Selecting colors for your wedding décor is an essential element for a wedding. Some brides may have an inkling of what they like early in the planning process. Others may not have put much thought into their color selection. So where do the brides-to-be begin? Believe it or not, the answer is paint stores. Play with paint chips to see what coloring you like and what color scheme you can create by mixing and matching swatches. Brides may decide on two or three colors but feel free to bump it up to five. Some of the most stunning weddings feature an assortment of colors that produce a particular vision like “Romantic Chic” with hues such as neutral white, mint green, baby pink, and light gray. This distinct color palette harmonizes well with lush greens and pastel blooms that cascade over farm tables creating a dreamy feel to the wedding.

 You may then want to choose several of those extra colors to be your accents. Try having your bridesmaids wear the complimenting accent color, even in different tints to give some variety. Keep in mind, every color many not flatter all skin tones of your bridal party. You may want to try incorporating neutrals in your color palette, and note metallics are just as versatile as other naturals such as whites, ivories, and grays.

A bride may love the color blue and would like to incorporate it in the wedding. However, if she informs her planner and florist just to include blue, they will not know what shade she is referring to. The blue the bride may want could be peacock blue, cobalt, sky, sapphire, navy, or ocean-you get the idea. Every color has a variety of shades and tints. Be very specific as to what you like, so there is no confusion down the road in the planning process.  Make sure to share your paint color samples so your planner and florist are on the same page.

When choosing your colors, brides may want to keep in mind their wedding season. Choosing dark colors such as navy and burgundy may be too dark for a May or June wedding. Play with a bright turquoise or if that is too bright, maybe a pastel pink and muted mint for a softer tone. Working with your wedding season will offer guidance as to what colors will look best for your wedding décor.
