When I was planning my wedding in 2016, I spent a lot of time on Pinterest looking for color inspiration, and came to find that muted and simple color schemes are the norm when it comes to most weddings. However, I did come across some really fun, bold, and colorful ones that caught my attention. My husband and I ended up decorating our wedding with vibrant warm colors, and I loved the way the colors stood out against our outdoor venue with its natural tones. If you’re seeking a color scheme that makes a serious statement, then the ones I’ve put together might be just the inspiration you’re looking for.






Tips for Making the Most of Your Color Scheme


Choose a Main Color

The easiest way to create a cohesive look at your wedding is to choose a main color that’s used most throughout your decor. This color should be the most dominant, whereas all your other colors can be used as accents that stand out against your main color. If you don’t want to use a vibrant color as your main color, you could try a more muted tone like ivory or gold, and contrast that with louder accent colors.

Incorporate a Variety of Decorations That Use Your Color Scheme

Beyond just the flower arrangements, there are lots of ways that you can incorporate your color scheme throughout your wedding. Your wedding programs, table cloths, napkins, cake, and decorations in general can all follow your color scheme to create a cohesive and memorable look. If you keep an eye out for decorations that match your color scheme, you’ll be surprised by the unique combination of decorating ideas you’ll come up with.

Add a Muted Color or Two to Your Decor

In order to balance out the boldness of your color scheme, you may want to incorporate a more muted, natural color or texture that contrasts with the vibrant colors you’ve chosen. Ivory, gold, silver, and beige are all great choices, which could be used in base items like table cloths, table runners, and vases. Materials like burlap and wood can be a great way to incorporate more muted tones and add natural textures to your wedding at the same time. You could even try mixing natural materials with metallic objects to create a really diverse look.
