It’s early in the planning process and one of the first things you’re doing is looking for the PERFECT wedding color ideas. The very colors that will set the mood for your whole day!
If you’re anything like I was, you have a favorite color or combination of colors. But, you’re not quite ready to commit.
You may want to see what other colors catch your fancy. Or, you may simply be looking for a super awesome scheme which includes your favorite(s).
In this quest for the perfect wedding color scheme you’ll end up with tons of photos tucked into your planning books, folders, or inspiration boards. I know I did!
Even with a fashion degree under my belt, it was a hard decision. One I didn’t make lightly… and probably one you won’t either.
Before you settle on a final wedding color scheme, there are a few simple color-choosing tips I learned in school and after working in the industry for many years. Simple tips that that can actually help you save money on everything from your invites to your decor.
Having a single reference for inspiration simplifies a lot of the other decisions that involve color (like um…everything!)
- Your colors need to look great in your venue
- Your favorite flowers (or the most affordable flowers) need to fit with your color scheme
- Will your maids (and groom) look good in one of the colors?
- Are invites, favor packaging, and table clothes available in one of the colors in your pallette (and at a reasonable price).
- Motif and texture can play an important role in your wedding color scheme
