Feb 17, 2022

When it comes to wedding planning, there are countless details that a couple and the family have to pay attention to. Even if you hire a planner, the main decisions lie with you only and one such task of wedding planning is to select their wedding colors/themes. Color selection is as important as selecting your other wedding details like venue, flowers, outfits, jewelry, etc. And as you select a good color theme, the selection of flowers, decor pieces, installations, table linens, furniture, outfits, jewelry, and other kinds of stuff becomes easy. You will be easily able to narrow down your selection process. So, keep the task of color selection in the topmost priority list after you decide on the final date. 

Top Wedding Color Trends

It’s already the third month of this year and with everything changing rapidly, the color trend for weddings for this year is also different than the last one. Couples have started going a little lighter on the colors and even if they are going for dark colors, they are balancing the whole decor and color pretty well, so that the color does not look too loud and out of taste. The new-age couples are practical and experimentative and they are very open to new ideas and trends. We have noted down a few colors that may trend this year in weddings.
