Finding the Right Hue
You have chosen your ladies, but have no clue what color to put them in? Have no fear, use these simple steps to decide your perfect wedding color palette for your big day!
The most important thing to think about is, when is your wedding? Certain seasons suggest certain colors. If you are conscious of what colors to wear in those seasons, you know what colors you might need to steer clear of. For example, you don’t wear dark colors in the spring, and light colors in the fall, it just doesn’t work. Wearing bright colors in the spring and summer is typically the norm.
What are your favorite colors? Are you going for a more modern or vintage theme for your wedding? If your favorites happen to be magenta and navy, they are a perfect combination, and work very well. If your colors don’t work well together, consider going to a paint store and picking up swatches to decide on some colors together, or visit a fabric store and scout some fabric samples!
Think of the season, and what flowers are going to be easily accessible. For example, if you know that gerbera daisies are in season, and they happen to be your favorite flower, use them! If you love lilies of the valley, make sure that you have them, and incorporate those colors into your wedding color palette.
Finding inspiration can be easy, think of your favorite china pattern, or even a printed dress might be just the ticket to finding a wedding color palette. Consider having your maid of honor in a printed dress while your other ladies in waiting are in a solid complimenting color. This creates contrast, and shows that your maid of honor is special! Also, create the same complimenting colors within your bouquets and flowersaround the wedding. This will make your wedding fragrant, and beautiful!
