Using accent colours is a very effective way of adding style and individuality to your wedding day. What's an accent colour? It's a single colour that you use against a neutral palette (which might be white, beige, grey) to add a contrast. So for a wedding, you could choose accent colours for your shoes, your flowers, your table decorations, confetti .... It's also an inexpensive way of styling your wedding and you can choose your favourite colour too. However when using a particular colour it's best to choose a fairly strong hue - soft pastels like pale pink, lemon yellow and baby blues won't work so well. So I'd recommend brights in pinks, blues, greens, purples, oranges, yellows - and of course you can also use metallics as accents in silver and gold.
