How to Choose Wedding Color Palette on Big Day

Your wedding colors should be in keeping with your overall style. For most women, though, being asking to define their personal style can be a real head-scratcher. 


Unless you work in fashion or design, the chances are that when you shop for clothes or decorate your home, you simply buy what appeals to you, without giving much thought to the overall aesthetic that guides your choices. 


Subconsciously, however, most of us do have fairly consistent style, and once you learn what that is, picking the perfect colors for your wedding will be much easier.


Take a look at these four types of styles, and see which one sounds the most like you:


Classic: Women with classic style tend to like things which are timeless, as opposed to trendy or very vintage.


You would define your style as classic if you tend to gravitate towards clothing with clean lines, the types of pieces which are available year after year.


So if your closet is filled with polo shirts, twin sets, and A-line skirts, you can safely call yourself a classic bride.



You are the bride for whom pearl wedding jewelry sets were created. The best colors for your wedding are the most traditional: white, pale pink and ivory, or blue and white.


Preppy girls would also fall into this category, and their perfect wedding color palettes are pink and green (with plenty of patterns like stripes, polka dots, or plaids) or blue, white, and yellow (with a nautical flair).


Dramatic: You carry only one shade of lipstick in your clutch purse: pure red. You like strong perfumes with warm and spicy notes.

You own at least one article of clothing with an animal print (and possibly a whole zoo!). If this sounds like you, consider your wedding style to be dramatic.


Rich dark colors like eggplant and blood red are ideal for a dramatic bride. Your wedding needs to make a splash and have a high "wow" factor.


The high contrast pairing of deep red and pure white (think red roses and a white bridal gown) will be right up your alley.


Another excellent color palette for a dramatically inclined bride is deep purple and regal gold.


Eclectic: This can cover a range of styles. There are brides who love all things vintage, those with earthy or natural tendencies, and women who appreciate a good dash of whimsy.


If you find yourself spending more time in vintage shops than the mall, you will like dusty color palettes like cameo and ivory or mauve and dove gray.


If you are planning an eco-wedding or consider yourself most at home in the great outdoors, opt for wedding colors inspired by nature.


Moss green and mushroom brown, slate blue with taupe, or sage green and ivory will all appeal to your inner naturalist.


The whimsical bride is one who gravitates towards things like letterpress invitations with a retro bird motif or shops like Anthropologie.


If chunky handknits are more your style than buttoned up pearl bridal jewelry sets, then you will like wedding color palettes such as red and pink, apricot and robin's egg blue, or mustard and aqua.


Festive: How do you know if your wedding style is festive? You probably find yourself saying, "I just want everyone to have a great time" when anyone asks you what type of wedding you want.


The chances are that you like relaxing with friends or going out to clubs more than almost anything.



The best colors for a festive wedding are those which are bright and cheerful, never stuffy or precious.


Color palettes like fuchsia and orange, hot pink and chartreuse, or sunshine yellow with orange will create the upbeat party atmosphere that you want for your wedding. Eat, drink, and be merry!
