How to add colour to your wedding

Most brides and grooms want at least one colour to feature in their wedding (unless they go for an all white wedding) but other than the bridesmaid dresses how else can you bring your colour through? Check out this blog for a few hints and tips on how you can do this. Don’t forget to share the page so we can help others too!


This is probably one of the easiest ways. Be sure to search for type of flowers, flower colours and styles of bouquets that you like before you meet with your florist. I always recommend to have empty vases on your top tables or around the room and add your bouquets and your bridesmaids bouquets to these. It saves you buying more flowers and saves your bouquets.

2. Chair Covers

Chair covers definitely makes the most impact to your venue. Adding an organza sash in your chosen colour theme, along with additional extras like ribbons and flowers, make such a difference. If your venue has wooden or Chiavari chairs, these can also be dressed up to tie into your colour scheme.

3. Wedding Stationery

Colour can be added to your wedding stationery through the actual design or by using coloured card, alternatively you can use decorations to add the colour - ribbon, buttons & jewels all work well. The chosen stationery style should be used right from the save the date’ through to the wedding breakfast menus and table plans.

4. Napkins & Runners

Napkins & runners are also a great and easy way to bring your colour theme to life. Go for coloured napkins but if you struggle to find them in your chosen colour scheme, wrap a ribbon round and add further accessories such as a vintage brooch, foliage or flowers for an extra special touch.

5. Cakes

Your cake can be as colourful or as fancy as you like! Add coloured icing, coloured flowers (either real, silk, or iced) or ribbon, lace, diamante detailing and brooches.

6. Favours

Favours can also tie into your colour scheme, use coloured sweets in pretty jars, or coloured macaroons wrapped in cellophane and tied with a ribbon. You could also make cookies, (or have them made if you are not a keen baker!) and iced in your chosen colour. Another great option is to have candles, packaged in either organza gift bags, coloured boxes or jars tied with your choice of coloured ribbon.

7. Table Decoration

This is one of my favourites and lets us get creative! Anything and everything can become decorations, from an array of colourful flowers in jars, vases & tea pots to colourful ceramics, candles, glass jars and bottles. It's easy to see why we love this part of our job!

8. Hanging Decoration

Don’t think you only have the tables to decorate. You have the whole room! So use it to its full potential. Flowers can be hung in single vases or in baskets or go big with a hanging floral centre pieces, still a big trend for 2017. Or add hanging ribbon as a top table backdrop or draped from the ceiling. This look can easily be muted back to be a mix of three pastel colours. Paper lanterns and pom poms also look great as hanging decorations and make such a difference to an empty space.

9. Place Names

You don’t have to stick to the standard place cards you can get as fun and creative as you like! Paper is still a big wedding trend for 2017, so why not try some origami style place names? If you are having an Easter wedding we love these fun little eggs. Add flowers for hair, a face and the guests name and your done! These bath salt bottles are a classic favour, but can also double up as a place name. Simply add the guests name on a label or card and then tie around the bottle neck with a ribbon, add salts that match your colour scheme and voila!

10. Dessert table

Dessert tables continue to be big for 2017, and it's understandable, they can look amazing! And again allow you to dial up your colours, from crockery to cake stands to flowers, have fun and get creative!

We hope this has given you some inspiration for your wedding. If you would like Pink Blossom Weddings to help you bring colour to your wedding, please get in touch at
