Cream Wedding Colour Theme
Cream is a neutral color it has a bit of the warmth of brown and the crisp, coolness of white. Cream can sometimes be seen as dull but can be teamed with other colors to liven it up. Cream has traditionally been seen as a conservative, background color. In some cultures, Cream garments can symbolize simplicity. Use the color Cream to provide a calm and relaxing atmosphere.

Colours to Compliment Cream Weddings
Cream is not as common as white, gold or ivory as a classic wedding colour but still looks stunning as the colour scheme at a wedding. When choosing colours to compliment Cream you could start with your favorite colour, the colour of a certain flower you must have at your wedding or even what colours suit your grooms and bridesmaids skin tones.
Every colour comes in different shades and tones so you are bound to find one that will be perfect for you. If you want your wedding to have warmth and feel welcoming you should use earthy tones combined with Cream such as browns, deep reds, burgundy, cranberry, orange and sage. Remember these colours don't have to take the attention away from the simplicity and relaxing feel of Cream but could be used as an accent colour. Balloons, table decorations, bridesmaid dresses, cravats or the waist coat of the groom along with ribbons on the flowers or even the cake would be the perfect examples or where you could introduce an accent colour along to compliment the Cream without overpowering it to create that perfect Cream wedding theme.
Cream can work amazing not only as the primary colour at a wedding but also when being used to add warmth to what are usually seen as cool colours. Using a touch of Cream to colour schemes such as duck egg blue, purple red or avocado green and chocolate will tone the colours down a little and make dark over powering colours less intense and more feminine. Black teamed with Cream creates a very sophisticated and classy look. Adding Cream to certain colours can change the look completely and help colours adapt to different seasons for example using Cream as the accent colour to Burgundy's, reds and rich purples will also give you a gorgeous luxurious colour scheme for winter weddings.
Colours to Avoid in a Cream Wedding
If you are going for that classy, elegant wedding most of us dream of there are some colours that will definitely not give that impression when teamed with Cream. The colours you should stay away from when using Cream as a colour in your wedding are extremely bright and neon colours. Some colours that just don't go with ivory are turquoise, hot pink, kiwi-green, neon orange, bright pinkish-purples, neon yellow along with any other glowing colour you can think of. All colours of them sorts paired with Cream detract from its calmness and should be avoided.
Cream Wedding Decorations
Decorations besides the bride of course are a fabulous way to make a wedding have everybody saying 'wow'. The perfect decorations should feature throughout your day displaying only the colours you have chosen for your theme. From cream flowers, balloons and confetti through to Cream chair covers, ribbons and candles for day and Cream napkins, table cloths, sparklers and centrepieces for night decorations can really make a wedding inviting and look stunning. Besides the usual decorations everybody thinks of its always nice to think hard and add personal touches that mean things to you to your decorations.
Cream Wedding Favours
Favours are the perfect way to say thank you to all your guests for attending your special day and will give them something they can keep to remind them of your wedding. Finding favours in Cream can be pretty hard that's where favour boxes and organza bags come in. Putting favours in small boxes or bags means you can give your guests anything you wish in any colour and they won't detract from your Cream theme as they will be concealed but also beautifully presented. Another option is to introduce that accent colour again whether it is burgundy or chocolate it will still fit in with your colour scheme and you may have more option when it comes to buying the favours. Traditionally favours were sugared almonds, chocolates wrapped in foil or candy of some sort. That would work well with having an Cream colour scheme as sugared almonds alone are the perfect shade of Cream whilst there is also foil covered chocolates in abundance Cream in colour, however if you plan to give something your guests can keep what about miniature Cream bubbles, Cream picture frames, Cream stationery it may be hard for you to find them so keep in mind that accent colour. For the kids activity books and jars filled with toffee, caramels or sweets would be a great idea and keep them amused through the speeches and toasts, perfect.
