HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR WEDDING COLOURS

Choosing the colour palette for your wedding day is one of the first decisions you’ll want to make as a couple when wedding planning. Why? Because your colours impact lots of different things on your wedding day such as your bridesmaids’ dresses, the flowers and of course your stationery designs, all of which require planning in advance.


So how to choose your wedding colour palette? You may have a colour that you absolutely love and have always dreamed about as part of your wedding day. If you’re completely undecided I recommend taking inspiration from the season your wedding day falls into. A spring wedding suits beautiful, soft pastels such as the Hollie wedding stationery collection with soft pink tones and hand drawn calligraphy.

Autumn weddings are gorgeous for tonal neutrals such as the Ottilie wedding stationery collection.

Winter weddings are ideal for richer tones with bolder colours, such as a forest green or the navy blue shown here in the couple’s wedding plan, styled with gorgeous blooms and foliage.

There’s more wedding ideas for winter and Christmas weddings on this blog post.


Aside from the seasons, speak to your wedding venue to see if they have inspiration from previous weddings and if the venue lends itself naturally to a particular theme. Perhaps a brightly coloured festival vibe with bell tents or a more formal minimalist city wedding where monochrome looks chic. A barn wedding suits rustic chic perfectly!

I love how wedding stationery helps bring a pop of colour to the wedding breakfast set up and is great if you have a dominant colour for the wedding day, like the tones of blue shown here.

Having a bolder colour palette enables the florals to match the stationery for a stunning tablescape.

If you just can’t decide on a colour then monochrome always looks stylish and works with any kind of venue. I adore this welcome and order of the day sign in black and white combined with the foliage and florals used throughout the styling.

Pinterest is amazing for wedding planning and colour palette ideas. I’ve set up my LouPaper Pinterest boards with different wedding themes such as rustic boho so have a look there for inspiration on wedding colours. There’s a board for each season too!

Have a browse through my curated collection of wedding stationery designs on my website. Each of the wedding stationery collections can be customised to suit your wedding colour scheme. There’s lots of options for finishing touches printing and foil too! I design in collections from the initial save the date to give the guests a feel for what is to come, all the way through to the on the day stationery and signage. This is why I recommend keeping your wedding colour palette consistent from the beginning.
