Selecting your wedding colors may sound like a simple enough task. But, for many brides, it is one of the toughest decisions to make, since there are so many choices and options to customize. Narrowing down the field can be a truly daunting task, especially if you also want a fusion of several different colors or palettes.
Many brides initially pick their favorite color and think they have it wrapped up. But then, as they leaf through all the bridal magazines and online catalogs dreaming of their perfect day, another color palette catches their eye and then they’re back to square one.
Here are some tips to help you more easily decide on which colors to pick for your wedding:
1. Figure out what type of statement you want to make. Are you a trendsetter or a traditionalist? What type of ceremony and reception are you having? Is it casual or formal? The colors you select should complement your personal style and should be in line with the type of affair that you’re throwing. For example, if you’re traditional and will have a conservative ceremony and reception, you may not want to choose hot pink and orange as your color palette, since it will not be in sync with the motif of your wedding.
2. Don’t be afraid to break the mold and dare to be different. Although many traditions from the past are still incorporated into the modern wedding, there are so many choices now and so many ways for you to break out and make a bold statement.
Don’t be afraid to team up colors that you love that are bold and sassy or, alternatively, refined and unusual in combination with each other. Your wedding day is your day to shine. Don’t be afraid to pick colors that will make you feel great.
3. Don’t get married to a color idea before figuring out whether you’ll actually be able to find and purchase items that will fit your color palette. You may love the combination of eggplant purple and chartreuse green but you may not be able to readily find wedding decorations and accessories that match or, if you do, the cost of acquiring those items may be significantly higher than what you can reasonably afford. Do your research first to get a general idea of what’s readily available on the market to avoid major frustration in scouring the planet to find a chartreuse accented ring pillow and guest book.
4. If you’re going to have floral centerpieces and other floral accents, be sure to pick colors that a florist will be able to work with and will be generally within your budget. As the example above, most flowers don’t naturally come in shades of eggplant purple or chartreuse and while many flowers can be dyed to match a palette, there’s often a significant price tag associated with that.
5. Remember the photos! How many brides from the ’70s do you think regret their choice of powder blue or coral pink every time they look at their wedding album? One of the risks of going with all trendy colors or combinations instead of sticking with a more classically conservative look and feel is that you may regret it down the road. Your photos will be the lasting memories for your wedding and the colors that you love now or the hot colors in the magazines may not be the colors that you’ll remember fondly 20 years from now.more information here!
