Recently working with one of my Brides, she was having challenges finalizing her wedding colors. I thought about a few ways to help her narrow down her color theme. Just in case you are looking for some additional guidance, here are some ideas to help you too!
Your Favorites: Simply think about your favorite color. What colors do you love the most? It’s okay if you have more than one. If you do have more than one, create two color themes you can select from.
The Venue: Think about the your Reception Venue or the Venue you would like to book. How will your colors work with design of the venue? Test your color scheme. Schedule a site visit. Bring table linens in your colors and place it over the table to begin to envision the space and determine the best color scheme.
Color Matching: Purchase individual swatch of your colors and see how the colors compliment each other. You may even want to look at various Bridesmaids Dresses to have a larger view of the color and even place the second color next to it to see how well the colors look together.
Google Search: Take the time to do a Google Search for photographs of your colors. This will help you get an additional view of how the colors work with different venues.
Tis the Season: What time of the year will you have your wedding? Some Brides will decide to go with colors that match the current season. Remember it’s your day, so don’t be afraid to go with your favorite colors!
