Choosing Wedding Color Palette – Are You Confused About Choosing Your Color Palette for your Wedding?

by WDN

weddingdigestnaija-colourpalette

Colors play crucial role in every wedding; and in today’s world, both brides and grooms are involved in choosing their wedding colors. We are all fond of choosing our childhood favourite colors for the big day, but unfortunately most colors when combined with our partner’s do not produce stunning color co-ordination.

A common trend is couples using their wedding stationery to set the style and colour theme for their wedding. With save the date cards, day and evening invites, RSVP cards, place cards and thank you cards all required, designing and making your own stationery can save you a fortune! From simple designs to more unique ideas, your stationery is a reflection of your style and wedding day dream, so make it special keepsakes you’ll cherish for many years to come.

Setting a Color Palette

Deciding on a color palette for your wedding is a very important decision. It will help set the style and theme for the whole day, as well as help to set up guidelines for choosing other elements such as wedding favours, flowers, bridesmaids’ dresses, bridal bouquet, cake, accessories and perhaps it will even inspire the mother of the bride’s outfits. Having a color palette to work with, will help ensure your day doesn’t turn into a multi-colour rainbow.

The first time you need to use your color palette will be when you send the save the date cards, or invitations if you’re not sending out the save the date cards. It is good to decide on your color palette as early as possible so you don’t end up panicking and choosing just “hushy rushy” color at the last minute. It is really important to choose color palette and theme before designing the stationery and not the other way round.

Deciding On A Color Palette or Hue 

At first choosing a color palette may seem like a huge task and one may not know where to start. This will be a lot easier when straight forward answers can be given to these questions depicting clearer indication of what you like:

  • Do you have a favourite colour(s)?
  • Which season are you getting married in? You should use warm and lively colors like  Reds in the winter months to create a cosy ambience, and avoid using dark colours during summer wedding unless they are contrasted with light colours like tiffany blue
  • If you have already selected a venue, what type of ambience does it create? Is it old and traditional or modern and formal?
  • Do you have a particular theme in mind for your wedding day? Perhaps you would like to wear a vintage dress or set a theme like a garden or beach party?
  • Do you have a favourite flower you are planning on using in your wedding bouquet?

Answering these questions should help to set foundations for your colour palette. You can have as little as two colors in your palette but try to avoid using more than four, as this will over-complicate the theme and make it clumsy. Choose one or two colors as the main color and use others as accents. Think about using tones in your scheme too.

Here are some color palettes to inspire your color scheme. Try using one as base and adapt it for your wedding

Modern

  • Black and Pale or Bright Pink
  • Black and White
  • Chocolate Brown and Blue
  • Chocolate Brown and Pink
  • Aqua Blue and Black
  • Tiffany Blue and Black
  • Red and Soft Pink
  • Black and Teal

Traditional Color Scheme

  • Gold and Silver
  • Lavender and Ivory
  • Cream and Pink
  • Lavender and Light Blue
  • Ivory and Mint Green
  • Grey and Pale Pink
  • White and Cream

Setting a Wedding Theme

When you set your color scheme you will probably have an idea of the type you want to carry through your day. However you can choose a theme for your wedding based on your personalities or interests you both share to make your day more memorable.

Here is a selection of wedding theme suggestions for your special day, ranging from traditional to something more unique.

Seasonal Wedding

  • Spring. Hold your wedding in spring to signify a new beginning.  A spring wedding can be full of pastel shades such as yellow and vibrant greens.
  • Summer. A glorious and hopefully sunny time to get married. From pale pinks to vibrant purples, most colours suit a summer wedding. Choose refreshing fruit punches and barbeque food for wedding breakfast to reflect the season.
  • Autumn. An autumn wedding can be a vibrant affair with the world turning into hues of oranges, red and brown around you. Choose lovely bouquets of burnt orange and red flowers with twisted willow and dark berries and leaves. Groomsmen can wear orange or red ties and waistcoat to match bridesmaids’ dresses.
  • Winter– Create a magical winter wonderland. Use lots of silver, gold and white throughout the day and decorate tables and topiary in fairy lights and glitter for a sparkly ambience.

Another great tip on how to choose a color scheme is to create “A One-Colour Theme” by using your favourite colour in different shades as the theme for your wedding day.

Hello Sade,

You can combine mint green with peach or coral or orange or purple or a bright shade of pink. Also you can have a monochromatic effect by using different shades of green.

Hope this helps.

Hello Rita,

Sky blue and chocolate brown goes perfectly well together. Don’t let the chocolate brown be too overpowering, using the shade minimalistically will give it a great effect.

Hope this helps.

