What to Think About When Choosing Your Wedding Colors

When choosing your wedding colors, there are a couple of questions that you should ask yourself. Questions like:

  • Where will your wedding be held? By the beach? In the countryside?
  • In what season will your wedding occur? Warm, rich fall or snowy winter?
  • What kind of mood do you want to set? Will the event be a dramatic affair or light and whimsical?

How to Choose a Wedding Color Palette

Once you have an idea of the look and feel for your wedding day, you can start to think about a color palette. Remember, your color palette will affect many different elements of your wedding, including your:

  • invitations
  • table setting
  • bridesmaids’ dresses
  • groom’s attire
  • groomsmen’ attire
  • flowers, and even
  • dessert

Because of this, you’ll likely want a couple of primary colors and then an accent color. If this sounds overwhelming to you, there are many ways to get started. You can consult the color wheel, which helps you to identify complementary, monochromatic and analogous color schemes or find inspiration on Pinterest or other wedding websites.
