Mistakes to avoid when choosing your wedding style and colors

Every couple dreams of a wedding day that is unique and creative. Colors play a huge role in enhancing the overall mood and effect of this special day. Unfortunately, choosing the right colors for your wedding isn’t as easy as it seems. Although you may have certain favorite colors, you cannot simply put them together and plan your wedding around them.

Wedding color pitfalls are fairly common, and they ruin the wedding ambiance. Fortunately, being aware of the likely mistakes will help you avoid them. Here is our guide to the common mistakes couples make when choosing wedding colors. Use it to steer clear of a visual overdose of colors and mix and match combinations that do not gel together.

Ignoring the colors in your venue

Many couples forget to account for the effect of the colors that are part of the venue they choose. This unavoidable part of the décor has to be considered and you should work it into the wedding color palette. Since it is unlikely that you can alter any of the existent colors at your venue it is wise to pick colors that do not clash with them for the best effect.

If you already have made your decision about the colors that will be in your wedding, choose a venue with colors that work with your choice. There are many venues without dominating colors in the décor. Pick such venues and you will not have to worry about a likely clash of colors. Otherwise, find your wedding venue first. Then pick your wedding colors to go with it. However, this means that you will have to be open to options and flexible with your choices.

Choosing several distinct colors

When you are a lover of colors, it can be difficult to narrow down your choices to just few. Nevertheless, don’t make the mistake of working with many colors that are entirely different. Multiple bold and dominating shades create clutter and look messy. Also, the individual details will be lost in the noise.

This article on the Brides website suggests that where colors are concerned, fewer is better. If your theme requires you to work with multiple colors, say like a rainbow or circus theme, try to work with smaller doses of color. Then use a neutral base to tie the effect together. This article also suggests limiting your colors to just two for elegance and sophistication. Make sure that these colors complement or contrast, for it to be pleasant and not overbearing. As a general rule of thumb, do not add more than four colors to your palette, or it can become overwhelming.

Going with the trend

Pantone picks a color or two every year, and many brides decide to incorporate this into their weddings. From burgundy to rose quartz and greenery, the choices are often unusual and unexpected. This may seem to be unique and interesting at the time. One advantage of using these colors is that it is easy to find your wedding decorations. Many companies bring out décor items in this color following the announcement every year. However, not all such trends are timeless or classic.

When you choose an unexpected combination for your wedding, it is likely to look dated over time. Although it may look interesting at the moment, remember that your wedding memories should stand the test of time. When your album shows what is hot now, it doesn’t have to be the same years later. Hence it is better to pick colors that actually appeal to you than go with fads that will disappear soon. Classic color combinations and bold, saturated colors will always speak to you. Ten years from now, when you open your wedding album, the colors that you eternally love will seem more attractive than shades whose names you can barely remember at the time.

Keeping your palette too simple

This is the very opposite of working with too many colors. By limiting your wedding day palette to just one or two shades, your wedding can become monotonous and boring. Instead, try to incorporate various hues of the same color into the scheme. Also work with neutrals that don’t overpower with their presence.

If your focal colors are really vivid, balance the effect with soft, neutral shades that will add depth to the main colors. If you have choose mute and subtle colors to be highlighted, the right dose of complementing colors will personality and make the décor more interesting. Take a look at the color wheel to find colors that contrast or complement well with the main colors you choose. Use this to plan your color combinations wisely. Here is a comprehensive guide to working with colors, on the Smashing Magazine website. Take a look and we are sure you will find plenty of inspiration and ideas. 

Choosing common and predictable combinations

Certain color combinations are safe, however they are also boring. We have seen enough weddings where black has been paired with white and gold, or red with yellow and white. These predictable combinations no longer excite, and have little scope for creativity. So, while you should find inspiration in traditional combinations, it is a good idea to tweak the colors and with your own creative twist.

One of the ways to do this is to take such a palette, and switch out one of the colors. Choose a hue from the same color family, but one that is distinct. Another option is to break the pattern with luxurious doses of white or black, which also creates a sophisticated effect. You can also use metallic colors for an interesting effect. The right doses of gold, silver or copper can instantly glam up a color palette, and add to its elegance.