Reply
WDN May 20, 2013 - 6:27 am

Hello Ijeoma,

Grey + Brown are not bright colors and combining both for your wedding will give a very dull effect. They are not good combo. You can combine any of the color with a vibrant color e.g Grey + Yellow & Chocolate Brown + Sky Blue or Orange for more welcoming tone.

Hope this helps.

WDN May 20, 2013 - 6:36 am

Hello Morolake,

Orange + Champagne gold are perfectly good combo. If you want a vibrant wedding, make the orange color more dominating for your engagement and if otherwise, champagne gold should be more dominating color for your engagement.

Oh my, Fuchsia Pink + Silver are great combo. You are perfectly on the right side with your colors.

WDN wishes you the best.

Hello Amabelix,

Gold + Burgundy is a good combo for your engagement. For your wedding on the other hand, there are different shades of burnt orange, kindly use a shade that is not so bright with the yellow color.

Hello Olivia,

You can pull off Red + Pink colors for your wedding because they are in the same color family. On the other hand, Red + Pink + Peach are not good combo. Why not consider using two colors that go hand in hand.

Yes you can definitely use same colors for both trad & white wedding, the choice is yours.

Hello Aku,

Sometimes the colors both parties like cannot be combined together. For me, sky blue & purple are not really a great combo. Maybe you should consider combining another color with either purple or sky blue. Eg. Sky Blue + Chocolate Brown or Purple + Yellow.

Hope this helps.

Hello Gwenda,

Red & Yellow are good combo and are both bright colors. If you are considering using a third color with these two colors, you can of course use a neutral color like gold, ivory or silver. Using a neutral color will bring the bright colors out & thus avoid any contradictory effect.

Hello Sommie,

Black & White are lovely combo. From the part of the world where we come from, people do frown @ these colors despite the fact that they are gorgeous. If you are sticking to black, I would advise you combine it with only one color which is white. Bear in mind that there is not much difference between white & silver.

Hello WDN, thanks for the reply… There is no particular colour for d day cos it’s just a civil wedding,.. We r gonna be hanging out with some friends later that day… The wedding proper comes up much later… So, I’m not light skinned but not very dark… Will champagne be ok for me? What colour of shoe & bouquet should I go for? Hope to get a reply soon.. Thank u

Hello Abim,

Orange + Fuchsia Pink + Red are three conflicting colors. Unless you are trying to have a rainbow color kind of wedding, you can pull this off depending on how you combine them. Arabian wedding has got many bright colors to the theme.

@ Irety, why not get a neural shirt color like white for the groomsmen which they can wear with either a mint green tie or orange tie. You can as well use both for the groomsmen depending on how many of them you have. This idea will pop out you colors on your bridal party. The idea you suggested will look quite clumsy. Y

Your bridesmaids can also choose either mint green or orange for their dresses.

Hope this helps.

Hello Mirabel,

Peach + Mint Green are lovely combination. No, you don’t need to add pink because the colors will tend to be conflicting with one another. You can use a mint green wrapper; it seems to be the best choice of color.

Hope this helps.

Yellow and white is my outfit colour. I need help with the colour of the day and aso ebi?
For the white wedding, are you saying; I can pick from the four colours :for bridal train, aso ebi, colour of the day. Or you mean I can use the four colours.

Reply
Lola Onabowale March 21, 2015 - 1:50 pm

Hello Kemi,

You can use any other colors for your traditional wedding like Green + White, Blue + White etc depending on your choices of colors. The parents can wear a lighter shade of brown for your traditional or red trad outfits. You need to sit down and take time to visualize how the colors would turn out.

For your white, you can choose out of the four colors you mentioned. Use the colors you (the couple) would not be using predominantly for your Bridal Train and Aso-Ebi.

Hope this helps.

Hello Chioma,

Royal Blue + Gold + Red are your colors like you mentioned. Your MOH can wear either gold or red. Your bridesmaids can wear red if your MOH is wearing gold and vice versa.

The groom can be in white or black or tuxedo suit while his men can can wear Royal blue suit with gold tie (the gold tie can match the BMs dresses).

Hope this helps.

Lily February 21, 2015 - 10:35 pm

Hi WDN,
Please i need help choosing my wedding colours. We have decided to go for yellow (my favourite) and purple (the one my fiance prefers). To make the yellow not too loud like the ones i have seen in weddings, i want to tone it down. so i decided mustard yellow and a deep purple will go together. What do you think about these colours?

