How do I choose the right colors for my wedding invitations?

Selecting the perfect colours for your wedding invitations is a critical part of setting the tone for your special day. At Print Harbour, we understand the significance of colour in creating the right mood and atmosphere. Here’s a guide to help you choose the ideal palette for your wedding invitations: 

Consider Your Wedding Theme and Venue

Start by considering the overall theme and venue of your wedding. Rustic weddings may call for earthy tones, while a beach wedding might suit blues and sandy hues. The venue’s colour scheme can also be a great source of inspiration.

Reflect Your Personal Style

Your wedding is a reflection of your personal style. Choose colours that you love and that speak to your personality. Whether it’s bold and vibrant hues or soft and romantic pastels, ensure your invitations feel true to you.

Seasonal Colours

The season of your wedding can influence your colour choice. Spring and summer weddings often feature lighter, brighter colours, while autumn and winter weddings may incorporate richer, deeper tones.

Colour Combinations and Balance

Consider using complementary colour combinations for a harmonious look. Balance is key – too many colours can be overwhelming, while too few may feel underwhelming. Typically, selecting two or three main colours works well.

Understand Colour Psychology

Different colours evoke different emotions. For example, blue can be calming and serene, while red can evoke passion and energy. Think about the emotions you want to evoke through your invitations.

Quality of Printing and Materials

Remember that different printing methods and materials can affect how colours look. Metallic inks, foil stamping, or textured paper can alter the appearance of colours. Always ask for samples to see how your colours will look in print.
