7 STRATEGIES FOR CHOOSING YOUR WEDDING COLOR PALETTE

Choosing the perfect color palette for your wedding day may seem easy at first, but it's often more complex than just putting together your favorite colors because they don't always work together as you'd hoped. Colors are very important and the combination you choose can show your personal style and set the tone and mood for the day. These colors will be present in your wedding stationary, decorative accessories and photographs. If you're confused about where to start, here are some ideas to help you define the ideal color palette for the big day.

1. INSPIRATION FROM THE SEASONS

The season of the year in which your wedding is taking place can be an excellent starting point for deciding on colors. Start by imagining the colors that make you think of that time of year. For example, spring goes well with pastel or bolder colors, while autumn is a reflection of earthy colors, dark red and orange. Summer is a time that calls for bright, vivid colors such as yellow, pink, silver and white.

2. THE WEDDING VENUE

If you've already decided on the wedding venue, it can be matched with specific colors that complement it and make it stand out to the eye. Perhaps the venue has a stunning carpet and makes red accessories a more obvious and intelligent choice. If the venue is a castle or palace you can go with gold, alluding to gold and wealth.

5. FOCUS ON THE CHOSEN THEME

Sometimes the wedding theme is chosen before choosing a color scheme. For example, if you opt for a vintage style and use it as the basis for your wedding theme, you can search for photos with vintage themes and see what colors stand out to you. Are they pastel colors or earthy or golden? The ones you identify with will probably be a good starting point for the basis of your own color scheme.

6. SET THE MOOD FOR THE PARTY

Your wedding color scheme can help set the mood for your wedding party. This means you can choose colors based on how you want your guests to feel, relaxed and casual or passionate and sophisticated. For example, dark colors like navy blue or black mixed with gold have a different effect than pink and rose gold. The impact depends on how you combine your colors and how you decide to use them.

7. FIND YOUR FAVORITES

If you still don't have any ideas to encourage you, look around your home. Open your closet and look for the colors that pop out most often. You can also look at rooms in your home to complement the color you've selected in your closet. For example, imagine that you identify navy blue as your predominant color, you can identify white flowers scattered around the house and you can be inspired by gold details on your mantelpiece. The similarities and combinations you discover in your day-to-day life can lead to colors that characterize you. Use them as a starting point when making your decision.
