Choose Your Wedding Colors in 4 Simple Steps

Decorating with color can make a celebration come to life. This is especially true when it comes to weddings.

Picking wedding colors is a process that needs close attention. Add a touch of charm to a black and white affair, and infuse your event with liveliness.

For those who want their weddings to be full of colorful joy and personality, consider following these four simple steps.

1.    Identify your Favorite Color

Do you have a favorite color? What about colors? These appealing shades may symbolize emotions (i.e. yellow = happy). Or, perhaps it is a shade that looks good with your skin tone and hair color. If you have trouble pinpointing the hues you love, take a look around. What colors do you decorate with? What does your cell phone case look like? What colors are repeated throughout your wardrobe? Your favorite colors are all around you. Take notice.

2.    Look at the Location

Wedding venues either have lots of character or are blank canvases. Nevertheless, it is important to recognize color pallets in the reception hall and ceremony spaces. Do you notice an established color pattern that you want to repeat? Is there a color that may clash with the theme you have in mind? Depending on the look of the venue or venues, this may have a strong influence on your color choice.

3.    Consider the Date

Depending on the time of year your wedding takes place, you may have to consider seasonal colors. For instance, in fall, outdoor colors tend to be vibrant shades of red, orange and gold. Therefore, it may be wise to compliment these colors when planning your wedding. It will add charm to the occasion and fit the overall mood that nature sets.

4.    Choose the Best Flowers

Once you acknowledge seasonal colors, it may be a good time to shop for flowers. Look for blooms that are relevant with the season. This adds to the ambiance and can save you money, as it is costly to import flowers that are not in season.

Choosing a theme for your wedding is more involved than declaring your favorite color. Like all aspects of wedding planning, there is a lot to consider. By taking your location, date, flowers, and your favorite colors into account, arriving at your final decision should be easy. Ultimately, choose colors that compliment you and will delight your guests.
