Brides normally pick their wedding colors based on their personal tastes and not the colors’ actual meanings, but just like room color meanings are important considerations for a home or office, we feel wedding color meanings are also key to a successful wedding. After all, you want your guests–and most of all, you and your new spouse–to feel comfortable and enjoy your celebration.
Well sure enough, we found these wedding color meanings and thought it was perfect to share with all those of you who are/will be involved in the wedding planning process:
White represents purity, faith, light, and perfection.
Red, in Asian cultures, is associated with happiness and prosperity, but even in Western regions, it’s seen as a lively, cheery color so if you want to add that kind of mood to your wedding, be sure to insert pops of red.
Pink is associated with compassion, love, and unconditional love. But the best part about it is that, as a mashup of white and red, it “marries” :) the purity of white and the compassion of red, which sets the right tone to an event celebrating love.
Blue is considered a holy color, as it’s popular with depictions of the Virgin Mary and within Judaism. In other parts of the world, it also stands for immortality, divinity, and regality. If you’d like your wedding to have a more royal or religious mood, blue might be your color.
Purple also has royal associations, and represents power and faith in some regions–but in others it’s associated with mourning and sadness.
Last but not least, yellow is just cheerful and happy all around (and as such, perfect for warmer weather and Spring and Summer weddings): In fact, Hindus see it as a sacred color and Native Americans as one that means unconditional love.
