Colour sets a mood
Colour is so important as it sets the overall mood and feel of a wedding. Think of it this way - if you attended a wedding which had red up lights beaming in the room to give it that slight red tinge overall - how would you feel? It would give you that boost of energy, it would feel passionate and romantic yet quite intense. On the flip side, if you attended a wedding which used blue up lights, it would give you almost the opposite feeling. You'd immediately feel calm, relaxed, and down to earth and stable.
Your favourite colour?
If you have a favourite colour you are considering, look into the meaning of the colour. If that colour matches the mood you want to portray for your wedding - then go for it! Weddings are all about you two as a couple and why not use your favourite colours to show your personalities in the styling. But if mood is more important to you, and your favourite colour is too intense, then maybe you need to consider another colour.
Not too much!
Make sure too that you don't go over the top with applying your theme colour absolutely everywhere in your styling. Many brides this year are using earthy tones as their base colours and only using bright pops of their theme colour here and there in their decor. Also using different tones of the same colour is a good way to go so you don't go overboard on the one tone of colour right through your design. We must remember some people's eyes are sensitive to vibrant colours too - so you don't want half your guests going home with headaches.
Maybe an inspiration board could help?
