8 wedding colour scheme ideas
It can be hard to agree on a colour scheme for your wedding. Perhaps you have one colour in mind but don’t know which colours go with it? Or maybe you have no idea (or too many!) and just need to make a decision.
Here’s 8 beautiful colour schemes we’ve put together for you to give you a little bit of inspiration for your Isle of Man wedding day!
Lilac and pale blue
In nature, purple is rare and so it has a sacred meaning, making it a perfect colour for a wedding. Lilac flowers can work as decorative pieces and in the bouquet, or you can use lilac in a big feature, for example as the colour of your bridesmaids’ dresses. Use a dusty or sky blue shade as a complimentary colour. These two cool and calming tones work well together as well as with metallic.

Fuchsia and poppy red
Pink represents love and nurturing and using it in the shade of fuchsia will give you a bright pop of colour in your wedding. Team this with a bold poppy red to really bring this vibrant colour to life, great for a summer wedding.
Wine and navy
If you prefer a darker colour scheme, then pairing wine and navy can give you the perfect combination. Use one as a lead colour and the other as subtle accents. You can have small nods to the colour scheme such as lipstick in a wine shade and navy ribbon accessories for the bridesmaids, or big gestures such as centrepieces or a dark bouquet.
Yellow and green
If you are having an outdoor spring/summer wedding then using yellow and green is the best way to celebrate this. Choose a bright yellow such as canary and a grass green to give a feeling of nature in your wedding.

Pink and green
This seems like an odd pairing but if you get the shades right, you’ll find a winning combination. For a delicate touch try a soft blush pink and sage green. Compliment with a light peach and/ or cream. Or if you want a bolder approach, try mint green with a coral pink, which will give you just the right amount of femininity with a bright pop. An easy way to smooth out the contrast with this combination is to include some metallic golds.
Purple and black
Again, for those who want a bit of a darker colour scheme choose some of the darkest colours on the spectrum! It depends on how much of a gothic look you want with how heavily these colours will feature but bringing together black with a deep purple really achieves this look.
Blue and white
This timeless pairing can be achieved with any shade of blue. A dark navy will contrast the white more starkly or you could use a pale blue to give a classic look.
Shades of the same colour
If you have a favourite colour and haven’t found a perfect match for it, don’t panic, you can use the same colour in a different shade! Pinks, greens and blues are all very versatile and range from pale pastel colours to deep and daring shades. If you’re hoping to include some Manx Tartan in your colour scheme, you can pick out the coloured threads and use these as the basis of your wedding colours. Great a colour chart or board of your main and then complimentary colours to visualise the final effect!
