Creating Your Color Palette

Picking your wedding palette isn't exactly as easy as choosing your two favorite colors and making them the foundation for every wedding detail. You should start by nailing down your general aesthetic







START WITH WHAT YOU LOVE!


While Pinterest is a great tool for planning and ideas, we suggest starting with what you love. Your wedding should be an extension of your personality, as well as your relationship. You want your wedding to be beautiful, but you also want it to be a personal statement. So, instead of looking at other people’s weddings, why don’t you start by looking at your own lives. When you buy flowers at the local market, what colors do you tend to pick? What pieces are you most drawn to in a museum? When out shopping for home décor, do you gravitate towards more neutral tones or do you like to make a splash of color? Start asking yourself these questions and you will begin to get an idea of some colors.



DECIDE ON YOUR VIBE!


When you think of your dream wedding, what is its vibe? Is it classic or casual? Is it rustic, boho or vintage? You may also want to make sure that your palette coordinates with your venue. If you have selected a venue or setting that is decorated elegantly utilizing more muted jewel tones, introducing bright flashy colors may not work well.



BE UNEXPECTED!


Guess what? Your colors don’t have to match. They need to coordinate and not clash but, for the most part, your colors can be whatever you want. Colors like navy, burgundy, blush, sage green, and sand might not seem like they work together, but they ultimately do. If you have a skilled wedding designer, they know where to put certain colors to make it all blend together and work well. Do not feel like you must follow trends or pick the “normal” color schemes. But if this is what you truly want, then by all means – go for it! Having an experienced wedding planner is one way to create a fabulous palette
