The wedding date is set. You made deposits and have in contract your most important vendors like locations, photographers, entertainment and the like. What is the next most important task that will emphasize the mood and style of the wedding? Selecting your wedding colors of course.
Selecting Your Wedding Colors
What choices are affected by the colors of the wedding?
Flowers must match the wedding colors
Bridal party attire – bridesmaids dresses and groomsmen tuxedos
The wedding cake cannot clash on colors
Wedding ceremony and reception decorations
What does your color speak? Yellow invokes happiness and excitement. Red oozes romance and excitement. Blue shows calmness and peacefulness. Different colors create different experiences. What does your wedding colors say about you and your event? Maybe you want to be less adventurous and safe by staying with shades of white and pink? The wedding colors selected tells everyone about your personality. If you want to choose a safer color, we would recommend selecting a bolder accent color to liven things up!
Not sure what color you want? We recommend going to your local home improvement store and review all the paint sample cards. Take some home and tape them onto the wall. Is it what you expected in daylight and also at night? What hew would you select? Still unsure, purchase some paint samples and paint a white board at home.
Don’t Be Predictable
It is best not to select colors of the seasons that match the seasons. December – Don’t select red and white. October – Don’t select brown and Orange. March – Don’t select white and green. You get our point. You want the event to remembered for the event itself, not the holiday. In spring, select a deep color other than a pastel. In winter, if you have white as a main color, be sure to select a rich accent color that are metallics like copper or bronze.
What Specific Hue Fits Your Style
One of the most popular wedding colors is pink. When first thinking of the word pink, do you think of hot pink or a soft pink? Let us help in the decision making of hues of any color with our example of pink. One of the more popular hues of pink right now is CORAL. What is shade is coral? It is amazing that one color can bring in glimmers of red, orange and pink. Coral eludes happy, excitement, romantic and whimsical. What colors are favorable accents to coral? Think minty greens and 24k gold. Matching flowers include stargazer lilies, pink roses and white coronations.
Another popular wedding color is blue. No, we are not talking navy blue or sky blue. Blue can make the perfect accent color to many mainstay wedding colors like black and white. We suggest to pick a blue that can be worn as bridesmaids dresses (that they can wear after the wedding), and splashes in the invitations, decorations and wedding cake. We like hues of turquoise to be exact.
