Brides and grooms choose their wedding theme for many reasons. Maybe they have favorite colors that they want to incorporate into their theme, like purple and teal. Maybe they have a special time of year they prefer, like Halloween or Christmas. They also may have a special theme in mind, like the roaring 20’s or antiques. There are many way of incorporating these things into your wedding day. You can incorporate them into your flowers, linens, centerpieces, invitations, etc. If you are choosing a color, or colors, into your theme, why not choose colors that are associated with the season you are getting married?
Wedding Colors by Season
If you are getting married in springtime, you may want to choose pastel colors. Think about pastel pink flowers, accented with yellow, wrapped in a baby blue ribbon. You can choose white chair covers tied with large pastel green ribbons. You can also select to have more than one color or you can stay with a single color within the color range.
Getting married in the summer? We suggest to brighten up your color pallet. Look for vibrant blues, purples, greens, pinks, etc. Think about cream colored invitations with royal blue lettering. Centerpieces are a good place to add color into your wedding also. How about large white mums and deep greenery in a clear vase that is wrapped in a brightly colored ribbon.
Want to have a Halloween/Fall wedding? The best colors for this time of year are deep reds, rust, orange and golden yellow. Although there are plenty of flowers in those colors, don’t forget that fall foliage can be incorporated also. Since the season is fall, which is when the leaves fall off the trees, think about using twigs and leaves. Twigs in a large vase look very nice as a centerpiece. Instead of sprinkling confetti or glitter on the table, try placing different colored leaves around.
Last but not least is a winter wedding. This can be a very beautiful time of year. There are two ways to look at winter weddings; look at it as winter, cold and snowy, or as Christmas themed. If choosing the winter wonderland theme, go with blues, whites, silvers and crystals. You can take bare branches painted white and place them into a vase. Wrap the vase with a white ribbon with silver glitter throughout. Now hang crystals from the branches. You can also do this same option with snowflakes hanging from the twigs. Another idea to incorporate winter wonderland into your wedding is by adding snowflakes to your wedding invitations. If choosing Christmas as your theme, you may want to think of reds, greens and even black. When thinking of flowers, think of poinsettias and holly.
No matter what you choose, use any opportunity you can to add your own touch of personality to your wedding. Keep in mind that if you get plants and flowers in season, it will be less expensive to buy them at that time they are in season.
