Tips and Tricks for Picking a Color Palette

One of the very first places to start when planning your wedding is picking a color palette. Colors are the base of your wedding aesthetic; It’s so important to pick your dream palette and build the rest of your decorations and overall vibe from there. We’re here to give you some tips on how to pick the perfect color scheme for your big day. 

Planning a wedding is a huge process, so starting small is utterly important. Therefore, we recommend sticking to 3-5 main colors that you want to work with. It’s important that these colors reflect exactly what you want, while also blending cohesively. Start with the first color you have in mind and go from there. Neutral tones are beautiful for a wedding, but don’t be shy to jump out of your comfort zone. Just because it’s a wedding doesn’t mean you have to stick to whites and creams; A jewel toned palette is a spunky and different way to create a unique look for your big event.

Use the venue as inspiration! If your venue is rustic and modern, neutral tones are a great compliment. For an outdoor venue, bright colors are a stunning addition that will create an overall beautiful vibe. 

Don’t be afraid to go big! Try incorporating metallic elements, such as gold or silver, to spice things up. These can be a part of your palette too! 

Choose colors that you look good in! Even though you won’t necessarily be wearing the colors, having tones that suit you well will do wonders in photographs. 

Pick a highlight color. A fun way to add pops of color is to choose a bright tone that you can incorporate into small details and floral arrangements. This is a great way to keep things neutral while also adding some life. This is a great option, especially if you’re worried about bright colors being too overbearing.

Pick one main color and play with tones. Love the color pink? Choose a color palette with several different shades of pink to keep things monochrome but fun. Different shades of the same color make for beautiful floral arrangements that are striking, while also keeping an overall theme.
