Consider your venue: Take a look at your venue & visualize how the colours you choose will reflect in your wedding venue. The colours have to enhance the look of venue & not clash with it. Wedding halls are mostly painted white & this allows you to choose from ample options. When it comes to a banquet hall, the lighting also plays a role when you choose the wedding decor colours. Outdoor spaces & other neutral spaces will be easier to pick your wedding colours as they have lots of natural lighting.

Traditional wedding decor

Have you chosen your wedding dress? If you have already picked out your wedding dress, your wedding decor colours cannot be the same as them. Contrast colours go well for your wedding photographs much better than the same or similar colours. You can pair cool & warm colours together as they are opposites & go well together. For example, if you are going for the classic bridal red lehenga or saree, the same dark colours will result in camouflage. To highlight you look, choose a wedding decor with light colours & you will look radiant in it.
