Defining your wedding colors is the first step to planning out your overall design plan. Once you’ve chosen your perfect color palette, it’s time to decide where you want to weave in your favorite hues. There is no right or wrong answer to this, but you do want to be cautious about going overboard with colors that might clash.

Here are five great places to incorporate your color palette throughout your wedding.

floral color palette


Perhaps the most obvious choice of adding color to a wedding, floral arrangements are an excellent way to go bold with your palette. Popular wedding flowers, like garden roses, peonies, ranunculuses, and hydrangeas, come in a wide array of hues to match your color palette to a T.


linen color palette


Linens tend to be another popular choice for infusing color into a celebration. Consider alternating colors throughout guest tables, or opting for white linens throughout and making a statement with colorful linens on the sweetheart, cake, and welcome tables. Bonus tip: White linens can always be dressed up with vibrant cloth napkins to make an impression.


attire color palette


Whether it’s your something-blue shoes, multicolor bridesmaid dresses, or a sweet pink bowtie for the groom, the wedding party attire is a prime outlet to have fun with your color palette. After all, the photographer will be capturing plenty of shots of the wedding party, so your colors will live on for years.


purple uplighting


Colored uplighting is a powerful way to infuse your color palette into the very atmosphere for your wedding. From soft pink to deep blue, uplighting can bathe a space in color and change the whole mood of a room.


stationery color palette

Stationery + Signage

Nothing adds a pop of color to an event like bright menus, escort cards, table numbers, or signage. Use your invitation suite for inspiration, or go with a whole new design scheme — the choice is yours.
