The top wedding colour palettes for 2022

Wedding colour palettes are chosen with a lot of consideration. The colours you use in your wedding are powerful in their ability to convey meaning and evoke certain feelings. The right colour can set the tone for your entire wedding, whether you’re looking to go bold or keep things simple and classic.

Most couples choose a colour theme and then build the design of their wedding around that colour scheme. A theme can help guide the decisions you make about your wedding design; from the colours you choose for your wedding invitations and wedding decor to the colours of your bridesmaid dresses and the flowers in your bouquets.

The first step in choosing a wedding colour palette is to think about your theme. What colours reflect your wedding vision? Are you having a rustic or elegant wedding? Are you having a summer wedding or a winter wedding?

Neutral Tone

Wedding colour palettes are often chosen with a neutral theme in mind. Neutral colour palettes can be used to reflect simplicity without being too loud. Most couples like to work with whites, creams, and greens.


The bold theme sets the tone for the entire wedding. Bold colours can be used to draw attention to important elements of your wedding and reflect your style. For example, a vintage wedding at a hotel ballroom may call for a red, white, and black colour palette.


The blush wedding colour palette is a lovely mix of warm and cool tones. Many couples are choosing this palette for their weddings because it’s a classic and timeless wedding colour scheme. This hue can be used all year, including for spring and summer weddings.

Our recommendation is to choose complementary colours for your venue. We never like to ‘fight the space,’ so if the venue has a specific colour carpet or wall covering, it’s nice to complement the features we already have.
