Tips from The Knot

1. Set the Mood

Your wedding colors can also help create a vibe for your wedding day. If you’re going for a lot of drama, then a dark or jewel tone palette, like ruby red and black or emerald and gold, is a better choice than light pastels.

2. Do Your Research

Magazines, art galleries and friends’ weddings are all great sources for inspiration. While you wouldn’t want to choose a color combo just because it’s on trend, looking towards art and design may help you see colors you already love in a new way.

3. Think Seasonally

Just like your wardrobe, your wedding color scheme can be inspired by the time of year you’re saying —“I do.” Think about the shade you want to use to bring out the season in your color palette. Rosy pink is perfect for spring, while a brighter coral is a summer staple. For fall, a rich fuchsia pairs well with other jewel tones, and blush and silver are a pretty wintry combo.
