How to Choose the Best Wedding Colors

A lot of people do not realize that a wedding’s color scheme is a very important decision that you need to make early, even before you look at wedding rental packages. If you are undecided on the color theme of your wedding, you might need some help with the considerations you need to make before making up your mind.

This is a day to remember and you want to make sure that everything goes as planned. You should read until the end so you can choose the right color/s.

Your Skin Tone

Specific colors are better on certain skin tones, so choose one that compliments your complexion. On your big day, you need to look radiant instead of washed out. You must not go with colors that give off unpleasant undertones. There are really colors that make you sparkle when you wear them because you look vibrant and refreshed. At the same time, there are colors that totally drain the color from your face. Keep in mind that your bridesmaids are going to wear the color themes you chose. So, even if you are not going to wear them, the colors should be chosen based on your complexion.

The Venue

Visualize the venue and surroundings. Is the location an open concept with white walls, or an ornate ballroom featuring glamorous accents and patterned wallpapers? Your venue’s details should help you decide on the color palette. If it is a blank venue like a tented reception, outdoor area, barn, and other versatile places makes it is easier to choose wedding colors from scratch because you will not clash with any colors. For other kinds of venues that are decorated already, like country clubs, hotels, museums, and restaurants, check what colors are in the space, and base the color palette on those.

Your Priorities

While the venue is normally the biggest choice to make in wedding planning, sometimes you need to consider details that could come before choosing your colors. If you have always wanted to have orchids or sunflowers at your wedding, then you can use those as starting points for choosing your color scheme. You do not want to go with a scheme that looks out of place instead of standing out as it should.

The Season

Think of the season’s natural landscape on your wedding day, and you can use that as inspiration for wedding colors. The best colors during springtime are pastels mixed with neutrals, without making it too dark. If the wedding is during the fall, you want to consider warm oranges, pomegranates, and purples in your wedding. Beautiful winter colors are deep reds, emerald greens, and even cool blues. Think of winter with beautiful and glistening snow – silver or wintery white is an option too. If your wedding is in the summer, warm gold is beautiful together with bright colors like yellows, pinks, and bright blue shades.

Style of Your Wedding

Depending on what your attire is, you might have to wear any of the colors you chose on your special day, and it should match your wedding style. For instance, you will not mix fuchsia and bright blue if the theme is inspired by The Great Gatsby.
