For creatively-minded couples, choosing a color palette for your special day is one of the best parts of wedding planning! This is your big chance to really express yourselves, and create a beautiful and colorful space that is unique to you. 

There are many ways to incorporate your color palette into your wedding. Invitations, save-the-dates, and other paper ephemera are one of the first choices a couple makes when planning their wedding, and presents a great chance to choose the colors that you like. 

But what about after that?


Don’t worry – you’ll have plenty more chances to incorporate your chosen color palette into your wedding. If you need some ideas, here are a few great ones that we absolutely love for putting your wedding colors on full display.


This one may seem obvious, but it’s a classic for a reason. Flowers not only add elegance to a space, but help to brighten and lighten up everything around them. And the best part? They can come in nearly every color you can imagine!

Despite what you may think, including flowers in your wedding does not mean that green has to be one of your wedding colors. Many couples are using unexpected combinations of flowers and plants to set the tone for their wedding that don’t include the color green at all. Many dried flowers and plants include stalks of muted browns and golds, which pair beautifully with other autumn or winter-themed colors.


If you can’t find the colors you want in nature, you can always opt for artificial flowers. Sola Wood Flowers offer custom, hand-dyed flowers made of the root of the tapioca tree that are just as beautiful as the real thing.

Table linens, napkins & runners

Your reception is a great opportunity to incorporate your wedding colors. Table linens make an excellent backdrop, while table runners, napkins, and even your plates and glassware can all be carefully chosen to reflect the color palette you’ve chosen.

It’s important not to over-do it, however. If you already have a colorful table linen, consider pairing it with white or neutral tableware. Likewise, if your linens are a neutral color, choosing colorful plates, napkins, and runners will really liven up the reception space.


Spruce up the wedding cake

Who says a wedding cake has to be all-white? Frosting and fondant can be dyed any number of beautiful colors to match your color palette, and colorful flowers made of frosting are a classic.

Want to take this one step further? Surprise your guests with a cake that is colorful on the inside. Cutting open a pristine white cake to reveal a soft dusty blue, pink, or even an entire rainbow of colors is a memorable way to incorporate your wedding colors into the cake-cutting ceremony.

Inventive cocktails

Who doesn’t love the idea of a specially-made cocktail for your wedding? Coming up with a fun and inventive drink lets couples express their individual tastes, both literally and figuratively. 


You can opt for using brightly colored liquors, such as green Midori, blue curacao, or red Campari. You can also dress up your drink using colorful garnishes, such as pieces of fruit, cocktail umbrellas, and colorful straws.

Don’t forget the glassware! Cocktail cups and glasses can be found in all sorts of colors, and can even make a simple glass of water look good.

Attire & accessories

Of course, no wedding is complete without beautiful attire. Whether it’s a bride in her beautiful gown, a sharply-dressed groom, or a row of bridesmaids in lovely, flowing dresses, clothing is definitely one of the most important parts of any wedding celebration.

Your bridesmaids dresses, groomsmen’s attire, and matching accessories are one the the best ways to express your wedding colors. However, that doesn’t mean that your entire wedding party has to match. 


Mixing and matching bridesmaid’s dresses has become a popular trend in recent years. Some people are opting for dresses in different styles and lengths, but that all feature the same color. Others are choosing multiple colors from the bride’s wedding palette and each picking a different color to wear. 

It can be difficult to find just the right colors and styles to pull this trend off. Luckily, Bella Bridesmaids has a massive selection of bridesmaids dresses, groomsmen’s attire, and even accessories to choose from. They offer dresses in many different styles and colors, so you are sure to find something to match your wedding’s colors.


When it comes to incorporating your wedding colors into your special day, your only real limit is your imagination. Get as creative as you like, but always remember that less is more. Your wedding colors will look the most beautiful and elegant when used against neutral backdrops, or as accessories to an already-beautiful venue. Remember, sometimes less is more!
