When planning a wedding, it’s all too easy to feel like every single decision, big or small, ridiculously important or completely minuscule, has the power to make or break your special day. From finding the perfect dress you’re guaranteed not to second-guess later (good luck!), to choosing the right food for midnight munchies (funnel cake bar or nacho bar? C’mon people, help a sister out) wedding planning is no easy feat. And so, we’re here to make one of your biggest decisions as fail-proof as possible.That, of course, would be your colour scheme.
We’ve taken inspiration from TTHBlooms—style-setter, Taylor Tomasi Hill’s spectacular flower arrangements—to create our very own guide for choosing the most elegant and charming colours that will set the scene for the big day. From classic white-on-white, to bold punches of yellow (in the chicest way possible, naturally) here are 10 standout inspirations for your wedding colour scheme.

For a colour scheme that takes the (wedding) cake for being the most elegant, go for a variety of whites from eggshell to ivory. We suggest accenting tables with a metallic hue, such as mercury vases, and having bridesmaids wear cream dresses.
Go sweet and fresh with the perfect mix of shades of peach from dark to white. Have bridesmaids in two shades of peach and accent the table with nameplates with peach detailing.
Having a hot summer wedding? Go for juicy bright hues, with bubblegum pink, lemon yellow, and tangy tangerine. We suggest keeping the pink and lemon colours to solely the arrangements, and having bridesmaids wear a juicy shade of tangerine.
There’s no question that the majority of brides dream of a pink-filled wedding. Make yours standout by using light and dark shades of pink in equal doses.
Aubergine & Green
Whismy and elegant, without being too girly, cream and green with hints of deep aubergine make for a chic colour scheme. Have bridesmaids wear cream or deep purple, and be sure to include plenty of green buds in the arrangements.
Having a wedding in the fall? Then warm, autumnal hues are a must, and the chicest way to do it is with orangy-red, deep purple and cream. Have bridesmaids wear red or purple, and balance the tables with the perfect mix of both white and cream table linens.
Blush & Grape
Elegant and feminine, blush, ivory and grape make for an enchanting scene. Have bridesmaids wear cream or blush, and accent tables with a touch of dark purple on the nameplates, table numbers, or menus.
Strawberry & Tomato
For a fun twist on a classic, mix tomato-red blooms with your typical pink-filled bouquet. Have bridesmaids wear pale pink, and accent the room with pink details, allowing the red blooms in the arragenements to really pop.
Go for the dramatic with rich shades of maroon mixed in with raspberry and pale pink. For a fun twist, add just a few random lemon-yellow blooms to the bouquets, while detailing the room with just berry shades.
Throwing a purple-themedwedding? Go for blooms in various shades of violet accented with green buds andflowers. Have bridesmaids wear light or dark purple, and include little pops of purple at each placesetting.
