flowers with your florist once you have made your decision on your wedding colors, that how important it is. Even your cake will need the decision on your wedding colors as well.

Way back then, it’s a lot easier to plan weddings. It’s usually the parent’s choices and how well you express your social standing in life. Particular ideas are limited because back then the market is out of individualized designs. But in our today’s world, the pressure is on in full volume. Every little detail on your wedding will be an expression of your personal tastes and styles. It is interpreted in a much different way like it never had before.


For some brides, this is the easiest task ever. They have been dreaming of this particular moment to come and now that it’s finally here, they can easily picture out the whole scenario of how the wedding will go, especially the theme and the color along with it. The fascination with the color purple runs amok through most brides-to-be. All they have to do is coordinate the color purple in its most suitable hues. They can even imagine their bridesmaids and the colors they are awash with.

But for others, it is the most complicated matter that needs to be settled as soon as possible, and with the pressure that they are on, it makes it even harder to decide. Let this not pressure you needlessly. All you have to do is follow your heart’s desire and you’ll be able to come up with the perfect theme and color for your wedding.

To be able to fully grasp the idea for the theme and color of your wedding, you have to visualize the venue where your big even will take place. If you are aiming for something traditional with Martha-esque tints go for cultivated gardens. For a feel of something sensationally strong on a fall wedding, try a rustic-looking venue, a barn perhaps? And if you’re picturing your wedding with tents, you’re in with a blank slate. You can be as creative as you want. You can go classic with it or absolutely and brazenly modern about it to your heart’s content.

The geography plays a significant role in your theme and colors as well. With the blinding sun, tropical wedding affairs are often showcased with the brightest shades and hues of all. You can have the brightest color of yellow, pink, orange and aqua. However, an evening white-tie wedding affair in the city of New York will not ask so much out of you.

Seasonal hints are always in the middle decision for most brides. Fortunately, most traditional and modern wedding affairs have seasonal palettes. The bride can choose between traditionally classical weddings during the summer that features the shade of sage and blue cornflower or a modern setting with the colors of orange, pink, lime green, fuchsia and black.

Modern settings for wedding affairs are more bold and adventurous when it comes to color. There are many modern colors involved and the more colors the better the presentation will be. The contrast between these strikingly bold colors makes a big impact on the color scheme of the whole wedding affair. The choice to have modern colors in your wedding should be taken very seriously with a little apprehension on the side.

If you finally decide that you’ll have a yellow theme wedding, you have to make the most out of this particular choice of yours. Think of ways on how you’ll be able to make your chosen color shine. Matching colors are not the best these days. It’s time to explore a little bit and try out some bold colors. Choose your colors very wisely and try to stick with them. Avoid sticking to matching hues and tints, instead use the many shades of the color you have chosen and try to make a sophisticated monochromatic effect for the color and theme of your whole wedding affair. Try to design your wedding theme with varieties of bright beautiful colors.
