Choosing a colour theme for your wedding is quite important to establish early on in your wedding planning. It drives a lot of decisions, and can even impact your choice of venue. Most venues are fairly neutral and take on any colour theme you choose, but some more established venues may have an existing style and décor that may not sit right with the theme you want.
It also impacts on the selection of wedding party outfits, floral choices, invitations, the cake, table and venue décor. For us, it was a natural progression for us to choose a deep, dark red, ivory and black theme for our special day. It’s a colour we both like, and we knew we didn’t want an overly feminine theme for our wedding, as it doesn’t suit both our personalities.
I’d seen this floral pin fairly early on in the wedding planning stage, and Bobby loved it too so without too much further discussion we decided that we would have those colours in mind for our wedding. I love roses and was inspired by the bouquet design along with cala lilies and the black band on the wedding dress.
We’ll do a fuller post on various other wedding colour themes and palettes, but for now here’s a few pictures of the details from our day.
