As promoters, the colors you choose to represent your events can be a simple, direct way of reflecting your personality to others. The same way you may pick out your clothing to send out a signal about your mood and personality, the colors you choose for your event wristbands send a message as well. Wristbands become much more than proof of admission to an event for many guests. They can be a fashion accessory, a cherished memento, or a sort of trophy collected and prized by its owner long after the day of the event has passed. The shades chosen by a promoter can color much more than the wristband, they can color the memories of the event for years to come in the minds of those who were lucky enough to attend.
So Many Colored Wristbands, Which Will You Choose?
It is the first instinct of many individuals to pick out a wristband color for an event based on their own personal tastes. There is nothing wrong with picking your favorite color for an event, especially if that color is also incorporated somehow in the theme of the event. However, many of the most successful promoters will resist this urge, and instead pick out colors for their wristbands that are a good reflection of the event itself.

Another option is to look at the event’s sponsors, and to use the colors in their logos as a frame of reference when deciding on wristband colors. If you’re still stumped, and want the wristband colors to have some sort of coherence with the event, do a little digging on the Internet. See what colors seem to appear the most in the information and photos you do find, and go from there.
