Picking your wedding palette isn’t exactly as easy as choosing your two favorite colors and making them the foundation for every wedding detail. Here are some tips to make this process easier.
1. Get Inspired by Your Setting
First things first: location. Have a color palette in mind as you start your venue search. Think about what colors you’d like to use, and whether you’d want to prioritize finding the perfect venue or having your perfect color palette. Venues like converted warehouses, lofts and tents are all blank slates, meaning you can really add as much or as little as you want to carry out your vision for color and style. Chic Flowers San Diego Company can add floral colorful accents to your venue.
2. Keep Your Priorities In Mind
If you’ve always dreamed of having your wedding overflowing with purple dendrobium orchids, then you should use that as a starting point for your palette, instead of trying to figure out a way to work it in later.
3. Think Seasonally
Just like your wardrobe, your wedding color scheme can be inspired by the time of year you’re saying “I do.” Think about the shade you want to use to bring out the season in your color palette. Rosy pink is perfect for spring, while a brighter coral is a summer staple. For fall, a rich fuchsia pairs well with other jewel tones, and blush and silver are a pretty wintry combo.
4. Set the Mood
Your wedding colors can also help create a vibe for your wedding day. If you’re going for a lot of drama, then a dark or jewel tone palette, like ruby red and black or emerald and gold, is a better choice than, say, light pastels. Think about the style and atmosphere you want to have, whether it’s relaxed or nostalgic, and what colors put you in that mind-set.
