When thinking about wedding colour themes the choices are endless. The season you are getting married in will play a role in the colours you choose such as, soft pastels in Spring, bold pinks and purples in Summer, burnt oranges in Autumn & warm reds in Winter. Choosing more off-beat colour schemes can increase the cost of your wedding décor and stationary as you’ll be more likely to have to pay custom prices. Common wedding colour pallets are more budget friendly, as pre-loved decorations will be easier to obtain (post on pre-loved decorations here) not to mention stationary, and wedding party attire will be more readily available. An even cheaper option however would be to go all white!
For a fresh and unique colour theme that would wow your guests, create stunning photographs AND be gentle to your budget go all white.
White will feature somewhere at every wedding, whether it be a white wedding dress, white table linen or simply just white shirts on the groomsmen, so why not go all white. Going all white can seem scary, but as long as you use a mix of different textures and fabrics your wedding will look expensively elegant for a very small amount without any stresses that come with a mixed colour theme.
Your decorations will help to create the season within your white colour scheme. For Winter weddings white snowflakes on top of the cutlery & white tree ornaments used in the centrepieces will work beautifully. White pinecones and white mini pumpkins will elegantly bring Autumn into your day. Spring and Summer require soft white flowers, white birdcages and white lace table runners.
A healthy scattering of candles will bring warmth and depth into all of your decorations as they cast light and shadow. Worried candles aren’t going to quite cut it? Why not buy a few packs of battery operated fairy lights to string around the ceremony/wedding breakfast room, or to incorporate into your table centrepieces? Getting married outdoors? Hang large white pompoms around the outdoor space.
Bridesmaids and Groomsmen
Finding white bridesmaids dresses will be easiest in Spring so plan your shopping trip carefully. Have your bridesmaids in short dresses, made with different necklines and fabrics to your dress so that you still stand out as the Bride. Simple white maxi dresses will look wonderful for summer weddings. For a winter wedding give your bridesmaid a faux fur stole to keep them warm. Have your groomsmen in soft grey/light sand coloured suits with white shirt and white tie.
Who doesn’t love the look of crisp white stationary? To achieve pure white stationary without being boringly plain play with textures. Have textured card, white lace detailing, beading and laser cut designs. Calligraphy style fonts will finish the look magnificently.
Effective. Stylish. Budget Friendly.
