Choose A Color Palette

The first step in incorporating color into your wedding decor is selecting a cohesive color palette. A great starting point is to consider your personal preferences, the season, and the overall theme of your wedding. To finalize your color palette, select two or three harmonious main colors and complement them with a few accent shades. If you’re in need of inspiration, browse our blog and Instagram to help you discover the perfect combination of colors that reflects your style and vision.

Table Settings & Linens

Your table settings are a huge piece of your wedding reception, so they are a great place to start when it comes to implementing your color palette! Play with your table linens by selecting napkins, tablecloths, and table runners that coordinate with your color palette, making sure to incorporate a few neutral tones as well. We also love using colorful glassware and dinnerware to add the perfect pops of color to any place setting! View all of our table top rentals here.

Creative Lighting

Lighting can dramatically transform the ambiance of your wedding venue. Incorporate colored lighting, such as string lights, fairy lights, or uplighting, to wash the space in your chosen colors. Soft, warm hues can create a romantic and intimate atmosphere, while bold and bright lighting can add an element of excitement to the celebration.

Colorful Drapery & Backdrops

Elevate the aesthetic appeal of your venue with colorful drapery and backdrops. Drapery provides the perfect opportunity to use flowing fabrics in your chosen palette to create a dreamy and ethereal atmosphere. Plus, it’s also an ideal way to transform any ballroom or wedding venue to fit your exact palette and aesthetic. You can also explore our backdrops and utilize them in a variety of ways, from photo backdrops to seating charts! To coordinate a seating chart with your color palette, opt for a neutral black or white backdrop and use colorful escort cards in your chosen color scheme.
