One of the most fun elements of wedding planning is choosing your color scheme. Which is also one of the most essential decisions, as your wedding colors tie in to almost every detail of your wedding. From décor, floral, your wedding party attire and more – your color palette will guide you for many of your wedding planning decisions going forward.
Helpful Things to Consider:
- What colors make you happy and relaxed? Do you prefer muted tones, or vibrant and colorful vibes. Having an understanding of what colors help put you at ease can help guide you as you choose your wedding colors.
- Think about the time of year you’re getting married and where you’re getting married. The color palette you might choose for a winter wedding taking place in a ballroom may look very different than a summer wedding on a beach.
- Finally, what’s your wedding theme? Is it modern and minimal, enchanted garden or vintage – this can really help narrow down color choices.
