Wedding Color Motifs

Spring, Fall, Winter or Summer; color schemes to match every season

We all know how hard it is to choose the colors that do not clash but perfectly match the season we are to be wed in. Now, for some, colors that are not necessarily in season are absolutely abhorrent. Eye sores and nuisances alike, you would not want to be the couple whose wedding visually stood out in the worst way! Here are a few examples of what colors match which seasons and why they are the preferred selection by most.


Known for the season of flowers and the reawakening of nature, Spring brings all sorts of bright colors to the table. Think of Spring as the season where thin strands of light peer from the sky and highlight a whole carnival of colors.

A palette of pastel colors with brighter undertones are definitely a go-to color scheme; a perfect match to white or a creamier white to traditional weddings. Pastel is certainly for a more soft-spoken motif, a little easier on the eyes and a little less glaring. Spring weddings are a platform for chic color schemes. Let the pastel palette guide you on your way to having the most Spring wedding you can possibly have.
