Having a unique color palette ensures that your wedding decorations looks more polished and beautiful. Color palettes depend on the season in which you have your wedding. A winter color palette differs greatly from a spring color palette and a fall color scheme.

Your wedding color palette also depends on your preference and the location of the wedding. As you know, while a beautiful and harmonious color scheme that is pleasing to the eye, makes a bold statement; colors that clash have quite a jarring effect and so should be strictly avoided.
Spring Wedding Color Scheme

Spring is the perfect time to opt for soft pastel colors that spell romance. You have to coordinate various elements of the wedding from the cake, centerpieces, and flowers, to the candles, ribbons, and shoes, to carry out this color theme.
Wedding Reception Hall Table Setting
You can use colors like lavender, lime green, pale yellow, light blue, pink, and peach to create a beautiful color palette. You can even choose your favorite color, say pink, and use shades in varying intensity for decorations. This will give a very cohesive look and feel to the decorations and make for a great color palette.

You can even use black paired with another color to give a dramatic effect to your wedding reception. Pairing black with red or with blue is trending in modern wedding color themes.
Wedding Decoration
A green color palette, complete with green-colored decorations and flowers, is one of the perfect wedding colors for spring. It is best to pair green with one more color for visual interest. Green with orange or green with purple are some of the best combinations for a spring wedding.
Fall Wedding Color Palettes
Banquet Tables
If you are having a wedding in fall, then you are very lucky because you can choose from a lot of gorgeous colors. Autumn is the best time for a wedding as you can use a lot of warm and rich colors that are inspired from nature. Gold, yellow, copper, orange, peach, and brown are some of the best colors.
Wedding favors
Remember, the colors you choose for your wedding reflect the mood and ambiance of your wedding. Fall colors should be incorporated into wedding favors, flowers, table linens, wedding cake, bridesmaid dresses, and accessories.
Centerpiece of Purple Flowers
Rich chocolate and purple work beautifully together, are sophisticated and perfect for an autumn wedding. The wedding bouquets with purple-colored flowers like lavender, lilacs or roses, purple-colored table centerpieces and chocolate-colored table linens seldom fail to impress.
Winter Wedding Color Palettes

You can use bright and bold colors for a winter wedding for a dramatic look. Winter wedding colors can be anything from fuchsia, turquoise, red, and purple to the more sober white, lime green, and pale pink.
You can be as flamboyant as you like and also use colors like gold and copper. A popular color for winter wedding decoration is red. You can pair red with black for a striking color combination, or you can use red with white for a more understated elegance.
