Wedding Colour Schemes

Rainbow wedding dresses

Deciding on a wedding colour scheme can be a huge source of worry. You'll want to think about the time of year - traditionally deep burgundies and dark green would be better suited to winter weddings for example.

Choosing a Colour Scheme

The colouring of your bridesmaids may influence you, plus colours that you think would look good in your bouquet against your dress.

Your venue may also play a part if it has carpet or walls that are a strong colour. You may want to introduce a second colour e.g. hot pink with black or orange with chocolate to use either as accessories for bridesmaids or for some flowers and table decorations.

Hot Wedding Colours for 2014 and 2015

Yellow wedding colour scheme.

2014 and 2015 see some stunning new colours being used, plus some interesting colour combinations.

The biggest story for 2014 is sophisticated and subtle colours and combinations.

Soft colours, and using many soft shades of the same colour, is the biggest look right now.

New colour combinations emerging are: lemon and grey, soft pink and soft apple, and shades of pink.

Another new entry to 2014 is Neutrals. Shades of ivory and cream, used with foliage create a subtle backdrop for the bride to shine.

Blues are also soft - a powder blue used with either lemon or ivory looks very fresh and modern.

Previously hot colour schemes such as black and white and purple are still very popular, having become classics.
