Your wedding day is all about you and your fiance, but that doesn’t mean that your guests won’t be an important part of the day too! After all, they are the ones who will be sharing in your joy and helping you to celebrate one of the most important days of your life. So, how can you make sure that your guests feel just as special as you do on your big day? By choosing the perfect wedding colors, of course!
Not sure where to start? Here are 5 tips to help you pick the perfect colors for your wedding:
- Consider the time of year.
Are you getting married in the springtime? The summer? The fall? The winter? The season in which you’re getting married can help to narrow down the color palette for your big day. For example, if you’re getting married in the springtime, you might want to consider using softer, more delicate colors like pale pink or baby blue. If you’re getting married in the summertime, however, you might want to opt for brighter, bolder colors like sunshine yellow or fire engine red.
- Consider the location.
Is your ceremony going to be held outdoors? Indoors? At a church? At a banquet hall? The location of your ceremony can also help to narrow down the color palette for your wedding. For example, if you’re getting married outdoors on a beautiful summer day, you might want to use colors that reflect the natural beauty of your surroundings like green and brown. If you’re getting married indoors at a church, on the other hand, you might want to use classic colors like white and ivory.
- Consider your own personal style.
This is YOUR big day, so it’s important that YOU feel comfortable and confident on YOUR big day! When choosing the colors for your wedding, be sure to consider what YOU like and what makes YOU feel good. If you’re not sure what YOUR personal style is, take some time to browse through magazines or online wedding sites for inspiration. Once you’ve found a color palette that YOU love, run it past your fiance and see if THEY have any input too! After all, this is supposed to be a day that celebrates both of YOU!
- Consider your guest list.
Are most of your guests going to be children? Adults? Elderly relatives? Family friends? Co-workers? College friends? The age group of your guests can help to narrow down the color palette for your wedding. For example, if most of your guests are going to be young children, you might want to avoid using very dark colors or very bright colors which can be overwhelming for little ones. If most of your guests are adults, on the other hand, feel free to experiment with different color combinations!
- Consider the overall tone of your wedding day.
Do you want your wedding day to be a fun and festive celebration? A romantic and elegant affair? A laid-back and relaxed gathering? The overall tone of your wedding can also help to guide you in choosing the perfect colors for your big day. For example, if you want your wedding day to be a fun and festive celebration, bright and cheerful colors like orange and pink might be perfect for you! If you’re looking for something a little more romantic and elegant, however, muted tones like lavender or peach might be more up your alley.
Choosing the perfect colors for YOUR wedding day doesn’t have to be difficult! By following these simple tips—and by keeping YOUR own personal style in mind—you’ll be well on YOUR way to picking out THE perfect palette for YOUR big day!
