One of the first things any couple needs to do when planning a wedding is to decide upon the style of the wedding - in particular the wedding theme and the wedding colour scheme.
The theme and colours are central to the day and will flow through each and every part of it, from the outfits to the favours. Knowing your wedding theme and being aware of your colour scheme up front will help to make life easier when taking decisions for the dress, reception venue and much more, so it is essential you decide upon them sooner rather than later.
For many, the theme will be a traditional white wedding with many couples opting for a supporting pastel colour to complement the white gown, or alternatively a deep sumptuous red or purple depending upon the time of year for the wedding. For others, perhaps those who have a particular fondness for all things art deco, or to whom the orient holds great meaning, a variation on the traditional theme could be the order of the day.
The theme and colour help set the tone for the day and can also provide both the wedding party and all of the guests with a memorable and impressive experience. They can reflect your personalities, hobbies and interests and give your wedding the individuality and flair that it merits. Overall, choosing a theme and colour scheme that you are happy with early on in the planning stage will lead to a co-ordinated day where every aspect blends together seamlessly with one another, and in turn this coordination reflects the hard effort that that have been put into organising the day.
