The Wedding Color for Your Wedding
Trying to decide on the colors for your wedding color? This guide will help you create a day filled with color.
Long gone are the days when color was used as a wedding accent. One of today’s hottest trends is big, bold, and beautiful color. We see wedding color being used on wedding invitations, on the wedding cake, and color being used to create lovely wedding gowns, and for vintage wedding inspiration. Color is being used in every aspect of the wedding. With so much color being used, how do you choose a palette that will work for your special day? Our guide will take you step by step through the colorful wedding rainbow.
Location, Location, Location
They always say that location is everything and when it comes to picking your wedding color this is certainly true. Wedding receptions are held in many different places, and it is important to take note of the color of the walls, floors, and permanent decorations. If wall colors are yellow and carpets are brown, it is important to choose colors that work with those colors and not against them. For example, you are not going to pick yellow for a wedding gown color.
Your dream wedding colors
From the time you were a little girl, you have dreamed of your wedding day. You picked the color of the bridesmaid dresses as well as the color of the flowers. The question is how to take those dream colors and make them work. Take time to look at fabric swatches. Maybe that shade of green that you had in your head for the bridesmaid dresses will not work as well as a light or darker shade. The Pantone color reference guide will become your new best friend. The ink for wedding invitations can be picked from this guide as well as wedding cake colors.
Just how are you going to use color?
Brides are using color to set the mood at wedding receptions. Planning a vintage wedding? Look to color for a vintage wedding inspiration. The answers to these questions play an important part in choosing your wedding day colors. If you are setting a romantic mood, for example, your palette will consist of soft colors.
Wedding dresses no longer need to be white. A wedding gown color can be any color. Colorful wedding gowns or wedding dresses can help create a certain wedding day mood.