Trying too hard to get perfect matches

While carefully matched colorful pieces will look stunning in your wedding décor, it should flow naturally and look effortless. Trying too hard to get the colors right and the combinations perfect will ruin the entire effect. This is especially true where floral elements and bridesmaids dresses are concerned. It may not be possible to find flowers in the exact color you want for your wedding palette. You may end up having to spend extra for off-season varieties if your chosen color is rare, like shades of blue.

Similarly, picking bridesmaids dresses in colors that match your palette aren’t a good idea if it won’t look good on your bridesmaids. This will not only make them unhappy, it will also be an eyesore. The trick is to think creatively, and make these details work with a little flexibility. Choose décor items like ribbons, balloons or candles to replace flowers, but obtain the intended effect. Similarly, dress up your bridesmaids with accessories like sashes, hair clips or even shoes to add the desired pop of color without ruining the effect.

Choosing colors without actual visual samples

Whether it is your wedding flowers, table linen, invitation suite or bridesmaids dresses, always see the color to determine it is alright. Images of the color on a computer screen or in a magazine can be entirely different from how it looks in person. This is because the color that you see on a screen depends on the light in which the image was taken and any edits that went into creating the image.

If you follow this route, it can completely alter the final effect you obtain at the end. For instance, peach or coral may turn out to be pink or orange when viewed directly. Since you will have to match your colors across various aspects in your wedding, it is best to view swatches before making your decision. This way, you can see for yourself if the color is exactly as you intended, and make the right choice. Also, names can be misleading. So, make sure you have a sample of the color to show others, so there is no confusion about what you actually mean.

Not considering the effect of texture

The same color can have different effects depending on the texture of elements used. Items with heavy texture can have saturated effects, while wispy textures reduce the drama associated with a color. Keep this factor in mind when choosing wedding colors.

Patterns, prints and embellishments can alter the overall effect of a color. When planning your décor and style, consider how the different textures in the arrangement come together. The right distribution of textures will enhance the depth and drama of designs in your décor. Pay close attention to linens, centerpieces, carpets and wall colors. These are a significant part of the visual imagery and play an important role in determining the overall effect.

Using colors that are garish

Some colors are too difficult to look at, and may not be ideal for your wedding décor. These are colors that aren’t usually seen in nature. Neons and fluorescent colors are distractive and not easy on the eye. Avoid such colors or use them in moderation, so your décor isn’t garish.

Neons can be overwhelming, unless chosen carefully. However, it is possible to get the effect right if you use them sparingly. If you choose such colors in your wedding imagery, balance it out with neutrals and complementary colors that make it less overwhelming. Limit their use and consider the effect of the lighting in the space to get it right. Neons and fluorescent colors will look better in the evening, than during day. So, make such color choices keeping these factors in mind.

Take a look at this article on the Glamour website for some unique and impressive ideas. 

Not considering the effect of the climate and actual ambiance at the time

There is no denying the fact that different colors look best at certain times of the year than others. Bright tropical colors, for instance, look best in summer and spring while bold, dramatic colors look stunning in autumn and winter. Matching the colors to the actual environmental condition at the time can bring out the best effects in them. Use this factor when choosing your wedding palette.

Set the right tone for your wedding by choosing colors that work with the atmosphere you aim to have at your wedding. This doesn’t mean you shouldn’t use colors like yellow and orange at a winter wedding scene. Instead, you may have to lighten or intensify the saturation of the colors you choose to suit the scenery. Pick accent colors that will complement your primary choices, as this can make a significant difference to the mood that is created.

Choosing wedding colors isn’t easy. The options are endless, and it is difficult to narrow down choices to few when there are so many attractive options. With each passing day, the ideas keep growing and this only makes the task more difficult.

There are many sources of inspiration too. If you just take a look at the internet or flip through a bridal magazine, you will see a stunning variety of ideas. So, how do you make the right choice? As with everything in your wedding, your wedding color palette should reflect your personality, preferences and style in general. Look around you, and to your home and wardrobe as the starting point. This will help you identify colors, textures and prints you already love. Use it to narrow down your choices and just go with what your instinct points you to. The most important thing is not to overthink it, and be happy with what you settle on.

Our top four favorite wedding themes

One of the best things about having a wedding theme is that it gives you the outline to plan your wedding, from the flowers and décor, to stationery and party favors. This makes it easy to bring together the various details in a cohesive manner and make everything part of one big picture.

