The hues you choose for your wedding day are instrumental when it comes conveying the mood and personality of the celebration. “Colour registers in the same part of our brains that signals our emotions. You actually receive a lot more information from a colour than you can verbalize so choosing the right colour for your wedding day is huge,” says colour psychologist Janice Lindsay. “You can use colour as a way of breaking expectations and expressing your own unique point of view,” she adds.
We asked Lindsay to weigh in on some of the most popular wedding colours and what they say about your big day. Then we gathered together some ideas to inspire you — everything from cakes and flowers to gowns and gifts for your bridesmaids and groomsmen.
