Your color scheme for the wedding has the power to set the vibe – so choose wisely. Focusing on the color theme early on is important to ensure that everything else obtained for the wedding is well coordinated and suited to the wedding as a whole. The colors are completely up to you but you will need to take into account where you're getting married, and the formality or informality of your ceremony and reception.
The complexity or simplicity of color schemes are another part of your decision and these will depend on your personal preferences, budget, and patience! Here are the top determining factors to selecting your hues.
- Helpful? Use your favorite shade. You’ve been in love with pale lavender since the first grade, so this is a good place to begin – with what you love. You can tastefully incorporate any color into your wedding decorations by selecting the right hue, and combining it with the right accents.
- Which colors are you drawn to most? Is there one particular color or several? If there are several colors, are they compatible?
- Check your wardrobe. Leaving aside the standard office black, what are the other colors that emerge the most? These colors are a good indicator of your general color preferences.
- Make a color inspiration or mood board. Get a piece of thick card and place images you like from magazines on the board, images that highlight the colors you're keen on. You can also use color paint charts to help you match the hues and to get subtle shade variations
