The word “romance” conjures up different things for different people. Some think of knights saving damsels in distress, others imagine long walks on a moonlit beach. For romantic themed weddings, most picture soft colors, lots of floral, and flowing gowns. If this is what you are wanting for your ceremony, one of these three romantic wedding color schemes can help you along your way.
Are you having a daytime ceremony, or holding your wedding in a blooming garden or conservatory? A combination of pale greens and oranges would make the event very stylish, without taking away from the romantic theme. If you choose to go with pale orange dresses for your attendants, than choose either emerald or peridot jewelry for a delicate detail that will truly stand out. With green apparel, choose topaz or citrine gemstones. For flowers, choose a darker orange to make a greater impact against the other pale colors. Décor in shades colors can easily overpower the soft look desired at romantic wedding. To avoid this, balance the green and orange accents with white or cream.
Lilac and champagne will also complete one of the most beautiful romantic wedding color schemes. Perfect for a formal ceremony in a grand location such as a ballroom, bring the colors into the décor by draping silk over the chairs and using branches of lilacs instead of regular flowers. Lilac silk or chiffon dresses will help bring your wedding party into the scheme. You could wrap your guest gifts in lilac boxes with champagne ribbons to help them remember the beauty of this special occasion. If you are looking to add a little oomph to these colors, accents of silver will make them even more dramatic. When choosing bridesmaids dresses, keep in mind that champagne would probably be easier than lilac for most people to pull off.
Are you a unique personality? You can show that in your wedding while still having a romantic feel. Try a dull platinum silver with a pale honeydew green. These colors will work with both formal and relaxed gatherings. They also look beautiful on all skin tones. With platinum dresses, each of your bridesmaids will feel like the belle of the ball. If you are a hometown girl, keep it from seeming too uptight by adding fun elements to your décor, like wedding cake with a funky design. For a classic look, choose green or white floral for both the bouquets and centerpieces.
Once you have made a choice from all the various options for romantic wedding color schemes, you can start planning the finer details of your wedding. Use the colors you picked to help you purchase the other elements needed for your big day such as flowers, dresses for your bridesmaids, and décor. The colors you choose can also be used in the details of your cake and the special touches like wedding souvenirs. Keep in mind you will only have one wedding. Make sure it is the one you always dreamed of.
