What colours should you use for an autumn wedding in Gibraltar?

Sometimes it seems that making wedding decisions and planning everything to create the perfect day can actually be more stressful than choosing to get married in the first place. There are many different things to consider when getting married, from the food to the cake, and even the seating arrangement. And all of this assumes that you have a location and theme sorted too.

For anyone who has chosen to have their wedding in Gibraltar over the next few months, our experts at Sweet Gibraltar Weddings are here to help you. One of the key considerations of your wedding needs to be the colour scheme, which will then help you decide upon many other factors including the dresses and the table decorations.

Here are a few tips on choosing colours for your autumn Gibraltar wedding:

1. Autumnal colours match with almost anything

If you are looking to match the season to your wedding, then traditional autumnal colours will provide an excellent initial canvas, from which you can then choose other colours. Zesty orange and a rich chocolate brown suggest luxury and comfort, while also staying true to the changing season, and will work with a whole range of styles.

2. Keep it traditional

Traditional whites and creams are also perfect for autumn in Gibraltar. Not only does it allow for you to recreate the traditional flowing white wedding dress and white icing, but it will provide a stark contrast to the nature and autumnal colours outside, which will really draw attention to your outfit (as well as the cake!)

3. Pale blues work perfectly for a Gibraltar beach wedding

If you are choosing to get married on the beach, or on a cliff overlooking the sea, then matching your colour scheme to the sea is an excellent idea. The range of aqua blues and sea greens fit in perfectly with your exotic surroundings, and are unusual for a wedding, so will have your guests talking for a long time!