Secondly, now that i have these two colors, (i.e if you say they are fine), i still feel that they are quite loud for each other and may come out sharp. What colour can i add to it to make it not too sharp for each other?

thirdly, i am having my traditional on the same day as my wedding. How can i use these three colours well for the trad, white and reception on the same day without making it look too much at the end of the day?

i will really appreciate your advice on this. Thanks

Reply
Lola Onabowale March 21, 2015 - 2:12 pm

Hello Lily,

Wow, I am loving your colors! Yellow and Purple are complimentary colors so girl, you are on the right path. Now back to your questions

1. Mustard Yellow & Purple are perfect colors for weddings.

2. Mustard Yellow + Purple are not loud colors and you changing the color from yellow to mustard yellow has solved the problem but if you would love a third color, you can use grey or sky blue or Ivory.

3.Using all the 3 colors in one day is a fantastic idea/concept and remember these are all your colors for the day. You can use minimalistic touch of each for the Trad & Wedding and make the colors more pronounced at the reception.

Hope this helps.

Warmest Regards

Your parents can wear something neutral while your friends can choose a color (or 2) from your wedding colors for their outfits.

Just keep in mind that whatever they are wearing should not overpower with what you & your fiancé are putting on.

Your groomsmen can wear a dark colored suit, white shirt, and match the ties with the color of your BM dresses.

Lastly, your parents can wear any other color of your choice preferably not bold colors to make them look different.

Congratulions for your upcoming wedding!

Back to your question…Like you said, your colors for the day are Royal Blue + Silver for engagement. Fuschia Pink + White for your reception outfits are perfect. For the groom’s outfit, not letting the pink overpower his outfit will surely be a perfect idea, or better still, he can opt for a fuschia pink cap which will perfectly coordinate with your own outfit.

You mentioned your colors are Royal Blue + Silver, why not let your friends and families go with your wedding color theme.

My questions are:
1. How can we incorporate this colors for reception so that it won’t be too loud?
2. If I am to include a third colour, what color(s) will u suggest?
3. What color combo will u suggest for the groom, best man & grooms men?
4. What color do you think I should use for my CBM, BM, aso ebi girls
5. How about colours for the parent.

Thanks. I eagerly await your response

Reply
Lola Onabowale July 23, 2015 - 1:27 pm

Hello Yeancar,

Whoop, congrats in advance!

Red + Champagne is viola, you can’t go wrong with these luxe colors, just pretty amazing.

1. Red + Champagne Gold can be incorporated perfectly well at your reception by just adding a touch of red to the whole set up. Red is a manipulative color, a little touch of it will not overpower your reception look.

2. Adding a third color is a great idea, but choosing a cool tone color will be a better option. Colors like, Blush Pink, Ivory or Turquoise Blue will be perfect. Just bear in mind that you have a very dominating color in your scheme, which is red, so any other color you choose for your third color must not be competing with Red.

3. For the Groom and his men, they can wear White or Black Tuxedo suits, with black bow ties, and create accents to their whole look with red boutonnières.

4. For your CBM and BMs you can let them go with your color scheme for the day. If your CBM wears Red, your BMs can opt for Champagne Gold, or vice versa. But if you want them all to wear Champagne Gold, it comes in different shades, so you can distinguish your CBM look in a different shade of Champagne Gold. For there bouquets, if any, they can coordinate with the groomsmen in Red.

Aso-Ebi girls can opt for your third color. What about that? And you can choose Gele in champagne gold or red for them all.

5. Parents can wear any color you want them to. Eg. Shades of browns, from light shade to dark shade, blues, whites, Ivory etc.

Hope this helps.

Happy Planning!

Congratulations!

So sorry this is coming late. Back to your question.

1. For your trad look outfit, you can wear White/Ivory. Yes, coral beads are perfect for your ensemble. Red shoes + Matching clutch bag is great because you’ve got a touch of red in your Gèlè.

2. For decor, you forgot to mention your colors of the day. But it will be good to let you decor be in your colors of the day.

3. Yes, the parents outfits are perfect.

4. For yor white wedding, your colors are Purple + Yellow….Awesome colors. You can never go wrong with these two complementary colors.

5. Yes, the parents outfits for the white wedding are okay. Peach + Silver!

6. For Aso-Ebi for the bride’s family, you have chosen purple lace for your friends like you said, you can choose silver/white gèlè for them. Purple is a dark shade of color, a bright colored headgear will surely bring out the look. Men can wear purple lace, but their own pattern and design should feel and look very masculine.

7. Yes, you can use all white bouquet. It is just perfect!

8. For your reception dress, you can go for Gold.

Hope this helps.

We wish you the very best with your wedding planning.

The Ivory color is a neutral color, so introducing it into your color scheme is awesome.

