A wedding is considered to be one of the most important days in any person’s life, so usually, people spend a lot of time and effort in planning it. They want everything to be perfect, and we guess, so do you. There are a lot of details to think over, and your wedding color palette is one of them.

Picking wedding colors may seem to be challenging, but no worries, our guide is here to help you. We have prepared six useful recommendations for you to turn your celebration into a true piece of art, so keep reading to check them out! They will inspire you and add nice colors to your wedding preparations!

Follow Your Dreams

That’s probably the most obvious recommendation, but we will still mention it. So, have you always dreamed about a beautiful wedding decorated with bright purple roses? Great, then do it, and use this color for the overall theme! Or, maybe, you and your fiance love emerald?

Then simply trust your tastes and choose this color for your palette. Don’t give up your dreams and desires, even if they seem to be a bit crazy for a wedding — that’s your day, and the colors should be just perfect to you! So, keep your color priorities in mind. They can be very helpful when choosing wedding color. To get some examples of what a nice wedding should look like, you can always check the website of the best wedding photographer in Punta Cana.

Do It the Other Way Around

If you have too many colors in mind, try to choose the palette the other way around. Make a list of colors and cross out those which you hate or simply don’t want them “to attend” your wedding. Even if you a have the slightest doubt regarding a particular color, cross it out! At the end you will have fewer color options to choose from, so you can move to the next tips to decide which of them will suit your wedding the best.

Consider Your Wedding’s Location

Finding a nice venue for your wedding celebration is another challenging task, but let’s imagine that you have already made this choice. So, you have the venue, what’s next? Well, explore it carefully and find out what colors will suit it. For instance, a venue designed mostly in grey colors will look very nice with raspberry color decorations.

However, here is an extra recommendation for you regarding the location: if you are flexible in terms of colors, feel free to find a venue which will meet all your needs (space, menu, price, and so on), and then think about the color scheme. However, if you have any specific ideas about colors, keep them in mind when looking for a venue.

Let’s say, a bright blue is a must, but the venue is all about orange color! Bright blue and orange don’t look good together, so you will probably have to choose another venue even if all the other factors are okay. That’s why it is crucial to set your color priorities from the start — they may have an impact on such an important component of your wedding as location.

Rely on the Wedding Date

Relying on your wedding date is another great way to narrow down the list of potential colors. Are you getting married in the winter? Then consider white, purple, violet, and diverse shades of blue. If you chose summer, pay attention to such colors as lemon, coral, green, and others. Just think what colors you associate with the season you chose for the wedding, or take a look at different seasonal color schemes available on the Internet.

Keep in Mind Your Bridal Theme

The colors you choose have to work with the overall theme of your wedding. Otherwise, your celebration may turn into a color disaster. For instance, you and your fiance want to have a memorable steampunk wedding. That’s great, and we like the idea! Besides, such a style will also shorten the list of potential colors. A bright mint color won’t look good here, but you can try bronze, copper, and gold colors instead. To take a look at some examples (not steampunk, but still!), view wedding photo — photography can be a great source of inspiration, so why not?

Go for Contrast

Let’s imagine that you have already chosen one color. Great, but don’t apply this color to every component of your wedding. What would happen if the venue, your dress, flowers, decorations, plates, and other things which can usually be found at a wedding, would have the same deep green hue? It will look boring. That’s why we recommend you go for the contrast — this trick will help you to make your wedding more stylish and memorable.

Bottom Line

So, our guide on how to pick wedding colors is almost over, but we have an extra tip for you. We know, there are a lot of things to do before your wedding, and you want everything to be as perfect as possible in order to be happy and impress every single guest. But don’t go too far. Nothing will go wrong if a small candlestick in the window of your venue is a bit too dull for your wedding — such a tiny detail won’t spoil the overall design! So don’t get stressed, let the color be a nice compliment to your wedding, not its main part.
