Here are 8 Romantic ways you can create a colourful wedding:

Start With A Wedding Mood Board

Creating a wedding mood board is a great way to get started when choosing wedding colours for your wedding day colour palette. It’s important to keep your wedding palette cohesive throughout the entire process, and a mood board can help you achieve this.

Start by collecting inspiration from various sources such as Pinterest, magazines, online galleries, and even your own personal experiences. You can then compile all of your ideas onto a physical or digital board, using images, colour swatches, and other items that inspire you. This way, you can easily refer back to your mood board throughout the wedding planning process and make sure you’re staying true to your vision. A mood board is a great tool to help you create a wedding that reflects your unique personality and style.

Colourful Wedding Bouquets

Add pops of colour with stunning floral arrangements. Think about using vibrant blooms like peonies, ranunculus, or dahlias. You can also add colourful silk ribbons to your bouquets for a romantic, fine art touch.

Wedding Stationery

Showcase your chosen colour palette in your wedding stationery. Incorporate your colours into your invitations, signage, place cards, or menu cards. This will give your guests a sneak peek of what’s to come on your special day.

Wedding Linens, Nappery and Styling Fabrics

Don’t forget about your linens, napkins, and styling fabrics. These can be great opportunities to introduce your colours in subtle yet beautiful ways. Whether you start with neutral shades and add colour through your napkins, or styling fabrics, your wedding celebration doesn’t have to be boring. It should be a reflection of your own personal style.

Colourful Wedding Candles

Candles are a romantic and timeless way to incorporate colour into your celebration. Think about using coloured taper or pillar candles or even adding coloured votives to your reception tables. If you want something more traditional, candles are a great way to add some subtle colour to your overall vision and colour palette.

Colourful Table Decor

Table decor is another area where you can showcase your colour palette and unique style. Add a unique and memorable touch with coloured plates, cutlery, and glassware. Don’t be afraid to experiment with colour, or talk to your stylist about your vision. They’ll be able to help you achieve the reception look of your dreams.

Colourful Wedding Attire

For the bride, coloured wedding dresses are all the rage to show off your unique style. If you prefer to stay traditional, opt for coloured wedding shoes to reflect your personal style.

The colour doesn’t just stop with the bride, you can add colour to your bridesmaids’ attire to complement your overall wedding colour palette. For the groom and his groomsmen, consider adding a pop of colour with pocket squares, bow ties, or even the dinner suit jacket.

Encourage your guests to wear colours that complement your wedding theme. Imagine how stunning your wedding photos will be with pops of vibrant hues when you look back at your day. Plus, it’s a beautiful way to include your loved ones in your special day.

Colourful Wedding Cakes

Make your cake even more memorable by adding a pop of colour to the layers. Whether it’s a subtle pastel shade or a bright and bold hue, a coloured layer can add a playful and romantic touch to your wedding dessert. Try adding flowers, and 3D motifs or subtle coloured fabrics to add your personality.

Remember, your wedding day should be a reflection of you as a couple, so don’t be afraid to let your personalities shine through with bold colours or subtle pops of colour. A colourful wedding is a beautiful way to make your special day truly unforgettable. Just remember to tie in your colours throughout your entire wedding from invitations through to florals and reception styling.
