One of the very first questions people will ask after you announce your engagement is, “What are your colors?” They are an important part of your big day and should be chosen wisely. Your colors are an extension of you and what you choose will affect everything. Think about it, from the ink to your flowers to cakes and dresses, the color palette is a big deal.
Color is a very personal choice so try to think of what certain colors mean to you. Was there a deep pink lipstick your grandmother always wore? Did your mom love purple hydrangeas? Are you smitten with the deep, blue Colorado sky? Whatever you choose, be sure to add your personality. The previous examples are the perfect way to incorporate the things you love into your color scheme. For instance, if you opt for soft shades of pink, a deep pink is really going to pop and add meaning for you. Or if all white is your choice, a hint of deep blue or purple is going to take it to the next level while still being deeply personal.
When it comes to seasons, please don’t do predictable. Here are a few suggestions:
Spring: Brides tend to think pastels. Change it up by adding touches of deep greens or oranges and corals.
Summer: Now is the time to be bold! Go for yellows, purples, reds or blues.
Fall: Orange and brown is a little cliche. Try champagne and lavender instead.
Winter: Metallics are simply stunning for a winter wedding. Pewter and silver lend a hint of cool sophistication, while bronze, gold, and copper add depth and warmth.
