The color scheme you choose for your wedding is important because, well – it determines almost everything.
From bridesmaid dresses to flower arrangements, the hue you narrow down for napkins, candles and shade of ribbon matters.
If you’re already feeling stuck, try not to let this statistic further overwhelm you: there are roughly 18 decillion different shades of colors. That’s the number 18, followed by 33 zeros.
More shades of colors than Elon Musk has dollars.
But fear not, we’re here to help. Bravely narrowing the 18 decillion down, and sharing 15 of the best color schemes here.
We know you’ll be inspired.
Bridesmaids dresses are a huge component of any color scheme, and it’s worth noting that Bella Bridesmaids dresses come in all colors, shades, fabrics, and cuts. So, when you find a color combo you love, be sure to check them out.
Before we get into the color schemes though, let’s touch on monochrome and monotone looks.
These add a minimalist like sophistication to your big day, and have been an enduring trend over the last few years.
A monochromatic wedding involves different shades of the same color. Take orange, for example. There’s burnt orange, carrot orange, apricot orange… grouping them together is actually quite visually pleasing.
Used in conjunction with white or cream, and the combo really pops.
A monotone scheme is simply one color. It’s a statement unto itself. When done right, it looks sharp and modern.
If you have a specific color that you absolutely love, choosing a monochrome or monotone look is easy. These both portray a simple elegance.
Additionally, choosing a color to dominate and providing little sprinkles of an accenting color adds to the wow factor. Think of a deep blue sapphire ring, secure in a simple 18 karat gold setting.
The little flash of gold emphasizes and plays up the blue, and the two together are made special because one dominates, and the other gives you sneak peeks.
15 Best Color Schemes for Any Season
People tend to choose their colors based on the season they’re getting married. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with this, however adding something a little unexpected can freshen things up too. You’re not bound to a specific pallet based on the season you’re tying the knot.
Colors enhance the aesthetic of your big day. They play into the mood, and are a big part of setting the overall vibe.
1. Dark Teal, Sage Green, and Light Beige
There’s an understated crispness about this combo, the mood comfortably elegant. These colors are always pleasing.
2. Dusty Pink, Army Green, and Gold
Perfect for the bride who loves her pink, and the groom who loves his green. The two of you go together well, and so do these colors. Offset with creams or gold.

If fall wanted to impersonate spring, this is what it would look like. Envision a bright sunflower, just softer and more subtle.