Hello Gbemi,

As stated in your comment, your colors are Emerald Green + Orange + Peach + Blush Pink for your engagement wedding. And for white wedding, your colors are Red + Yellow + Gold.

For the white wedding the colors are perfect. Gold is a neutral color and it blends with other colors like Red + Yellow.

On the other hand, for your engagement colors, color experts advise that it is better to keep your color scheme to the maximum of 3 to avoid color conflicts unless you plan to have a rainbow themed wedding. I will advice that you pick your favorite colors that will harmonize one another for your big day.

Hope this helps.

Hello Nofisat,

I wish you a happy married life in advance.

Orange is a vibrant color and a little touch of it can make a big statement.

You can combine orange with Purple, Green, Chocolate Brown, and you also combine it with unique neutral colors like Silver, Champagne Gold, White and Gold.

Hope this helps!

Hello Medina,

Yes, you can combine purple and grey.

Your husband can wear the same colour of outfit (it will give him a monochromatic feel).

Hope this helps.

Warmest regards

Hallo WDN, my wedding is coming up in September, my wedding colours are purple, gold and blush pink/ peach. Below r what I feel should be the colour arrangements. Pls advice
1.I want to use mustard gold n purple for traditional wedding but don’t know how to combine them or which color to be dominant for an elegant look as my fiance is very dark
2. What colour can our parents wear. I’m thinking of silver and peach for engagement then purple for white wedding
3. I chose purple for my bride’s maids and blush pink/ peach for my chief and flower girl
4. Groom men in black suit n white shirt. I’m confused on the color of tie, preferably stripped tie with peach/blush pink buttoniere. Then gold waist coat for the groom
5. How should the decoration clog be so it won’t too colourful. Thanks

Hello Temi,

Happy planning and happy married life in advance!

According to what you wrote, your wedding colors are Purple + Gold + Blush Pink/Peach.

Mustard Gold + Purple for a traditional wedding is perfect. Your groom-to-be can wear purple and just a touch of gold on his cap and you, on the other hand, can combine the two colors beautifully with your outfit. Your Aso-Oke couturier should be able to advise you better on this.

The parents can incorporate any of your wedding colors into their outfits. Peach and Silver are also perfect

Purple is great for your bridesmaids’ outfits and choosing a different color for your CBM will add a modern touch

Your groomsmen choice of black suit on white shirts is classy, they can color coordinate their ties with the color of the bridesmaids dresses

The decoration depends on how you want the ambiance of your reception to be. Some couples are even incorporating neutral colors all through into their wedding decor and the lighting will reflect their wedding color hues. You can discuss this with your event stylist. Let her know your style, personality and what you love. S/he will definitely suggest some lovely ideas and even do a pre-look floral/table decor arrangement at your request before your big day.

Hope this helps.

Pls ma, my engagement colour is orange & champagne gold but I am confused on the colour for the white wedding. I have been thinking on how I can combine orange, mint green and champagne gold for aso ebi. How can I share the colour for both the groom’s and bride’s family?

Reply
Lola Onabowale August 4, 2016 - 8:21 pm

Hello Bunmi,

As stated in your message – Your wedding colors are Orange + Champagne gold and you want to add a third color which is Mint Green.

These 3 colors are a perfect color combination. For the Aso-Ebi, the ladies can go for Orange + Champagne gold while the men can go for Mint + Champagne gold. Orange is a loud color and it has a feminine feel while mint green would be perfect for men.

Hope this helps.

Happy married life in advance.

Hello Temmy,

Your wedding colors are Teal Green and Fuschia Pink! These are a perfect color combo.

For a third color, you can incorporate neutral colors like Ivory, Gold, Silver etc.

For your buba, the choice is absolutely yours.

You fiance can go for the teal green because of its masculinity feel.

Hope this helps

Happy married life in advance.

Good Morning Ma,
My wedding is in November and I need your help. For my traditional attire, I intend to use turquoise blue native on sky blue aso oke gele and ipele. My husband to be is wearing a sky blue atiku and sky blue cap.
I am worried about mine cos I don’t know if that combination will come out nice.
Hoping to hear from you. Thank you so much.
N.B the turquoise blue native is because I couldn’t get a sky blue native I liked.

Hello Omoboye,

In my opinion, I would say you should go for just monotone color.
It either you go for Sky blue all through or you go for turquoise all through.
Hope this would help.

Happy married life in advance.

Hello Onome,

Congratulations in advance!

Navy Blue + Yellow are perfect colors. For your parents and parents-in-law, you can actually play with another color of your choice. For example, what about incorporating colors like coral, red, or another shade of blue.

Hope this helps.
