What colour theme to choose

We have seen hundreds of beautiful wedding themes over the years, so we thought we would collect our favourites together and let you know what’s trending. Picking your theme is an important decision, as it influences many aspects of the whole day, from flowers and tableware to suits and bridesmaids dresses!

Sage Green

We have to start with one of the most popular themes that has taken the wedding industry by storm. Sage green is a refreshing colour that matches both warm and cool tones, making it a perfect option to match different decor choices and venues. It also has a natural and clean look, pairing well with both silver and gold cutlery which is great to suit your tableware preferences. Despite usually being chosen for Spring or Summer weddings, we think that sage green can be a beautiful wedding theme all year round!

Bare Rustic

This timeless wedding theme is perfect for modern couples looking for a more stripped back, natural feel that looks like it’s straight out of a magazine. Simply using a runner and no tablecloth allows the beauty of the wooden table to shine through and accentuates the crisp white details of the linen and china. The theme looks great for weddings in the colder months, but also perfect for summer if you add extra florals for warmth!


This theme is perfect for events all year round. The good thing about blues is that you can combine different shades and they all work well together, which means you don’t have to spend your precious time searching for all your accessories to be the exact same colour.

We love how the table theme above has incorporated lemons & yellow flowers for a pop of colour within the blues.


Pink is a theme that radiates romance, setting a colourful and happy tone for your wedding. A great way to include pink in your theme is to use varying complimentary shades throughout your day that all work together. Pink can also be combined with the sage tone of greenery in bouquets, centrepieces and floral arrangements for a real fairytale feeling.

Dark Modern

For those looking for a theme that is unique and modern, a darker colour scheme can look really impressive. Candles and fairy lights are a great way to bring light into your wedding day – they make the entire room look magical and romantic. This theme is ideal for weddings in the colder months, as it makes even the largest of venues feel intimate and cosy for a day with your loved ones. Using two slightly different shades of charcoal for the tablecloth and runner can add texture and depth to the table design. Using a lighter charger plate is also a great contrasting feature, such as the CMA Hire White Marbled Glass Plates pictured above.
