It is important to think about how the colour will blend with the white theme which runs throughout a wedding, as well as if it is well suited to the bride. The leading colour will feature in numerous wedding decorations and accessories and will be apparent in pictures.  For this reason, it is important to choose colours which people suit and are comfortable wearing on the day.

What to look for when choosing a colour scheme for a wedding

Before making a decision, you should take a look at the colours at the wedding venue.  If it is fairly neutral you will have more flexibility but if there is a dominant colour you could opt for a colour which would complement it.

Choosing an on-trend colour is also a great option as it will be easy to find plenty of decorations and accessories. Shops will be full of accessories in your chosen colour, as well as in other colours which go beautifully, which should mean they will be competitively priced.

The time of year, or even the month of the wedding can also play great importance!  Factors such as these can effect flower prices and availability.  Each variety of flower has a specific season, which is quite often short.  If for example you have always dreamt of an abundance of lilacs as your decorations then plan your wedding for May.  The beginning of summer is the perfect time for a lavender filled wedding reception.  To avoid disappointment, it is worth checking the availability of your specific dream flowers during the initial stage of planning.
