When choosing the colour scheme for your wedding it tends to be a subconscious reflection on your personality and can be an indication of how you imagine your future marriage to be.
You may have decided on your colour or colours already, and had these colours in mind for years and years before your wedding.
Your choice of colours may be introduced into your weddings by the invitations, table decorations, the flowers, the bridesmaids dress or even your own wedding dress.
Some bride and grooms will choose their colours based on the theme of their wedding, and some will choose colours to fit in with the time of year, such as soft pastels for Spring, deep rich colours for Winter and bright contemporary colours for Summer and muted tones for Autumn.
Other couples will plan their wedding colours around the venue they have chosen.
