Picking Your Wedding Colors

One of the first things you will want to do after you have selected your venues is to decide on your wedding colors.

Bring color to your reception by throwing on a bold color table linen. There’s no need to go with white linens anymore with all the wonderful color choices available.

You could also go with a linen with texture like a pintuck or embroidered linen. For a beach wedding you can never go wrong with turquoise.

Pick three colors for your wedding palette. Your favorite color should make the statement reflecting your personalities whereas the other two colors should be more subtle and add depth and texture to your d├ęcor.

Take a look at a color wheel. Pick out your favorite color, then look directly across the color wheel and use that color as your secondary color. They compliment each other. Turquoise and red is one of my favorite new combinations. Another lovely combination is turquoise and fuchsia. For a garden wedding, try apple green (or lime green) with your favorite shade of pink. Most of all let the season and your surroundings help you decide on how bold or soft your color palette should be.
