Weddings are great occasions that celebrate the holy union of two souls. Moreover, Indian weddings are known for their colour and their brightness, making them an unmistakable spectacle in the nation. Full of pomp and circumstance, an Indian wedding is a perfect event for you to let your inner child out and let the colours do the talking. At the same time, decorating a wedding requires a lot of planning - everything has to be perfect for your big day! Whether it is a banquet hall or an outdoor wedding, the lighting to the seating arrangements have to be well thought out. Here is team Theme Weavers Designs - a royal and regal wedding planning firm to impart some tips and tricks as to which colour palettes to keep and ditch for the weddings of your dreams.

A modern wedding is ideal for the bride who is looking to steep herself in traditions while giving them a much-needed twist. Lovely shades of fuchsia can be used to add a touch of contemporary elements, as they look beautiful with any given aesthetic. In order to amp up the brightness factor for the wedding, saffron can be used to add a traditional element to the wedding. Saffron coloured decor will look ideal during the Haldi functions since it will look simply sublime with the hues of yellow in the Haldi. In order to add contrast to the function, varied hues of pink can be used to stay true to the theme of using fuschia as another base colour. From table runners in solid colours to centerpieces of roses and candles, this color palette is a great option for brides looking to change the vintage colours used in weddings.

A common colour palette that is very popular among brides is turquoise and beige. However, team Theme Weavers Designs advises against using this palette as it is very common and will not be able to differentiate your weddings from the rest of the crowd. Another big no-no is the fact that this palette is very common in beach weddings. Unless you have a beach wedding, opting for this palette can be a little redundant. Another colour palette that can be a bit too much on the eyes is using a rainbow colour palette. If done correctly, this can look breathtaking, but a common pitfall seen is that there are no neutral or supporting colours seen in the ethos of the wedding, making it seem too gaudy and harsh on the eyes. It will also be seen that the pictures that will be taken by the photographers will seem too oversaturated due to all the colours being used in the wedding.

Diamonds are a girl's best friend but have you considered opting for a jewel tones wedding? Bright colours like amethyst and ruby will look stunning in the context of a wedding since they will be able to attract and keep the attention of your guests for a long time period. At the same time, soft and pale colours like pink and blue can be used as supporting colours so that the brightness of the colours does not look too garish. Another romantic aspect of using jewel tones is that you can choose your birthstone and your partner’s birthstone and make a colour palette that is unique to both of you. In case you use jade and quartz as the dominant colours, muted shades of beige will go together with this in an ideal manner. On the other hand, using sapphire will match gold accents in the wedding with the utmost grace. So the bright colours can be used to make centerpieces made of glass or can be used to make neon signs and the light colours can be used to create a much-needed reprieve in the background.

One of the hardest questions is about your colour scheme. Your colour scheme will dictate everything about your wedding, even influencing your groom and groomsmen. Everything from the invitations to the place settings will use the colours you choose, so the colours should be selected carefully.
