Top 6 Colour Schemes For Your Wedding Day

6 colour schemes perfect for every venue and season

Choosing your colour scheme for your wedding can be a tricky task, there are endless options so it can be hard to know where to start. To help you out we’ve listed a few of our favourite colour palettes that look amazing in any season.

The classic white, cream or ivory

This is a simple but incredibly beautiful colour scheme to have for your big day. This is a popular option to go for as it will look good in any wedding venue. If this is your main colour scheme, you can use highlights of gold or silver in your decor. Traditionally, a white colour palette is associated more with spring or summer weddings, but a lot of couples are choosing this colour scheme for their autumnal and winter weddings too.

Burnt orange, sand and magnolia

This is a slightly more specific colour scheme but is sure to go with any season. The burnt orange is a classic autumnal colour, but the brightness of the shades will give your summer wedding a pop of colour.

Adding some beige pampas grass, like in the bouquet to the left, will really make your floral arrangements stand out.  If you’re looking for a romantic/festival style wedding, this colour scheme will go perfectly. You can also match the bridesmaids dresses with one or more of the colours to keep the theme throughout the whole wedding.

Peach and sage

Peach can be very tricky to get right, paired with the wrong colour and it can run the risk of looking dated. However, in the right setting with the right decor it will bring your wedding venue to life. This colour combination is especially popular in barn-style venues, it enhances the rustic feel and brings a nice pop of colour. The cool sage makes the brightness of the peach stand out. Take a look at how the colours beautifully compliment each other in the images below. If you’re having a spring wedding this colour scheme would go perfectly.

Pink, pink and more pink!


Pink is a really popular colour for wedding decor, it’s known for its romance and elegance so no wonder it’s a lot of couples number one choice. Here are a few different combinations that would work if you were thinking of adding pink into your colour scheme:

  • Dusty pink and mocha brown
  • Blush pink and sage green
  • Baby pink and fossil grey
  • Pink and gold
  • Pink and silver
  • Coral and fuchsia
  • Rose pink and cream/beige
  • Flamingo pink and lavender
  • Salmon pink and teal
  • Bubblegum pink and lemon yellow
  • Baby pink and baby blue

Rose gold and navy

Having rose gold as part of your colour scheme is a great way to add a bit of sparkle to your big day. If you’re having this colour for your bridesmaids dresses, you’re in luck, it’s a colour that suits pretty much everyone.

Navy is a popular colour for wedding suits and the groomsmen. If you’d like to keep some tradition but steer away from the classic black suits, navy is a great way to go. Both colours together are contrasting but compliment each other very well.

Slate grey and yellow

Grey can be a tricky colour for a wedding, however, it’s elegant and timeless so if you choose this as part of your colour scheme it will last the test of time. Also, the positive thing about including grey in your wedding is that it goes with almost every other colour so you can get creative with it.

Having a pop of colour against a muted shade is a very popular combination in weddings. Any type of yellow would look beautiful against a slate grey. To keep it more understated a pastel yellow would be the perfect fit. However, if you’d like something brighter, a lemon yellow would look equally as beautiful.
