Your color scheme has the power to set the vibe - so choose wisely. Here are the top determining factors to selecting your hues.

Wedding Setting

Setting should be your first consideration. Look at the colors used in your venue's carpeting, drapery and décor. If the site has strong colors, you'll need to select a color scheme that complements. If you already have your heart set on a certain color, you may need to select a more neutrally decorated site.

Fave Shade

You've been in love with pale lavender since the 1st grade, so go with what you love. You can tastefully incorporate any color into your wedding by selecting the right hue, and combining it with the right accents.

Fave Bloom

If sunflowers are your thing, there's no reason why they shouldn't make it into your décor scheme. Incorporate the flower color - either making it the dominant shade or using it as an accent - and it will all come together.


Decorating is simple when Mother Nature is your guide, so let the natural colors of the season be your inspiration. That doesn't mean that you're stuck with prissy pastels during spring or brown and orange during Fall. Just make sure that the colors you choose complement the blooms and foliage that are naturally available during that time of year. You can find even more tips on decorating for any season in this theme weddings guide .

Bridesmaids Dresses

If you want your ‘maids decked head to toe in your color, you'll need to make sure it's an appealing and flattering shade to wear.
