When planning a wedding, the colour scheme is one of the most important things to consider. After all, your chosen palette sets the visual aesthetic and will influence everything from the pictures of your day to your actual memories. In other words, you can’t afford to get the palette wrong. People are often influenced by the season when choosing a wedding palette, as different colours undoubtedly lend themselves to the variety of the seasons. So, with that in mind, here are some of the best wedding palettes that you simply cannot go wrong with, no matter the time of year of your wedding.

Refreshing lilac and mint

Pastels are the talk of the town right now, and the pairing of lilac and mint is hard to beat. The understated purple and cool light green go hand in hand and help to create a stunning venue and event overall. You can also easily bring in a range of other colours when you base your wedding on lilac and mint, and the likes of light yellow and baby pink can beautifully complement the base themes of your big day. Another option to offer contrast is to bring in some forest green or royal purple to accentuate the day, leaving you with so much choice when you turn to lilac and mint to form the foundation of your special day.

Dramatic red and white

Contrasting rich red and understated white is another excellent way to create a stunning palette for your wedding day. While it might seem overly simple at first glance, the reality is that this effective colour scheme is incredibly easy to pull off. Think of classic red and white roses, red ribbon sashes, and pure white tablecloths, and you will start to envisage how wonderful this simple yet dramatic palette can be. You can incorporate various shades of red into your wedding design to make things interesting, and you will be sure of a wedding filled with vibrancy and flair, no matter the season.

Red is an excellent colour for bridesmaids’ dresses, and you’re truly spoiled for choice when it comes to shade, tone, and style. Your bridesmaids will look stunning alongside you on your big day in red, and there’s no better way to complement this understated palette than with gorgeous dresses that showcase the style of team bride.

Timeless neutrals

You can adopt a neutral palette in practically any way that you choose. In our mind, this palette excels with champagne tones, light nudes, and bronze contrasts, but feel free to get creative. If you’re hoping to keep things understated, use white as the base and keep everything minimal and matte when it comes to venue decor and bridesmaid dresses. Alternatively, you could go for a richer neutral palette and express yourself with gold accents and silky fabrics to crank things up a notch on your special day.

So, we hope you’re now inspired to choose the perfect palette for your wedding day. Feel free to get creative as you work on the dream colour palette for your big day, and draw on sources of inspiration as you look to add the finishing touches to your wedding.
