Add bold pops of colour

If you want to include colour without being overwhelming, bold pops are your friend! You can incorporate a fun and colourful vibe into your wedding decor with strategically placed focal points around the venue.

Suggested spots:

  • The head table
  • Ceremony backdrop
  • Dance floor
  • Cake and sweets table
  • Photo booth backdrop

Choose complementary colours

Not all your colour has to be bold! And in fact, you could have bold pops of colour and other complementary colours to support your decor theme.

For example, bold pops of pink will be beautifully paired with pastel pink and purple flowers in the bouquets and centrepieces.

Link your day together with colours that match well (unless deliberate monotone is your thing!). Add similar shades in the form of bright candles or napkins and a runner on the tables.

Have fun with signage

Your stationery and signs are a beautiful space to include a little bit of colour! In addition to the actual signs, consider what the signs will be on, near or around. A table with a colourful tablecloth? Or how about an easel with a gorgeous flower arrangement or bright green plant next to it?




Beautiful flowers

Use your wedding flowers to add colour to your wedding. Your florist will be able to guide you on what’s in season as well as which flowers and colours will match your overall theme perfectly.




Use interesting textures

Textures are a gorgeous way to enhance your colourful wedding theme!

  • Fabrics – hello table runners, interesting tablecloths, napkins, chair decor and a fabric streamer installation.
  • Bare wood tables will show off colourful runners, napkins and candles beautifully.

Colourful attire

An obvious, but very effective way to add colour to your wedding is in the attire! If you’re bold, a statement suit or dress may be the way to go. But colourful accessories are just as perfect – shoes, belt, socks, tie, nail polish and head pieces.

Don’t forget about the wedding party – dress them up in your favourite shades of your wedding colour and watch as the theme comes to life!
