Top 5 Ways to Pull Through your Wedding Colour Theme

by Friday 14th August 2020blog, Wedding Planning

When you get to the stage of your planning to start thinking about the decor you need first to decide what colour theme you are going to go with. Once you have decided on this, you can start finding ways to incorporate the colour theme into the wedding. It often appears more effective if the colour is factored into multiple elements of the wedding. Below I have gone through the top 5 ways to incorporate your colour theme into your wedding.

1. Bridesmaid Dresses and Groomsmen Ties or Bows

This is the most popular way to factor in your colour theme, this will be one of the first ways your guests notice the colour, and it will stand out in your wedding photos. If you are going for one colour that you want to have the wedding based around you need to make sure that it will suit your bridesmaids. You may love the idea of the colour in your centrepieces and other elements, but you need to decide if it is what you would choose for your bridesmaid dresses and groomsmen ties or bows.

2. Centrepieces

Your centrepieces will be a big statement in your wedding breakfast room that will bring everything together. If you are going for fresh flowers, you can speak with your florist, and they will be able to work with your chosen colour or at least do something very similar. If you are not going for traditional floral centrepieces, you can factor your colour theme into any centrepiece. For example, if you are going for a mirror plate with candles, you could have the candles in this colour or add scatter crystals in the shade.

3. Chair Covers

It is common to go for plain white or ivory chair covers with a coloured sash, with the sash in your chosen colour it will add another pop of your colour and work together with everything else you have arranged. If you are also using the chairs for your ceremony, this will bring in the colour theme for your ceremony and work lovely with the wedding party outfits and flowers. If you are hiring your chair covers you should ask for a swatch of your favourite colours in the sashes to take with you to choose your bridesmaid dresses to ensure they match and work together.

4. Uplighters

Uplighters not only add the perfect lighting to your evening reception and transform your wedding breakfast room into the evening reception by creating a completely different party atmosphere. But they can also be in any colour to work perfectly with your colour theme and pull all your other aspects with colour together. They can also be set up with alternating colours if you go for more than one colour in your theme, allowing you to have these arranged as fitting to your theme as possible.

5. Bouquets and Buttonholes

These are a great way to express the thought and detail you have put into the wedding, that even the smaller detail works together and complements your decor. You don’t have to have all of the flowers in the one colour necessarily, it is common to go for neutral central flowers mixed with smaller accent flowers in the colour theme. This detail will work lovely with your bridesmaid dresses and groomsmen ties or bows. Your photos will look uniformed and well planned out.

There are many ways to incorporate your colour theme into your wedding, if possible, I would recommend having your theme run through at least five elements of your wedding to get the most impact. With it being one of the biggest days of your lives you want to make sure that you have covered every basis and there won’t be anything that you look back on in photos and wish you had done something differently.
