Are you planning your wedding and thinking about color schemes? I know that it can feel either super stressful or fun when deciding. Of course, I want to give you some fun practical tips in how to choose the colors that best suit you and your fiance. Let's leave behind worry, and jump into some FUN ideas to get the creative juices flowing.
Here are 4 questions to ask yourself when choosing a color scheme:
1) What are you favorite colors OR what colors are you drawn to most?
I ask this question because bottom line is that this wedding day is about you! I love it when I see color and details that reflect the couples' personality. It makes the wedding feel special and all your guests will see all the thought that was put into it. Plus if you like the colors you've chosen, then you will have SO much more fun choosing different details and decor for your wedding day.
2) What season are you getting married in?
The season that you're getting married in can be an inspiration! Getting married in October or November? There are such beautiful deep, rich tones that you can choose from (and they don't have to be burgundy ;)). However, you can allow nature to you decide which colors you want to see throughout your wedding day.
3) Where is your venue?
The actual location of your wedding can have a major influence on the colors you choose. If you're doing an outdoor barn wedding, maybe you want to do a rustic sheik look that incorporates bits of white that tie in with the brown feel..okay that's just my idea, but you get the thought. :) Or, if you're at a winery, maybe the lush greenery gives you an idea. Whatever it may be, just run with it!
4) Forget colors and go with a theme! (Ok, this is not a question, but it's totally an option!)
So for you bold and daring out there, this option could be for you! Love the roaring twenties? Are you and the fiance big Star Wars fans? If you feel like your family and friends would go all in, this could be such a fun option! However, if you choose this, I say GO BIG OR GO HOME!
Do you have any other strategies in picking out your wedding colors? If you've picked your colors already, how did you do it? I'd love to know.