There are hundreds of wedding themes to explore out there, and even a subtle difference in the colors and elements can help you have a wedding that is uniquely yours. Here, we have rounded up four of our favorite wedding themes, and added ideas that can make these themes unique. Get ready to be inspired.

1.Nautical celebration

Whether held indoors or outdoors, a nautical theme wedding is refreshing and just like the open ocean, is full of energy. This theme can be adapted for both formal and informal weddings, by simply varying the style details.

Venue: The true nautical celebration should be held in a sandy beach, beside waves of frolicking oceans that are a sailor’s actual home. Or better, have it on a cruise boat, if your budget allows it. Alternately, have a ceremony on the beach, and hold the reception indoors. You can consider an indoor venue dressed up with nautical colors and interesting décor elements like a life-size boat or the captain’s deck, for your wedding. To keep the indoor effect real, it is a good idea to employ dim lighting and recreate the beach feel.

Best colors: Colors of the ocean—light blue, sea blue and navy work well. Navy and white stripes are another signature combination associated with this theme. You can also choose tropical colors like orange and yellow as accents that add a pop of color to this palette.

Food: A seafood based food platter is a must-have for this theme. A navy and white striped cake or one that resembles a boat or ship would also be great. Desserts can be fashioned after traditional seafaring elements like starfish, clams, anchors, mussels and oysters.

Interesting dress and décor elements: Ropes may be used throughout the décor for that authentic nautical vibe. Wooden décor with anchor and helm motifs can be used to customize stationery. Also add a personalized anchor photo backdrop in the center.  The wedding party is expected to dress in style, with formal and luxurious fabric like satin for style and elegance. The length of the dresses may be varied between calf and full-length gowns. You can also consider short and fun dresses for a casual beach style ambiance.

Party favors: Perfect party favors are beach theme trinket boxes , miniature starfish candles and metal boats . You can find more beach and nautical theme favor ideas by visiting this page to our cool party favors.

Take it up a notch with: the wedding reception on a cruise ship. A pretty buffet table which resembles a sandy beach and contains oysters and clam shaped cookies with little pearls within. A striped fabric for the ring pillow and bridesmaids in blue and white striped dresses can complete the effect with stunning beauty.

2.Rustic chic

The rustic chic style blends together age-old elements that conjure up nostalgia with modern day style, and is always popular. It is the perfect harmony of what is comfortable with what is glitzy and good-looking.

Venue: Barns, outdoor park venues, ranches and even your own backyard could be converted into a rustic chic wedding venue. Since this is all about working with the details and adding signature elements, it is possible to get the ambiance right in almost any venue with plenty of natural elements in it

rustic wedding

Best colors: Antique or parchment white, burlap, grays and wood are the main highlights for this scheme. Combine this with bright or dark accent colors, but in moderation, for the chic effect to be complete. Colors like peach, navy, cherry red, purples and metals like silver and gold can achieve the desired feel easily.

Food : A naked cake decorated with fresh, ripe berries, flowers or other original ingredients is a must. Wholesome, hearty meals with plenty of organic ingredients, interspersed with attractive and neatly finished gourmet fare can make a rustic chic wedding menu complete. The arrangement is just as important as the taste. Consider using straw, burlap, wood and plenty of glass for the rustic vibe. Also focus on pops of color with fresh flowers, interesting motifs with fabric and a little glitz in the right doses for the chic aspect.

Interesting dress and décor elements: Wine barrels that double up as serving stations, plenty of distressed and reclaimed wooden settings, twigs, wild flowers, candles and soft glowing lights can make the scene breathtakingly beautiful. Burlap, jute and other natural hardy fabric, as well as generous doses of chalkboard elements look great and can seamlessly integrate the less rustic-looking elements into the theme. We can also see the bride and bridesmaids sporting plenty of flowers freshly plucked from the garden, as well as these being used in the centerpieces and décor at the venue. Lace wedding gowns and bridesmaids dresses are perfect for this wedding theme.

Party favors: Our antique key charm , candy favors packed into the beautiful lace burlap drawstring bag,  and single use cameras are few of the many options you can choose from our rustic chic favor collection here.

