Colour schemes for weddings are always a hard decision to make, there are so many things to take into consideration, from what the venues surroundings look, to what sort of theme the bride and groom have chosen.

In recent years, it seems that colour schemes have taken inspiration from the world of fashion and from Mother Nature.  Gone are the days of garish blobs of ill placed colour, and instead we more often see sophisticated pallets of colours that are the perfect fusion of the bride and grooms personality and chic seasonal trends.

Vintage trends have seen a huge rise in popularity over the last few years thanks to the likes of Downton Abbey and Mad Men, and its not just vintage themes that have seen a rise, old school traditional colours, flowers and gowns are also seeing a huge comeback.

One of the hottest trends for 2013 is an all white affair, but this crisp colour scheme is a traditional one that dates back many ,many years., granted it has been given a metallic, modern twist for this year, but an all white wedding is the must have trend for 2013.

White colour schemes are perfect as they will fit in beautifully with any theme and any venue, this crisp, cool colour is perfect for any season, but can be given a twist to make it a little more personal.  Metallic accents are perfect for winter weddings, think sparkling silver candle holders, like these from Christmas Time  which will soften the cool white them with glowing, romantic candlelight. Why not opt for some sparkling silver and diamante jewellery to add some glamour to the day? This stunning DKNY stone set watch from The Watch Hut is perfect as a gift for your maids or for a treat to yourself, its understated sparkle and delicate design will add a real sense of simplicity and opulence to your look.

For an autumnal wedding, look to mother nature for inspiration, use pine cones and crisp autumn leaves on tables, to jazz them up why not use a metallic, copper pain that will again add some seasonal warmth  to your displays.

Summer weddings are perfect for adding some pastel shades such as pinks and greens. The Diana bridesmaid dress from Monsoon comes is a stung range of pastel shades and is the perfect length for warmer summer months.
