choosing the colour theme of your wedding


White with gold, pink, or silver might seem like the straightforward choice, but you need to dare to be unique. If you love purple and yellow, and would like to create a fun atmosphere, nobody should hold you back. Choose the flowers according to your colour theme, and dress your tables, venue in the shades you prefer at home. Make sure that you have a neutral background colour, such as beige or white, so your unique decorations are getting noticed.


White dresses are a part of wedding traditions, but you don’t have to completely stick to the rules. You can choose a different colour tiara or shoe, and make a statement. A flower in a dark red will make you stand out more, especially if your future husband wears similar colours. You can search for mens wedding suits in different colours, and choose the appropriate flower decorations, so your looks are a perfect match. Make sure that your bridesmaids’ dresses create a perfect contrast with your dress.


Create a contrast with your accessories. Your flowers need to be colourful, to get noticed in the white background. Get a necklace that is bold and beautiful, and a bracelet made of colourful floral motifs. Choose earrings that are not overwhelmingly large, but contain your wedding theme colour and suit your skin tone. Choose matching tablecloths, serviette, and napkin rings,cutlery, and chair decorations.


Everything at your wedding should be about you. Get creative and order a cake that is modern, bold, or even funny. Choose a colour for the decoration that is present in your venue, and motifs that are similar to your floral bouquet. If you are going for a pink princess theme, you can get a palace-shaped wedding cake made. Love red? Get some strawberries and raspberries scattered around the cake for contrast. Add colourful edible flowers or marzipan to compliment the main colour.


Avoid bland and boring food, if you want your wedding to represent your personality and attitude toward life. You can use food colouring, or even edible flowers to decorate the plates with the same colours and match the style of the wedding venue. Choose your tableware according to your menu and original colour theme.

Choosing the right colours for your wedding theme helps you make your big day memorable and unique. Get planning and find the shades that suit you the most. Talk to your bridesmaids before you decide, but avoid the standard boring combinations. Get creative, and make sure you add a unique colour you and your future husband both love and suit.
