Going Beyond Red and Black for a Las Vegas Wedding

I’ve got a confession.

I love boas and feathers. So if I were to have a Las Vegas wedding today, it would probably look like this.

But that classic Vegas look isn’t for everyone. It’s cool if it’s not right for the wedding you want to have. And if you don’t want to use red and black for your colors, you really don’t have to.

So, how do you go about choosing colors for a Vegas wedding? Start with:

1. Your Wedding Mood

What kind of experience do you want to create for your wedding day? Is it fun, intimate, elegant, whimsical? Your wedding colors play a huge part in setting the mood.

 

2. Favorite Colors

Your wedding should be an extension of the personalities of you and your sweetie. So why not include favorite colors if they go with your wedding mood?

 

3. Venue Inspiration

You’ll want to make sure your colors will work in your venue space. And if your venue is particularly colorful, you may even start by picking colors from the venue décor.

Recently we worked on a Las Vegas wedding with an elegant burnt orange, gray and ivory palette. The dark tones were perfect for an intimate gathering of family and friends for a fall wedding.

But with just a few tweaks in the colors, by making them lighter and brighter, for instance, you can change the mood to a fun summer wedding look. Like this:

Whichever colors you choose, you can still incorporate a Vegas feel with classic Las Vegas icons and shapes, updated or designed to fit your style.
