Selecting Your Wedding Colors

Color can bring out a range of emotions, especially on a wedding day!  A big decision to make in the initial stages of wedding planning will be the color palate (ie: selecting your wedding colors).  Here are some tips to creating the perfect palate to fit your wedding as well as your personality!

Step One: Start With What You Love

What colors are you naturally drawn to?  Cool colors such as; green, blue, and purple?  Or maybe warmer hues with colors ranging from red, orange, and yellow?  Start with a color that makes you happy.  Having your favorite color incorporated in your wedding will speak of your personality and will be a good starting point in choosing the rest of the colors for your wedding color palate.

Step Two: Take in Your Surroundings

Take in your surroundings as you plan your wedding color palate.  Will your wedding be in the Fall with orange’s and yellows?  Or will it be in summer with blue and green colors?

Step Three: Combine Your Favorite With Your Surroundings

The last step is to combine your favorite color with a complimentary color from your surroundings or the season!  If necessary, refer to a color wheel and find colors that create harmony by complimenting each other on the wheel.  This will ensure that the colors blend well and create an atheistically pleasing wedding color palate.  After your two main wedding colors are chosen, feel to add more depth to the palate by adding accent colors (a few more colors that compliant your two wedding shades).
