One of the most powerful ways to showcase the theme of your wedding is by selecting a special color palette. There are so many colors to choose from that finding the best options for your wedding may be difficult at times. However, if you rely on the following tips, you will easily be able to choose colors that are beautiful and that fit your personality and wedding theme.

Time of Year

Some colors work better depending on the time of year that your wedding is taking place. For example, you may want to choose fall colors when the leaves are changing colors, but pastels may be better when the flowers are blooming. Traditionally, spring is the best time for pastels, summer weddings typically use bright colors, earth tones are used in the fall and jewel tones are saved for the winter.

Venue

Another factor that can be important is the venue that you have chosen. Some venues may have décor that will not work well with certain colors. It is best if you avoid matching the colors of the venue too much, but you do want to choose colors that work well with your surroundings. If you don’t, the colors could wind up competing with each other and causing a distraction for you and your guests.

Your Favorite

Is there a color that you love or that will look great on your friends? Keep this in mind when you are planning your wedding colors. You should try to choose a color that will be flattering to everyone and that will work well with their complexions. You should also keep in mind the color that you look best in because you will be surrounded by the color that you choose on your wedding day. Choosing a color that is unflattering to you will make a difference in the way that you look.

Popular Colors

There are many different color options and you can find many options on popular sites like Pinterest and other wedding sites. Getting some ideas that others have used in the past can be helpful when you are planning your own wedding. This will help you to know which colors work well together and allow you to see them put into action in other weddings.

Conclusion

Choosing your wedding colors can be an exciting part of your wedding planning process. Be sure to take some extra time to decide which colors work best for you and will help you to create the theme that you are looking for with your wedding. Take into consideration the colors that work well together and complement each other nicely.

    I always thought this would have been one of the hardest things to do. There is quite a bit of pressure, since most of the day is frozen via photos, that you want to look your best and coordinated. Good tips here!