Take it up a notch with: Lace and burlap are a match made in heaven. Make sure that your wedding dress has plenty of vintage lace for a stylish, but elegant look. Add the chic vibe in with small but prominent elements that instantly add extra glamor to the setting. These could be crystal ware or silver candlesticks that will stand out, but look fantastic in the arrangement. Mason jars are a design accessory forever associated with this theme. Update this humble accessory by choosing various glass jars in different shapes, sizes and textures for an unusual and unexpected effect.

Classic celebrations

A wedding theme that will never go out of fashion, or look dated in any era, the classic wedding theme is an eternal favorite. Following the traditional setup in terms of venue, décor, dressing and style, the classic wedding focuses on traditions and formal practices that haven’t changed even remotely, over the years. This is the style that you can always find plenty of examples for, and everyone is familiar with. However, this doesn’t mean it is boring, as the traditions of these weddings have been passed down from one generation to the next, only because they are truly timeless.

Venue: Classic weddings are best held in banquet halls, hotels or historic venues. The venue should have a magnificent feel to it, either by itself, or because of the choice of accessories used to dress it up. Luxury and style are trademarks of these wedding styles, and this should set the tone for your celebration.

Best colors: There are no specific rules about the colors that can make a classic wedding work. Solid, bold colors mixed with plenty of neutrals are combinations that are usually suitable for classic wedding themes. The idea is to have an interesting palette, but one that isn’t too loud or cluttered. Mixing of metals like gold and silver can add more sophistication to the color palette.

Food: A classic style wedding has to have a plated meal,as a buffet is definitely off the cards. The number of courses may be three or five, depending on your budget. Signature dishes may form the menu, but traditional favorites are popular choices at classic weddings. These are also safer choices than gourmet dishes, which may not be appreciated by everyone. Although the classic tiered cake was a regular at this type of wedding, nowadays couples opt for smaller couture cakes instead. This doesn’t hamper the style though.

Interesting dress and décor elements: Large chandeliers, elaborate centerpieces with luscious blooms and lots of metallic pieces, like candle stands and silver ware are expected. The party lighting will be serious and ballroom style. The wedding party will stick to formal dresses, with the men in tuxes and women in full-length gowns. Bridesmaids may either wear gowns in the signature colors of the chosen color palette, or opt for neutral colored dresses. Hair and makeup will be in formal style, with accessories like silver and pearls preferred over colored gemstones and fabric accessories.

Party favors: The miniature beveled glass trinket box and novelty diamond key chain are some suggestions to consider. For more classic theme wedding favors, visit this page on Best for Bride.

Take it up a notch with: elaborate arrangements like lush carpets and huge flower balls for décor. Nevertheless, classic doesn’t always have to be big and bold. It is also classic when the details at the party are intricate and carved out with careful thought and consideration. Every detail is done with a touch of class, and this even extends to the flowers and menu presentation. Classic is all about traditions, so planning the ceremony and reception details to show case the cultural practices in the best light, can go a long way in capturing the essence of this theme.

Colorful Garden wedding

Venue: Another great venue for a romantic wedding, the garden wedding has and continues to be a big hit in spring and summer. More geared towards the casual style, the garden is a fun location that equally appeals to the young and old. With the natural landscape forming a brilliant backdrop, pretty accents can be added with colorful flowers to make this type of wedding really spectacular in every way.

garden venue

Best colors: Almost every color goes with green as the background. However, for maximum impact we suggest wonderful pops of vibrant colors like pink, orange, yellow and blue. These liven up the scene and make it fun and exciting. The other colors that look good in the garden scene are the all-time classic white and pastels.

Food: The garden venue is best suited for weddings in the spring and summer, and particularly best for those held in the afternoons or early evenings. Skip the traditional dinner for an exciting and hearty brunch buffet or afternoon tea. Not only is this more cost-effective, it also gives you plenty of time to party with your favorite guests, after the formal function is over. For desserts, consider fresh fruit assortments and cakes like the Bundt cake which is a pleasant deviation from the traditional tiered style.

Interesting dress and décor elements: The chosen décor should naturally blend in with the surroundings. Comfortable seating can be arranged with throws and cushions scattered on large garden mats. We also love to see rustic elements like candles in mason jars and flower garlands decorating the venue. Gardens have to have flowers, and this is one area where the couple should ideally splurge. Short chiffon and lace dresses are beautiful on both brides and bridesmaids, and are more practical than the long floor-length gowns. The men can opt for light shades like white and grey instead of black for their suits.

