Planning Colours for Your Wedding: Wedding Dress, Flowers, and More!
Dreaming about your wedding is one thing; planning it is another. Every aspect of your wedding must "fall in place" on the big day! If you've been to a wedding or several, you probably realise the importance of wedding colours. Here's a quick guide to help you plan your wedding colours.
Choose the Right Colours for Your Wedding Dresses
Many brides use their favourite colours for their wedding dresses - pink, red, fuchsia, burgundy, plum, mauve, purple, or blue. But before you choose colours, see if you can't find some photos of various weddings from the past. Please take a look at a variety of colour patterns and combinations before making your choice. You might see colours that you like much better than your usual favourites. Making notes in your wedding planner can help keep everything organised and make the process much easier.
Consider how the colours of your wedding dresses will look with other colourful items once it is all put together for the big wedding day. The bridesmaid dresses will be matched with flowers, tuxedos, mother of the bride dresses, flower girl dresses, accessories, and even the wedding decor.
Wedding Dresses with a Touch of Colour
A growing trend is to add a touch of colour to the bride's wedding gown. This is perfect for the bride who wants more than the traditional wedding gown. Some brides have colour sprinkled throughout their wedding gown with embroidery. The gorgeous embroidery patterns come to life on the wedding dress when colour highlights are added. These are usually available in various colours painted on an ivory white wedding gown.
Test Wedding Colour Combinations
Don't be afraid to match unusual colours before making your choice. Some colour combinations might surprise you. For example, not many would choose bright peach, bright yellow and white, but these are beautiful when coordinated in wedding flower arrangements with yellow dresses! Try various combinations to find the right wedding colours for you.
Choose Colours that Complement You
It's your special day. Choose colours that make you look lovely on your wedding day. If you look great in red, you'll probably look fantastic amidst red decor and bridesmaid dresses. Maybe you can add red embroidery colours to your wedding gown. Whatever colour suits you should work fine for the wedding.
Other things to consider before choosing your wedding colours include the colours of the church or building where the wedding will be held as well as the reception hall, the types of flowers available for that time of year (if using real ones), and the availability of wedding dresses in those colours.
Once you choose colours for your wedding dress and flowers, you're ready to start planning the wedding. You can find various wedding and bridesmaid dresses online and choose colours you love.
FAQ - FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Is it worth getting a wedding planner?
It depends on your personality and how much work you want to put into your wedding. If you're a person who enjoys planning every little detail, you probably don't need a wedding planner. But if you would instead enjoy your engagement and relax on your wedding day, then hiring a planner is worth it. A good wedding planner will take care of everything from booking vendors to ensuring the day runs smoothly. They can also be an excellent resource for advice and ideas and help you stay within your budget. So hiring a professional planner is the way to go if you want a stress-free wedding day.
What does a wedding planner do?
A wedding planner coordinates all the details of a client's wedding. This can include finding a venue and working with caterers to organise the music and flowers. A good wedding planner will be able to handle every aspect of the planning process, from start to finish, ensuring that the bride and groom can relax and enjoy their big day.
How much should you spend on a wedding planner?
There's no simple answer to this question, as the amount you'll need to spend on a wedding planner will vary depending on your specific needs and budget. However, you can generally expect to pay around 10-15% of your total wedding budget on a good wedding planner in the UK. So, if you're planning a £20,000 wedding, you should expect to spend at least £2,000 on a planner. Of course, you can always find cheaper options - but remember that this is one of the most important days of your life, so it's worth spending enough to get someone who can ensure everything goes off without a hitch!
What is the difference between a wedding planner and a coordinator?
A wedding planner is more like a project manager, while a coordinator handles the day-of logistics.
A wedding planner typically starts working a couple of months before the wedding date and is responsible for overseeing all the vendors and ensuring everything comes together on schedule. They usually have a vast knowledge of weddings, from venues to flowers to photographers.
A coordinator typically starts working with the couple only a few weeks before the wedding and is responsible for ensuring all the details (like timing, transportation, and vendor coordination) are handled on the wedding day. They usually don't have as much experience or knowledge about different aspects of weddings as a wedding planner does.
