Choosing a wedding color theme is one of the most important portions of the wedding planning process. Not only is it the item that ties everything together, but it is one of the most beautiful parts of a wedding. One of the first questions that a bride will be asked is, “What colors are you using?” This is because this is such an important part of the wedding.

However, did you know that all those colors actually have special times that they work the best? If you have not yet chosen your wedding colors, it may be helpful to learn more about the popular wedding colors and when the best time to use them is.

Gold

1

Gold is a color that screams tradition, elegance and warmth. It is often used by couples who are looking to create an upscale wedding. Since it is rich and intense, it also helps to give off an old world feel as well. It is definitely a color that works well in the winter or fall because of its rich hue.

Plum

2

Those who choose plum for their wedding colors are invoking a color that brings a certain level of mystery and glamour to the wedding. It is also a great option for those having a winter or fall wedding and is often associated with royalty and history.

Coral

3

This is a more modern selection and is used when brides are looking to create a Caribbean feel to their wedding. It works great in beach weddings and is a very vibrant choice. It pairs nicely with the color of water so it works well with weddings that are taking place on the beach.

Lavender

4

Lavender is a color that shows the meaning of the words ladylike, dainty and soft. It is the perfect selection for a summer or spring wedding and blends nicely with a number of colors. It is also a great color to choose for a garden wedding as well.

Champagne and Ivory

5

These two colors pair nicely together and give off a rich, conservative and elegant feel. They are often used for vintage weddings and are great compliments to rich colors like red, plum and gold as well. There is an elegance that is found with these colors that is both charming and calming and they are both very popular additions to weddings.

Orange

6

Although orange is typically used for fall weddings it is also a color that can be used at other times of the year as well. It is often associated with the harvest, and can be paired nicely with brown and copper. However, if you are looking to add it to a summer wedding, you can easily pair it with yellow or aqua as well.

Conclusion

While many brides may choose to stick with tradition, it is sometimes fun to go against the grain and choose a color that doesn’t typically match the season. There are ways that you can find the best color for your wedding and Best for Bride is there to help you make the best color decisions.
