Color is everything at a wedding. Sure, there are the classic white and black hues of dresses and suits, but there’s also so much more than that. Depending upon when you tie the knot, you could lean into the auburns and oranges of autumn or the rosy pinks and pale greens of spring. Without further ado, here are the colorful inspirations to embrace when you tie the knot.

Skip the standard white wedding cake and go for something that makes a statement. This bold blue cake from Nine Cakes in Hudson is a stunner.

Sure, you could opt for a white dress. But when pretty pink gowns like this exist, why wouldn’t you go for color?

Bridesmaids dresses are the perfect way to add a colorful pop into your wedding. For a winter ceremony, cranberry and oxblood tones are a sure fit.

The groom (and the groomsmen) will look extra spiffy in colorful suits and fun accents. Plus, who doesn’t love a chic bowtie?

Instead of opting for matching bridesmaid gowns, let your posse pick from a range of colors. The shades will look stunning in your wedding photos, too.
