The Color of Love: How to Choose Your Wedding Palette
One of the biggest decisions brides and grooms need to make for their wedding is what colors to use as a theme. You may opt to go with your own favorite colors, or ones that reflect the season. The stakes are high; the colors you choose will run through many aspects of your event — so choose carefully! For inspiration, here’s a look at color options and their significance.
White: The traditional color for wedding dresses. White symbolizes purity, cleanliness, and innocence and its brightness will make you stand out on your special day. Ivory: Ivory is a soft, neutral color, with a touch of earthiness of brown hues. It carries the same pureness, softness, and cleanliness of white but is slightly richer, a touch warmer.
Gold: Gold is a precious metal and the color gold is associated with wealth and prosperity. It’s a wonderful accent color to fall weddings.
Yellow: Yellow is a symbol of hope and courage. Very pale yellows work for spring weddings, lemon yellows are lovely for a citrus summer theme and dark mustard yellows make fall weddings come alive.
Red: Red is an extremely strong, passionate color. It’s a wonderful color for Christmas and Valentine weddings. Pink is the softer, sweeter side of red. It is a delicate color that symbolizes abundance, compassion and love.
Blue: Blue is tranquil, calm, peaceful, honest, trusting, and faithful. It is said to bring love and luck to weddings, and in many religious beliefs brings peace or is believed to keep the bad spirits away.
Green: Green shades symbolize life, growth, fertility, health and the environment. With both a warming effect like yellow, and a cooling effect like blue, green is a balanced, harmonized color.
Brown: Brown is a down to earth, natural, neutral color. It is a warm color that represents wholesomeness, dependability, friendliness, and steadfastness.
Gray and Silver: Silver is cool like grey, but is lively and playful. It is sleek and modern while still adding the feeling of riches. This is a versatile color that pairs nicely with almost any color.
