At Indian Creek, we know that designing a wedding is quite the task for you and your partner. There are so many different elements to consider when choosing decor, venue and vendors. You may be wondering what is most important to consider when choosing decor. It is usually best to start with overarching themes like the color scheme and what type of mood you want your ceremony and reception to have.
There are a couple of things you should consider when choosing your color scheme for your wedding. First, let’s talk about what has been popular in the past.
In 2020, pastel colors were a huge trend. This means sage green, blush pink, slate blue and fog gray. These were often incorporated into bridesmaids” dresses, table cloths, napkins, flowers and any other decor you can think of. This is a pretty stark contrast to the bright and bold colors that have trended in the past.
These colors are great options for a more natural and neutral feel. They work great if you are having an outdoor wedding and are probably the best fit for spring, but can really be worked into any season.
With 2021 among us, that means a whole new year of new trends. So, what should you be looking out for? If you want your wedding to be as on trend as possible, you may be wondering what is expected this year. It may seem a bit contradictory, but it looks like bright bold colors will be popular, as well as neutrals.
If you’re looking for a color scheme that is a bit unexpected and can almost be considered a throwback to older trends, choosing bright and bold colors for your wedding scheme is the way to go. This means fuschia, yellow, teal, bright red and cobalt. Use these colors for your table settings, bridesmaids’ dresses, favors, stationery, flowers and whatever else you like.
If you are looking to keep things a bit more toned down, neutrals may be the way to go. These could be various shades of brown and gray with additions of white and black. This will likely be very trendy and is a great option for those who are more low-key.
How to choose
Choosing your wedding colors doesn’t have to be as difficult as it may seem. The first thing you will want to do is gain some inspiration. Check out Pinterest or other wedding websites to see what exactly you like and what exactly you don’t like. This will make it easier to narrow down what you are looking for. Knowing the things that you don’t want will make it easier to say no to things.
After you’ve picked a few options that are your style, you can begin to consider other elements. If you want your colors to align with whatever season you are getting married in, choose a scheme that highlights that season. This could mean greenery for summer, warm tones for fall, cooler tones for winter or bright colored flowers for spring.
You may also want to consider what will look best for your venue. At Indian Creek, we can accommodate any decor or color scheme, but check out what kind of colors the venue already has going on and try to choose colors that won’t clash.
