How to choose a wedding color that’s classy

Choosing a wedding color is, perhaps, one of the most difficult (and one of the most important) decisions you have to make when it comes to the Big Day. The fact that there’s an almost limitless number of combinations makes this choice so much harder than it appears at first – and many brides feel confused when having to settle on just one or two colors to truly represent their personality and their style.


So, how do you choose a wedding color that is truly classy – and that goes well with what you and your fiancé like? Here are some tips that will help you out:

  • Don’t limit yourself to wedding trends. Use them as inspiration or when you want to settle on a very particular shade of a color you have already decided on. Other than that, there’s no point in choosing a color just because it will be fashionable this year.
  • Don’t limit yourself to actual colors – non-colors and nude colors are really elegant and beautiful too! For instance, black will always be a very elegant color and you really can’t go wrong with it. Even more, nude colors combined with various shades of white can create a kind of “natural elegance” that is really timeless too.
  • Your wedding theme should give you an idea of what colors you should look into. For instance, if you plan on having a rustic wedding you can definitely use pastels, nudes, browns and/or even dashes of bright colors to decorate your venue.
  • Last, but definitely not least, do think of the “mood” you want to create around your wedding. If you want your wedding to be romantic and feminine, pastels are a great choice. And if you want to make a statement, brighter colors will work just fine too.
