Especially during weddings, colors on the wedding stationary will symbolize the feelings and the mood that the couple would like to have during the celebration of their wedding because colors definitely symbolize different things. It would matter more and mean differently when the couple chooses to adhere to strict tradition, religious practices and cultural symbolism because various meanings are accorded to colors.

For reference, here are some colors that are popularly used on wedding stationary sets. The symbolisms are also included below and the couple can either believe on them and follow only those that symbolizes good vibes, or they can also just choose based on how the color would look like once applied on all the wedding elements, such as the wedding stationary.