Party favors: The sweet bird house favor box and mini flower pots are apt themed gifts for your celebration. You can find more options at this link to our favors page.

Take it up a notch with: impressive decorations at the altar. Don’t worry about going overboard with the floral details, it will only enhance the beauty of your natural landscape. Flower crowns for the bride, or for her girls in waiting are a perfect accessory for this event. Share the joy with the guests as well, by arranging to have extras for them to wear as well.

10 common makeup mistakes to avoid on your wedding day

Your wedding day is the one occasion when all eyes will be on you, and you do not want to disappoint. It is easy to imagine yourself as a beautiful bride. However, making it a reality is not just as easy. Good looks don’t happen overnight. Skin care and grooming should be an ongoing task to ensure you are in top form on your wedding day.

Despite your skin and hair being in top shape on your wedding day, you may not look as good as you wanted to, if your makeup isn’t done well. In fact, your choice of makeup can make or break your overall look. Hence it is important to pay close attention to how you dress yourself up on your wedding day.

Here is a list of the most common wedding makeup mistakes that brides commonly make. Stay one step ahead of the game by preparing in advance, so these do not prevent you from looking great on the most important day of your life.

1.Not having a specific idea of how your makeup should be on the day

Rather than go with what you think will be good, or leave things to the discretion of your makeup artist, prepare yourself with a specific idea of how you should look on your wedding day. Nail this look at your makeup trial session.

Before you book your makeup artist, have a trial session where you can see exactly how you will look on your wedding day. Look for inspiration in  magazines and off the internet, and take these with you to your appointment, as references. This will give your makeup artist a framework to work with. By checking out how this will be during the trial, you can recognize whether it will work, or if it is better to make changes to your idea.

2.Not finding the perfect foundation color

For those of you brides who will be doing your wedding makeup yourself, your wedding day is not the time to open a brand new bottle of foundation. You should ideally have settled on the shade to wear, at least a few weeks in advance.

Wearing foundation that is darker than your skin tone will give you an artificial, painted look, while wearing one that is a shade or two lighter can make you look all dolled up. Neither will be right. Make sure you find the right shade, as this will be the best way to enhance your looks and cover up natural problem areas and have crystal clear skin on the day. If you can’t find your foundation easily, try to mix up foundation colors till you find the right shade. Just remember that your wedding day shouldn’t be the occasion to first try it out. You should have figured out the right proportions to mix, well in advance. Only then will you avoid making a mistake on the day.

3.Not using waterproof makeup, especially eye makeup

Even if you have to spend extra on waterproof makeup, it is worth every penny. Water resistant eye makeup is an absolute essential for your wedding day. Even if you manage to keep your tears at bay, your eye makeup can get ruined quickly and look far from fresh by the end of the day, if it isn’t waterproof. So, buy mascara, eye liner and eye shadow that can withstand your emotional outbursts on this very special day.

If your wedding is in the warmer months, it is a good idea to invest in good quality waterproof makeup not just for your eyes, but for every part of your face. This way, you do not have to worry about the makeup running when you sweat, and you can retain your freshly made up look all through the evening.

4.Overly blushing bride

Excess use of blush will ruin your wedding day pictures. You may want to stand out from the rest of the crowd, but don’t let it be at the cost of looking too pink. Apply blush only to the apples of your cheeks and blend, blend, blend till they look like they are part of your facial features. Also, it is best to go light with color. Overly pink shades can be an eyesore and look excessively pronounced in your wedding pictures. So, stick to shades that you have used before.

If you use bronzer, blend it into the blush, so it doesn’t stand out distinctly. Make sure that you already have tried it out and made sure that the shade works, and you aren’t experimenting with it on the day of the event.

5. Looking very unnatural

Your wedding day is the right occasion to dress up your best, but this doesn’t mean you should end up looking like someone else altogether. We believe that the best looking brides are those who look like prettier versions of themselves, through the right application of makeup. So, aim for this. Stick with colors that just accentuate your features and add more definition to your natural look. Don’t use unnatural tints, unless absolutely necessary.

