6 Tips for Choosing Your Perfect Wedding Colors

A major decision that you will make while planning your wedding is the color scheme. This color will be featured in many different areas throughout the event, so you want to make sure that you pick one that both of you love. The flowers, the table decor, the bridesmaid dresses... there are a multitude of places to highlight a special color. 

With the rainbow of color combinations possible, deciding on one could seem like an overwhelming task. Here are a few tips from Angelus Bridal & Formals to make it easier for you.

Turn to your favorites. 

Nearly everyone has a favorite color. If you and your future spouse have the same favorite color, then this could be a very simple decision. If you need to branch out beyond your main favorite color, think about ones that inspire you or make you feel a certain way. 

Use color to set a mood.

Colors can evoke different feelings. This is a great way to set the mood for the type of wedding you want to have. Soft pastels bring on a dreamy, romantic tone, while bright, vibrant colors may feel more like a party. If your wedding will bring the outdoors inside, then earthy, natural colors will work well.  

Consider seasonal hues.

If flowers will be a large part of your wedding decor, lean toward using colors inspired by the flowers that are in season when you are getting married. Look at other seasonal themes for inspiration too. Fall weddings could feature the colors of pumpkins and changing leaves, or a Christmas wedding might be done in reds and greens or silver & gold. 

Take cues from the venue. 

The venue that you book for your ceremony and reception should have some influence on the colors that you choose. You don't want to clash with the decor that is already set in the room. If the place has a very strong color theme of its own, look for colors that work well with them. 

Be inspired by other weddings. 

Current wedding trends are wonderful for inspiring ideas. Browse through other weddings online and in magazines. Notice which ones you gravitate towards. If all of your favorites have the same general color scheme, then that may be the color you should go with.

Turn to the color wheel.

Once you've decided on your main color, pull out that color wheel that you learned all about in elementary school. This is a great way to see which accent colors work well together. Play with a few combinations before setting your heart on only one.
