Not all wedding colours boil down to the bridesmaids dress choice, choosing the overall look and colour palette for your big day is more than that! Today we’re here to help with five easy ways to help your choose the colours that are perfect for you and your day.
1. Look to your venue for inspiration
Does your venue choice have a distinctive colour scheme that you would like to work along with on your big day? Many venues have muted one shade colour schemes that will really benefit to you adding an accent colour to. Think of the mood you want to create on the day, fun and modern or formal with an elegant appeal. Neutrals teamed with shades of green will work well for a natural, organic day, whilst pastel shades will forever be best friends with the pretty loving brides.
2. Consider the season
Find inspiration with the seasons and choose a scheme that suits the time of year you’re getting married. Of course you don’t have to go for classic red and gold for a Christmas wedding but make sure your colours are in some small way associated with the season. In general terms, light and bright shades work best for spring and summer, whilst dramatic dark shades will win for autumn and winter.
3. Always listen to the experts
You may have a general idea of colour choice thanks to your tastes and by going with what you love. We say go for it but always ask the experts for their input in refining your choices. Your florist, for example will know exactly what accent colours to add, or remove from your choices to make the floral scheme coherent and pretty. Florists, wedding stylists and venue dressers are a wealth of wedding knowledge and will build layers of colours to your day, making your initial colour choice really pop.
4. Colour Combos
Florists, wedding stylists and venue dressers are a wealth of wedding knowledge and will build layers of colours to your day, making your initial colour choice really pop. If you search a simple colour combination in Pinterest you will be thrown up hundred of varying colour combinations and ideas of what shade works with what. You might like to go with a trusted combo, or maybe you’re bane enough to throw caution to the wind and make up your own rules!
5. Stay simple
Or final piece of advice is to make sure you love every decision made and to keep it simple. Always stick to two or three colours for a coherent look, don’t be striving for a rainbow look, you’ll most likely regret that choice!
We hope you’re having a great St.Patrick’s Day!
