Any time wedding colors and style comes to mind, I can’t help but to be reminded of my wife’s obsession with the color fuchsia the time we were planning our own wedding. In all my life I have never heard of any such color before…not that I am very good at colors anyways. And I remember the troubles the one handling our wedding decorations went through getting that color…and my wife was unyielding in changing her very favorite yet difficult to find fuchsia. On my part I brought a teal blue suit with me from the UK which I just slid in with a bow tie and suit hankie that looked more violet than fuchsia. I ended up giving her the pet name my “Fuchsia Baby” and she on her part calls me her “Teal Blue Baby”. That was one fun part of our wedding colors and style choice. What’s more fun? Try pronouncing “Teal Blue Baby” 10 times without break and see if you will get it right…that became a game we enjoyed up until now.
Everything about a wedding is important. Choosing your wedding colors and style or outfits is one of the first and important decisions would-be couples make. The bride and grooms’ style is one of the defining features that makes their wedding beautiful in its own right. Of course, you will want to be looking at those wedding pictures and how elegant your outfits (suit and gown) and colors played out for many years to come and still want to look trendy.
For almost every wedding, color plays a major role in defining the décor and ultimate tone of the occasion. There is something really beautiful about the way a wedding comes together and a good choice of wedding colors or style makes your wedding stand out. Everybody is impressed by a beautiful wedding décor or color theme. Your wedding color or style may well be one of the most noticeable attractions of your “once in a lifetime” or “most beautiful” day.
When making that decision, it is important that you look at a number of different styles available in order to arrive at the best possible choice that brings out the best in you. I remember how my wife got so “hooked on” other people’s wedding pictures and videos on the internet trying to look out for one thing or the other that best suits her wedding ideas. Just like my wife, if you’re looking for inspiration for your upcoming wedding, I recommend you check out The Black Tux’s suit and tuxedo rentals selection which hosts a lot of amazing styles and color schemes for just the perfect wedding you dream of. Trust me, when it comes to weddings, using the right service and people specialized in the field goes a long way in making you pull off a wedding with no regrets.
At the most basic level, you may want to also choose colors or styles to match the season. There are some colors and styles that best fits the season in which one is getting married. Oh yes, there are summer colors, fall colors, spring colors and autumn colors. Just like in our normal daily life, there are some colors that one shouldn’t wear on a bright sunny day, etc., same way the experts know some colors and styles are best for or bring out the shine in the season in which one marries. Fall is here and I wanted to share with you some of the top trends for the season that I find very lovely, below. Seeing them makes me feel like getting married again.
It is also important to some people to choose colors based on their meanings and their personality types – what best represents them as a couple. One of the proven ways to know which color best suits one’s personality type is to take a color palette quiz and I would like to recommend one of such cool online quizzes I came across.

Others also consider what mood the colors create. OK, so white I’m told is symbolic of purity, innocence and cleanliness. Yellow generally symbolizes wisdom, happiness and intellectual energy. Orange represents joyfulness, enthusiasm and optimism. Red they say is the color of strength, health, and vitality. Red-orange is symbolic of desire, sexual passion, pleasure, and a thirst for action. Pink also is a great symbol of love and beauty. Purple is the color of royalty and can represent magic, mystery, creativity and strength. Blue is symbolic of youth, spirituality, peace and tranquility. Green is the color of harmony and balance, renewal and peace. Olive green is the traditional color of peace. Gold is a symbol of wealth and also representative of good health.
In fact, the list is endless and so are your choices. But at the end of the day, you can never go wrong when you use the experts. Everybody’s got a dream wedding color or style, right? What’s yours?
