Selecting your wedding colors is a most important and special part of your wedding planning.
As each season comes, there are color trends that evolve as favorites for that particular time of the year and colors that seem to follow through whatever the season.Read more here!
Color themes are based on a number of factors including the couple’s preferences, of course, and also the time of year the wedding will take place, whether the wedding is formal or casual, and if it will be indoors or outdoors all play a part in the color choices you make.
When selecting your colors I think two are enough, but worked properly together you can do three very nicely.
The exception is the rainbow theme which is just a delight and lovely to see; it’s becoming much more popular lately.
With all those things in mind here are some ideas and suggestions that may help you as you choose your wedding colors:
Starting with your wedding invitations and the other stationery you’ll need, make sure your chosen colors are reflected in each item.
That is not to say you must have everything in just your colors or color, and you may want to use a complementary color along with them as too much isn’t a good thing either.
- Wedding Venue and Reception
Often the venue you choose will help dictate the colors you select as you don’t want to clash with painted walls or carpets and the like.
Your reception should be a great place to use your wedding colors for things such as name card holders, table runners and napkins.
If your location clashes with your colors an easy way to fix that is to get some inexpensive cloth and cover the walls, tables, and whatever else clashes. You can use part of you color palette or use one with goes with everything.
When planning your centerpieces you have great chances to really highlight your wedding color palette.
This can be in the form of candles, flowers, vases or containers, fruit, cloths, paint
and… well, use your imagination!
There are many places on the Internet where you can get ideas, as well as looking in bridal books and magazine for even more help.
A florist and bride working together for the just right flowers is most important. You need to feel the florist is working to make what you desire his priority.
You will want to work closely with your florist to get your flowers in season and in your color theme.
In season flowers will be less expensive so take time to see what’s available with the colors you wish to use to help keep within your flower budget.
- Wedding Cake
The all-important wedding cake is one of the focal points at your reception and your colors can be beautifully used on your cake by a good baker.
It is important that you ask the baker to see pictures of his work and for references before you book him to do the cake.
- Wedding Attire
Adding a bit of your color to your dress in the way of a sash at the waist or just a large bow with the ribbon floating down the back at your waist are lovely touches.
The bridesmaids would look great in the color or colors you choose carrying flowers to match.
As for the groomsmen their vests and/or ties and socks will fit right in when they wear the theme colors also.
