Now, this is slightly tricky as it might be too much or less or too cheesy.

We all incline some colors a little more. Hence the easiest way is to pick one that you mutually like. Now, look at all possible tones in the same color. For instance, if you pick purple, the bride can go for a darker shade of purple while the groom for a lighter lilac shade. Hence this trend lets you experiment from dark to light or vice versa. Some colors that look the best for this idea are pink, peach, yellow, purple, and green.

Picking one common color from each other’s ensemble gives an effortless complimenting vibe. In this, the groom can match the tone of his safa with the dupatta for the bride. This way both of them have one statement piece while everything else remains exclusive.

One subtle color can stands out beautifully together to match the spirits of each other. This is one of the easiest and most wonderful ways for different hued outfits. The bride and groom wearing beige attire with matching golden embroidery color are surely amazing.

Pro Tip: 

Two shades of the same color give a gradient or ombre effect. For this, the colors may not necessarily be matching, and may even contrast with each other, yet look great together.

Top color combinations for a couple:

With Gold: Red / Deep Green / Blue / Black / White / Maroon

  • With Orange: Peach / Ivory
  • With Pink: Light Blue / Lemon Green / Grey / Pastel Yellow/ Bright Red / Cream
  • With Red: Ivory / Beige / Black / Gold
  • With Royal/Cobalt Blue: Gold / Ivory / Cream / Beige

Now to combine these colors pick one that is in sync with your event decor. For instance, for your Sangeet, if you pick white and peach, the groom can pick a white tuxedo, and the bride a peach gown. There you go!
