How to choose your wedding linen colour scheme
When you’re planning your wedding, the colours you choose will be of vital importance to the whole day. They’ll likely dictate the scheme for everything including flowers and bridesmaids dresses, right down to the table linen. If you want your special day to have a cohesive theme that begins with your save the date cards and ends with your wedding favours and table decorations, you’ll want to come up with a colour scheme that can be incorporated into all of the different elements of your day.
At Simply Linens, we have years of experience helping couples marrying in Essex organise their wedding linen hire, so we’ve put together some of our top tips for choosing your perfect wedding colours.
Think about your venue
Location is everything and most couples will probably choose where they’re getting married before they choose anything else and so this may dictate your colours somewhat. For instance, if you’re getting married in a grand stately home with lots of deep, rich colours everywhere, you may well take inspiration from that. If, however, you’re getting married in an open field, you’ll possibly choose lighter, pastel shades.
Do you have any must-haves for the day?
It’s a good idea early on to get your priorities straight. Have you always envisaged a wedding venue filled with orange chrysanthemums? Or do you desperately want to include gothic black candelabras on the tables? It’s no good, picking out a colour scheme and then discovering the things you want don’t work with it. If there’s a particular detail you and your fiancé view as a must-have, take that as your starting point for planning your colours.
Change with the seasons
When your wedding is could have a huge bearing on your colour scheme. Taking table linen as an example, if you wanted a rich, sumptuous design such as our Georgian range but were getting married in spring or summer, you may well feel that colours such as Duck Egg, Cerise or White are most appropriate. However, if you were having, say, a December wedding, you may want something more wintery, such as Burgundy, Purple or Red.
What do you love?
Ultimately, your wedding day is about you and your partner so pick colours that you love. If you absolutely detest green, don’t go choosing it just because it will go with the venue. This is your day and you want to look back at it and love every single thing about it so pick colours that you both like yourselves and you can’t go wrong.