Cat eyes and smoky makeup, emerald eye shadow and glitter on your cheek may be fine, but make sure you try it out before the day, to make sure that it looks good and that you can comfortably carry it off. Also remember that smoky eye makeup often doesn’t look too great in photographs. Your photos could end up looking odd with shadows around the eyes, so check the chances of this happening. Tans, browns, natural pinks, cream and taupe are shades that look good in almost every setting. So, focus on this palette, instead of reds, purples and oranges. If you must wear that bright red lipstick on your wedding day, balance it out by keeping the rest of your makeup simple. Too many colorful details can look loud, and you may end up looking overly dressed and unattractive.

6. Overdoing your eye makeup

We just mentioned how smoky eye make up may not be such a great idea for your wedding day. It can easily spread and doesn’t show up as well in photographs. Although the eyes are very important to enhancing your overall wedding day look, do it sensibly so it doesn’t look overly dramatic.

This article on the Huff Post suggests using black only in the mascara, for your eye makeup. Keep the rest of the colors soft, and it will look a lot better. We recommend cream makeup, since it lasts longer and is easier to apply. Powder is fine when applied, but it doesn’t stay as long. Another important factor is to consider the color of your eyes when deciding on your eye makeup. The colors you choose should subtly enhance the natural beauty of your eye color. If you will be using false eyelashes, do not add more than is required, as it can look a little crazy. When filling in your brows, do so with eye shadow that matches the color on your upper eyelid. Follow the natural curve of the brow for the best results.

7.Let the skin glow through

Many brides make the mistake of piling on too much makeup that they end up blocking the natural look of the skin. Use only as much makeup as is necessary, and go easy with the foundation, blush and base makeup. If you have naturally good skin, airbrushing is a good option. This allows your skin to shine through and nothing looks as good as healthy and naturally glowing skin.

Thick layers of makeup also tend to look cakey, and can make you look older in photos. It is essential to balance it all out, and stay with what feels comfortable and doesn’t look too much. Add concealer only where absolutely necessary, and use the foundation appropriately to cover up any flaws. Don’t create a mask over your natural skin. This will look lifeless. Trust your natural beauty to shine through, and use makeup only to enhance it where necessary. You will look lovely and dewy when you do this.

8.Overdoing the lips

When the rest of your makeup is complete, you may feel that your lips look washed out and pale, and you must color it well to make it blend in. Don’t do too much painting, or you will regret it. Just apply the necessary layer of lipstick, don’t be too generous with it. Exfoliate your lips before you apply lipstick, so it looks soft and the lipstick sticks for much longer.

If your lipstick is naturally glossy, or bright, it may be good if you skip the gloss. Too much shine can cause your lips to lose definition, will make it look flat and your lipstick may even spread. Lip stain is always better than lipstick, as it lasts longer. The other problem with lip gloss is that it will come in the way of your kiss and your groom will end up with a matching lip color, which we don’t think could possibly look good!

9.Getting the tan wrong

A healthy tan looks great on a bride, but overdoing it, or using fake tan lotions can ruin the chances of looking good. Some fake tans look good in person, but end up giving an orange look in pictures . When going for tan sessions, we suggest that you do it well in advance. This will save you from any disastrous problems closer to your wedding day.

One likely problem is your skin ending up with streaks from a previous tanning session. You can avoid this problem if you build up your tan over a series of session, instead of in a single intense session closer to the wedding day. This will also prevent you from going overboard with the tan.

10.Not setting the makeup with powder or allowing it time to set

The last step when you apply makeup, should be applying a loose layer of translucent powder over your makeup. Alternately, you can also use a makeup up setting spray. These are the right ways to make sure your makeup stays. If you skip this step, you will find that your makeup fades as time passes, and you will end up looking tired and with soggy makeup by the end of the day.

However, don’t use too much powder to set your lipstick, as this will cause it to fade faster. Instead layer your lipstick with lip stain and line it to keep your lips defined throughout the day. Long-lasting lipstick is a good choice. Also, aim to finish your makeup on schedule, as it takes time for it to settle. If not, you will be caught with it smearing with the smallest move, and repairing it will not be too easy.

That wraps up the list of the different makeup mistakes that can happen, and how you can either avoid them or fix them.

Your wedding day is one of the most special days in your life, and looking perfect is absolutely necessary to remember this day fondly. Although you may be tempted to do all your can to look as great as possible,
